Children adopted from Russia are not limited to the United States, but, all over the world. We are working to connect people across the U.S for meet ups, host events that we can all partake in and advocate for the rights of people adopted from Russia.
MEET OUR COMMITTEE
David Schunk, President
David Schunk is graduating from Champlain College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Networking & Cyber Security this year. David has since been involved with many adoption advocate groups as well as creating a fundraising project for his orphanage in Russia during his years in college. David continues to get more and more involved with adoption policies within the United States. His dream is one day Russia will lift the ban for US citizens to adopt Russian children.
