Psalm 68:5-6

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

I am Stepanie Nance. My family adopted two little boys with Down Syndrome from Ukraine in 2010. I hope to educate and to inspire you. I hope to make you laugh and to make you cry.

Come along for the ride. It's a wild one!

We will not forget you.

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget, I will not forget you!”
Isaiah 49:15

You cannot see him well, but there is a little boy in that playpen. I sang songs to him daily last summer while I waited for Theo to be dressed for our visit. This is as close as I was allowed to get.

This little boy will likely not be adopted, even if he is registered. He has surely been transferred to the institution by now. He is the reason that TLC exists. I refuse to simply forget him.

Project TLC desires to serve the children we left behind. We desire to be distinctively Christian. For those reasons and many more we have chosen to partner with His Kids Too!, an experienced, Christian charity recognized in the USA and Ukraine. Your generous gifts to TLC will be administered by His Kids Too! and are deductible as allowed by law.

While we do occasionally work in concert with other Christian aid groups working in Crimea, we are not officially connected to any other aid group or ministry. We look forward to tackling work that has been prepared for us.

We won't forget.


  1. I am so BLESSED to know such a strong woman!!!! Stephanie you are such an inspiration and I know you will do miraculous things for those precious gems still waiting!!!!!!

  2. Thank you Summer! Right back at ya. :)

  3. Keep up the good work! It is so important!

    God bless you,


  4. I wish I knew more about him, so I could help.
    It bothers me that they won't let visiting adoptive parents even see some of those kids who are put away like that.
