WELCOME TO FAMILIES FOR RUSSIAN & UKRAINIAN ADOPTIONSM (FRUASM),
a 501(c)(3) parent support organization.
With chapters across the US and members around the world, FRUA provides international adoption support resources for families completed through adoption in Eastern European and Central Asian countries. FRUA offers family and adoption education resources, including the FRUA National Education Conference, it's journal The Family Focus, and a supportive community that nurtures adopted children and supports parents and families.
The adopted children of FRUA's families come from all former Soviet bloc countries and republics, including Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, Belarus, Romania and many more. FRUA believes that every child deserves a forever family and celebrates the rich heritage of our children's birth countries. Our Orphan Support efforts ensure we never forget the children left behind in those orphanages.
FRUA announces its scholarship program for 2013!
This year, FRUA offers two $1,000 scholarships, one each for a high school senior and a returning/continuing post-secondary student. Click here for more info.
