The two children highlighted here are among 31 orphans from Sumy, Ukraine, whose arrival in Salt Lake City was covered in the Oct. 23 edition of the Deseret Morning News. They are among the millions of orphaned children worldwide between the ages of 6 and 15 and are here as part of a cultural exchange and in hopes of meeting adoptive families. The group, sponsored by Save a Child Foundation, is scheduled to return to Europe on Tuesday.
