Who Are the Ukrainian Angels?

Ukrainian Angels is the advisory service of Cathy Harris, a U.S. woman who has independently adopted seven children from Ukraine and gives assistance to other interested families with adoption procedures and contacts. As of 2016, she claims to have helped over 800 families adopt more than 1 100 Ukrainian children.

The website doesn't advertise Ukrainian Angels as a commercial service. A couple, Doug and Marsha Woolley, who chronicled their adoption procedure, however, mentions signing a contract and paying a total of $1,000 for her assistance through a company called Ukrainian Angels, Inc.

Ukrainian Angels keeps a list of families it has successfully assisted on the Web page. Although those families' identities are not published, Harris claims she can facilitate contact with several of them for reference. The advisory site Adopt Ukraine recommends her.
