We are the Austin chapter of Families for Russian and Ukrainian Adoptions (FRUA).  FRUA is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit support network for adoptive families with children from the former Soviet Republics and neighboring countries. We have children from Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, and Tadzhikistan, as well as Russia and the Ukraine.

For a small annual fee, members have access to information and events that address the specific needs of our families. We also have a Yahoo! Group email list that provides a forum for advice and advocates adoption.
