Marilyn and Tom:

Ruslan did a great job finding our daughter's birthmother and family and did so in a timely manner. We were given family pictures that are priceless. Even though information was different than what we expected, it is good to know the truth. We would highly recommend Ruslan and we were very pleased with his work

He demonstrated a great sense of compassion and privacy to our birth moms. His reports were thorough and informative. We highly recommend him to find birth moms.

Mark and Carolyn, New Hamphire:

We're very thankful that we conducted the search. At the time we traveled to the Ukraine to adopt our two children, the political climate was uncertain and there were many obstacles to overcome. We were then, understandably skeptical to conduct a search, not knowing about the reliability of the information that would be given. Now that the search is completed, we are thrilled and relieved to find that we have been given accurate information.

With confidence we can advise that anyone considering conducting such a search using Ruslan can put those doubts out of their minds. We're impressed with the professionalism and tact Ruslan and the searcher used to approach the birth relatives and to convey information to us. All communication was done both kindly and truthfully. Translators seem to have bridged any cultural barriers effectively, engaging in dialogue with parties from different countries and of varying cultural backgrounds. Although truthful information can at times be difficult to process and absorb, the outcry of adult adoptees seems to have been a clear interest in being told the truth. We know that our children will be thankful for these missing pieces to their life stories now found.

Mark and Dawn, VA

My wife and I are very appreciative of the work Anna, Ruslan and Leva have done for our family. Our daughter now has information about her birthmom and family that fills a very important gap for her development as a young adult and important family medical information. We thank them for the work they did requires a lot of tact and understanding. In our case, our daughters B-mom had remarried and it would have been very easy to put her on the defensive, instead of that, we've come away with an invitation to establish a deeper contact with their entire family.

Marla and Dan Peters

We have two children adopted from Russia: a son (Nicholas) in 2001 and a daughter (Katerina) in 2003. We did have some information on our childrens' backgrounds. We always wondered if there was more out there for us to obtain. Good friends of ours referred us to Ruslan and his team. We contacted them in 2005 with our requests. His assistant, Leva, was able to locate and meet with the birth family of Katerina and gave them a letter from us (that he translated), along with photos of Katerina that we provided. After the initial meeting, he provided us with full names, an address, history and circumstances of birth, etc. which came in a form of a 4 1/2 page report with 40 photos.

Leva was considerate of the birthmom and reassured her of why he was searching for her. We remained totally anonymous with the birth family (a decision made on our part).Ruslan and his team also began the very difficult search for Nicholas's birthmom (who abandoned him a few days after giving birth) and who left no forwarding address. Ruslan and his team tried effortlessly to locate her. They tried all search possibilities to no avail. We were kept informed throughout the entire search regarding the status of trying to locate her. We're extremely saddened that our son will never know his "true" background. We commend Ruslan and his team for all their hard-earned efforts.Ruslan and Leva were extremely honest and professional throughout our entire search. We highly recommend them. The best advice I can give to you is not to have any doubts about using their services. I recommend doing the search on your child's/childrens' background! This information is such a treasure to have. The fees charged are so reasonable for the amount of time and effort that takes place in doing such a search. No price can be put on something so priceless!

Ruslan completed a birthparent search for us in September 2004. He visited my daughter’s birthmother, sibling and grandfather, who all live together. Ruslan obtained family information, medical information, and he has answered the question my daughter will most likely ask, “Why did she leave me at an orphanage?” Ruslan sent us pictures of the area surrounding their flat; the flat, itself; and all of the family he met. He also sent us a map to help us understand where they live. The pictures are priceless! It is amazing to see my daughter’s half sibling and the physical similarities! I do not know if my daughter will be interested in her birth family as she grows up, but if so, I can now provide her with these pictures and the information obtained.

Ruslan was helpful throughout the process of searching. He provided us with his own assessment of the family, helping us to understand the information he obtained. This was invaluable, considering the cultural differences. We highly recommend him!

Mary, Pennsylvania:

By the time I made the decision to search for my children's birth parents at least six years had passed from the time of adoption and seven years from relinquishment. I was far from hopeful but decided to let the chips fall as they may.

I contacted Anna and Ruslan and got immediate feedback regarding paper work required. After Ruslan had finished reviewing the documents I received a quote and if accepted I was requested to send some photos, which I did . I was very impressed with the response from Anna every time I had a question...even if she needed to hear back from Ruslan I never seemed to have to wait more than 24 hours.

I was informed that the Almaty search would occur in about six months from the time of my signing on. So here I am, about six months later with a report and pictures in hand to share with my son when time dictates. It turns out that his birth mother had moved since relinquishment but this did not deter Ruslan's team as they were able to find her new residence through repeated visits and attempts. I am grateful that they had the fortitude to continue.
The birth family was hesitant when first approached but their fears seemed to be lessened as the information was shared and the searcher verified his position. The information accrued was exactly what I had requested; family history, medical info and then some. The many photos are priceless! I am forever grateful to Anna and Ruslan as this part of my son's background will no longer be a question.

Maureen, Massachusetts:

I was very pleased with Ruslan's report on my daughter who was adopted from Krasnoyarsk in August, 1999. Although her birthmother had moved a few times, Ruslan and associates was able to contact her and her birthmother answered so many questions for us. It was a great report that was very positive and detailed, along with so many pictures! We were very happy and it was great to get all the family medical history, as well as all the information on her mother and grandparents. It was also great to know her mother had felt so grateful that her daughter was with a loving family. It was a great resource, and I would highly recommend Ruslan.

Melissa:

We contacted Ruslan in June 2002 originally to find our birthmother. We had very little info to go on as they said our son was abondoned at the hospital and the only address they had on her was actually from Russia where she was origianlly from. Ruslan had a friend in Russia go to her home town and although he got some info they did not know where she had gone. So we felt we had hit a dead end and gave up for the time being. Then six months later I knew if we did not try again soon we would loose any chance of finding her so with the little info he had gathered in Russia he began his search in the town in Ukraine my son was born and exactly how he did it I do not know but he did find her.

Because open adoption is not a widely accepted practice in Ukraine, Ruslan comes up against many obsticals but he truly handles all situations with tenderness and compassion. Finding birth parents is very emotional and he is very capable of comforting the parents when he meets them. His report of their meeting was very thorough including several digital photos he emailed along with it. When we saw our birthmothers photos there was no doubt she was our sons mother.

I do recommend him. He has devoted himself full time to this now and is helping contact many families. Anna is also vry trustworthy. She is one of the families from our group who adopted in Ukraine. They were both very up front with us and understand concerns about legitimicy. They charged what only what they told us and nothing more, no hidden cost.
