What People Are Saying

“We had given up the idea of adopting until we met David Avilla of Advocate for Orphans International.”


“When we were there an issue came up that he was able to resolve immediately while other families had to stay there for 5 or 6 extra weeks to resolve a similar issue.”

“From the very beginning he was very honest with us about the uncertainly of the process.  He never sugarcoated the truth and never made any guarantees to us.”

“David provided detailed step by step instructions on how to complete all the required paperwork.”

“From the very beginning, David was always honest and upfront with us about the process and the expenses involved.”

“We give David the highest praise for generously giving us his time, always being available and ready to listen to our fears and concerns (often unfounded), always encouraging us, and providing a shoulder to lean on and a friendly ear to vent our frustrations (not with David, but with the length and complexity of the process).”

“I would recommend working with David to my friends and family without hesitation.”

“David had an open door policy when it came to listening to our complaints and frustrations.”


“All the costs were exactly as David outlined in the beginning of the process – there were no surprises.”

He is generous with his time and stays in touch every step of the way, offering guidance with the enormous paperwork process and encouragement in a journey where no two experiences are ever the same.”


“One of the biggest assets that David’s organization has – is their Ukrainian partners.”

“And though we were terrified of making emotional and financial commitments without having any guarantee of what a final outcome would be, we appreciated David’s direct approach and his honesty.”


“When we actually traveled and met with David’s Ukrainian partners – they are courteous, dedicated and professional.  But most importantly, we could observe first-hand how their knowledge and connections made the process run smoothly and completed in record time.”

“We felt safe and completely taken care of.”

“David’s pre-packaged and tested document repository really made the complicated paperwork process as easy as it can possibly be.”

“In the end, everything occurred exactly as predicted – the process for us was accurate down to the minute as explained to us before we traveled to Ukraine.”

“Each document was the correct document and accurate verbiage as a result of David’s experience with this process. By following his directions, we had the right thing to the right social worker, fingerprinter, translator, courier, and/or government office, foreign and domestic, on time and in the right sequence.”

“I am grateful for the assistance, support, and friendship from David throughout this process.”

“David was genuinely interested in helping us to go through the process as smoothly and painlessly as he could.”
