The story of Wide Awake International began in the summer of 2010 when Kim Johnson, one of our co-founders, stumbled upon a blog about the adoption of children with disabilities from Ukraine. Shortly after that she started her own blog and has been sharing our story with the Wide Awake Community ever since.
On this page, you will find all the latest news about what we are up to here in Ukraine from the different outlets where we share: the blog, the podcast, and YouTube- all of it is here, in one place! If you want to dig into our history (and have several hours to spare…) you can find our archives here and go all the way back to the beginning of our story.
You won’t find us on social media, so we have created “The Latest” as a way to engage with each of you who has opened your heart to this work. Feel free to comment, ask questions, and dig around to your heart’s content. You are welcome here!
PS: If you want to hear even more from us you can sign up to receive our weekly newsletter where we share stories and photos from each week. You can sign up here.
