SRC HISTORY

     Sharon Liddle, Sally Rowland, Mike Flynn, 
Bernadette Neiheiser, & Diane Sadovnikov (l to r)
 
The founder of SRC, Diane Sadovnikov first went to Ukraine in 1993, introducing a Christian Ethics & Morality curriculum in the public school system at the invitation of the local Ministry of Education in Odessa.  She became deeply attached to Ukraine during her first year there, and returned for a second year in Odessa.  After that, Diane moved to Kyiv in her third year, where she worked providing logistical services to various groups coming in to Ukraine for humanitarian and missionary work.   In 1996, when the moratorium against foreign adoption was lifted in Ukraine, Diane began informally helping a few families adopt.  In 1997, she helped 4 families, then 12 in 1998 under the name Management Services International, which was primarily providing travel & translation services in Ukraine.  At that point, feeling a commitment to help children and families, our staff decided to expand the adoption work, and Diane traveled to the US to incorporate a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called Sense Resource Center, Inc. 

 

Letter from Diane:  A HOPE & A FUTURE

The reason I was interested in adoption work, was the result of a picture I saw in the museum in Kyiv dedicated to World War II in the fall of 1995.    The photo is a wall-sized black and white photograph, larger than life size, of toddlers in a children's prison camp.  The children are all naked, clearly starving and cold, and reaching through a chain link fence toward the photographer.  Their appeal for help haunted me for weeks after seeing the photograph, but I could not see how I could help these children who are long gone from this camp.  Still, I could not shake the need I felt to do something. 

   Finally, I committed in my heart to help needy children wherever I happen to live, and this brought me the peace that I had been missing.  I began working as a volunteer in an orphanage in Kiev, but with the birth of my first daughter, I was unable to continue this.  About this time, adoptions became legal in Ukraine again, and couples began to approach me about helping with adoption.  Our work with Ukrainian orphans has become my way to help as many children as possible find a hope and a future in loving families.
