Topeka Family Finally Home From Ukraine

TOPEKA, Kan. - A Kansas couple and their four newly adopted children have made it home after a grueling trip to Ukraine, where civil unrest delayed their return for weeks.
Don and Lisa Jenkins arrived in Ukraine on Feb. 2 and had hoped to finalize the adoptions of their four children by Valentine's Day. Those plans came to a halt when thousands of people took to the streets to protest the government's movement toward Russia.
Much of the fighting in Kiev happened just a mile from the apartment where the Jenkinses were staying. After the fighting died down, the family faced numerous delays in getting paperwork from the Ukrainian government.
They left Kiev at 6:30 a.m. Saturday and landed in Kansas City, Mo. around 9 p.m. that night.
