TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka couple trying to bring their four adopted children home from Ukraine remain stuck in the capital city of Kiev, awaiting passports from the new government.

Don and Lisa Jenkins, who also have two grown sons, went to Ukraine in early February to finalize the adoptions of three teenage girls and a 9-year-old boy. But the process has been derailed first by violent protests, then by the installation of a new government.

Don Jenkins told WIBW Radio (https://bit.ly/1jPYg5y ) on Tuesday that some of the Ukrainian officials who could have helped have fled.

Jenkins said money is getting “a little scarce” while he and his wife and the four children wait for the children’s passports to come through. He says the U.S. Embassy has been unable to help.
