Mass. Mom, Newly Adopted Daughter Stuck in Ukraine

UKRAINE MOMBOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts woman is stuck in the Ukraine after traveling there to bring home her newly adopted daughter.

Christine Caswell McCarron says she’s been in Kiev for three weeks while waiting for a passport for her 11-year-old daughter. She says the Ukrainian government has decided to print new passports, leading to the delay.

McCarron says she’s bonded with a number of other American families who are stuck for the same reason.

U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch tells the Boston Herald he’s pushing the State Department to help the Dedham woman get home.

McCarron and her husband finalized the adoption of their new daughter, Kristina, last month. The family says it met Kristina last year through a cultural exchange program for orphans and had her visit at Christmas.
