A profound “openness to life” led Joe and Tiffany Ampe to adopt two children with special needs from Ukraine four years ago, a decision which later opened opportunities to help those affected by war. “It was such a blessing to bring these boys home,” says Joe, “and the blessings never stopped pouring out.”
The Ampe family prays the rosary at their home in Marquette, Michigan.
‘Our Only Option Was to Go’Joe and Tiffany Ampe were expecting their eighth child in 2018 when they saw a photo of a Ukrainian baby with special needs on an advocacy website.

Since February, they have made three more trips to Ukraine, bringing desperately needed medical supplies collected with help from Joe’s brother Knights. WATCH HERE
