Diane Sadovnikov may have been the best mom in the world, at least according to her two daughters. And in addition to caring for them, as director of the Sense Resource Center, Diane facilitated adoptions for more than 300 Ukrainian orphans.
Co-workers said she had a good eye for finding excellent adoptive parents.
This turned out to be an ability she needed to use one final time, for a last adoption -- that of her own two children.
When she was diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer, Diana, a single mother with few relatives, started searching for new parents for her children.
