Russia’s Ukraine Invasion has led many people to escape their native country. In the difficult circumstances, a couple made it safely back to their Costa Mesa home after travelling to Ukraine to pick up their new baby daughter from a Ukrainian surrogate mother.

Jessie and Jacob Boeckmann made a perilous escape to the Ukrainian-Polish border in 30-degree weather. Every 10 to 20 minutes, the couple checked to make sure that Vivian, their days-old infant, was warm enough and still breathing.
