NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) -- Chris and Debbie Rowan are about to add a 14-year-old Ukranian girl to their family.
Her name is Ana.

They got the idea to adopt from their 11-year-old daughter who has always wanted a big sister.

The Rowans fostered Ana for four weeks during Christmas of last year.

Ever since, she's owned a piece of their hearts.
The Rowans just got back from Ukraine last week.

They're excited to give Ana a loving home.

"I'm so excited," Christinan Rowan said. "I love it so much because I've always wanted a big sister and I just can't wait til she gets here."

They've raised the money to adopt Ana with some help from their church.

They still need about $17,000 to make the adoption official.

To follow the Rowan's adoption story, check out their blog:

They hope to have Ana at home by the end of August.
