Hi, my name is Kristen Markey and I am twenty one years old. I live in Budapest Hungary with my mom. I have lived in Hungary for ten years in a little village called Vajta, but I just now moved to the city. The reason why I am with my mom is Because my mom is a missionary / teacher at a Bible College in Hungary. She teaches the Biblical Mission’s Program.
I was born in Kiev, Ukraine. My whole family moved there in 1992. I have eight siblings, four sisters and four brothers. I am the youngest of nine children. They are all Americans and I was adopted four years after they moved. My sister Rhonda Kay and her friend were visiting baby’s in a Ukrainian Hospital. and after a while they find me when I was only a few month old. I was born with fetal alcohol syndrome, and I had a hole in my heart. I had no name, so they had decided to name me Kristen Hope. They wrote letters to people in the States to help raise money for my surgery. They responded, sent the money, and I had the operation. Months later I was adopted by the Markey Family.

For now I am living in Hungary but next year I will go to Shepherds College in Wisconsin. I am very nervous and could use a lot of prayer.
My favorite things to do are: watch movies / TV shows ( Lord of the rings, Doctor Who, Mission Impossible, etc), swing with my music on,and climb trees. I love making friends and Traveling. I am only 4.8″, but give amazing hugs. I love talking to people and I love encouraging them.
