A mother and her 13-year-old son have found refuge in Little Ferry as Ukraine continues to be torn apart by war.
Olga Tutov and her son Andrii are living with her sister. Although they are safe, the cost has been high for them. They had to leave behind their lives and their family, not knowing when they will see their loved ones again.
Tutov's husband, Vitaliy, remains in Ukraine, living with friends just outside Kiev.
The two speak every day, but Andrii says he really wants his dad to come to the U.S.
Tutov's journey to the U.S. is unique, and she hopes to return home to the Ukraine. She believes the persistence of her country will win out.
