While most international media outlets are focusing on the heavy flow of Ukrainian refugees into Poland, a growing number are seeking refuge in neighboring Romania and Moldova, much smaller countries that have already seen hundreds of thousands of people cross the borders.

Some women are leaving their kids with family members or in foster care and returning to the front lines to rejoin the fight against the invaders.

What will become of these children of war? Who will take responsibility for them? And how will the loss of these kids reshape Ukrainian society at a time when adults are facing battles on the front lines with Russia?
