Vitalik from the boarding school #3 was sitting nearby quieter than a mouse. Answering all my questions, he felt silent and looked so attentively into my eyes when he didn’t know what else to say. While talking I understood he could be very different: he seems to be a meek person but dreams to learn break dancing and learns it in every free minute. People say he likes to cut out various figures from colorful paper meanwhile he is fond of soccer. I was little embarrassed because of the feeling that faces of two different boys are looking at me: one of them is curious, bright and happy and other one is sad, hidden in himself, and seen so much misfortune around. But I understood that these trusting childs’ eyes need so little and at the same time so much to start shining and glowing with happiness: Vitalik needs family. In embrace of loving mom and dad quiet boy from the boarding school, Vitalik, could become a bright little fellow like his favorite cartoon hero Nutcracker.
