Vitalic's story is rather complicated. Although the boy has a foster family, he's still staying in the orphanage. Let's hope that the situation will change for better!

Vitalic looks like a Little Prince not only with his outward appearance. You know, he is reticent a little to children and to grown-ups equally, but it is not very easy for him to make a lot of friends. And this is not surprising: the boy has never known a family life so he does not have the experience how to live in a family. But at the same time, if somebody is kind to the boy he becomes very open-hearted and amazing.

“Vitalic is a very grateful boy, hardships haven’t made him embittered”, says his teacher who has recently found out the boy’s endowments and who has inspired him. And the result did not keep waiting: the boy has won the regional elimination contests of the all-Ukrainian Fest “Towards Your Dream” with his work “My Dream”. Our hero worried very much as it was his first public performance! He was afraid to make a mistake and to be laughed at. But Vitalic has really enthralled both the audience and jury by his sincerity and frankness.

In his essay he told about his affecting dream: “Now my family and my home is a boarding- school where I have got an understanding and have been valued”, the boy said, “but my dream is to have my own family and home. And when I grow up I will become a writer and tell my son about everything... ”

Don’t think Vitalic only writes the poems and has his head in the clouds. He is a keen and great guy. He likes to watch the fish in the aquarium. He likes nature and traveling as well as various domestic electric appliances. He spends long hours at the school workshop, he adores to disassemble and repair tape-recorders, of course, yet with the help of his more experienced teachers and friends, but he can easily repair a wall outlet by himself.

Vitalic lives at the boarding school (orphanage), where most of children have their families: parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles. These children are visited by their relatives, they are taken home on holidays and weekends, they are phoned and written letters. He is one from a few who spends almost all his life here. I was always interested what the “state children” thought about family life having never known it from their birth till now but dreaming about it obsessively. I asked Vitalic about it. “Love is a key condition for any family to be happy. If you have a family – you have everything…” was the answer of this wonderful boy. Listen to your heart… May be, it will prompt that just you are the magician who will make the Child’s Dream come true, - the Dream about the family…

If you are interested in adopting Vitalic or other children, please read the memo to the potential adoptive parents, guardians, and foster parents or contact us or provide profile #0056110 to the State Department of Adoption.

Other children to be adopted.

If you are not ready to adopt (e.g. you are student and haven’t created your own family yet) you can also help the children from the boarding school (orphanage) by supporting organizationally or financially different excursions and trips for the children, visiting a child in the orphanage, or helping with buying developmental toys, books, construction sets and sport equipment.
