What else can you say about Sasha? He’s an ordinary teenager: sometimes he has mood swings, but all in all, he’s really easy to deal with – you need only to choose the right words for him. He also feels kindness towards him and gratefully responds back.

The young man becomes quickly offended, however, when someone carelessly makes rude remarks towards parents – it doesn’t matter whose – his own or his friends’. He cannot stand it even though he doesn’t remember his mom and dad.

Sasha wants to become a bricklayer. Why? He told me that one time he, together with some other children and their manual training teacher, built “Shevchenko’s house” with their own hands. Despite the fact that the house is not completed yet, and there are many things to do, the lad has already experienced the taste of this challenging profession, of a real man’s work.

Sasha also attends professional courses of natural handcrafts. And he surely loves playing football! He finds goalkeeper boring, so he prefers kicking the ball around the field. Sasha gets along with the ‘local’ guys pretty well; he says that they are not bad, and don’t offend ‘the orphanage’ boys. Sasha is a very versatile young man!

It’s clear that he won’t do well without your support. There are four-and-a-half years left till his school graduation. So, there’s still enough time to give the boy the love of the family: your family.

Sasha is living in the boarding school.
