A Child Needs A Family: Maxim K., born in 2001

November 2, 2011, 16:40 5572 Author: Victoria Mochalova, translated by Daria Sukach www.deti.zp.ua Maxim is 18 years old now


Maxim smiles mischievously and speaks with a sweet tone. One cannot help feeling fond of this cute boy.


It’s not a secret that if someone doesn’t behave well he or she is not happy. Happy people are easy to communicate with and they don’t make problems for other people. You start to feel it in orphanages as well. It’s not really possible to find problem free children there since nobody really cares for them. No one needs them as a special boy or girl.

Maxim loves reading fairy tales, especially “Little Red Riding Hood”. He also likes running and eating ice-cream. Maxim is good at making up different games. The boy’s secret nickname is “a mop’s friend”. The boy doesn’t get offended by being called this name. Max is very diligent and likes cleaning. And he dreams of living in a family.


If you are interested in adopting Maxim, please read the memo to the potential adoptive parents, guardians, and foster parents; you can also contact Children’s Affairs' service of the Zaporozhia State Administration by telephone (061) 239-01-56. Request the Profile Number of Maxim accordingly to the orphan list # 0057290.
