Dmitry already celebrated New Year with his new family! This is the greatest present for us!

The boy took his seat next to me, with a tense expression on his face: his desire to find parents is not less than in the early childhood, maybe even stronger. And he knows that he is already not so small, so his chances are pretty low.

Little by little Dmitry relaxed a bit, and as soon as he did I could see that he has got an amazing sense of humor. Unfortunately, I am not able to demonstrate it in my article, but I hope that at least the camera was able to catch some of his unbelievable charm.

Dmitry is a diligent student, and reads a lot. Now he is very fond of mythology. But he is not just a bookworm. Although you can often find him reflecting or daydreaming, this boy is an active sportsman – he plays tennis, basketball, football, and pool. And he is one of few children who go to train in the municipal Sports Center.

Besides, he is a musician, playing several musical instruments: the dombra, guitar, and drums. And he is good at it! What is interesting is that he has got the same favorite band as the boys from my childhood – Metallica. Nice, isn’t it?

If you are interested in adopting Dmitry, 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 Dmitry accordingly to the orphan list # 0055250.

Other children who dream of finding a family

If for some reason you are currently not able to adopt (for example, you are a student and do not have a family of your own yet) you are still able to help children at a boarding school (an orphanage) with your financial support. Ways you can help include: planning and participating in excursions and trips for children; visiting a child in an orphanage; or helping purchase developmental toys, books, construction sets, and sports equipment.
