This sunny boy has found his loving family in the USA!

Although this sunny, cheerful boy cannot speak, it does not prevent him from enjoying his life to the fullest. Ruslan loves to play football very much. He also enjoys bead weaving, drawing and decorating pictures.

Studying is not as easy for Ruslan as it is for other children. He can already distinguish colors though. Besides, Ruslan knows letters and figures and even assists his teacher by showing letters to his classmates.

Ruslan likes to watch TV very much. He enjoys learning new things. Like any other child he sometimes gets offended by other kids but he is also able to stand up for himself.

This child is really open-hearted. He likes to spend time in the open air as well as at the seaside. He is looking forward to living with his own family. One can never remain indifferent when one sees how gently Ruslan treats every new stranger, especially women. Let’s hope his new mama is reading this article!

If you are interested in adopting Ruslan, 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 Ruslan accordingly to the orphan list # 0055288.

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.
