The child found a family: Yuriy Ch., Born in 2002

August 18, 2012, 12:00 4065 Author: Maria Semashkina, translated by Maria Romanko www.deti.zp.ua Yuriy gained loving parents!

Yuriy or simply Yura is happy to meet new people. He is a tender and loving boy and every time an adult comes for a visit Yuriy shows care and likes to hold hands probably in a hope that here is his parent, his loving mom.

Every person – be it a child or an adult – wants to get attention and recognition. Yura is not an exception: he speaks loudly so that adults couldn’t ignore him. He is persistent too. Once the goal is set, he tries to achieve it. He likes to interact with others and join the children in their activities: playing outside, drawing – if it’s what the other children do, or swinging even if there is already somebody on the swings.

However he can also play calmly on his own. He doesn’t like to draw or to paint for a long time but he tries to make the best piece of art he can. And of course if there is a chance to play in sand or to throw pebbles into seawater – this is the biggest fun for the energetic boy!

Yura also likes to watch children’s movies and sing songs. And even if his singing is not perfect and sometimes you cannot make out some words, with his loud cheerful voice and a lively smile Yura brings joy and genuineness into this world.

This loud little guy really needs warmth and care of a family circle. And he will certainly respond to your attention and love if you make one step forward and decide to become the family for him.

Yuriy has a sister born in 1999.

If you are interested in adopting, 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.

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.
