Little Vanya (Ivan) cannot help touching your soul. This cute boy is always all smiles and it seems like he doesn’t need a lot to be happy. He is exultant to go to the children’s playground, to watch TV or to draw.

Despite Vanya’s speech problems he always exactly shows where he wants to go and what he wants to do. If he likes something very much he jumps for joy and expresses his feeling with emotional gestures.

Vanya is very sociable with adults and children. He also enjoys swinging alone. Little Vanya is also keen on soccer he happily plays with his friends. It seems like this sport attracts all the boys around the world!

Vanya loves to colour the pictures, put together puzzles and play with bricks.

You can hardly ever find such a cheerful boy! He is even radiating with joy if he sees a pear. The reason is children in the Child’s Home rarely get any other fruits but oranges in summer.

Children like Vanya are very promising. They only need loving parents who would love and care about them. Perhaps Vanya is Your child you look forward to welcoming into your family? Little Vanya can’t wait to see his mama he’ll present a sea of smiles and love!

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.
