A Child Has a Family: Artem N., born in 2001

April 29, 2013, 12:00 6210 Author: Maria Semashkina, translated by Natalia Palanytsya www.deti.zp.ua Artem was adopted!

I cannot look at this singer and gentleman without a smile. I cannot listen to him without a constant smile either. Because, very rarely, unfortunately, I meet people with such a glib tongue who can make any adult become pensive. And to do it with such a childlike sincerity. But Artem can do this. Afterwards, you think if it was a joke or he really tried to get at you. But anyway, it is fun to be around him.

Artem likes to monkey around but at the same time he can be very attentive and gallant. And makes compliments which are very entertaining. For example, after I had my hair waved, he said I finally looked like a girl. And no matter what mess I have in my hair he still keeps complimenting me. And all the other women and girls around him. What a complimentary young man!

Artem loves to sing and dance. It does not embarrass him that he cannot walk properly without help because he can dance sitting on the couch. And it is possible for him to sing anywhere and at any time. If only someone would help to develop his abilities….

Together with other children Artem beads. He also likes to play computer games, visit the girls and old schoolmates from the previous year and then to go home, where in the evenings he is one of a few “adults” for whom the caregivers especially make tea and bring homemade treats.

Artem often asks if I love him. Sometimes, I answer that I need to think about it. But I know that I cannot help but love someone so cheerful and amusing. One day we will for sure sing something meaningful. One day and this day could come very soon, we will be able to play football with him. But it will be only temporary as he needs a family, now and forever. Think about it, the boy has problems with his legs but at the same time he is full of talents and aphorisms. You never get bored with him, so your family really needs him!

If you are interested in adopting Artem, 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.
