Vladimir has his parents now!

Vladimir’s got regular features, big black eyes and fluffy eyelashes, he looks at you attentively and seriously. Vladimir can seat in the corner silently for a long time, without drawing any curiosity to himself. His capabilities and predilections are different from the interests of an ordinary ten-year-old boy.

Vladimir doesn’t like noise and mostly likes to play alone. The boy chooses unusual toys: mainly he likes those, which are spinning and emitting queer sounds. He can listen to ringing, rustling music for hours. The boy can ignore bright objects, but he is careful to the delicate, uncommon part of life.

To stay alone in the orphanage – is a very complicated task. Therefore when Vladimir is tired from communication, he just tries to move aside, and if his friends do not understand his wish to take a rest from them – he cries. Vladimir is a sensitive kid.

The boy studies not very well, but I consider, that this is not due to weak abilities, but to the fact that teachers in the orphanage do not complicate their life by searching for an approach to such an atypical child. This kid needs a family not less than other children. But he is destined for strong, self-confident people, who won’t count on the fast result, that the child would become attached to the new parents at once and unconditionally. He is for those, who are ready to solve complicated issues, who can give, not waiting for gratitude and reciprocal generosity. Perhaps, all that would appear. But not at once, by no means at once.

If you are interested in adopting Vladimir, 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 Vladimir accordingly to the orphan list # 0060672.
