In the modern world, many people don't have enough time to relax after their working day. A few people nowadays have permanent hobbies, especially several of them. There are more and more technical novelties available for boys of all ages, and the beauty industry is persistently developing new products for girls. And gradually, fewer and fewer people make the effort to consider what they can do during their spare time.

Oleg is a very easy child in that regard. If something interests him, he will spend hours on that activity. He won't even take a nap during nap time until he is finished playing, whether it is putting together a mosaic or winding up a musical toy. Whatever engages his attention that day is what he'll be focused on the entire day.

Recently, he started learning how to make seed bead crafts in the class with other boys. And even though he hasn't created any masterpieces himself thus far, nonetheless his perseverance and diligence guarantee his success in this difficult work.

Oleg likes to take walks outside, and, if there are no outside toys, he enjoys playing with sticks and blades of grass. He likes to study the nature around him the way he likes best - touching everything and breathing in the scents of plants.

And, last of all, Oleg likes being photographed. He prefers to be photographed in one position only, for some reason, but he tries to stand still and not to make faces for the photo, even if he was laughing and jumping about on the ground just before the photo was taken.

This boy has a beautiful smile; it costs him nothing but it will be of great value to those who will be able to give him their heart and time. A little bit of time as a gift to him, and the rest of the time Oleg will keep himself busy, and perhaps by the next March 8th (International Women's Day) he will already be able to make beautiful seed bead flowers for his new mom. Because he is capable of persisting in a labor of love for a long time.

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.
