A Child Needs a Family: Victoria Sh., born in 1999

September 12, 2013, 17:20 5091 Author: Victoria Mochalova, translated by Oxana Burns and Daria Sukach www.deti.zp.ua Victoriya is 18 years old now

Just think, this girl is fourteen years old, and she is only a four-year student at school. It’s not very easy for her to comprehend the simplified school program. However, school science does not make a person happy or even adapted to everyday life.

Victoria’s interests fully coincide with those of her younger friends-classmates: nice clothes, hairstyle, playing with the ball, copying the cartoon characters.

Victoria really wanted to help us organize the guys that we could do our work without being disturbed, but she did it very awkwardly: it seems the only way she knows how to deal with others is using strength and rude shouts. The girl has some work skills, she is diligent and friendly, but she has no idea how to use it all in the independent living. I believe such questions never come to her mind as long as she lives fully procured by others in the orphanage. And there is no way anybody will teach her this simple everyday wisdom as long as she does not have mom and dad.

Victoria doesn’t quite understand yet why she needs a family, and it’s no wonder since it is the result of the orphanage upbringing system. However, we are urgently announcing: we are looking for someone who will take responsibility for this girl - one of many helpless grown up children, who will introduce her to a warm family atmosphere.

If you are interested in adopting Victoria or other children, 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 Victoria accordingly to the orphan list # 0057559.

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.
