A Child Needs a Family: Vladislav Sh., born in 2003

December 9, 2013, 14:30 4114 Author: Maria Semashkina, translated by Anna Oliynyk www.deti.zp.ua Vladislav likes laughing and knocking on anything he can find. Now he has to knock his future mother’s heart. Profile # 0060575

Less than a year ago Vladislav got his chance to get out his bed where he used to spend all his free time. More than that, he coped with the task set for him rather well and fast. When he was taught to walk, he made efforts himself, too. One night he got out his bed, went or maybe crawled to the door of the nannies’ room and tapped on the door. Sure, the ladies must have been frightened, and after this case our mutual friends promised to teach him to ask nannies for the keys to the play room. So, you see that Vladislav is a smart and an active boy.

There’s no limit to the curiosity of a child, so when in the play room the boy always taps, touches and sometimes even tastes his toys.

I can say that Vladislav is one of my favorites. His catching laugher and endless energy always make me smile. Even when Vladislav is full of emotions and pulls my hair, I know he is not doing it with any evil intentions.

This little boy is just one of those children who lack care and attention, so by right or wrong he tries to attract everyone’s attention and then keep it.

Of course, when he’s got some toys he likes, Vladislav does not really need anyone – he enjoys playing with anything that can ring, sing or make other noises. All the time he needs to hear and touch something – something that gives him feedback.

The boy can hold an adult’s hand for a long time, simultaneously playing with his toy, but as soon as you try to take your hand back – he is sure to resent. Even if he can’t say a word, he is definitely able to be loud.

Vladislav is a very lively child and you won’t have a dull moment with him. It is worth being next to this boy just to see his emotions.

If you are interested in adopting Vladislav, 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 quoting Vladislav’s Profile Number 0060575.
