January 27, 2014, 8:30 6651 Author: Tatiana Slabisheva, translated by Oksana Nikolenko www.deti.zp.ua Egor is 18 years old now

We have only pleasant memories after the talk with this boy. He has changed a bit (not only his appearance but also his behavior, his views on life).

His hobbies are very diverse. Like all boys, he likes to play football (he takes an active part in the competition between schools, and generally plays as a goalkeeper), also he enjoys playing basketball, in computer games he prefers the strategy and tactics, and, of course, the race such as “Need For Speed”. He is fond of watching movies, and does it in his spare time. The boy prefers films about real men, whose example you can follow, because, according to him, he still has a lot things to learn about.

Egor remained the same restless, cheerful boy, but he also surprised a lot the employees of our foundation by his new interests. His free time the boy often spends in the library. Among school subjects he prefers geography and nature-study, but his favorite science is physics. Egor is seriously engaged in floristics, and has fun of creating interesting scenery from all kinds of materials. Also, he likes to pack gifts and create a festive gift boxes, and makes it to anyone who asks him about it.

The boy dreams of becoming a chef, as he is keen on cooking, although, the best of his dishes now are meat dumplings.

Egor said that he constantly helps educators. Of course, at first we did not take his words seriously. But the boarding employees themselves described the boy as a kind and sympathetic child who is always ready to help seniors and indeed anyone who asks for help.

Egor appreciates the most such human qualities as simplicity, optimism, kindness, patience, the ability to listen and understand. He believes that the true woman should be economic and caring, and a real man is brave, strong, the "pillar" of the family, but at the same time, is the person who is able to understand and help, is able to show tenderness in the right time.

This boy, like all his peers, dreams of a mobile phone and a laptop, but the most important and the most significant thing of all his desires is to have a family...

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.
