February 25, 2014, 12:00 3947 Author: Ekaterina Pavelko, translated by Oksana Nikolenko www.deti.zp.ua Dmitry is 18 years old now

Dmitry is a small adult. He already knows what he wants from life. He is ambitious to join harsh and purely male occupation of soldier of Special Forces in the future. Dmitry leads a healthy lifestyle, and is engaged in hand-to-hand fighting and sport, because he is sure - the man must be able to stand up for himself and for his dear ones.

Dmitry appreciates communication. He loves to make new friends and be faithful to them. He is always ready to help others. The honor of team for him isn’t a mere name, so the boy is always happy to play for his class in various competitions. The guy is not only developing socially and physically, but creatively too – he learns to draw and create something with his own hands. Dmitry is not afraid of working and he has already learned a lot in his short but not childish complex life. Those who know him say that the boy is already thinking about his own family, in which he will surely be a strong man.

However, today this small adult is still a child, who has a vital need to get wholehearted parental care. Dmitry needs a loving happy family to believe in himself and become a strong and reliable man.
