Kirill is always happy to meet new people, and immediately wins people over with his sincere smile. This little boy is very good-natured to everyone who comes to visit him and pays attention to him, he gives the gift of his affection, and responds to kindness with kindness. At this time, that is the only way Kirill can express his emotions.

Kirill is a special-needs child. He is very friendly and is ready to "talk" by making sounds to anybody about anything. He especially likes playing with other children on the mat. The teachers remark that this boy is very calm and non-confrontational, although at times, if he's not in the mood, he can start scattering toys around. Thankfully, such occasions are rare, and the majority of the time, Kirill is very friendly.

He needs a special approach, but the teachers say that he is promising, for example, his grasp reflex is getting much stronger recently.

If you are interested in adopting Kiril, 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 Kiril’s Profile Number 0058657.
