A Child Needs a Family: Innokentiy L., born in 2004

September 17, 2014, 11:10 5155 Author: Ekaterina Nedashkovskaya, translated by Daria Sukach Innokentiy has come of age

“Kesha (Innokentiy) is a good boy”, - educators say to him. Well, his name is often given to parrots but he is a boy who came to the orphanage two years ago. He was first not able to do anything. Now he has achieved some accomplishments: he can partially look after himself and eat independently.

Unfortunately, this boy cannot speak but the educators consider him quite clever. He can explain his needs with the help of sounds. Spending some time with Kesha will teach you to understand him easily. He is a lively child who loves laughing.

Kesha shows interest in different objects around him. Balls are his favourite toys. He can play with them nonstop. He prefers to play alone, though. Despite his reserved nature, Kesha is popular among children.

If only Kesha had mom and dad who would give him their love, he would really become a happy child.

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.
