Marina is such an active child, so her educators feel lost at times about where they can direct her wild stream of energy at!

Marina demands a lot of attention to herself. However, when she receives it she is ready to return a hundredfold to it: she talks in her own way, laughs a lot and is sincerely happy.

Marina is a child with special needs, so her language of communication differs from ours. You can always understand her by gestures, sounds and facial expressions.

This communicative girl has a lot of girlfriends in her class. She sometimes argues but mostly about new toys in the playroom. Marinna pours out her endless energy at the playground. The girl has tried all sorts of merry-go-rounds and slides.

If you are interested in adopting Marina, 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 and to tell them the number of Marina's profile accordingly to the orphan list # 0058689.

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.
