A Child Needs a Family: Anna O., born in 2011

December 4, 2014, 16:30 5500 Author: Sonia Koshkina, translated by Anya Gvozdyeva www.deti.zp.ua Anna is a smiling girl even though she used to be unsociable and did not like to be bothered. Profile # 0208875

Specialists are working with Anna at the orphanage, and the results are visible. Anna now reacts to communication and she got a favourite toy. The girl tries to eat with a spoon by herself, despite the fact that it takes a lot of effort. Due to her diagnosis, Anna cannot walk or sit, but the girl tries to actively turn in the cot. Anna is a special needs child and she needs to get regular attention from special needs professionals.

Anna’s key requirement is all-around development. Every single day matters, otherwise it can reverse any progress to date. Who could help her with that if not caring parents?

If you are interested in adopting Anna, 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 Anna's profile accordingly to the orphan list # 0208875.

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.
