A Child needs a family: Dmitriy B., born in 2000

August 11, 2015, 17:00 4722 Author: Oleg and Ksenia, translated by Iryna Koval www.deti.zp.ua Dima is 18 years old now

Usually boys-teenagers want to look older and show their independence, rebelling against everything and everyone. Meeting a 14-years old boy, who still wants to be a child is not an often affair. Dima is an ordinary guy, a little bit shy and open at the same time. But, unfortunately, the majority of children, who live in an orphanage have got an experience of non-children's worries behind them. When we asked Dima for what reason he would go back to the past, his face changed and we could see sadness in his eyes. At such moments the heart aches and you want this boy to find a family and get an opportunity to live his happy childhood together with caring parents.

In his free time Dima likes to read books about Sherlock Holmes and to kick the ball with boys in the street. In the process of communication we found out that cooking of a usual borsch can make the teenager very happy. For Dima cooking is a hobby that can become a profession.

Like many other children of his age Dima dreams of bright and serene future. He defined his profession already - he wants to be a master chef. Also Dima dreams of the thing, that many children even don't think about. The most cherished and important dream of the boy is to find a family.

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.
