A Child Has a Family: Elvira, born in 2016

September 5, 2016, 22:00 3739 Author: Julia Doikova; The operator and editor: Zhirov Ruslan, translated by Andrei Vernon www.deti.zp.ua Elvira was adopted!

Elvira has two siblings – a brother Danil (born 2005) and a sister Diana (born 2008).

“Elya” is a little introvert, who loves to draw and look at children’s books. She can easily flip through a book, find a picture of a kitten or puppy and imitate the sounds they make.

Elvira is able to eat from a spoon. Her greatest joy is to play alone. She is serious – she rarely smiles and is neither a very active nor mobile child. She prefers to play alone or interact with some adults, but not all. She is not very communicative because she is shy and we hope that she will grow out of this. Her caretakers say that she is a responsive child – she understands and pays attention to what she is told. For example, she shows how to collect and put away her toys.

If you are interested in adopting Ivan, 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.
