6th graders Ilya and Nina are a brother and a sister. They are always smiling. Ilya and Nina can’t spend much time together because of their classes and coteries, though they have their own tradition to watch “Tom and Jerry”. “Ilya used to like to pick on me. We were about to watch a cartoon, but he switched off a TV”, - said she. Nevertheless, now they adore watching this cartoon together.

Ilya is a smiley boy who loves to paint portraits and landscapes. He’s not sure enough in his future profession, but he wants it to be connected with paintings. His favourite hero is Harry Potter, because the boy loves the way Harry overcomes the obstacles. Ilya would like to go to Disneyland. He once saw a picture of it in the local newspaper, and since that moment he has wanted to visit this place.

Nina is very kind and easygoing. She’s a creative child who likes Ukrainian language, paintings, singing and embroideries. The girl wants to help animals in the future and to work at a veterinary clinic. It is not surprising that she also wants to have a German shepherd. Nina also would like to go to Paris.

But the most important dream of brother and sister is the same: they want a lot to have a family and they do believe that once it will happen!

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 and make sure to provide them with Ilya and Nina №0056453 number 0056455.
