Meet Ilya. He was born in 2008.

His favorite school subjects are physical education, history and computer science. In his free time, the boy plays tennis and plays computer games.

He is a sincere child. He said about himself that he was generally cheerful by nature, but he could be pissed off. Illusha's eyes are a little filled with sadness, but sometimes a radiant smile still emerges, revealing all the boy's charm.


The boy already has an idea of what an ideal family is and about the roles of each of its members. According to him, it is very important that everyone in the family is free of bad habits.

Ilya likes to help the elders with the household chores at the boarding school and to be on duty in the canteen. Also, our hero has a good friend with whom he is interested to communicate.

Illusha dreams of returning to his grandmother. We are not sure if this is real. And we sincerely hope that there will be kind people who are ready to give this glorious child their care and love!
