Orphan needs a family: Kolya S.

December 8, 2009, 10:00 6908 Author: Katya Pavelko, translated from Russian by Maryna Psel www.deti.zp.ua Kolya is 18 years old now

Kolya is 8. He hasn’t his favorite book yet because he still cannot read. From all studying time he definitely likes breaks most of all. Playing soccer or watching the favorite cartoon of all times and nations “Well, just you wait!” Kolka is always first. He is active and just tireless, he can run around all day, play, dream, make up stories with toys. Kolya, who dreams to be a train driver in the future, talks to me with smile on his face and playful sparkle and slyness in the eyes. He tells me that he likes the boarding school #3, that he has many friends, that yellow plastic fish in his hands is a really dangerous shark which he has caught in class not to let it bite his classmates. Kolya seems caustic and slightly distrustful at first but he thaws out as soon as you start talking to him kindly. And who knows whom Kolya could become when he find himself surrounded by people giving him life-long love and sincere affection…

As Kolya told us he has two older sisters, Nadya and Anya. Unfortunately, we were unable to check this information and find his sisters.
