A Child Needs a Family: Viktor S, born in 2003

July 20, 2016, 17:55 3347 Author: Nikolay Kolodyazhny, translated by Andrei Vernon www.deti.zp.ua Victor has come of age.

Viktor is 14 years old and studies in the fifth grade. His favorite classes are physical education, information technology and mathematics. While he loves the computer as well as more active forms of entertainment. He likes to play soccer and hide and seek with his buddies. Even though he knows how to have fun, he does not forget about his household chores.

When asked what he wants to become once he grows up he quickly responded “driver.” Viktor loves cars.

The young boy dreams about traveling, especially to the United States. He has watched many films about America and thinks it would be interesting. He is especially fond of the impressive scale and grandeur of many buildings, most notably the White House.

Viktor feels that he is pretty grown up, independent and able to take care of himself. He can defend himself and the younger boys. “Vitya” is a good guy. He believes in the saying, “One for all and all for one!”

Despite his independent spirit Viktor dreams of having a family. “Each person needs a family so that they do not feel alone,” Viktor explained to us in a serious manner. He added that despite the fact that he has lots of friends in the orphanage, he still feels lonely.

The main qualities Viktor’s future parents should have are kindness and attentiveness towards children.

If you have been thinking about adopting this child or other children, please, read the memo to potential adoptive parents, guardians, and foster parents; or you can also contact Children’s Affairs' service of the Zaporozhye State Administration by telephones (061) 239-02-51 or (061) 239-01-56 and make sure to provide them with Viktor’s file number – 0212158.

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.
