Fyodor is only five months old and is looking for a family! According to his caretakers he is developing well for a child his age – he is calm and loves to hold things with his hands. Fyodor eats well, likes to move around and likes to listen to music. He sleeps well at night with no problems. He likes when you hold his hand, give him a massage or allow him to play on the carpet. He loves to be touched – he loves tugging on the hands of those he meets and smiles. Like most infants his age he likes to go on walks and enjoys the fresh air.

Fyodor did not cry even once during our visit. He was calm the entire time and enjoyed looking at the aquarium in the sensor room. He also enjoyed being held by the caretakers and playing on the rug.

We hope that Fyodor is able to find a loving family!
