This boy was born in 2001. These photos were taken in February 2012. He is located in a country in Eastern Europe which allows older parents and larger families to adopt. Couples must be married to adopt this child. An parent who adopted a child in his orphanage spent 2 months there and she is advocating for the boy and is available to speak to potential adoptive parents. “He is a kind, quiet boy who seems to have a sweet nature about him. He has a limp arm of some sort. There is a good chance he is HIV positive. His best friend is being adopted and he will be lonely at the orphanage.”
He often ran up to the door,
he heard steps … – he is waiting.
The boy firmly believes –
Once MAMA looking for, then find.
In bed, eyes closing,
to dispel any worries of the day,
as he repeats the prayer:
-Mamulechka, find me …
in the pockets of hidden candy,
flowers for mom collected.
But left unanswered
prayer children in the night.
And yet, with hope and stubborn,
quietly sitting on the window,
The boy draws the word MAMA
He is in RU and cannot be adopted by Americans at this time. When you look at him, once you see how he is growing into a handsome and tall man. The children in children’s homes grow up too fast – they have no children’s problems… but he is still very young, only 6 years! And he is clever, detailed, beautiful eyes, and just a nice kid with which you can not remain indifferent. He’s intelligent, fairly well developed (no mental delays) and smart. He really needs a mom. His biological mother was deprived of parental rights and the biological father is unknown. He has been in the system for a long time, from infancy. He has an older sister, born in 2004 who is currently residing with an aunt (who refused the boy). He has status for international adoption.
Many additional photos available.
