12 year-old Eugene wished to have a family too
The donations received by our project here on Global Giving have become the chance for 187 kids to find parents. And more and more kids have become loving sons and daughters. Among them are Viktoria, Pavel and Karina. The ages of these kids are “unpopular” if it’s possible to say, as the majority of Russian adopters search for newborn or a bit older kids. But Viktoria is 8, Pavel – is 6, and Karina – is 13 year old. And we are happy when these children find their way home, because they need love not less than others.
It’s one of the problems for Russian adoption, that there are even queues of registered future parents, who prepared all the documents and waiting when they would find small, cute and healthy child without brothers and sisters. Several months, or even years may pass until they would find such a child. But at the same time there are thousands of kids still waiting for parents. Real kids. In different health conditions, with brothers and sisters, and lot of them are teenagers. So videos let parents look not on the papers with child characteristics, like in a shop, but to see the real person. So it happened with was with Eugene – kid from our project “Life changing movies”. His new mother Margarita saw him in a short film and understood that he can be her son.
This is just the part of her long story:
“Boy, 12 years-old. It attracted me how the boy is thinking, his drawing is so interesting. I went to the Tver region: “I’m the victim of cinema art, please give me the permission to meet with this boy. The social service specialist told me there were 3 parents who met up with boy but then disappeared. Kid was in hysterics what was wrong with him. So it was clear that if I go to 12 year boy, I have no right to disappear without any explanation. After the firs talk about him in his school it appeared that he was the best student.”
Thank you for taking part in the lives of kids like Eugene! Teen also dream about family and videos help his future parent to see him as he is, and to imagine him in their family.
