Foster Family Project Updates

Dear friends,


We are grateful to you for your support of our work and your trust. We are sure that every child should have a family, loving and understanding people, and warm childhood memories.
We are happy to share our latest news which is great! Due to our work and your support and participation, five children obtained their new home, family and parents.
Here is one of the stories we would like to share with you.
Ivan is 17. Now he has a room of his own, a computer, and a dream to become a programmer. Until recently, he was living in a boarding school where children own nothing. The boy’s only wish was to find a loving family.
Ivan was with his mother only for the first three weeks of his life. Afterwards, the woman was deprived of her parental rights, and he baby was taken to the babies’ home. The boy had medical problems right from his birth, and unfortunately, he had to grow up in an orphanage.
Marina, a graduate of our School for Foster Parents found Ivan’s questionnaire at a specialized website for potential adopters. She contacted the institution, and Ivan began to visit the family as a guest, and several months later he officially obtained new parents and family. Marina and her husband had three children in their marriage, and they did not care about the age of a new child. Ivan was almost 17.
“At the initial meeting, Ivan was nervous a lot, and I was also worried about it”, said Marina. “But I told him “Do not be afraid, as I always do what I am afraid of”.
In the orphanage, Ivan had a diagnosis of mental disability. The boy finished ten years of an adjustment school. He was given an education certificate that only allowed for learning the simplest professions, including a cleaner and a dish washer.
Fostered by the new family, Ivan took the required medical tests and examinations. The status of “mental disability” was waived. This September, Ivan will go to the 7th form of a regular secondary school. Now he is working hard to improve his Mathematics and English skills. He is planning to complete nine years and enter a college to learn a profession related to programming.

Wholeheartedly, we are wishing happiness and wellbeing to Ivan and his wonderful family. And we are thankful to you for supporting our project!


In October, a new SFP training cycle will be launched. During the summertime, the project staff members were interviewing and counseling potential foster parents. We are sure that SFP graduates will bring happiness to children who lost parental support, and we will please you with new stories.
