Alexander, Veronika and their sons
"You can take the teenager to the family if you feel you love him. It's impossible to fool him. He knows how you feel about him"
These are the words of Veronika, foster parent.
Veronika and Alexander have two kids. The younger - there own born son. And the elder boy has become their son after they've seen his video profile on our website.
While Veronika was looking for a kid to take to their family she thought that the worst decision would be to have another boy and elder than their own born one.
So that was the son they;ve finally found.
Veronika remembers the first time she met her son in all the details:
"Just when he came in I saw his clever eyes and kind, calm look. And it striked me - It's my boy, ours. And though just a year passed since his video profile was shoot, he changed a lot. On video I saw 14years old plumb bear. But in the room I've seen strong guy, highter than my husband"
Veronika and Alexander at once decided to take boy in a "guest family". It was a very good chance to see how the family and kid can live together. Do they have similiar values, does the kid want to follow the rules of this family, do the parents have enough resources to take this kid.
So in 6 months this boy have become the real part of the family.
"Now our son is 16 (he lives for a year with us) - tells Veronika. He chose phisics and mathematics in school, and plan to study in the university.
Adopted child has two languages of attachment - touch and care - thinks foster mother. - My elder son is the best helper on the kitchen. If he's the best in helping. We're lucky, it's in his character."
So every night Veronika kisses and hugs the both of her sons. Her adopted son likes this, but own born son doesn't like it so much, he prefers to hear encouraging words.
