Ekaterina's daughter
Ekaterina's daughter

We are happy to share with you the words, we've received from Ekaterina. 

Ekaterina found her daughter thanks to video profile sponsored by donations to this project on GlobalGiving. These is the message we've received:

I want to thank all those who is partial to orphan children, who helps to make video profiles. You're doing the greate cause. This small video gives us, future parents, answers to many questions, helps to understand our resources and the potential of the child in the matter of health. And later on, when the child is in the family, this video is kept as the little history of a person, as the beginning of a new life in a family. Thank you very much! 

Girl was one of 1135 children who have received video profiles thank to donations on GlobalGiving, and one of 276 who have found family already.

We are so grateful for you for giving hope to children to have real family. You're connecting children with parents, change lives all of them!

Irina, foster mother of 5 children, is sure only videoprofile gives the full image of a child. As she says video helps potential parents to know better and to feel their future children. 

"The videoprofile of Ilya catched me.- tells Irina. I felt that the child is "ours". There was a feeling that he is a home boy, he hadn't the orphanage print. When I came for him, the orphanage workers were surprised. Ilya was 12 years old, and it happens very rare, when such grown-up children are taken into family."

It's one of the happy stories when children get to family even if there was so little hope for it. 

Thank you for support of our project! It gives hope for many children and parents to find each other.

We're happy to inform that in 2021 thanks to your help 75 chldren have received videoprofiles, and 58 boys and girls have found families.

For the all time of the project you gave 1092 children the chance to be seen by new parents, and 268 of them are in families already. 

Thank you for the best gift, it's the gift of the future!

Vitalina before and after she came to a family
Vitalina before and after she came to a family

Do you know what is the most difficult for us? To come to the orphanage to those children whom we've made videoprofiles already. And to see that in spite of our tries, child still is in the orhpanage. To see, how he changes, how his eyes fade. It hurts. But we still hope and make another video, try to find for the most important words about him.

Vitalina had 3 videoprofiles. An there was a unhappy childhood between them. 

"I opened website of Change One Life Foundation and saw videoprofiles of Vitalina. The first one was amazing, but the third one was completely different. Vitalina was very nervous. But I could see that girl still hopes to be loved, she needs a family. This helped me to become her mom" - said Daria, foster mother.

Now Vitalina has mother, brother, grannies, home where she is the loved. Daria helped daughter to find elder sisters and to establish the relationships with them. And some diagnosis also were cancelled. And all this could not happened, it's hard to belive it. 

"I can say it for sure that videoprofiles increase chances of a child for a family in several times - tells Daria. Only photo and text cannot tell so much about the child as the videoprofile can. And recently I've asked to send me all three videoprofiles of Vitalina - to keep this memories. Daughter has no photos from her life before she came to us, so video archive from Change One Life Foundation is the family album of Vitalina.

Thank you for helping orphan children and giving them the chance to be adopted or to obtain forster parents!|

Every your donation turns into the film changing child's  life.

Our project on GlobalGiving gave 1077 children hope for a family and 256 of them live with parents by now. 

Thank you!

Natasha - in the orphange and in the family
Natasha - in the orphange and in the family

"When I say Natasha's photo in a database, I was strucked by her sight. It was not only sad, but it was frightening, there was so much dispair in it. At that moment I just closed her page and I felt quite badly. I knew she was in Zabaikalsky region, and I wasn't sure I'm ready to go there for many thousands of kilometers. 

But soon I've seen the videoprofile of Natasha. And I recognized her as the girl from that photo. I've whatched video for several times and I understood that I have to take her to my family as soon as it's possible. I just couldn't close the website and do nothing. 

I'm so afraid of distant flights, but for me the stories from Change One Life website gave me much support. There were the stories of famlies who went to other parts of the country for the children. I thought that if they've done it, I can make it too." - remembers Tatyana.

Now Natasha is in her home. She's loved daughter, sister and grandaughter. Her forster parents were not frightened by diagnosis or by stories why this girl was not taken to other families. And this wouldn't happen if there was no videoprofile.

That's why our project on GlobalGiving is so important. It helped to create videoprofiles for 1066 children and 245 of them are in families already.

Thanks to your support there would be much more of such happy stories!

Timur is in the family now
Timur is in the family now

Each life of a child is precios and it's great when even one life is changed. 

We're so happy to share with you this story, how little Timur has found Mom and Dad

Life of Timur has started with two rejections. Biological mother and father hasn't accepted him as he was - with specific arms and legs. We've made a videoprofile for Timur and kept telling about him.

And mirracle happened! Tatiana and Andrey have seen Timur. And finally he spent his first New Year at home. His life wouldn't be full of closed specialized institutions any more - without hope and future. Now he's a son, brother and grandson. And also he looks like his father.

This story wouldn't happened if there were not you! Without you Timur would stay invisible - like others girls and boys in orphanages. Without you children and parents couldn't find each other. And we couldn't manage with all, specially in hard 2020. 

With your help in 2020 we've created videoprofiles for 147 children. Our project is on GlobalGiving made it possible to make videoprofiles for 893 children, and 211 boys and girls are in families now. 

Thank you for being close to us, to orphan children! Thank you for supporting and believing that children need better life in families.

We hope to change more lives of children with you this year. 

And all our achievements and victories are yours!
