Marko was born in November 2010.
OUR EASTERN EUROPE REPRESENTATIVE VISITED THE 3 BROTHERS IN FEBRUARY 2018 AND WROTE:
they are more than sure that they want to have their own family and be adopted! On my question if they want to be adopted, the three of them unanimous said “yes”! They are aware that their biological family will never take them back and also they do know that the foster parents take care for them temporarily. Something else that made me impression is when I asked them individually: What would you like to be when you get older? Ilia first answered: When I get older I want to be a good person and later his younger brothers repeated his answer too. They shared that they like animals and are not scared of them at all. Their favorite animal is dog!
Like every orphan, these three boys need their own family. I am sure that they have to make up for many things but I am sure that with adequate parental care and encouragement they will achieve a lot. These boys really need love, more resources for development and better social environment. If a family shows up for these boys, they need to be prepared that they will need time to earn the boys’ trust and that they will need to be open with them. I was told that they speak a lot, have normal relationships with their friends and are not so closed with known people. They are just more nervous and embarrassed among strangers. They are great children who deserve a chance for love and security that only a real family can give!
