Look at this smile. Look at those eyes. Don't you just want to scoop him up and love him?? I always feel especially bad for the 'older' orphans, and this sweet boy is 8 yrs old and cognitively on track and REALLY needs a family and medical treatment for his brain tumor. He REALLY needs to be here in the USA for that treatment. Oh, how I pray he finds that family and SOON. Will you pray for Sasha too? Is your heart telling you he's your son?
Character: active, sociable From a missionary who visited with him: “This is Alexander, and they call him Sasha. His birthday is April 2002. I would say his personality seemed happy, cheerful and sociable from the little contact I had with him. I did send an email to my friends that worked with his group to get their opinion since they spent several hours with him for a week. I know he has a brain tumor that is supposedly treatable U.S, but the treatment is expected to be lengthy. He has been treated some in Russia and was in the hospital in the spring for more treatment. He’s a very lovable kid and very smart. He remembers people and things that they say and he is very in tune with how sick he is. He understands and comprehends a lot for his age. He loves to dance and get one on one attention (what kid doesn’t?) He’s sensitive and his feelings get hurt easily. Sasha is concerned about others. He always asks how you or someone in the group is doing. He is very outgoing, not shy at all. He loves to sing songs and recite poems for you, and he knows so many! Sasha loves individual attention. You are special to him and he wants to feel that he is special to you also. Simply put, he is a loving little boy who is such a pleasure to spend time with. One more thing: I have lots of pictures of Sasha and some videos of him singing and reciting poems. It would be SO WONDERFUL if he could get adopted and get proper treatment in the USA.
