The American family adopts a child with special needs from the Kalinovka Orphanage.

“Last January for the first time in history of the state-run facility for children with severe forms of disability, in the village of Kalinovka, Chernigovskiy district, Zaporizhzhya region, one of its little orphans was finally adopted. Six-year old Sasha is now a family member of an American pastor from South Carolina , USA”, - informed ReporterUA, the director of the “Happy Child” charity foundation, Albert Pavlov.
The Kalinovka Orphanage currently has 120 orphans aged from 4 to 35 years diagnosed with different mental and physical disabilities. A great number of the orphans are wheelchair users. 
“Just a month ago Sasha was almost dead but now he is crawling about and playing in his loving family”, - Shane Robertson, who lives in Myrtle Beach, happily comments on his Facebook page.
