Meet 8-year-old Miroslav. His illness, cerebral palsy, has caused several challenges. He uses a walker with difficulty. Miroslav’s verbal ability is also limited because of cognitive impairments. This is just the beginning of his story. His journey has been inspiring.
Miroslav was adopted from a Ukrainian orphanage; he did not have the freedoms which we enjoy in America. Two years ago, a loving and generous couple from the United States adopted the disabled child. He now has 3 siblings, including an adopted sister who is also disabled. Miroslav is getting accustomed to his new life. He is learning how to make his own choices, a freedom he never had in the Ukraine. Miroslav discovered the simple joy of being a child. He loves building; His favorite toy is a set of Lego’s which he uses to build rockets. Mom thinks someday he will be an engineer. He also has a Godfather who plays guitar in a band. Miroslav has fun copying by strumming the air guitar. Family is important to the once orphaned boy. Miroslav was given the best welcome to America. He was given a home.
Miroslav is requesting an adaptive tricycle to improve his strength and stamina. The trike will also give him opportunities to ride outdoors with his family. Please be a generous sponsor to Miroslav!
