Artyom is HEALTHY, with a smile that can light up a room. He is an orphanage favorite, and is described as very friendly, affectionate, active, and happy. He has very little time left before being sent to the institution, so someone PLEASE SAVE HIM.
From one of our adoptive families who visited with him in August 2009: "I saw Artyom today, he is such a doll!! He is chunky and walks perfect. We were waiting in the hallway and he came out of the baby room like a little man... walked up to each one of us as if he was saying hello. He pointed at a few pictures they had hanging on the wall, then the nurses noticed he was out of the room and started telling him to come back in the room to the group. He looked at them and shook his hand as if to say "leave me alone!" and we all started laughing. He has got to be adopted! He would bring such joy to any family and looks extremely healthy and very smart."
Please give Artyom the chance to have a family of his own!
