My name is Dorin. I live at the Children's shelter. My parents are divorced. My father is ill and can’t take care of me. I used to live with my mother, but she is unemployed and doesn’t have a stable place to live. So she decided to bring me to the shelter. Since then, she hasn’t come to visit me, which makes me sad. Although I’ve experienced difficulties in the past, I am a sociable boy and I’m always ready to help those in need. I enjoy playing and dancing. In September, I started going to school and I’m now in 1st grade. One of the girls living at the shelter is also my classmate. I feel like a real gentleman when I am helping her with her school bags. When I grow up, I want to continue helping people and I think I would do my best if I become a firefighter. Now I am trying to focus on learning so that I can reach my dream. I know that in order to get there, I will need help and support from those around me. My hope is to meet people who will support and encourage me.
