Anna and Sergei decided on adoption?
I went to this decade. But my parents asked: while unable to give birth herself – to give birth, so I did. But when I realized that the more health does not allow to carry kids, she decided to take the child from the orphanage. Waited until the youngest daughter Ilaria will turn 3 years old, and began to study the sites with profiles of orphans. March 8 I saw Tanya on the page of the charity Fund “Change one life” and I knew it was our baby. It is one to one similar to Cook and Ilaria!—
You are not scared that Tanya is special, with physical disabilities?
The stroller I noticed after fell in love with her. And then called the Foundation and learned that the girl – deep disabled, she has a rare condition – caudal regression syndrome. But nothing that I haven’t already heard, I only thought about what Tanya must be a member of our family.
Remember the moment you first saw Tanya?
I went to her from St. Petersburg to Moscow boarding school for children with disabilities just a few days after I found photos on the Internet. Tanya was much smaller than I imagined. Ten years old child, and weighs 13 kg! At first she was very timid, but then got used, I began to braid my braid and sat on the handle. I promised Tanya that I would take her. Returning to St. Petersburg, talked about their spouse feelings. Serge, to be honest, very worried about it – we do it ourselves? But I have no doubt that I’m doing everything right. Know how to prepare something new my husband for dinner and make sure he will be delighted with the result. Perhaps the comparison is not entirely appropriate, but the feeling is the same…Then I collected the documents, Tanya called up. And a month later I returned to pick her up. As soon as we pulled away from the boarding school, Tanya began to call me mom. In the “Peregrine” was carefully put in the bag everything that was usually handed out for free, saying: “Dad, dad.” Collected the gift. Husband first saw the daughter of Peter, on the platform, when they met us from the train. Sergei took her in his arms, she immediately called him dad… It was love at first sight!
Daughter quickly settled on a new place?
Yes, we have prepared for her a separate room. Our friends bought her a lot of clothes. Jeanne karpinska, owner of chain stores “Kangaroo”, brought to the station all the essential, what really helped us, and a huge thank you to her! All of this we will wear for a long time, because Tanya is growing very slowly.
What was the reaction of children to the appearance in the family of another child?
I prepared them to the fact that we’ll take the girl from the orphanage – read special literature about adoption, the films were shown. When they saw the questionnaire Thani, excitedly saying, “Mom, we have to take her to yourself!” The kids got along great – playing football together: Tanya wears shoes on his hands, moves along the ground on his hands… But no one is ashamed of it. SEMA, for example, likes to walk with her in the yard without worrying that the neighbor’s boys are going to point a finger at him and call a babysitter. The first time the son does sleeping with Tanya in the same room – in case the baby wakes up in the night and scared. Despite the fact that her daughter cannot walk, she my main squeeze. Tanya is very good, even in the orphanage trying to teach Junior how to dress, eat… When he sees that the kids can’t pull on her pants, sighs: “And we have even armless yourself dressed…” She puts Ilaria to sleep, reads her books, clean my room and bake dad some cookies. All kids are different, and so sometimes I have a hard time with them – for this we have a babysitter. Every night I make Tanya a foot massage. In the orphanage warned me that I would have become a nurse to care for a child and it appears to be working. Tanya began to discover the world anew. She never tried strawberries, cherries. Wanted to ride a pony to get her ears pierced and we fulfilled her wishes. The girl never bathed in the bathroom, and the first time I bathed her three times a day for two hours. Time passed, and bath became her not so interesting…
What do the doctors say about the health of girls?
They believe her case is hopeless. But we are not going to give up. In the fall we will go to Germany, where Tanya will have a number of complex operations. Believe that will cure your back and will seriously involve in sport – Tanya very feisty girl, she can do it!
