Elena from Novosibirsk, in addition to the adult blood son Alexander, has five foster daughters. Each child is with her own exceedingly difficult fate.
Elena writes "Orphanages (at least those that I saw) can be described as neat, clean. The staff are helpful, they took care of the children. But will the most comfortable orphanage be able to replace the family? The place of the child next to the mother. "
'Did I have a fear that I could not cope then? There was no fear. It only took me one minute to decide. I am not afraid to take fosters children. I'm not an educator, I'm just a mom."
"Family is a fulcrum. The house is a place where they are waiting for you, where they are glad to you. My daughters have this place."
In mid-September 2022, the counter on the website of our fund crossed a new mark. The 23,000 children whose video profiles we have created are already at home!
23,000 boys and girls who found their parents. The is equal to the population of the one city! The happiest city ever. Which was not there if it was not for you.
Thanks to everyone who is with us! Thanks to all of you who made it possible.
