At first glance, it's a typical, large Ukrainian family, but when you hear their story - you realize it is not so. That's what Irina, one of the mothers, told us:
"We had a quite normal family with my husband and our daughter Karina. Once she got sick and we were forced to undergo treatment at the hospital, where we met two little girls who were abandoned by their mother immediately after birth. Karina and I had been visiting them to play. Then I, as a mother, began to take care for them, I asked my husband to bring the baby food, diapers. And when the last day at hospital arrives, I suddenly felt that I left there (in the hospital), somebody important for my heart... Therefore, reconciling with my husband, we to pick up those girls and we began the process of adoption. So that's how our journey has started with an open heart to disadvantaged children. Our children's home opened its door on the eve of St. Nicholas Day - December 18, 2012. My husband and daughter Karina expressed a desire to create an environment for orphans, in whom they could grow, learn and develop, and in the future to be worthy members of society. The main goal of our family is to help disadvantaged children: children who are deprived of parental care, orphans, neglected and street children who have become victims of their own families, the indifference of others and society. The aim is to give the child a warm and kind family surrounded by parental love, and, of course, provide all necessary for a full and comprehensive development. These children, despite their age, have already suffered enough violence, they lacked the basic conditions for the full development and education, were often compelled to look for clothes and food, shelter. They do not know what are a family comfort, a cozy home and who are the parents. And of course, for a child, for his or her development and education a family is a center of harmony, understanding and love. Therefore, we, Fysochenko family, strive to give our children everything: good treat, a decent summer holiday, healthy food and decent clothes for school - so they feel like all those who have their own families.
Today we are raising 8 orphans and children deprived of parental care. The youngest among them is Dima (5 years), he has an elder sister Olga (14 years old), they came to our family on the eve of new year holidays in 2015 - perhaps this is St. Nicholas in the usual tradition takes the most cherished dreams of children and gave them the family that they have waited so long. The eldest of the children is Anastasia, she is 19 years old and she has already finished school and now she is studying to be a seamstress. Nastia has a sister Yanina (15) and brother Kyryl (14 years). Our large family supplement Pasha (16 years) and his sister Anastasia (13 years), they are very friendly, always care about each other. And then there are Danylko (age 9) and Karina (11 years) our native daughter, who with generosity and sincere, open heart is sharing our love and care for the children who require love, attention, support and protection.
It is impossible to forget those children who have got in our family for a time while their biological parents were undergoing rehabilitation to restore parental rights. Because our mission is to support not only disadvantaged children but their parents, who lost hope in life. We encourage them showing that life can be different, happy and beautiful. Sisters Alina and Carolina Vitkov, Kolchenko`s Roman, Alina and Ilona, Misha Abramichev were in charge of our family. And for this moment they all are with their natural parents.
Consequently, for these four years of our fruitful work, we raised and passed from hand to hand of 6 children and today we bring up 9 children. In total they are 14 kids! Incredible! But love has no boundaries!
