This wonderful story happened a few years ago, and it still creeps up to this day.
In one of the settlements of the Pavlovsky district, two boys, Maxim and Dima, lived in a small house. They saw their parents very rarely, their father had left a long time ago, and the wayward mother appeared once a week and disappeared again in search of a new beau. She didn’t spoil them with food, she brought them a loaf of bread, that’s all. One day, a neighbor noticed that this mother had not been seen at home for a long time and called the police. A group came to the call, which included police ensign Sergei Sharaukhov.
Sergey remembers that his heart was squeezed by what he saw in the house. «It didn’t fit in my head that people can live like this in our time. A window was broken in the house, Maxim was hammering it with some rags, and then the muzzle. It was the month of March. There is a dirty bed on the beds, no pillows, no blankets. There is no food. » the man recalls. Sergei felt uneasy. The elder Maxim wrapped his brother in a mattress to warm him, it was very cold in the room. It’s a terrible sight. And then the thought flashed through the ensign’s head — «I’ll take them away», and already aloud he asked: «Well, boys, let’s go to my house?». But the guys were so scared that they only hid behind a woman from the guardianship service.
But suddenly, Maxim screams: «Dad, and how did I not recognize you at once!!!»
«I have goosebumps running down my hands, such pleasant ones and tears come here it is impossible to remain indifferent…,» Sergey says, worrying.
The children were immediately taken to the hospital for examination. But besides that, they still needed to be washed and fed. After all, for six whole days, the boys sat in a cold house and gnawed on one loaf.
Sergey called his wife and began to tell her about these unfortunate brothers. The next day, they went together to visit the children, having previously bought food, clothes, and toys.
Sergey’s wife, Elena, says that she immediately realized that everything was serious. They already had a son who was about to turn one year old (and Lena also had three daughters from a previous marriage). But she saw that because of these children, her husband literally could not find a place for himself. And suddenly: «Let’s take them, Lena!» — and this was no longer discussed.
Just then the family sold the car, they wanted to change it but decided that it could wait. Instead of new transport, they bought the boys winter and summer clothes, toys, and they also needed medicines, since both Maxim and Dima had many diseases. Lena and her one-year-old baby stood in more than one queue at the authorities to receive all the documents for adoption. The biological mother nevertheless appeared at the hospital to write a statement of refusal. Doctors say that the children clung to her legs, they tore them off from her. The mother looked at them with indifference, and then turned around and left without saying anything.
After treatment in the hospital, the children went home to their new parents. Elena remembers that on the first night, when she made up their beds, they whispered: «Oh, Mommy, how nice! It was so cold at home and very dirty», — my heart was squeezed by these words.
Now Maxim is 5 years old, Dima is 4, Maxim thinks like an adult: «You know, Mom, I will be like our dad, I will have a big family, a house and a jeep, and I will never leave my children!».
