“The real heroes of our time were the deacon Nikolai Lavrenov and his mother Elena Zhivova, who took into their family, which already had six children, three more adopted ones.
The couple was taken away by the girl literally according to the announcement, the other two children were taken from the mothers who were going to have an abortion, dissuading them from this harmful act for their souls. Now in the family of the clergyman and his mother – a writer, journalist and artist – nine children are being brought up, including six, whom they had previously married.
This is not the only such example in Russia, but very significant. More and more of our fellow citizens are sorting out children from boarding schools by families, giving them the warmth, education and support they need so much for normal development. And it is necessary to talk about such cases as often as possible so that a good example becomes infectious.
