Life's dull without Sergey

About a year ago, Larissa and Cyril adopted little Sergey from a foster home, where he had been placed after the death of his biological mother.

Five-year-old blond boy Sergey is sitting on his dad's lap and pretends he is driving. The kid asks tons of questions. He is restless, curious, kind, and trusting young kid. Soon comes his mother Larissa and the kid jumps on her lap and cuddles with her. She gently strokes his head. Both Larissa and Cyril simply adore their Sergey. They look at him as though he is a miraculous creature, a gift of heavens. He calls them “mom and dad" and it is difficult to imagine what horrible tortures they had to overcome in order to be together. 

About a year ago, Larissa and Cyril adopted little Sergey from a foster home, where he had been placed after the death of his biological mother. Afterwards, Larissa’s and Cyril’s lives became centered on their little kid. Nowadays, they cannot even picture their life without Sergey. He represents everything for them. Now they can truly call themselves a “family”. 

Larissa and Cyril had lived together for nearly twenty years before they adopted Sergey. They have always been a truly happy family. They have always traveled together, gone fishing, etc. They got acquainted at one of the construction sites. They have been friends for a long time. Afterwards, each one of them had to move back to their home towns. It did not take long for Larissa to realize her true feelings for Cyril. She packed her belongings and traveled to his town in search of her beloved. Soon, they got married. The couple really wanted to have a baby. Unfortunately, Larissa was unable to conceive. She even went through a difficult surgery, but it did not yield any positive results. She did not know what to do.

On top of their family problems, Larissa was diagnosed with cancer. She had to undergo another set of surgical procedures. Nobody could tell her for sure how she will live. Everyone remained in a state of shock for a long time. Back then in those times of trouble the couple decided to adopt a baby once Larissa’s condition improves. After her long stay at one of the local hospitals, Larissa along with her husband Cyril drove to the foster home and adopted little Sergey. He was three. Larissa was in her late thirties.

Today, Sergey has his own room, his own bed and his own toys. Neither one of the parents is fearful for the boy's future. They are certain that their enormous love is enough to raise a healthy kid.
