The three-year and two-year Maxim Dimka lived in a village in the Altai region. Pope they have never seen. However, and the mother is also seen infrequently — sons of one woman left by fleeing to "a date" for the next gentleman. One day, a neighbor noticed that it was too long not seen outside the house mother, and called the police.
The call came to the group, which included, in addition to the juvenile officer, and was a police lieutenant Sergey Sharauhov, a former policeman, who has visited four times in hot spots.
— When we entered the house, my heart sank, — says Sergey. — I've seen a lot, but that is in our days! Dwell in the little house embossed box that a three-year Maxim stuffed with things to not blow. But in the court of March! Pillows or curtains or products. The eldest of the boys, Maxim, saved a single loaf of bread, which he and his brother were: Dima gave a little nibble some bread, and then hid the loaf — do not know how much they will have to sit alone. To warm brother, wrapped it in a mattress. My mind immediately flashed — "pick them up", and asked aloud: "Will go with me?" But then they were afraid. Then Maxim, hearing the story, cried out: "Father, and how I did not recognize that?!"
— In my hands tingling, tears welling … there can not be indifferent … — still worrying about stuttering speech Sergei.
It turned out that the brothers sat in a cold house for six days. If it were not vigilant neighbor is unknown, would have saved them. The boys immediately rushed to the hospital: to treat, clean up, and of course feed.
Sergey also called his wife Elena and excitedly talked about the foundling. The next morning they had gone together to visit the boys to the hospital, gaining fruit and toys ..
— I knew immediately that it was serious as soon as Sergei called — says Elena. — Our little son had just turned one year old. (And Lena had three daughters from a previous marriage). And when he got home, my husband just did not find the place itself. He sits silent in his own thoughts. "Let them take away, Len!" — This is not discussed. The couple immediately bought kids a clothing because they just did not have anything. Lena-year old child in her arms went around all the rooms, and defended more than one place to collect all the papers for adoption. Mom and Dad Sergei and Lena kids were called back in the hospital.
Maxim now 5 years old, Dima — 4. Max talks like an adult. In all copies father Sergei.
— See the flower, he immediately picks and carries it to me — laughing Lena. — Stool and will put side by side to the village and the rest, taking care to have lunch on time. He says, 'You know, Mom, I'll be like our dad. I will have a big family, a house and I'll never leave your children! "
