I cannot say why these things happen to our children.

Slava is physically handicapped. He is incapable of having his own family and living on his own. It is hard to put up with.

He is a kid — forever. He is nice and friendly, he likes everyone. I fear thoughts of his future. I don’t know what will happen when we are no longer there for him.

We can only love him, cherish him. Right here and right now.
