31-year-old Omsk Anton Kudryavtsev became famous after he began to babysit six children alone. There was a tragedy in his life that you wouldn’t wish on an enemy. His wife died of cancer, leaving Anton a widower…
Grief broke into the family suddenly. Anton and Anya already had three children. They were waiting for the next replenishment when my wife was diagnosed with a terrible diagnosis. Anya decided to sacrifice her life to save the lives of future triplets.
Journalists made a story about a single father raising 6 children, and Anton became famous throughout the country. Hundreds of letters from female fans started coming to him. The widower even met some of the women, but usually on the first date it became clear that these ladies were not suitable for family life. among other fans, a certain Lyudmila wrote to him, who later became his wife. Her lines immediately hooked the man. After a short correspondence, they agreed on a date. Anton decided to take the children to the meeting, and he did not lose.
Luda immediately charmed the man and his children with some incredible kindness. Anton’s daughters literally did not get off Lyudmila’s hands, they liked her so much. And the eldest son even told his dad about a new acquaintance: «You need to take it. She’s good!»
After a while, Anton’s beloved, who already had one child from her first marriage, admitted that she had seen a prophetic dream. She dreamed that she was raising seven children. And the next day she saw a report about Anton and realized that it was fate!
«At first I just felt sorry for Anton, and I wrote him a letter with words of support. And then everything started to spin somehow imperceptibly… I have never been deprived of attention, but there was no real man to rely on. And Anton turned out to be just like that!» — Lyudmila said.
Luda lived in Omsk itself, then Anton and his children lived in the village of Irtysh 90 kilometers from the regional center. But this did not become an obstacle in the relationship: the bride and her son moved to their beloved in the village!
The wedding was modest. Anton and Lyudmila got married in a village church, and the next day they left to travel, leaving the children with their grandmother. But when the newlyweds returned home, they were waiting for another gift, though unexpected. Soon their family was replenished with two more children!
Anton and Luda helped the workers of the rehabilitation center, where homeless people, drug addicts and alcoholics find shelter. One of the center’s patients died, leaving two children orphaned. The kids were not needed by anyone, and Lyudmila offered to take them into the family.
«Anton and I thought about it and decided that no one but us could help these kids. And raising seven or nine children is not a big difference. They say that it is more difficult to raise one child than several, and this is really true!» — Lyudmila explained the reasons for such an act.
For the sake of the children, Luda had to quit her favorite job. According to her, it was one of the most difficult moments in her life. Now every woman’s day begins at half past seven in the morning, regardless of holidays and weekends. She only needs to cook 5 liters of soup at a time!
«Before, I was constantly worried that I wouldn’t have time to do something, but Anton was always there for me and helped me in everything.
He taught me how to allocate time correctly, so I have a couple of free minutes to rest,» Lyudmila shared her impressions.
The family owns a small farm. Anton has a repair team that is engaged in finishing work. But the money is still barely enough. Only 9,5 thousand rubles were spent on notebooks for children!
«Now they have taken two children practically naked. We want to buy them the best, because they have never seen anything good in their lives. They are happy with every candy and, even when they indulge, they do not make noise,» says the head of the family.
«I recently wrote to the president, asked for a minibus. In other regions, it is allocated to large families, but for some reason it is not allowed in our region. And we can’t fit into a regular car anymore — one sits on one,» Anton continued
And while adults solve their problems, children rejoice in their new life and wait for a miracle. Santa Claus is coming to an unusual family from Veliky Ustyug. He promised them many gifts!
