An 8-year-old boy undertook to take care of his sick mother himself. Now he is 24 years old

This tale was widely publicized 15 years ago. Vlad, an ordinary schoolboy of eight years old, cared for the house and his semi-paralyzed mother on his alone.

People from all over the world were watching the story with awe, admiration, and wonder at the possibility of the situation.

This family’s life is certainly not easy. The boy’s father was a heavy drinker, and his mother couldn’t take it any longer and abandoned him.

When Vlad was 8 years old, a serious change happened in their family — his mother had a stroke, and then she was paralyzed.

At that time his father was no longer alive. And a very young schoolboy faced this trouble all alone.

His vivid future was an orphanage.

But Vlad was not one of those who submit to fate, he did not leave his mom.

Despite his age, he began to do his best to help her to recover.

Vlad was lucky — a neighbor took custody of him, she settled all the issues in social services, but then the boy needed to cope on his own.

When Vlad turned 16, the media started to talk about him and his mother again. This story left almost no one indifferent, even officials undertook to help the boy.

His efforts to recover mom were not in vain — his mom started talking again, yes, not as well as before, but still, it was progressing.

Now the guy is 24 years old, he got the profession of a welder and works in his hometown.

The family moved from an old wooden house to an apartment, which was given to them by the local authorities.

Vlad is still working tirelessly on a bright future for his family.
