The story of Miroshnichenko family started in 2007 when parents after long-term infertility treatment found out that they are expecting twins. Kids were so in a hurry to see the parents that were born 10 weeks earlier. Valia was born first with a weight a little bit more than a kilogram. Valerii weighted 270 grams more than his sister. Mother Tatiana didn't expect that on such happy day she will feel a lot of fear for her children. In the first minutes of life tiny newborns were connected to artificial ventilation. Three long months of injections, droppers and treatment.

They are children of war. Today's war. They remember well how it is to sit in a basement for several days, hiding from shelling. They remember well tanks on their street. They remember well how their parents packed the most needed things, grab their treasure – child – and ran away from native towns, looking for shelter, far away from the horror. They remember well panic, screaming, and how grandmother was praying, holding Christ in an old hand.
The story of this family is impressive. Baby-twins Valera and Valia were supposed to bring joy and endless happiness of parenting. But everything went wrong. During the first years son was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and daughter - is visually impaired.
Constant rehabilitation and exercises did help the boy, but many surgeries didn't returned back the ability to see to the girl.
In addition to blindness the epilepsy started. But the caring brother always was near ready to help or just talk sincerely.
After severe disease Valera started to loose hearing... Parents actively started to treat him. And than war came to native Donetsk.
'Hi, my name is Nastya, I'm four years old and I am real princess – this is what my parents say, and they never lie! They were waiting for me and were dreaming about wonderful fabulous life for me. But for now, the fairy tale is horror. At first an evil witch cast a spell on me and my legs got paralyzed. I can't run, jump and dance… I even can't walk, despite I am grown up! This is very sad. I want to go to dance and to wear real princess's dress!
Her blue like sky eyes and charming smile - are from her mother. Her nose, ears and purposeful look - from her father. Alexandra is the second child in the family, 18 years younger than her sibling! The child which was born from heart. The baby was born on the 33rd week with high rates of antibodies and billirubin. She underwent two blood transfusions and intensive care. After several weeks she was released home as totally healthy. When Sasha was 6 month old the convulsive syndrome appeared. And going from hospital to hospital started.

Such disease as cerebral palsy is well known to everybody. But to assume that it can appear in his family nobody can.
The Rasstalny family also could not. Strong, loving family, first kid – healthy girl is almost grown-up. Second pregnancy was full of hope to meet healthy son – joy, and support for the parents. The misfortune has come not expectedly and destroyed all plans for future and usual rhythm of life.
Is it easy to be elderly in Ukraine? Is it easy to be exile in the own country? Is it easy to cope with serious disease alone? And is it easy to survive, when all these conditions are combined?
