He was suppsed to come as millions of other childern. We were glad that Natalia would have a brother to play with and look after. We had plans about his and out future. We chose him a name. It was a bit unusulas for our family.

It was June. My wife, Ela, felt bad. We went to our doctor. He examined her and told there was no reason for concern. But she was still worried and we decided to consult another doctor. We were greatly surprised when he referred my wife to complex examination at a hospital.

It was the beginning of our great trouble. It turned out that things were extremely bad. After three-day stay at Sieradz hospital she was taken to Lodz. They have better equipment to save the lives of both-my wife and my son. It was really proper decision.

So, on Saturday, July 28 1995, my wife was in care of Lodz doctors. I didn't even suppose that the worst was before us.

It was Sunday next day that I came to hospital to vivit my wife wnd I was astonished when they told me I had a son. It's a pity, but it wasn't a reason to be a happy in that situation. I knew something bad had happened. The doctors informed that my son's condition was critical. According to them, my little son had 20% chance to survive. He couldn't breath himself and all his vital functions were kept artificially. We could only wait and hope for the best...

My wife was getting better but our tiny son fought for life. Several times his condition was so hard that we thought the Lord would take him. But nevertheless Mikolaj survived. Three months later we brought him home. He's 18 years old now, but he is different from other children

The doctors' diagnosis is: infantile cerebial palsy, which caused him to be a mentally retarded child. But he makes us happy, because he's so sweet, kind and very graceful. We fight for him. We would like to have him sit or say something... or give us a sign he understand us... or be a little bit fit so greatly...


We couldnt't manage without our grandparents and volunteers. The latters give us a lot of faith and stimulate us not to give up. They come to realise the therapeutic program worked out at
"Give a Chance" Fund Institute in Torun. We've altered two rooms in our house into therapeutic halls for Mikolaj and we spend there long hours, days, weeks, moths, years... and we still belive. To spite bad fate and some very wise doctors...

But all this would be impossible without the money our sponsors pay in Mikolaj's account and our  volunteers help. Thanks to them all we can help our son. It's hard to believe that someone comes to your home to help your little child and doesn't take any money for it. They are absolutelyspecial people. They live in Zdunska Wola, Lask and Karsznice.

If you feel like helping our son, please come to us and be our volunteer.
