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.
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

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
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...
all this would be impossible without the money our
sponsors pay in Mikolaj's account and our
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.
