My family is my two beloved sons: Maxim will soon turn 20 and Stepan is only a year and a half. I love my boys very much, they are wonderful. Maxim is a college student, he is the man of the family because the boys are growing up without a father. Maxim knows how to do all kinds of things: he can tile the bathroom walls, fix the electric cables in the house, repair shoes and furniture. It was my father, Maxim’s grandfather, who taught him all those skills. My father is the best in the world. He’s like the father to the boys. He not only helps me raise my sons, but also supports us financially. It’s very important as well. I work as a lab technician at the university and my salary is small, so without my father’s help I wouldn’t have been able to provide for my two children.
