Large family of Vardiashvili is deprived of everything that is considered normal in the 21st century. Every day the family faces a choice – to feed four children or to buy medicines for a sick daughter, without which there will be an imminent death. What would you do, friends, if you had such a choice?
Nino and Vazha got married early. Nino was 15, and Vazha was 18. Vazha served in the army and his unit was located in the village not far from Nino's house. She immediately fell in love with a cute guy in military uniform! He, too, was not indifferent to the young beauty.
Then he asked her out on a date, and promised that as soon as the service was over, they would get married!
Nino was still a child herself. She grew up without a father and Vazha became everything to her! He was the most important person! When Nino was 17 years old, exactly 17 years ago, they had their first daughter! Everything was normal, inexperienced parents could not expect anything wrong! Up to a year, nothing foretold trouble. But then something in Tamara's behavior changed. The daughter lay for days on end, sometimes not even crying... A calm child, parents were happy... But then epilepsy attacks began... Convulsions... They sounded the alarm and it turned out to be cerebral palsy!
"It was... a verdict! I know that even cancer can be cured, but cerebral palsy remains with a person until the end of life! He does not kill immediately, but condemns the child and all his relatives to torment and suffering." – Nino told us.
– Nino, tell us about Your life.
Nino: For 17 years, my husband and I have not known a quiet life! Every day we fight for the life of our daughter ... But Tamara, we have 4 children more. I know many people would say "why did you give birth", it would be easier to look after one daughter! I want to tell such evil people: children are the grace of the Lord! The one who refuses to have children says NO to God! Vazha and I have let God enter our family through our children 5 times! And if he decides to give us his little angel again, we will let him in!
– Nino, tell us about one of your normal days. They must be similar, right?
Nino: The day begins with Tamara crying... She always cries when she wakes up! She always cries... My husband and I get up, dress her, I alone can not cope with it, Tamara weighs 45 kilograms. My husband hasn't worked for four years. I do not cope alone. We need him... and the other kids also need our attention.
Let me introduce you to them. Meggi is 13 years old. She is at school now. She helps us very much. In fact, for the youngest children she is not only a sister but also a mother.
This is our beautiful Catherine. She is 5. She's our Princess! A kind-hearted person... When I look at her, I tell myself, "Thank you, Lord, for giving me the happiness of being her mother."
Our only son Gavril is 3 years old. You know, he's special! He has two names. He's Gavril-David! We waited so long for the boy that we decided to name him after Saint Gabriel and after the most powerful king David! I know, I am sure, he will proudly bear this name and do a lot of good things for our Georgia!
And here's another question: maybe I shouldn't have given birth to him? Isn't that a God's present?!
And here is Mariam... She is a year old... She is our joy! The most obedient and the sweetest... If we thought like those "smart people" who give advice not to give birth to children, now there would be no such person as her! No Gavril, no Catherine... and now they are. And we are all together.
– Nino, I'm going to ask you a very awkward question, but you can leave it unanswered if you wish. Why don't your relatives and friends help you?
Nino: If it was not for them, we would have died of hunger already. Do you think you can survive with 600 lari? Tamara's medications are expensive... Her pension isn't enough! We also need diapers. And there is less than 300 lari to feed the children and pay for utilities and rent... Can someone teach me how to do it?
– And now let me talk to the kids. Meggi, could I ask you, what are you dreaming about?
Meggi (13 years old): I don't even know... maybe I wigh something would change in our lives! I wish mom and dad are healthy, and that Tamara doesn't cry... I need notebooks and pens for school. Probably that's all…
Catherine (5 years old): I want my mother not to have a bad back and that she could take me in her arms... So mom and dad and Meggie call me a Princess, but have you seen a Princess without a beautiful dress? Or shoes? Or crown? If I have any, then you can call me a Princess!
– Nino, you have wonderful kids! As you know, the articles of our Fund are read by almost all of Georgia. They are read by officials from government agencies. Do you expect there will be a resonance?
Nino: the only thing I ask, I beg, is not to let my children starve to death! Help us to survive! I don't know what to ask... Tamara needs tests; now her body does not react to the medications that were prescribed a year ago... She is getting worse and worse... And epilepsy attacks happen more and more often... To tell the truth (Nino switched to a whisper) I am afraid to find her dead every next morning... I am afraid for her life... and I can't examine her.
– Address our readers!
Nino: I think I've already said too much. Now everyone has their own problems... and here I am, with my children... no one is obliged to read this. But I believe that Georgians do not leave their compatriots in trouble! And officials are like people from another planet. They don't understand the pain of others.
