Goodnight! And the author of this post is fighter Mikhail dictated for # yazhpat August 2 was the legendary day of the Airborne Forces # yazhpat, by the will of fate, from May 2009 to May 2010 he served in the 10th GRU Special Forces Brigade, military unit 51532 Friends, the defining phrase is urgent service , not the GRU special forces Carried away by the army arrogance # yazhpat put on a vest for August 2 .. And I, fighter Mikhail, began to practice my tricks on it 🙂 grab the beard / hair / nose – my favorite 🙂 🙂 (see photos ) and then he began to tell me “no one but us” “there are no tasks that are impossible, there are landing troops.” But in general, friends, seriously, I want to touch on another delicate topic .. the reason for pride. Parachute jump, graduation from university, military service, employment for a good position, getting a sports category, an academic degree .. and what are you proud of !? You know, personally, I respect the fighters of a certain group of troops, who are really professionals in their field, who know how many lines the D-6 and Z-5 parachute has, who remember the words of the oath and the duty of the orderly .. and I am neglected by accidentally wearing berets and vests .. who are not proud of their merits, for overcoming a year-long service, with an actually indirect attitude towards special forces, is an imaginary merit .. and pride is important .. it forms your self-esteem .. and if this pride and its reasons are imaginary, then what will self-esteem be?) well .. happy holiday (past), all involved! There are no impossible tasks, as they say, there are landing troops!) And “Nobody but us” !! funny, both slogans are so close to my beliefs A post shared by Evgeny Anisimov (@evgen_tyz) on Aug 3, 2020 at 1:41 pm PDT

It turns out that the mother of her son, upon learning that he would be born with this condition, decided to deliver him to a specialized institute for children with disabilities, since he assured that he did not feel capable of raising the child.

Evgeny found out what happened and did not hesitate for a single second to turn his life around to dedicate himself to his baby, who remained hospitalized for several weeks, very serious, due to pneumonia but fortunately the doctors managed to save his lifetime.

With some delay, I hasten to share our first holiday with Misha: Happy Birthday! On August 28 we turned one year old! Despite the windy weather, the holiday was a success! The first photo session was replaced by the first trip to the cafe !!! Because there was no milk on the menu, Mishka preferred a sound sleep to small talk Friends! Again I express my gratitude to you and Mishkin !!! Thanks!!! Thanks @prekrasnovamariika for the awesome bunny / rabbit (I think he and his nephew would still argue who it is!) From @stranaulybokpm !! Thanks friends!! Many thanks to the photographer: @inna_ostaali_photo! It’s still a mystery to me how you can stay positive and cheerful with such an anxious dad like me and unexpectedly capricious Misha 🙂 Thank you !!! I would like to say the crown of gratitude to @moya_krovinushka! Elena and Tatiana Konstantinovna! Thank you very much for your support !!

After this hard experience, this dad decided to quit his job to dedicate himself 100% to his son, always supported by his family and friends.

Every long road starts with the first step. The search for God is something personal, secret and not always fast .. On August 23, 2019, we baptized Misha. His path has begun! Volgograd Temple of John the Baptist. Father Valery, Godmother Tamara and Godfather Artem became his companions on this difficult, but blessed path. Friends! I would like to express special gratitude to the organization My krovinushka @moya_krovinushka, especially Elena @ez_kras. Thank you! The process itself was not very familiar to us, thanks for being there! I would also like to say thanks to Uncle Stepa @massage_stepan, for the recommendations of Father Valery. And special thanks and deep bow to the super Man with a capital letter: Svetlana. Hats off to your stamina, strength and talent! @cveta_me @ Thank you, friends, that you are near! God bless you!

Currently, little Misha grows up surrounded by love from Evgeny, who is focused on his physical development, which is why he takes him to swimming lessons, as well as therapies that improve his development.

Without a doubt, the love bond between Evgeny and Misha is indestructible and that is the engine that encourages them to continue fighting together every day.
