Foster mother of eight disabled children Madinat Shakhbulatova shared the story behind her decision to adopt orphans in an interview filmed on 26th of April in the Makhachkala region in Dagestan.

She said she made a vow to adopt children if God helped her son Ramazan to heal. Ramazan had been badly injured while serving in a law-enforcement body and spent six months in a critical condition.

SOT, Madinat Shakhbulatova, mother of adopted children (Russian): "At first we took three boys. I watched their reaction. Three months later we took three children more. Then took a girl, then more [children] and the last one is this little [child]. We wanted to take the littlest one, so we did it."

SOT, Madinat Shakhbulatova, mother of adopted children (Russian): "They are sick and everyone has their own diagnose. Everyone shows their own character. It's needed to adapt to them and explain everything to them and leave them for a while until they're calm and then explain to them how to do things. They've been with me for one and a half year. They behave well already."

Journalist (Russian): "Do they want to return to the orphanage? What do they say, do they remember it?"

Madinat Shakhbulatova, mother of adopted children (Russian): "No, they don't want to. When some people ask them they say no, they want to stay with mother."

SOT, Ramazan Shakhbulatov, son of Madinat Shakhbulatova (Russian): "If she made a promise, I think she did the right thing. I'm supporting her in this situation."
