This woman, originally from one of the Slavic countries, raised 85 children, of whom two were her biological children and the remaining 83 were adopted.
Today, Mrs. Sorokina is 70 years old and after the loss of her husband, she continues to single-handedly raise 17 children.
The kind-hearted woman’s children range in age from 7 to 47 years old. The eldest already have 50 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
After graduating from technical school, Tanya became an engineer.
In 1970, she gave birth to a daughter, and three years later, a son was born who had health issues and is now in a wheelchair, completely blind.
In the 1970s, the couple adopted six children, and from then on, the family continued to grow.
All the children the couple adopted were abandoned or were in orphanages.
The Sorokins became one of the first families to receive the status of a family orphanage in their region.
To support the needs of their large family, the father had to work day and night as a taxi driver.
Mrs. Sorokina’s father, a kind-hearted disabled war veteran, also helped his daughter raise the orphaned children.
When the heroine’s husband passed away, she didn’t stop raising her young children.
According to her, life has become easier now because the older children help her.
“For me, the most beautiful gift is when my children come to see me,” she said.
This woman with a heart of gold remembers all her children’s birthdays. She remembers each one perfectly and follows them on social networks.
The woman mentioned that there are still some children who have abandoned her, but they are only 10.
“They have grown up, and I know nothing about them. They don’t write, they don’t call.”
But fortunately, all the others are grateful to her. They talk to her, visit her, and give her gifts.
This generous woman is always smiling and looks to the future with hope.
