After delivery, I was depressed for a long time. I used to grab my child and crying with him. I avoided contact with people though nobody made me feeling awkward. I think I myself had more expectation that people will blow me up than it really happened; nobody ever asked me why I was a single mother.

But one day, still a baby, he asked me – when will my father come? The family looked at me in surprise – where he had heard about it?

I am not asking anything special but sometimes I cannot even buy very elementary things for him. He is very clever and never protests my refusals. When I tell him that I cannot buy something because we do not have money, he does not complain. But I know that he worries about it and I do not want him to be sad. I am afraid he may get isolated…
