The bright way. «Svetlyy put`»
 
Dozens of people were passing by the stillage in the homelike coffee house: some of them stood still for a moment to take a closer look on stillage, while others did not even care. The stillage was quite ordinary: black dried pieces of woods which framed the photos of children of different ages. 
Here is the first portrait – a boy, who is eight or nine years old. His eyes resembled some kind of bright limpets, which stared so lamentably, wildly and lonely, that everyone, who looks at them gets frozen. On the right side from his portrait there is a poem, written by scribbles. It is his favorite poem. The poem full of joy and hope… But what kind of hope?
Certainly, there are dozens of boys like him, hundreds, thousands. Left by parents, relatives and government.
The orphanage “Svetlyy put`” have sheltered 90 children of different ages. They go to ordinary schools. The school for orphans is a difficult test itself, so, it is even more difficult for them to sit at the same desk with children, who have parents.
“We ask our teachers to keep in secret from children that their classmate in an orphan. At least for two months. Children are very cruel beings, from whom it is quite hard to keep secrets, but when they realize, that an orphan boy or girl does not mean “ a bad friend”, they do not pay attention to their “otherness” anymore” – says the manageress of the orphanage.
