Politician and publicist Irina Khakamada believes that her daughter Maria Sirotinskaya, who suffers from Down syndrome, is already old enough to make decisions such as marriage.
True, Irina makes an allowance for the fact that people with this syndrome are too prone to fantasies and the result may be inversely proportional to desires:
"Fantasy and reality exist together, there are almost no boundaries, so it is not clear when they have a game, and when everything is real. They are such magicians. Therefore, there is no evil in them."
But at the moment, Khakamada is very happy for her daughter and fully approves of her choice of a life partner. She is proud that her daughter leads a completely independent life and is ready to build a family.
“Masha has grown up and is dating a young man. They have carrot love. They went to Channel One without me on Gordon's program and announced their wedding. Yes to health! They are adults. Don't have the right to do this? Have. And such programs can help other people, the parents of such children."
Irina said that thanks to her daughter, she learned to see the world as it is and learned a lot from her:
"Today the weather is good - and happiness. Masha smiles - happiness again. She writes to me every morning and evening:" You are the most beloved, the best mother in the world, "- and again happiness."
Khakamada noted that people with Down syndrome simply love their relatives and just people, they do not demand anything in return:
“Right now we were resting together. We were walking down the street, and I thought:" I have a loved one with me. Yes, he depends on me, so what? She doesn't need anything from me. Or rather, only one thing - that I be there. " This is a great lesson - to enjoy every moment of life. Here and now."
