Dmitry, 28, and his daughters of 3 years and 4 months of age.
To be a father for me is to be in love. To be loved and to be with people loving you. It means for me looking forward to seeing them again to give and receive that love you missed. Being a father means being eternally happy.
Denis, 32, and his sons aged 6 and 1.
It is difficult to be a father with all those sleepless nights after which you have to go to work and return home tired and devastated. But when you enter your apartment and see your kids running around happy that you come, you understand that all your efforts are worth this very moment. I’m happy to have two sons and plan to became a father of a girl too.

It’s hard but beautiful.
Kirill and his one-year old daughter.
Being a father implies bearing responsibility. It is your love, care and attention that will influence your child and make him/her the person he/she will be in future. It is my duty to give it all to my daughter.
Miras, 26, and his 2-month-old daughter.
I’ve always loved children and wanted to have kids. I thought I always wanted to have a son but when I learnt it was going to be a girl I was as happy. It was so touching when I first took her in my arms and I almost cryied of happiness. These are feelings that are hard to explain. You have to feel it. Every day I hurry up home after work to see my wife and my daughter again.
