/ Amnesty to Illegal immigrants in Poland
Don't they send their kids to school? All nine births in private hospitals I assume
2 of the oldest were pulled out of high school years ago to work for their father.
all births were done at home.
They are, by US standards, VERY, very poor, as the whole town is. It's hardly been touched by modernization since the end of the war. They live in a 165-yr-old wooden/brick house built by my great-great-great-grandparents. They own a HUGE chunk of land around their house, yet never use it.
My mom's brother has never even left the podlasie region. He's 43 years old now.
When my grandma died in '02, I suppose her only son wanted to continue on the old-world 'tradition' of raising a big, harding-working family, like my grandma did (and as a widow). My mom and her 4 sisters all moved abroad.
What I admire greatly about them is that they practice very old-fashioned slavic traditions, and more importantly, give what this country seriously lacks, CHILDREN. :)
Btw, NO native Pole
would dare criticize one of their hard-working countrymen and their families!!!
