14 liters of soup and a bucket of potatoes a day: At 32, a woman gave birth to 12 children

Katya Kirichenko from the village of Verkhovino in the Sverdlovsk region considers children the greatest happiness in her life. The woman is just over 30 years old, every day she works as a mother. Katya and her husband Janis have 12 children. The eldest is 14 years old and the youngest one year old. Katya has been pregnant almost all the years of her life since she was 18. We will tell you why the woman wanted to become a mother of many children and how her large family lives.

The story of the acquaintance of the Kirichenko spouses is full of romanticism. Young Katya and Janis knew each other through mutual acquaintances. The guy found Katya’s phone number, but did not dare to call her for a long time. Eventually, the bride and groom spoke on the phone and agreed to meet. But the date had to be canceled: Janis had a car accident and broke her leg.

The guy was recovering at home, but Katya, after some time, ended up in the hospital herself. The girl needed treatment, but all her friends left for the New Year holidays. Janis came to see Katya every day in the hospital and on foot, with a broken leg, she climbed to the 9th floor – he there was no elevator in the hospital. His sensitivity and concern touched Katya. The girl accepted the proposal to start a family. They married when she was 18.


“It was very difficult for me with my first child. I thought it was all so difficult. I couldn’t help it, I cried. He didn’t sleep long at night. We took turns with my husband and my mother. And there were screams and teeth … I remember and think how I accepted the second. When Maxim was one year old, I realized that I hadn’t known the joys of motherhood.

The couple dreamed of a girl. Her daughter Eva appeared when Katya was 20 years old. The girl was calm, and Katya liked to talk about the weather. Therefore, she and her husband decided to have a third child.

Today, Kirichenko has 12 children: Maxim, 14; Eva, 12; Alice, 11; Milana, 10; Kolya, 9 years old; Veronique, 7 years old; Yana, 6 years old; Lera, 4 years old; twins Vitalina and Leva, 3; Tolya, 2 and a half years old; Vic, 1 year old.

Before the birth of baby Victoria, the parents of many children lived in a private house without running water or sewage. They huddled in one and a half rooms with a total area of ​​34 m².

The house needed to be renovated and invested. Although her husband constantly worked, and Katya received allowances for having many children, there was not enough money. At first it was not even possible to buy separate beds for the children. There were three sofas on which the children spent the night. Then the volunteers donated two bunk beds to the family, and accommodation became easier.

The family took turns having dinner – 3-4 people each, more did not enter the kitchen. The family did the dishes in the bath, the washing machine worked almost nonstop. Katya devoted herself to life. She had hobbies: embroidery, knitting, but there was almost no time for them.

Local media attention is constantly riveted on Katya’s family. She is a mother-heroine, rewarded with medals for the birth and upbringing of children. Journalists and MPs came to each excerpt with congratulations. But no one was in a hurry to solve the problem of the dilapidated habitat.

Of course, the Kirichenko family received land for the construction of a new house. The couple started saving money for building materials. But it turned out that the site is in the forest, there are no roads and it is still impossible to live there.
Eventually, one of the local businessmen drew attention to the family problem. He bought a three-story house, made a good repair and moved the Kirichenko family for free. Now the children have their own bedrooms, a large playroom, living room, gym, swimming pool, spacious kitchen and all amenities.

Prepares 14 liters of soup and peels a bucket of potatoes per day
To prepare breakfast, Katya got up at 6:30 a.m. every day. She carried water from the well, fried eggs from 50 to 60 eggs or about 100 pancakes. Then she accompanied the children to school and to the garden, and she herself did the housework and cooked dinner – every day 14 liters of soup.
After school, the guys helped their mother: they fed chickens and cattle, harvested hay, worked in the garden and cooked dinner together. For example, they peeled a bucket of potatoes.

The children had time to walk around and rest, and Katya helped the children with their lessons, the teaching materials explained. Now the woman dreams of becoming a teacher, because she realized that she is good at working with children.

In the new house, the family schedule has changed a little: the children’s school has moved closer, Katya does not have to carry water from the well. But work education remains: a woman teaches children to take care of themselves and their neighbors, to work around the house, but not to forget about personal development through circles and sports sections.

Katya notes that she did not suffer from postpartum depression. From the birth of each of the babies, she appreciated and is now happy to be able to realize herself as the mother of many children. She teaches children to negotiate with each other, to protect the family, to forgive them small pranks and to support diligence. For new moms, she advises:

“We need to be calmer, easier to understand. Nothing in life will change if semolina woke up in your house. The main thing is that the children are alive, healthy, clean, fed. Everything else will have to wait. Zapara is not in life – it is in the head. Having become a mother of many children, at some point in your life you forget yourself. The focus is on your children. To survive all this, you must love your children very much. They said to me: “You have porridge in your hair. But I don’t look in the mirror.”

Katya admits that raising children takes energy, time and resources. But in front of her, a happy old age and a big friendly family. Katya is convinced that raising worthy people is a huge contribution to the future of the country. She compares children to a blank slate on which a masterpiece can be made.
