Présentation de l'éditeur

In 1990, a young boy afflicted with cerebral palsy was born, prematurely, in Russia. His name was Vanya. His mother abandoned him to the state childcare system and he was sent to a bleak orphanage called Baby House 10. Once there, he entered a nightmare world he was not to leave for more than eight years. Housed in a ward with a group of other children, he was clothed in rags, ignored by most of the staff and given little, if any, medical treatment. He was finally, and cruelly, confined for a time to a mental asylum where he lived, almost caged, lying in a pool of his own waste on a locked ward surrounded by psychotic adults. But, that didn't stop Vanya.

Even in these harsh conditions, he grew into a smart and persistent young boy who reached out to everyone around him. Two of those he reached out to--Sarah Philps, the wife of a British journalist, and Vika, a young Russian woman--realized that Vanya was no ordinary child and they began a campaign to find him a home. After many twists and turns, Vanya came to the attention of a single woman living in the United States named Paula Lahutsky. After a lot of red tape and more than one miracle, Paula adopted Vanya and brought him to the U.S. where he is now known as John Lahutsky, an honors student at Freedom High School in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and a member of the Boy Scouts of America Order of the Arrow.
In The Boy From Baby House 10, Sarah's hus band, Alan Philps, helps John Lahutsky bring this inspiring true-life story of a small boy with a big heart and an unquenchable will to readers everywhere.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 From Russia With Love 27 août 2010
In 1990, a young boy named Vanya was born with possible cerebral palsy. Left in an orphanage, the young boy was relegated to an overcrowded ward where he and his fellow inmates received minimal care and even less in the way of love. Clad in rags and often left alone for long periods of time, Vanya makes it plain that he is quite bright. He makes overtures to the other children and even to the staff. Sadly, many of the children are physically abused at worst, neglected and ignored at best.

The sad thing about these Kafkaesque institutions that would make even Dickens cringe is that many of the children are ignored to the point where they no longer function. They are kept confined and, as they age out of the nursery are relegated to asylums where they often serve the remainder of their lives. The "internat" as these hellholes/asylums are called are nothing short of horrifying and appalling. They are, as another reviewer on the U.S. boards aptly stated, little more than concentration camps. Sadly, staff in such places have not received training and are coming in with a Stalinist approach. Vanya even served time in such an institution, left to simmer in his own waste as he was often kept confined.

Vanya lucks into a kind new ward worker. She shows the children affection, but is reprimanded for her efforts. She does notice the bright young boy with the smile and the ready questions. Vanya is special.

In addition to the kind ward staffer, Vanya meets another angel. Her name is Sarah Philips and she works to secure his release from Baby House 10. He makes overtures to Sarah, who is captivated by him. That is a turning point in both of their lives. Sarah encourages her husband Alan, a photojournalist to use the media on behalf of Vanya and his fellow inmates.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Horrifyng, Moving and Ultimately Satisfying 17 octobre 2009
Par Dr. Cathy Goodwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Just when you think there's no more way to find cruelty in the world, this book comes along. John Lahutsky's story begins when he was Vanya, a child abandoned by an immature mother, at the mercy of Russian orphanages. These orphanages come across as bizarre, like an experiment to see what happens to children deprived of care, let alone human interaction and attention. Sadly, we already know. The children lose their ability to function, get diagnosed as uneducable, and descend into a vicious spiral. They move from the indifference of the Baby House to the horror of the "internat," the insane asylums that resemble concentration camps.

To be fair, the institutional staff are also victims: underpaid and helpless. Raised under Stalin, the director of Vanya's Baby House has never learned to make decisions or take charge.

Vanya demonstrates the psychological construct of resilience. He reaches out to other children and to visiting adults. Reaching out to Sarah Philips turns his life around. Sarah enlistes her husband Alan, a journalist with media access. Sarah and a Russian volunteer, Vika, managed to rescue Vanya from the cycle. One adoption falls through. (This is not a spoiler. When you read the book jacket, you know who finally adopts Vanya.)

After a series of hair-raising adventures, Vanya becomes part of a grass roots foster parent organization. Two Russian women offer to adopt Vanya, but a miracle happens. An American single woman, Paula, adopts Vanya. Paula, a school psychologist with a Russian heritage, turns out to be the perfect "mom." In a moving chapter at the end of the book, John shares his story about living in the Pennsylvania countryside. His resilience and self-protective personality come across even when he talks of choosing a Boy Scout troop.

Author Alan Philips gives co-author credit to Vanya, now known as John. To their credit, the book is written with a simplicity that sets off Vanya's early life. Although I can't imagine anyone reading this book without being moved, the authors maintain an upbeat, unsentimental, matter of fact style. Hannah Arendt's phrase, "the banality of evil," comes to mind as we read about everyone who harms these children, from the "commissions" who condemn them with pseudo-scientific diagnoses to the hospital orderly who insults Vanya's mother.

Several people have started foundations and movements to help, including Sarah Philips. Hopefully publication of this book will trigger some action. We need an organization like Amnesty International to rescue those who languish in prison without ever having been condemned.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Resilience, inspiration and belief... 6 décembre 2009

No need to go out shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, The Boy from Baby House 10 is this year's Christmas gift for family and friends!

This little boy's life is chronicled in a way that should only be told in fiction. John's story, unfortunately, is not fiction but the honest truth of a life discarded. The heroes in John's story include John and the many good people who touched his life and with a sense of justice, became his guardian angels as well. Alan Philps and John Lahutsky have partnered up to tell a story and raise the consciousness of all who take the time to read it.

I was inspired by John's resilience to extremely harsh conditions. For this very young child to have faced `an internat' where older adults were housed because there was no other place for them in society, and call out for adults who were going about their business trying to help, as volunteers in any way they could to relieve the boredom of an asylum. How could it be the volunteer role to save children? Isn't that the role of caretaker?

For all of us who have too much and want for nothing, John reminds that perhaps if we ever need to test our resolve and resilience, we might find happiness in knowing that this one little boy made it and with a little help from our guardian angels, we can too.

Alan and John, thank you for sharing this very inspirational story. Sarah, you are what many women aspire to become - someone who can take care of their family and support others as well by giving of yourself so compassionately. And, finally, to Paula Lahutsky, mother of John Lahutsky, you certainly did find the most loving boy to mother!! I can't wait for the sequel!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Human Spirit Triumphs 1 décembre 2009
Par Ms D Sherry - Publié sur Amazon.com
The story of Vanya/John from unspeakably appalling Russian "ophanages" to successful and happy life in America is totally absorbing. It reads like a thriller: I was so anxious to turn to the next page to see what happens next.
Whilst the story is very sad and at times I wanted to grab some of these cruel and unthinking people and shake them, it never wallows in "misery lit" but tells the story in a way that also celebrates the ordinary people who achieve so much in their quest to save Vanya and improve the lives of other neglected children. It is their story too and you do feel uplifted by this as well as disgusted with the state system in Russia.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read for adoptive parents 7 janvier 2010

You hear stories about the conditions of Soviet era orphanages that are horrible but to read about it from a child's perspective is gut wrenching. I couldn't stop reading. The mindset portrayed of the staff is still holds to this day (2008). Our daughter is Russian-American (adopted 2008) and we spent 3 weeks in Russia visiting her everyday for 2-3 hours before final decree was issued. We met many people there who could not understand why we were adopting this child and who were also equally surprised that we were not "arrogant, rich Americans wanting to sell her bodyparts." At times I could only laugh in complete understanding the frustration of dealing with the court system and their multiple requests for more and more documents, then became saddened to think the caregivers would have told our daughter we were not coming for her as they told Vanya/John when his adoption to England was prolonged. Highly recommended.
