Publisher Comments:

A boy named“Vanya” was born in Russia with cerebral palsy and is abandoned by his mother.  A British couple discovered Vanya and vowed to save him.  On the other side of the world, a woman in the US found herself longing to save a child when she heard about Vanya through her church. One little boy brought them all together.  The Boy From Baby House 10 is the real-life story of John Lahutsky, an American high school student who lived the early years of his life in Russia labeled an “imbecile” by the authorities, confined to bleak baby houses, imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital and denied the love of a real family.  Brought to the attention of the authorities by Alan and Sara Philps, Vanya was adopted by Paula Lahutsky who brought him to the US gave him a home and became the mother he dreamed of in his darkest hours.  In The Boy From Baby House 10, Alan Philps helps John tell his story, the saga of a small boy with a big heart and an unquenchable will to survive.
