Booming Babies in Russia…

The birth and death rates in Russia 1950–2008 ...
The Old Chart, Time To Update…

The word is out that Russia is having a baby boom with birth rates up by 21%! This has happened over the past three years, a welcome turnaround from the alarming setback in the 1990s

From what I can tell after living here almost 4 years is that this statement is true. At least in Moscow

I see many families that are now made up of two kids whereas in the past one child would be the norm…

Sveta is from the older Soviet era and they believed in only one child and give all to that child. As she sees many two or more child families she wonders and still asks how could you care for more than one kid? I just say that there is enough love for all. I had more than one my self and it was not a problem…

I have even seen a couple of two and three across strollers. So I see lots kids all over the town we live in and they make lots of noise… 🙂

How sweet it is…
