The Bulgarian Roma family that made headlines across the world lives in dire poverty in the Roma quarter of the central Bulgarian town of Nikolaevo.

Sasha Ruseva, the Bulgarian biological mother of the blond girl Maria, found in a Roma camp in Greece, is threatening to commit suicide if the social services take her children away.

Last Friday, DNA test proved that Ruseva is the mother four-year-old Maria, while her husband Atanas Rusev is the father.

On Thursday, Bulgaria's State Agency for Child Protection issued an order to remove the children from Rusevi's family and to accommodate them in social or foster homes.

Ruseva is adamant she wants to keep the kids. She says the social workers have promised her earlier the State would buy a house for the family, where she could raise the children.

The family lives in miserable conditions and extreme poverty.
