Nicky thought that she was really lucky, because she had a loving husband and a daughter.
Although the girl was born in her first marriage, her second husband was a great man, who not only accepted her child, but loved her like his own daughter and supported her in every step of the way.
The only thing Nicky couldn’t stop thinking about was her childhood dream.
Since she was a little girl she knew, that she would want to adopt a child, once she grew up. The girl was fascinated by the idea of helping someone, who didn’t have a chance of being adopted.
She was scared to break down the news to her husband, but eventually she did, and was glad to hear that he was on board with the adoption plan.
“We must have seen thousand of profiles, before we picked Ruslam. We realised at once, that that was our kid.”
Rustam was born with a huge number of malformations. His mother abandoned him, as soon as she saw him. Even though, she was the only one to be blamed for this. Unhealthy lifestyle she was leading spoiled al the chances for a normal and healthy life for the boy.
The boy had congenital facial features, he could not eat on his own, and even though the doctors did everything possible to restore the boy’s face, he had to be fed through a tube. In addition, Rustam did not speak at all and lagged behind in development. A child was also born with one leg.
Nicky admitted, that when she saw the child for the first time, she was not afraid. She immediately began to think about how she and her husband could help him.
“Only for a second, the thought “What have we done?” flashed through, and then I began to think rational again– after all, so much had to be done…” Nicky said.
Exactly one year has passed since the adoption. Step by step new parents taught their son to live a normal life: like to walk on crutches, and then on a prosthesis, to speak. The child did a lot of work with a speech therapist, and now others may understand his speech very well.
