Gift of love
It happened some time ago. I don’t know, why I thought about it right now. Maybe it’s “the proper time” to share that story.
Last eight years I was juror in court. Four years in criminal court, next four in family court. I didn’t apply for the next cadence. I was tired from watching all those mischievous people hurting own kids. I couldn’t sleep at nights. But time to time there were cases, thanks which I was getting back my faith in goodness of human nature. The story will be about one of those cases.
There was the young couple. They decided to adopt some child. They went through all process, qualification, the course for candidates for substitute parents, and they took new-born child from the hospital, whose mother decided to leave her (it was the girl). And finally they went to the court to become parents in law.
It was really pleasant to watch those young people happiness. Woman couldn’t have kids. Mean if she tried some treatment, she could have some own child, but her husband didn’t bother her with that idea. He loved her so much, that he cared for her more, than for having his own child. He loved her since childhood. He said: “I knew since childhood, that she’ll be my wife. “
Judge had to ask, why they decided to adopt a child, and was it full conscious decision? It was beautiful, what that young woman said: “When I was a child I decided, that if I have such possibility, I’ll adopt some child. My friend was taken to the Orphans House. Children shouldn’t live in such places. “
When judge asked, what will happen, if they get their own child. They both said the same: “That little girl is our child. She will be always our first child.”
Judge, me, and second juror, we all had wet eyes. All that was so beautiful.
After judge announced, that they are full parents now, they were so happy. Such moments are worth living. Not every day we can watch so real and beautiful love.
