His mother abandoned him because he was sick without imagining who would adopt him. She was completely shocked. German and Lizzie were a fairly young married couple. They were of Mexican origin. They had four sons.
Life, the truth is, was very difficult for them, and many times they even had to ask the state for help. They always went to churches to donate food and use clothing in good condition so that they could feed and clothe their children. The children averaged between five and eleven years of age.
These young parents no longer wanted to have more children, but sadly, they were in a religion that forbade them to use birth control. And the members of the religion told them, brothers, you have to accept all the children that God wants you to give.
This has to be like this, you know. And if that baby gets sick, you know what to do. So, dear friend, sit back and join me in learning about this beautiful story. Lizzie was very sad because she had nausea, vomiting, dizziness. Yes, the symptoms of a pregnancy.
She was also quite worried because she didn’t know how she was going to support the son who was on the way. In addition to this, the doctor had told her that if she became pregnant for the fifth time, the chances were high that the child would have some deformity. Lizzie was crying that day, not knowing at all what she had to do.
In addition, the salary that she had working and cleaning was not enough for her husband was a simple construction worker who had temporary jobs. That is, he didn’t have a fixed income that they could count on every month, even though she didn’t lose faith and continue to carry out her daily tasks with her other children and the responsibilities of her work.
Meanwhile, German didn’t know what to do. He didn’t know whether to have any intimacy with his wife because he knew that if they had something, she could get pregnant again. In this way, time passed and Lizzie gave birth to a beautiful baby named Matteo. The baby was so beautiful that everyone talked about him in the hospital. He only cried for the basics.
The rest of the time he looked at everything around him until the first check up over, Lizzie would tell the doctor, Excuse me. Excuse me, doctor. Do you know why my son is always looking at everything? The doctor very surprised. Old Lizzie, my lady, don’t you know?
No, let me explain. Well, I want to tell you that the truth is, I’m sorry, but your son is blind. That’s why he’s trying to see. But the truth is, he can’t. I’m sorry.
Lizzie was very sad. She went to her house and would talk to her husband, telling him what was happening with that baby. German, instead of giving his wife the necessary strength, only leaned over to say, now what are we going to do? Hey, Lizzie, I told you. I don’t have a job.
And this whole situation not being intimate because of the relationship we’re in. It’s ending our lives. Don’t you realize the suffering? I’m carrying Lizzie and German for two weeks. Everything was completely in discussion.
Day and night were those fights that didn’t stop in that home. Until one day, that young mother decided to go out with her youngest children to the park for a walk. Since her husband had told her the day before. Do you know that we have to get rid of this baby? Yes, we have to get rid of Matteo.
He is a month old. Go to the park and leave it lying there, please. But the truth is that we have to get rid of it. The young mother listened, went to the park, and while her two youngest children played, took the baby out of the car. And slowly, without people passing by, put little Mateo in a place where there was sort of a lot of dirt.
And she walked little by little with her children. They came and like this, they were like, hey, mom, our brother is staying, mom. Lizzie, with remorse, followed her path and went to her modest little house, telling German, I did what you wanted. 2 hours passed and apparently the baby was asleep because he wasn’t crying. It was already getting dark.
And at that moment, the doctor who attended the delivery of that woman who seen the baby said, hey, what’s with this child? The doctor’s name was Juan, who upon seeing the baby, immediately carried him and waited for someone to come and pick him up or ask for news about him. But as the hours passed and minutes passed, no one came. He went with him to his house, saying to himself, Tomorrow I will go to see who claims this creature. Dr.
Wan came every day for two weeks and seeing that absolutely no one claimed the child, over the course, he grew fond of the little boy and decided to adopt him. Of course, Juan. The doctor did the necessary paperwork with the authorities and signed the little baby as his. Juan would take the baby to check up. Everything seemed fine, but he’d surprised that the little one was blind.
At that moment, his head began to spin and he remembered that recently he had a baby that was taken care of. And he remembered that it was Lizzie who had carried it. The doctor took Lizzie’s background information where she lived in Australia phone, and when he arrived at her house, he was surprised that no one lived there alone. A man came out saying, hey, those starving people have nowhere to drop dead. That’s why I kicked them out from their rented house.
Hearing these words, Juan returned to his house with that baby. And he couldn’t imagine how a woman could unscrupulously abandon a child on a piece of land inside an almost completely abandoned park. Juan was very happy to take care of little Mateo because he had recently lost his almost one year old baby and his relationship with his ex wife had ended. Of course, he never changed his name because he knew his name. The years went by and the doctor fell in love with a girl named Alura who upon meeting little Mateo, realized that he was a very beautiful little boy.
She was a very cute child and she was always there for him. It would be time for Matteo’s operation. He had already turned five years old and his father, Juan would tell him, Son, it’s time for you to recover your sight. I’m going to place all my faith in God because I know that he has something very special prepared for each and every one of us. Especially for you, my little Mateo.
Everything will be fine, I promise. With those words he referred to his son. The operation was completely successful and Matteo, seeing his father and Allura, hugged them very strongly. He at that moment felt the love that they had provided him for so long and that were always there unconditionally until that special moment in which he was finally able to open his eyes and see the light of day. Dr.
Juan and Allora would have a little daughter who would be Matteo’s partner and they would be perfect for the family. Not even they no longer thought about that mother who abandoned little Matteo. Time passed and Matteo became an excellent student. So much so that he finished his medical degree and began his professional internship at his father’s clinic. And he was very excited.
But he would also tell him the truth that he was adopted. It was a sad moment for him, but the truth is that over time he knew how to assimilate it. Well, it’s a sudden news that’s not assimilated overnight. But Allora and Juan knew they had to say it. Matthew couldn’t believe it.
It was a bucket of cold water. But with the help of a therapist, everything was able to move forward, knowing that this was never going to change the love he felt towards his parents. And also the great lobby felt for his sister. And he just wanted to ignore that pain of knowing the great truth. After a few months as a doctor, Matteo would arrive at a hospital and he would also find himself in that same place with a very tired old lady.
It was clear that life had been very hard on her. She was very sick and was only accompanied by a young woman who was worried. They just assigned it to Matteo so that he could see the case of the older woman. Mateo immediately felt an instant connection with that old lady. But he also knew that it was not very good to get attached to patients because he had to be professional.
The old lady could not stop seeing the young doctor that he always treated her with great affection. Thank you, Doctor, for the great treatment you give me. The truth is that I feel very special. I feel the human warmth that you give off every time you’re in front of me. Many sleepless nights Matteo spent tending to her and keeping her company so that he treated the grandmother in the hospital in the best way.
And each of those nights the old woman told him various anecdotes from her life. The boy was feeling that he was getting very involved in the life of the old lady’s family, but he didn’t know how to get away either, in this way. A month passed and that old woman only said, hey, you know that I feel that it’s time to tell you something very intimate because life, little by little I feel that it’s running out and I have to do this before to leave for the other world. I abandoned my son in a park, and the truth is, you don’t know the pain it causes me to remember him. I’m very sorry because he was the last of my children and I abandoned him because he was blind.
He’s called Matteo the grandma said. When Matteo heard that, the old woman said he couldn’t believe it because everything coincided with what his parents told him. Everything fit perfectly and how they found him. With a mask and teary eyes, he told her, hey, Mother, it’s me. I’m Matteo.
My father had the courage and told me that he found me in an abandoned park when I was about a month old born. The grandmother at that moment coughed very hard and very excited. Giving her last breath, she managed to say, Son, forgive me. You don’t know how sorry I am for that bad decision I made. But your father and I were having a very difficult time.
But it was the best decision because if you had been with us, nothing good would have happened. That’s the good part, the one that gives me comfort to somehow assimilate all the damage I did. From what I see, your parents made you a good man. I congratulate you. You’re a professional, you’re a great doctor.
Matteo told her that it was true that his parents gave him a very good lifestyle. He liked his profession. He even had a girlfriend. Miss Lizzie, very tired, felt happy and free of weight, and she only managed to say to Matteo, Forgive me, son, please forgive me. He looked at her with tears in his eyes and gave her a tender kiss on her forehead.
And little by little he saw how she closed her eyes until eternity. Dear friends, we’ve reached the end of the story. So tell me, is what Matteo did right in the end. In his heart, he didn’t hold a grudge. He continued with his profession, and before his biological mother died, he was able to forgive her and face that woman who gave him life.
