An abandoned blind baby he finds close to a garbage is taken in by a trashman who is struggling to raise his twin kids alone. He unintentionally learns the boy’s pastime one day and assists him in laying the foundation for his eventual multimillion-dollar enterprise.
Bob was about to praise fate for providing him with such a great wife and two adorable children when fate dealt him a severe blow. After nine years of marriage to his wife Sarah, the 41-year-old was left to raise their identical twin daughters Kara and Christie by himself.
Bob was forced to care for them alone after Sarah revealed her lengthy liaison with another guy. However, it wasn’t all.
“Is their father your “other man”? How could you, Sarah, treat me like this? Tell the truth, please.” Sarah’s response to Bob’s argument broke him.
She acknowledged that Sarah’s affair partner’s children were not Kara and Christie. Two years after she married Bob, she had an affair and gave birth to them with another guy.
When Bob questioned her about it, she responded: “Because you work in a dumpster and I’m embarrassed to announce that you’re my spouse. You cannot afford the lavish lifestyle I desire.”
On his seventh birthday, Bob gifted Sam a book. Daddy, what is this? Sam enquired. “To touch feels so odd.”
Bob was broken. He thought he’d been living a wonderful life with Sarah, but it took him nine long years to understand his wife, who he worshipped and loved, was not pleased with him. Bob felt he could not live without his daughters even if he could never again view them the same way.
On the day of their divorce, he asked Sarah, “Are you taking the kids with you?”
“Why would I take the kids with me when I’m going to marry someone else? Because their biological father passed away many years ago, you are free to raise them whatever you like “She spoke without holding back. Bob never saw her again after she left.
Bob managed to raise his girls despite his inability to accept the fact that his wife had died. He believed he was doing exactly what fate intended.
One day, Bob was collecting trash from a dumpster when he noticed an abandoned infant boy wailing nearby. “A baby?” he exclaimed and approached the young one.
Nobody was present when he turned to glance around. A message that said, “To whoever finds this blind baby, please take care of him,” was inside the child’s carrier, which the man checked as he leaned down.
Bob became alarmed. “How could someone harm an infant like this?” He cradled the infant after picking him up. The infant continued to sob and moved his delicate hands to sense who was holding him. He screamed and kicked.
Before phoning child services, Bob soothed the boy and took him home to offer him some warm milk. He informed the police, “I discovered him by the dumpster.”
After being transferred to the hospital, the baby boy’s blindness was determined to exist. Bob made the decision to adopt the little boy after feeling compassion for him. He reasoned, “I can easily raise him too if I can raise two daughters alone.”
Bob took the infant home and legally adopted him six months later. “He is your young brother, Sam. How do you feel?” He showed his daughters the infant.
Bob was originally skeptical about the hurdles he’d have to tackle. He tried his best to make Sam feel loved because he understood that because of his blindness, Sam would require particular care and attention.
Seven years had passed before Bob learned the boy had a niche.
“And after that, the princess ran away from the tower.” Sam would imagine the lovely princess locked in a massive tower and the dashing prince secretly meeting her every night as Bob read bedtime stories to him. Sam loved to hear these bedtime tales and never went to sleep without one.
Sam received a book from Bob for his seventh birthday. “What is this, daddy?” Sam enquired. “To touch feels so odd.”
“It’s a Braille book. The raised dots must be felt, then slowly followed with your fingers. They’ll assist you in learning to read, “In the ensuing weeks, Bob painstakingly taught Sam how to use the book in response.
Every two months, Bob bought a few Braille books for Sam. Bob would make sacrifices in other areas of his life to pay for them for his son because they were pricey.
After twenty years, Sam was able to read and write with ease. He made the decision to assist the blind and established a modest publishing firm. Bob used the money he had set aside for his daughters’ weddings to provide him with the necessary equipment to get things going.
Sam’s firm gradually began to expand. His newfound success allowed him to better his family’s living situation while still being able to contribute to society.
After three years, Sam was the proprietor of a sizable publishing company that catered to the reading and writing needs of blind people. His company brought in millions of dollars in revenue. He bought a beautiful mansion with his first million and moved in with his adopted parents and sisters.
Despite not being Bob’s real son, Sam did everything in his power to make him proud. He was aware of his adoption and frequently said in interviews: “Parents are not those who give birth to us but those who raise us. Parents of my own didn’t want me. They saw me as a burden. I give thanks to fate for guiding me to a caring father who taught me how to view the world from his perspective. Bob will always be my father. Being his son makes me proud!”
