Unpredictable moments of life

Unpredictable moments of life , story

It was a special day for me as I was going to celebrate my 21st birthday. I  was happy with all the arrangements. Suddenly I saw a paper kept under the beautifully decorated box with the shinning  ribbon flowers.

“It must be a gift from my mom”I  thought .

My eyes sparkled with happiness and eagerly I stepped forward . I looked around to get the clue but there was no one in the room except me. I picked up the paper and started reading.  Suddenly the high  waves of emotions tear me apart . The ship in which I was sailing was not belonging to me anymore.

Dear Andy

We have never imagined our life without you but we can’t be so selfish. We can’t keep the truth hidden from you for long. Twenty years back, on the same day,
we got blessed with a flower though it was not belonging to us.Yes, it was belonging to someone else’s garden.

We started cherishing  every moment of our life seeing it growing. We never had an autumn thereafter. It spreads its fragrance in way that we forgot all our pains.But now,that flower is at his full bloom and free to  choose his way.

Not belonging to us…..these words were echoing in my mind.

The memories of my childhood was  flashing in front of  my eyes. The moments of holding hands of my parents and walking towards the school.

A handmade chocolates made by mom especially for me…

The beautiful card I made for her on mother’s day…

Watching a movie with dad….. Long 21 years My heart was not ready to accept the truth.
At the end ,an address was written

Mr David Brown
Street 2…..

Suddenly I stopped reading….should I read the address futher. Why should I ? I had no courage to read the complete  address nor I wanted to. For me, it was meaningless as the life had been so wonderful through out these years that nothing could replace it. We were standing together as a strong mountain against the hard winds of the life.

It is not important where the  seed has come from,what matter is the place where  it is  growing , the soil which is nourishing it …the air which is helping it to  breathe.

They are the one who gave me  a reason to live and  smile, moments to cherish. I had a final look though I had already taken a decision.

As I  took a turn I felt the two pure souls standing behind me with emptiness in their eyes.

I threw that paper on floor and gave them a warm hug. None of us spoke a word but the vibration of feelings and warmth of the love passed through the three bodies.

  • Do you agree with the decision made by Andy? Or He should have left his foster parents? 
  • One more thing ,suggest an another tittle for this story as per your perspective.

Looking forward to read your comments ……?????

    • A child can become a good human being and can give its positive contribution to the society only if is nurtured with good values, love and care.
      He will never leave if you have bound him with your true love.

      • True… Parents & Teachers plays a very imp role in shaping the mentality of the person… During its formative years he learns how to think, which decides how he will evolve as a person…

  1. As an adopted child, by my father, I have known of my adoption for about thirty years. Never have I had the inclination to seek my biological dad. The man that sacrificed his time, love and energy whilst I grew is the man I know as my dad, and I see no reason other than curiosity to change that. And I think we all know that killed the cat!

  2. This stirred up so many emotions deep and I’m in tears typing this comment on this heartwarming piece of writing! Andy did the right thing I suppose.. home is where happiness is! ?✌

    • Thank you Ben……Surely you will get more in future
      Hope you are enjoying being here and getting ready for your next post

      • Yeah it feels great to be here, reading post and blogs of a well trained pen is an awesome thing to do.
        And for my next post, I still can’t decide what to write? but hopefully I guess I’ll scribble soon.

  3. Amazing and wonderful… Parents can’t be parents only by their biological identity – the significance of the words “Mom” and “Dad” is far more than that. Though the reasons behind leaving Andy by his biological parents are unknown, still – any reason can’t reduce the amount of love and affection by his foster parents.
    So, this decision was absolutely right – because they are the one who caressed and nurtured this young sapling with all their sweats and tears to make their child a big, strong tree. 🙂
    I would have given this piece the title – “Finding Home”

  4. Thanks Nemo for spending your time to read and giving your opinion and I completely agree with you. ☺
    I liked the title given by you.

  5. This is such a good story. And I agree with Andy’s decision. It doesn’t matter who gave birth to you, the one that matters is who raised you and who taught you to be you. But it’s not always too late to give your biological parents a second chance, right?

    Really love this one! Hope to see more from you ?

  6. I think my title would be “Defining family” as this story plays around with the idea of biological but unknown and non-bio. What really makes family? Interesting story, would love to read more

  7. I partially agree with the decision. Stay with your foster parents because those are your real parents. The ones who cannot be replaced in you heart, but I also feel a person owes it to them self just to know who they really are and where they come from. There could be medical histories or certain traits that Andy may be able to better understand after meeting his birth parent. They’ll know things about what is in his blood that his real parents won’t know. Some people don’t care, but that’s what I would do. I think a good name for this story would be “Parental Decisions”
