‘Thank you, Mom & Dad!’ Adopted Girl Tears Up Seeing Her Bed After Being Homeless for Years – Story of the Day

Thank you, Mom & Dad!’ Adopted Girl Tears Up Seeing Her Bed After Being Homeless for Years – Story of the Day

Veronica and Joseph adopted and adored the little girl they found abandoned under a park bridge, but she never spoke a single word to them. However, one night she walked into the couple’s bedroom and cried, “Thank you, Mom & Dad,” startling the couple. The sky was a lovely pink, and Veronica and Joseph were strolling through the park together. After losing their only child to cancer, the couple found spending time in nature therapeutic.

As they approached the bridge in the park, Veronica gently rested her head on Joseph’s shoulder and asked, “Should we try for another child, honey? Maybe that will change things. What do you think?”

Joseph sighed. “We can, man,” he said. “But are you sure about that?” I won’t rush through it. We need to be in the right mental space before we consider this.”

“You’re right,” she said after a short pause, tears welling up in her eyes. “I still miss Sammy… our little boy… How could God be so cruel and take him away?

Veronica was crying into Joseph’s shoulder that day, remembering their late son, when she noticed a pair of eyes staring at them. She quickly noticed a silhouette disappearing under the bridge, but she wasn’t prepared for what happened next…

The girl continued to stare at her but said nothing. “Would you like us to help you with something?” Veronica asked. “My name is Veronica and this is my husband, Joseph.” What is your name?”

The girl didn’t say a word.

Veronica looked at Joseph and sighed. “Can you talk to her? He looks scared.”

Joseph nodded and approached the girl. “Hello, honey,” he said. “Listen, we’re starving, and we wanted to have sandwiches and hot chocolate at that cafe near the park.” Would you like to join us?”

Love is the most powerful medicine, capable of working miracles.

“Yes, honey,” Veronica said, holding out her hand to hold the girl. “Would you like to come with us? It’s okay if you don’t want to talk. We could eat something delicious!”

The girl looked from Veronica to Joseph, then stepped towards Veronica.

“Yes,” Veronica said encouragingly. “You can hold my hand!”

So the girl took a few more steps towards Veronica and finally put her hands in hers. “Wonderful, honey,” Veronica said, smiling gently. “Let’s get you some food!”

Veronica and Joseph took the girl to a cafe and got her sandwiches and a chocolate shake. As she quietly ate her food, everyone around them stared at her strangely because of her unkempt appearance.

So Veronica and Joseph brought the little girl home and gave her Sam’s comfortable bed to sleep in that night. The next morning, they called the police and CPS, but when authorities began questioning the girl, she hid behind Veronica.

“She seems to trust you,” the social worker told Veronica. “Have you thought about feeding her?” We can’t do anything unless she speaks up, and we can say she feels safe here.”

“We haven’t thought about it yet,” Joseph said. “But,” he looked at Veronica and said, “I don’t think we’re ready for that.”

“NOT!” Veronica interrupted him, hugging the girl to her. “We can do that. And we’re certified, because…well…we were thinking about adopting at one point!”

“Great then,” said the worker. “You can hold the girl while we look for her parents or anyone who knows who she is. Good luck!”

Even Veronica couldn’t explain why she felt such a strange connection with the girl and decided to keep her at home.

As time passed, Veronica and Joseph grew to love the girl as their own, and even adopted her because her family could not be found. But there was one problem. The girl simply did not speak. Even when she didn’t like something, she didn’t say anything.

This bothered the couple, so they took her to the doctor, who explained that the girl was traumatized.

“I would describe it as shock,” said the doctor. “Your daughter went through a terrible ordeal, and she still hasn’t fully recovered from it.” While medical science can work wonders, I believe what your daughter needs most at this stage is love and care. As her parents, only you can do that.”

“It’s going to be okay, honey,” Joseph said, comforting her. “I have an idea. I’m not sure if it will make a significant difference, but we can try!

Joseph and Veronica decided to prepare a princess-themed room for their daughter Millie as a surprise. They removed all of Sam’s old things as a sign of their healing from his death, and redid the walls, the bed, the closet, everything!

“Surprise!” the couple exclaimed as they showed Millie’s room.

But Millie didn’t show any excitement and that disappointed them.

“Didn’t you like your room honey?” Veronica asked. “See, it’s all about the princesses! Finally you have your own bed! It’s all yours! Daddy and I know how much you love princesses!”

Milly looked at them, then at the room, but said nothing.

Victoria and Joseph went back to their room dejected.

“I think we should take her to a therapist,” Joseph said. “That would be the best.”

Just then, Millie walked into their bedroom. Joseph and Veronica were shocked to see that she was in tears.

“What’s wrong honey?” Victoria asked. “Are you ok?”

“Thank you… Skye,” she said and Victoria and Joseph were shocked to hear their daughter speak.

“Thanks, Mom and Dad. The bed…princess…I like it!” she continued. “Can you call me Skye?

Joseph and Victoria couldn’t help but cry as they hugged Millie. “We love you, honey,” Joseph added. “Was Skye your previous name?”

The girl shook her head. “I-I met mom and you at the park and the sky was pink. I am Heaven.”

Victoria smiled. “Of course! You’re heaven! No Milli! You’re heaven to us!”

Later that day, Milli/Ski shared her heartbreaking story with Victoria and Joseph. She shared that she and her birth mother were homeless for years, and that after her mother died, she wandered the streets alone and slept under bridges, in alleys, and wherever she could find a place.

The couple was moved to tears when they heard this and held him close. “Heavens,” said Victoria. “I also remember the pink sky that day, honey. I think it was all meant to be.”
