Henry’s life had been a difficult one. As a widower with four children, he worked tirelessly as a janitor at the airport just to make ends meet. Despite his best efforts, money was often tight, and Henry struggled to provide for his family.
Thankfully, his coworkers were kind-hearted people who generously donated their children’s old clothes and toys to Henry’s children. They also sent food from time to time to ensure that the family never went hungry. Though Henry refused to accept any money from his colleagues, they found other ways to assist him.
One day, while sweeping the runway, Henry stumbled upon an abandoned stroller. Curious, he inspected it and found a two-year-old girl sleeping inside. Shocked and alarmed, he quickly pushed the stroller towards the security office where the authorities were alerted. Meanwhile, Henry returned to work, but the little girl suddenly woke up and began to cry.
Overcome with compassion, Henry picked her up and comforted her. As the girl continued to look for her mother, Henry’s heart ached for her. When the police arrived, they made an announcement about the lost girl, but no one came forward to claim her. With no one else to care for her, Henry made a life-changing decision to take care of her himself.
He explained to the police that he had four children of his own and that he would be willing to take care of the girl. Although the police were initially hesitant, they ultimately allowed him to take her home for the night. The following day, social services would pick her up. However, Henry had already grown attached to the little girl, and he knew that he couldn’t bear to part with her.
When social services arrived the next day, the social worker was skeptical of allowing Henry to keep the girl. Nevertheless, Henry was determined to take care of her and did everything necessary to convince them to let him keep her. He obtained adoptive parent status and underwent a background check, which eventually allowed him to adopt her legally.
Months passed, and the police investigation yielded no results. The little girl’s mother was never found, and Henry officially adopted her. He named her Blessie because he considered her a blessing. He and his children loved and cared for her as their own, and she quickly adapted to her new family.
Henry’s life began to improve as well. His supervisor increased his salary, and he was eventually offered a better job with a higher salary. However, sixteen years after Blessie’s adoption, an unexpected visitor arrived on her 18th birthday.
Ayleen Morales, a wealthy woman and Blessie’s birth mother, showed up at Henry’s doorstep, claiming she had come to take Blessie back with her. Ayleen had left Blessie years ago and had never been in her life since. Her only interest in seeing Blessie was that she had discovered that her late husband had left their daughter a huge fortune.
Henry was horrified at the thought of losing Blessie after so many years of raising her as his own. Ayleen even suggested that they make a deal, where Henry would keep Blessie while she kept the money. Blessie was equally appalled by her mother’s greed and refused to give up her inheritance.
The truth about Blessie’s father’s fortune and Ayleen’s motives for marrying him soon came to light. It became evident that Ayleen had only wanted the money and had never cared about her daughter. Despite the challenges that came with the unexpected visit, Blessie remained strong and refused to let her mother’s greed tear her family apart.
In the end, Blessie received her inheritance and continued to live with Henry and her siblings. Her bond with Henry had grown stronger through the years, and she was grateful for the loving family that had taken her.
