This young woman named Nicky thought she was really lucky in life, because she had a loving husband and a lovely daughter.
Although the girl was born from her first marriage, her second husband, being a good-hearted man, accepted the child and loved her as his own daughter.
But Nicky had a childhood dream: to adopt a child when she grew up.
The young girl wanted to help someone who had no chance of being adopted.
She was afraid to break the news to her husband, but eventually she did and was happy to hear that he was on board with the adoption plan.
And the couple began to look for a little one.
“We must have seen thousands of profiles before choosing Ruslam. We realized right away that it was our child.”
Rustam was born with a few malformations. His mother had abandoned him as soon as she saw him.
The boy had a congenital facial defect, he couldn’t eat on his own, and even though doctors did everything they could to restore the boy’s face, he had to be fed through a tube.
In addition, Rustam could not speak and had a developmental delay. The child was also born with one leg.
A year has passed since the adoption. Gradually, the new parents taught their son to live normally: how to walk with crutches, then on a prosthesis.
And to speak, the child worked a lot with a speech therapist, and now his speech is quite understandable.
At first the children made fun of Rustam. They were afraid to play with him and avoided the unusual boy.
Nicky decided to create an account on Instagram and tell the world about her son.
She started sharing her photos and posting the interesting moments of their lives.
Rustam’s page quickly became popular.
The media became interested in the boy’s story and Nicky and his son began to be invited to various television shows.
Thus, public opinion about the boy has changed.
Nicky taught her son not to be ashamed of his appearance, and she tried to explain to him that the main thing in a person is the soul.
Now Rustam has a loving family who will always support him.
