Becoming a mother has always been one of my greatest dreams. To take care of and love a small child who needs love and care.
Whether it is my biological child doesn’t matter to me; I’m sure that no matter what, I will love the child above all else and do everything for him or her to be happy.
But while some dream of having a child to take love and shelter, there are others who are blessed with a child they can’t take care of.
Primrose was born a few years ago in China. But she did not look like most other newborns. Her eyes looked like they were made of silver — and she was completely blind.
The girl’s biological parents didn’t know what to do and left their daughter in an orphanage when she was only a few days old.
Day by day, Primrose waited for a new family to take care of her, but nobody wanted her.
Eryn and Chris Austin live in the small city of Braselton, Georgia. Until a couple of years ago, they believed their lives were perfect. With two wonderful children, they could not wish for more of their lives.
But one day as Eryn was browsing on Facebook, she saw a picture of Primrose.
When she saw the picture, it was like something happened inside her and she knew exactly what she needed to do, writes mummypages.co.uk.
Eryn and Chris would adopt Primrose.
The process of bringing Primrose home began in January 2016. Eventually Primrose was brought to her new family in the United States.
The couple later shared a video about their experience.
“There’s nothing scary about blindness,” father Chris says in the video. “There’s nothing to apologize about. When people hear that she’s blind, they often say ‘I’m so sorry to hear that’. And I say: “Why?”
“When I saw the picture on Facebook… I don’t understand why, I don’t have any explanation. But when I look at her eyes I see that’s everything about her that brought us together,” says mom Eryn.
“When it comes to adoption, there’s something that pulls on the heart strings that is really hard to explain,” Chris says. “Some people can explain it spiritually and say that God is telling them that this is their daughter or their son. Some people would just have this gut feeling that they’re theirs. We knew from the point that we saw her picture that she wanted her and that she was our daughter.”
