Nicky had a great family – a loving husband and a wonderful daughter from her first marriage.
But the woman did not leave the thought that had firmly settled in her head since childhood. Nicky dreamed of adopting a child and giving him a real family, love, and care.
Nicky’s husband supported her, and they both came to the conclusion that they would take the child from the orphanage. They went through a lot of profiles, but settled on a boy who had no chance of being adopted.
Rustam was born with a huge number of malformations. And seeing such a son, his mother abandoned him. She herself was to blame for this, because throughout her pregnancy she led an unhealthy lifestyle.
The boy had congenital facial features, he could not eat on his own, so he was fed through a tube. In addition, Rustam did not speak at all and lagged behind in development.
A child was born with one leg. Doctors did everything possible to restore the boy’s face.
Nicky admitted that when she saw the child for the first time, she was not afraid. She immediately began to think about how she and her husband could help him.
“For a second, the thought “What have we done?” flashed through, and then again I began to think practically – after all, so much had to be done…” Nicky said.
Exactly one year has passed since the adoption. Parents taught their son to first walk on crutches, and then on a prosthesis. The child does a lot of work with a speech therapist, and now others may well understand his speech.
Nicky says that at first, the people around and the children were wary of Rustam and laughed at him. They were afraid to play with him on the same playground and shunned the unusual boy.
At some point, Nicky decided to create an account on Instagram and tell the world about her son.
She began to upload his photos and share interesting moments from 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 programs.
Nicky teaches her son not to be ashamed of his appearance and tries to explain to him that the main thing in a person is the soul.
Rustam has a lot of things ahead, but his loving family will always be there and will always support him.
“He is our happiness,” says Nicky about her beloved boy.
