She told him he no longer had to worry, because the doctors told her that their son had passed away when he heard the news, he simply said they had to move on and told her. He would come back to pick her up from the hospital. However, she told him she was already at home waiting for him. The young man left the bar got into his car and drove home as fast as he could. When he’s saw his wife, she looked like she hadn’t just returned from childbirth.
The duo continued their lives as if their baby boy had never existed. Robert never visited the hospital to confirm if his son had truly passed away. What he never knew was that his wife had abandoned their innocent child and left the hospital without a medical discharge, while Lucy and her husband started a new life, their little baby boy remained in the hospital where he was receiving treatment, although he received love and care From the nurses there he was alone most of the time the hospital had already called child services to come pick up. However, just before they arrived a woman who came for a medical check-up heard about the boy’s plight and made her intentions clear that she would like to adopt him. She approached the chief physician with her husband and inquired about the baby’s family.
When the doctors told her the baby, boy’s sad story, she couldn’t hold back her tears. The kind couple Emily and Ryan Taylor were very rich and influential in the city. They started the adoption process the day after he was picked up by the child services. Although it took several weeks, the adoption process was eventually completed and they named the little boy, Oliver Emily and her husband showered them with loving care. Then they hired a nanny to look after him when they were not around when the boy was fully stable.
They took him and bought him. Many need things for him. People who knew the wealthy couple were shocked to see that their son had Down syndrome. However, no one dared to say anything to them because of their High status. A few days later, lovely images of Oliver and his foster parents felt several newspapers and social media platforms across the city.
The pictures captured how well the boy was doing with the rich couple that same morning, his biological parents, Lucy and Robert were having breakfast in their living room. At that moment, their maid dropped a pair of newspapers on their table like every other day. Lucy picked one of them and started going to the news after flipping. Through some pages, her face became pale when she saw the photos of the wealthy couple’s son.

When Robert returned from work that evening, he was surprised to see his wife in a sad mood, so he confronted her and asked her to tell him what was wrong in between tears. He said, I think the son of the wealthy couple we saw in the newspaper this morning is our child Robert, who was now confused, jumped out of the bed and said: how is that even possible if our son died when he was born, Lucy knew she could? No longer hide the truth, so she told her husband. What truly happened?
I’M sorry, but our son did not die. I abandoned him at the hospital and left with no one noticing I didn’t want to lose you that’s why I lied.

I will never forgive you for what you did. Don’T look for me because I’m leaving you just the way you left our child, he uttered those harsh words and left the house, forgetting that he was the first person to reject their baby boy.
