A grocery store owner becomes suspicious of a well-dressed girl who comes every day to her store to collect leftovers and decides to follow her. What she discovers along the way breaks her heart kimberly cook was busy restocking her grocery store. One morning when her gaze was drawn to a little girl for the first time every day, she’d be there at the same time collecting leftovers from the charity section outside the store, a bin where people frequently left food packets for the homeless and would run away after Filling a large bag with leftovers kimberly thought the girl frequented there with someone, but she soon realized she was always alone. Furthermore, the five-year-old was well dressed and did not appear like someone who’d be eating leftovers, so she decided to approach her one day, hello there. My name is kimberly.
I notice you come here frequently. What’S your name, the little girl looked terrified. Then she asked. May i take some food from here please, of course you can sweetie, but i was just before kimberly could finish her sentence. The little girl turned away from her and began filling the bag.
You know, if you need any help, i could help. You are you alone at home. Are your parents sick, but the little girl ignored her as if she hadn’t heard her sorry, i have to go. She said then ran away with her bag. Full of food packets kimberly had an unsettling feeling that something wasn’t right so the next day she waited for the girl to arrive a few minutes later.
She noticed she was at the bin again collecting leftovers kimberly waited for her to finish collecting food and when she saw the girl leave, she asked her store manager to look after the store and quietly followed the girl in her car at a safe distance. So she wouldn’t notice her. She noticed her happily strolling through the street swinging the bag of food and turning into an alley kimberly waited for her to reach the end of the alley before driving into it. When she got to the end, she noticed the girl taking another turn this time in a narrower alley where her car wouldn’t fit. She got down from her car and began to follow the girl on foot.
She noticed they were in a desolate area with nothing but dark dingy old houses that hadn’t been repaired in months, if not years, the little girl walked to the far end of the neighborhood until she came to a crop-filled field. She crossed the field and then came to a halt at an abandoned garage. What the hell! Why would a young girl like her come all the way here kimberly wondered. Suddenly she saw the garage door open and two figures emerged from the inside.
One was a boy who appeared to be even younger than the girl, and the other was a small dog that didn’t appear in good health. Kimberly approached the garage to speak with the children, but when the girl turned around and saw her, she grabbed the little boy and they dashed inside pulling down the shutter after i’m not here to hurt you i’m here to help you kimberly called out. That’S why i’m waiting for you to come out? I can come inside if i want, but i don’t want to scare you. Okay, then the little girl spoke up.
No we’re not coming out you’ll call the police. Please go. Police kimberly was puzzled. No, i won’t. I promise: will you come out now?
There was a brief moment of silence before the girl emerged, we’re the little boy and the dog kimberly asked her. The little girl began to tear up. Please don’t take them away from me. I’M jason’s, big sister. My mommy told me to look after him.
My name is stacy. We also have a dog. His name is timmy, please don’t cry stacy i’ll help. You and your brother where’s, your mom, mommy and daddy went to the angel. She said as she wiped her tears.
So we ran away from home and came here mrs green said that, because mommy and daddy died in a fire, the police will get us and send us to a new place. But i don’t want that. A sharp pain ran through kimberly hearing the little girl talk about the death of her parents stacey. When did that happen, and how long have you been living here? She asked gently: it happened last week we were playing outside and there was a fire in our house.
Mommy and daddy were taken to the hospital, but they never came back kimberly just couldn’t help but feel for the poor girl and her brother listen stacy. You can come with me. I promise i won’t call the police i’ll, take care of you and jacob and make sure you’re never separated and let’s take timmy to a vet. Okay, he looks sick, really stacey’s eyes widened. Do you promise jacob and timmy will live with me?
I promise you stacy. Come let’s go you’ll come with me right. The little girl nodded then asked her brother and the dog to come out of the garage kimberly brought them home, fed them then took timmy to the veterinarian. When her husband, josh returned home, she told him what happened and he suggested they call the cops darling. How can you just bring them here?
I know you feel bad for them, but we can’t just keep them what, if the cops are on the lookout for them? I understand josh, but we can talk to sandra we’re planning on adopting anyway. So why not just take these two kids in please sandra’s a social worker, and she can help us with this, and we can inform the cops, but we’ll have to do so in secret because you know how terrified the kids are of them. Alright, then, but we’re going to call the cops and sandra first thing. The next morning, josh and kimberly spoke with sandra a close friend of the couple.
Since they became foster parents and with her assistance they were able to keep the children with them for fostering. Fortunately, she was able to persuade the cops that there would be no problem and they agreed one month later, josh and kimberly decided to officially adopt the children and began the paperwork. The process took some time, but jacob and stacy were finally theirs. Josh and sandra who couldn’t have children were overjoyed to have two kids in a cute doggo.
