A friend in my painting class told me a rather strange story about her little grandson. Having a grandson is nothing special but in this case it is.
Jeanine has 3 children one girl and two boys. They are all grown up and out of the house. Her daughter is married and wanted badly a baby since several years unfortunately without any success. Then came the confirmation of the doctor, she can't have any children. A catastrophe for her.
One of her sons was in a relationship but they had no intention to have a baby yet. The other was just 21 and had a girlfriend of 17. And as it happens, those who don't want children they get them without any problems, and sometimes very quick.
This happened to the 21 year old boy Philip and his 17 year old girlfriend Lisa. She got pregnant ! A catastrophe, both far too young and both studying. There was only one solution ... an abortion.
When Jeanine heard about the pregnancy of Lisa, she had the best idea of her life. She invited the girl and talked to her and asked her if she would agree to have the baby. First the girl was very reluctant to the idea, and her son too, but there was the sister who couldn't have children and she was ready, and eager to adopt her brother's child together with her husband and raise it as their own.
After some hesitation, finally Lisa agreed, and after 9 months she gave birth to a healthy little boy. Immediately after the birth she gave it to Philip's sister who from birth on now had a little boy. She and her husband were so happy and of course my friend too. Not only she had a healthy grandson but it was also her own blood.
Today they all live in harmony. The biological mother has disappeared shortly after the birth. The little boy is meanwhile 4 and happy with his parents. The biological father considers him like a nephew and behaves like an uncle.
A strange story but with a very happy end !
