Everyone simply wishes to be loved and appreciated.
Dominique and Kevin Gill decided in 2018 to open their modest house in Nashville, Tennessee, to a youngster called Andrew. When they heard the child’s story, their hearts ached.
He has been in captivity since he was six years old, according to his documentation. At this point, his parents no longer had any legal rights, and his four siblings were all adopted right away, as Dominique explained in her interview.
This was a horrific event for a youngster his age. Little Andrew became increasingly isolated from the people around him. The Gills wanted to foster him and teach Andrew what it was like to belong.
“During his first week with us, he sat in his room with the door shut, looking at old photographs.” “He didn’t want to communicate,” Andrew’s foster parents said in an interview.
A kid should grow up in a loving, respectful, and caring family. Unfortunately, this is not the reality that most of us are familiar with. Andrew is just one example of a youngster who wants to be part of a family that he can call his own.
The grief grows as you wait for someone to accept or adopt you. Expectations and heartache frequently make these youngsters feel unwanted. That is why some of them choose to appear harsh, unpleasant, and reclusive.
It’s how they defend themselves from more harm.
Andrew was no exception. Dominique mentioned that Andrew was frequently misbehaving and reclusive. If someone tried to approach him, he would remain in his room and yell.
The Gills refused to give up on Andrew. They knew he was going through something, and they wanted him to know that there are still individuals who want to show him love.
Dominique’s son, Joc, had no feelings for Andrew when he arrived at their house. That is until they discovered how much they have in common. They both chose to play video games one day, and then they discovered that they both liked Pop-Tarts, which marked the beginning of a wonderful friendship.
Andrew had not only found his forever home but also happiness, love, and the best buddy.
“This is my brother, Joc,” Andrew stated, and “This is my brother, Joc,” Joc replied, concluding the lovely film.
Andrew’s tale shows us that love is powerful and that everyone deserves to be welcomed and cherished.
