In China, a girl named Primrose was born, and from birth, she was different from other newborns.
The fact is that her eyes were of such a color, as if they were pure silver. The baby was completely blind; she suffered from congenital glaucoma.
This is a quite rare condition (1 in 30,000 newborns) that can lead to severe and permanent vision loss.
Immediately at the maternity hospital, the mother wrote a refusal on her part, and after a few days, the baby went to the shelter.
Like all children, Primrose waited every day for someone who could come and take her, giving her genuine parental attention, love, and warmth.
But days, months, and years passed, and no miracle occurred…
A married couple from the city of Braselton, in the state of Georgia, Erin and Chris Austin had a complete family. They had their own house and two charming children—what else do you need to be happy?
But one day, the woman was scrolling through her Facebook feed; she suddenly saw a photo of Primrose…
As Erin later said, “When I saw the baby’s photo, I felt something turn inside me. I suddenly realized clearly—this is my child…”
The Austins decided to adopt a daughter.
The adoption process took several months, and Primrose came to the United States, to her large and loving family.
Of course, it wasn’t all that simple; the couple had to traverse the United States, Georgia, and China. They went through the nine circles of bureaucratic hell, but they have no regrets.
A year later, the couple decided to share their feelings after adopting the baby: “There’s nothing wrong with her being blind,” says her adoptive father, Chris.
“And don’t pity us. When people find out she’s blind, they often say, ‘I’m sorry.’ And I respond, ‘Why?'”
“When it comes to adoption, something happens in the soul that is hard to explain,” says Chris.
“Some people call it a sign from above, where the Lord himself tells them that it’s their daughter or son. And some rely on intuition. When we saw her photo, we immediately knew we wanted to adopt her because she is our daughter.”
