I see you as a mother. I guess you don t mind having a newly adopted son. Mother was laughing and said yes I am happy to call you my son. Since I met you, you change my life and my daughter also. I am really grateful.
The conversation continue, and the mother asked Robert what happen to his family. Robert told her that he was raised in an orphanage. They told me that my mother abandoned me on the step of the orphanage with a memo.

Since then, her life is not been the same.
Robert can not believe it. He decided to get a DNA test. They are a match. Robert was happy to find her mother and her sister. Robert told her mother that blood is thicker than water.
