Life can turn up and down when you least expect it. That’s what John had to learn by himself, whose life took an unexpected turn when he was already around 70 years old. His daughter had a very negative and self-destructive lifestyle, and that was taking a toll on her young son’s life. John thought that eventually, she would come around and that having a child of her own would give her the motivation to settle down.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case, and before she had any other chance of neglecting her child, John took him in to raise him himself. John had known he would eventually develop a deep connection with his grandson since they first met, but he didn’t think he would be taking care of a child again, after reaching his elder age. His wife had already passed away, he hadn’t retired, and to top it all, Child Services wasn’t too happy about him winning custody of the little boy.
But he did not give up; he took responsibility, and thanks to that, his life changed forever. Now, at 80 years old, he just wants to live long enough to see his grandson make his own life. Don’t miss this heartwarming story, featured in the video just below!
