Nicky had a sizable family, consisting of a loving husband and a wonderful daughter from her first marriage. However, a childhood dream had always lingered in her mind. She aspired to adopt a child and provide them with a genuine family filled with love and care.
Her husband fully supported her, and together they decided to adopt a child from an orphanage. After reviewing numerous profiles, they chose a little boy who had sadly been overlooked by potential adoptive parents.
Rustam was born with a multitude of deformities, and his own mother had abandoned him, blaming herself for her unhealthy lifestyle during pregnancy. He had congenital facial abnormalities and was unable to eat independently, requiring feeding through a tube. Additionally, Rustam faced speech challenges and developmental delays, having been born with only one leg.
Dedicated medical professionals did their utmost to improve Rustam’s facial features. When Nicky first saw the child, she wasn’t frightened; instead, she immediately focused on how she and her husband could provide him with the help and care he needed.
One year passed since Rustam’s adoption. His parents diligently worked with him, helping him learn to walk with crutches and later with a prosthesis. They also engaged a speech therapist, enabling Rustam to communicate effectively.
Initially, people, especially children, were cautious around Rustam and would often mock him due to his unique appearance. Many were hesitant to play with him on the playground and avoided the boy altogether. Nicky decided to create an Instagram account to share Rustam’s story with the world. Through photos and shared moments, Rustam’s page quickly gained popularity.
The media became intrigued by Rustam’s story, resulting in invitations to various TV programs for Nicky and her son. Nicky instilled in Rustam the importance of not feeling ashamed of his appearance and emphasized that a person’s soul holds the greatest significance.
Rustam faces many challenges ahead, but he has the unwavering support of his loving family. As Nicky aptly puts it, “He is our happiness,” describing her beloved son.
