“The man found an abandoned baby on a bench. And after 10 years, something remarkable awaited him.”

There has been a story circulating online for a while that may seem unbelievable to many, but in reality, life can spin such plots that any director would envy. Watch until the end; it will be interesting. Ivan was returning from a night shift, utterly exhausted.
He longed to come home, stretch out on the bed, and fall into a deep sleep. His job was tough, and after being released from prison, there were no options other than working at the mine. He was luckier than most – he got a room in a dormitory with other shift workers. Given his situation, a rented apartment was out of the question, and all he could hope for was a trailer near his workplace.

To cut through the shortcut, he walked through the park, hoping to reach his entrance faster. Ahead, on a bench, he noticed a big bundle. Approaching it, Ivan was stunned. Wrapped in some fabric or a small blanket lay a baby in front of him. Ivan stood there in deep shock. His body begged for sleep, but his soul shuddered at the thought that perhaps this child had been lying in the park for hours, late in the autumn. Caution warned him not to get involved in this situation, especially with his criminal record. Finally, the young man gathered his courage.

Carrying the little child to his dormitory with 15 other men was unthinkable. So, he hugged the baby close and headed towards a two-story building he often passed by. It was a children’s home. Ivan explained the situation. The baby was a girl. The foster sister said, “There are no notes from the mother.
Let’s name her Irina Ivanovna.” Ivan smiled, “Well, let it be so.” This event made him ponder about his life. He had no family left, but he longed for warmth and comfort. Ivan often remembered his foundling and even called the children’s home from time to time. When Irina grew up, he started visiting her with gifts.

Each visit, the little girl handed him drawings where they were together as a family – with a mom and dad. A new employee at the children’s home, Svitlana, noticed Ivan’s good relationship with the girl. She had grown up in this institution herself and understood how important a family was for a child. She also liked Ivan; it turned out he had been visiting Irina for ten years! Irina had been eagerly awaiting the day when her dad would take her home. Ivan had been paying off a mortgage for a flat; thankfully, his earnings as a miner were higher than those of a day laborer. But the lack of a family made his situation hopeless.

Svitlana and Ivan had a heartfelt conversation. They decided that their relationship was strong enough to officially register their status and fulfill Irina’s dream. They went through all the legal procedures, prepared a room for the girl, and visited the children’s home together. The girl leaped into Ivan’s arms, then hugged Svitlana. She noticed that today her dad was beaming with joy. He knelt down in front of his daughter and said softly, “Irina, pack your things. You’re going home! And we’re waiting for you.”
