__________________________________________________________________________


"I’ve chosen him, Father", Rebecca stood near the fourth cradle in the row.

" Little John? Are you sure ? I hope you know his problems", Fr.Patrick said as he caught Rebecca’s
  eyes.

 " Yes. I’m absolutely sure, Father", she was firm .

 " God bless your kindness! Please come down tomorrow for the formalities", Fr.Patrick spoke in a 
   relieved voice.

   Rebecca thanked him and walked out of the adoption centre.

   Fr.Patrick looked at little John, the autistic child ,who slept on, unaware that he had found a new 
   home and family.

   "He’s the lucky one", he thought, "to have her for a mother."
