Woman Kicks Pregnant Daughter Out, Years Later Learns Her Granddaughter Is an Orphan – Story of the Day

A woman who kicked her pregnant daughter out was stunned when she saw a little girl in her classroom several years later. She noticed a birthmark in the neck of the little girl and realized that it was the same as her child’s.

“Get out, and never see me again,” Polly Thomas remembered telling her 17-year-old daughter, Angel, who she caught crying in a corner eight years ago, holding a pregnancy test kit.

Polly closed her door on Angel, her pregnant daughter. It was her last sighting of her face. Angel never spoke to Polly for several years. A little girl from another school came into her classroom one day and put Polly in a daze.

Polly was overcome with emotion when Polly heard about her past. She ran to her house in tears. “How could I have been such an evil….” she cried, putting together the pieces of her past…

Eight years ago, Polly’s life was very different. After a turbulent divorce from her husband, she was left alone to raise Angel, her beautiful daughter. Her daughter was a gift to her mother. She invested so much time, love and money to make sure she had everything she wanted.

Mike was Polly’s boyfriend.

“Why am I feeling this way? Have I seen you?”As she stared at the girl, she murmured.

“Here, fill up a ransom that you please and leave my daughter alone,”Polly once asked Mike to tell Angel how much he wanted.

Mike declined Polly’s offer and said he loved Angel, not her money. When Polly realized Mike was a tough nut to crack, she went home to convince Angel to leave him and found Angel testing for pregnancy at home.

“You spoiled little brat! You’ve brought down my name and reputation in society!”Polly yelled when she saw Angel sobbing and holding a pregnancy kit in her hands.

The results showed that Angel was actually pregnant. Angel was born in the heat of the moment. Polly pushed Angel out and cut her from her life.

“No, mom…please, I beg you,”Angel begged her mother. “Please…Sarah and I don’t have anywhere to go.”

Polly was furious at Angel’s pregnancies and believed it would damage her reputation within society.

“Never come back, even if you come to know I’m dead and gone, never come to my funeral,”Angel was walking to the street and Polly shouted at her.

Polly didn’t regret losing Angel and continued on. One year later, she married a longtime friend. She adopted two children, and never desired to have another.

“Having children, raising them with love, and finding out they’re backstabbing you! I’m not ready to take that route again,”She frequently told people who asked her about her adoption. “I’d rather love children who would love me back and not just some random roadside Romeo.”

Polly had a happy life. She taught at a local elementary school. Polly loved children and believed it was the only way to heal from past pains.

One day, a little girl entered her classroom. Somehow, the girl was attracted to her.

“Why am I feeling this way? Have I seen you?”As she stared at the girl, she murmured.

“Her birth parents died in a car crash when she was just a year old,”Polly was informed by the principal. “They were on their way to invite the girl’s grandma to her first birthday party.”

Polly’s eyes grew giddy with emotion as she thought the girl might be her grandchild. While looking for clues, Polly noticed a birthmark that looked similar to Angel’s on the girl’s neck. Polly was shocked, but she wanted to verify the truth.

“What is your name?”She asked the girl.

“Sarah…my name is Sarah,”The girl replied. “And I’ve seen you in a picture of my mom.”

Polly remembered Angel calling her daughter Sarah. She was devastated and couldn’t find any explanation for her daughter to who she was. 

“I’ve often seen mom cry looking at that photo,”The girl explained. “It’s the only thing I have of her now…And who are you?”

Polly was haunted by Sarah’s innocence. She was brokenhearted and couldn’t believe that she’d left behind her daughter for so long. Sarah was unable to look at her. She ran for the rest the day, determined to fix the situation. But fate had other plans.Source: Unsplash

“I shouldn’t have done that to her…I should’ve known,”Polly was sobbing that night. She reached out to Sarah’s adoptive family the next day to see if she could have the girl in her custody.

“If not, I should at least be allowed to see her…they should allow me because I’m her grandma,”Polly thought.

However, Polly returned to school the next day and received some bad news. “Her parents won’t be sending her to this school anymore,”Polly was informed in part by the principal. “She had told them about meeting you, and they’re furious.”

Polly was pitied by the principal and she was given her parents’ address. Polly drove straight to the address, thinking she would convince Sarah and her husband to allow her to live there. They were not kind to her, much to her disbelief.Source: Pexels

“How can we trust you with our child when you’ve failed your daughter?”Polly’s father angrily interrogated her after she asked for custody of Sarah.

“Aren’t you done ruining your daughter’s life? Do you want the worse for Sarah, too?”The mother yelled at him.

Polly was teary-eyed and, before she could speak another word, her father intervened and said: “Sarah is already going through a lot…she has many problems, and we don’t want you to add to them. Please don’t come here again.”

The couple waited patiently for Polly to go. With tears streaming down her cheeks, she left and glanced behind to see if Sarah had returned. She was not. Polly decided that she would move on and trust that the time would heal everything.

But several months later, a school nurse who was also Polly’s best friend rushed to meet her in her classroom with a piece of bad news…

“An 8-year-old girl is admitted to the hospital my husband works,”The nurse explained. “She needs an immediate kidney transplant, but doctors couldn’t find a donor.”

Polly was shocked, and she listened with curiosity. “But what can we do to save her?”She asked the nurse.

“It’s Sarah!”The nurse explained that Polly was frozen in disbelief.

It turned out that Sarah’s adoptive parents did not have the money to find a donor in time to save her life.

“Now I get it! These were the problems her father told me before ousting me from their house,”Polly was recalled.

She knew this was her only chance to build a bridge with her granddaughter, so she rushed to the hospital where Sarah was being treated.

Sarah’s adoptive family received a phone call from hospital just a few days later.

“Yes, you heard that right! We found a donor!”Sarah’s dad was informed by the doctor.

The parents raced to the hospital to meet the kind-hearted individual who offered to save their daughter’s lives. They were surprised to find Polly there.

“Mrs. Polly Thomas???”Sarah’s parents cried in disbelief.

Polly waited in the hospital to receive the transplant. She smiled at them, and then she was overcome with emotion.

Sarah was able to recover after the operation. She asked her parents to take her to meet the person who saved Sarah’s life.

Polly quickly walked to her classroom on a Monday. After returning from her medical leave, she was now walking quickly to her classroom. She walked in to the classroom and was greeted by a chorus of cheers. Suddenly, streamers appeared.

“Welcome, Mrs. Polly!”The students sang in unison.

Polly was overcome with joy. Then the students cleared the crowd, and Polly froze in disbelief. Sarah was standing at the back, smiling.

“Sarah, my darling!”Polly ran to hug her granddaughter. The old teacher had never been happier feeling Sarah’s little hands wrap around her.

Later, Polly received a call from the principal confirming that Sarah’s parents had sent her back to the school. “And Mrs. Polly…they told me you can take your granddaughter with you for the weekends and have fun with her!”She continued.

“I will…I will surely be the best grandma to her!”Polly gasped, wiping away the tears from her eyes.
