On January 6, 1977, the woman named Edith Decoud opened her door to find a baby on her doorstep.
Edith was only 27 years old when she found the newborn who was wrapped in some blankets and clothes outside her home. She was initially shocked by the finding but she didn’t hesitate to welcome the baby boy into her life, adopting him as her own.
When Edith found the baby, he was only 3 days old. At that time, she was married and lived in Paraguay with a son. In such a situation, she opened her world to this defenseless and unwanted newborn calling him David.
The doctors told her that the baby was only 3 days old and from that day on she began celebrating his birthday on January 3 every year.
Accordingly, David grew up in the Villa Morra neighborhood of Asunción, with his parents and his older brother, surrounded by the love and security that he deserved.
However, when children started teasing him because his skin was different from his parents, he started asking questions. At the age of 12, his mom told him that she had chosen him at a hospital not wanting to burden him with his true birth story at such a young age.
It wasn’t until David was 24 that he learned the complete truth at a family barbecue. Instead of being angry at his parents for not telling him the truth, he had the respect for them.
Today, David is a successful sound engineer who now takes care of his mom after his father left his life. He said, as per Extra.com “I always tell her (his mother) how much I love her, and how much I appreciate that she has taken a risk for me,”
“I am what I am thanks to my father and mother, who were my angels on earth.” The 44-year-old added.
