Mom leaves son with neighbor ‘for an hour’ but never returns – so woman raises him as her own

Mom leaves son with neighbor ‘for an hour’ but never returns – so woman raises him as her own

Kind-hearted woman raised neighbour’s son after mum failed to return from shopping trip

Rosalinda was in her 20s when a neighbor stopped by and asked if she could watch her son while she went shopping for an hour – little did she know that the child’s mother was never coming back.

Most people would probably consider handing the child over to authorities, not everyone can just take in a child without warning, but for Rosalinda the situation was different.

The young married woman had been told she would never have children so she saw this moment as a blessing in disguise.

The young boy stayed with Rosalinda until he was 18-years-old and she raised him as her own child.

He eventually found his birth father and left to start a new life with him – and Rosalinda went on to foster many children, eventually adopting her daughter Lola in 1990, who is now 30 years old.

She shared: “That little boy stayed with me through my marriage that I’ve spoken about before until he was 18 when he found his dad and left to start a new life.”

After this, Rosalinda went on to foster many children – her first was a boy named Adeola

When her ‘adoptive’ son went to live with his dad Rosalinda made a decision to continue being a mum to others by fostering many children.

She said: “So I decided to become a foster parent. My first foster child was a little boy called Adeola. Over the years I’ve fostered many children and that led up to me getting my daughter.”

In 1990, she adopted her daughter Lola, who is still with her today

With over 57,000 followers, Rosalinda has become a celebrity on TikTok, where she tells stories about her life as a mom and the obstacles she has overcome.

This little boy’s story could have been a sad one if Rosalinda wasn’t the big hearted person she is and taken him in, raising him as her own.
