Woman Meets Her Rescuer – level 1

12-08-2016 07:00

This is a sad and happy story. A woman gives birth to a baby girl. The woman is scared. She cannot take care of the baby. She takes the baby to a phone box. She leaves her.

A man comes to use the phone. He finds the baby. He calls the police. He waits with her.

Later, the man wants to adopt the baby. He cannot. Authorities tell him that he should not see the baby. Other people adopt her.

The baby grows up. She finds out about the man. She asks for him to meet her. They are very happy to see each other.

Difficult words: phone box (a small place that has a phone inside it), adopt (take a baby from another family into your family), authority (a person who tells you what to do).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
