jangan menangis...

met a patient's mother today...
since i am now in paediatric postings, so the most i can dig out from a patient is via the mother...
my patient today is a 2 year old malay boy who came in due to fever..
his fever was just like any other normal fevers, but they admitted him because they were afraid if its dengue fever..however, in that sense he's fine...
he is a solemn looking boy, rarely smiling and didn't even talk..i couldn't hear his voice at all but according to the mother, he was always like this, so its not surprising...
halfway through the interview, i found out that the mother taking care of him is actually not his real mother but his aunty...
his real mother is actually a 21 year old unmarried girl who left him 12 days after being born..
2 years of his life, he never knew his mother...
his aunty (the real mother's sister) whom he called "mak" took care of him because her husband wanted to eventhough every other people in her family were against the plan and wanted him to be given to outsider or Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat...his aunty's refusal of giving him away and her husband's good natured determination gives him the chance to live like other normal kids from a normal happy family...
sadly, whenever he was brought back to his village, his grandmother refuses other people of the village to know of his existence...he was not allowed to go out of the house...his existence is a shadow of an unforgivable sin, but he didn't even know it...nobody realizes that he did not ask to be born into the world, he did not make his parents create him out of wedlock, he did not want to be a stranger of his own family, whats more of a mother...all that he wanted are parents who could love him because it is their responsibility, because he is their way, their chance for redemption of their past mistake..yet they make him pay for their sins...

what moves me was the tears of the aunty who was so depressed because of how this boy is being treated...how everyone in her family seems not to care about the boy's future once he know of who he really is..

i know, this time will pass, but at the same time i am very much relieved because he was taken care by an aunty who loves him and an uncle who regards him as his own son..and he did not end up thrown into the bin like some sort of rubbish...how i wish that there'll be more kind-hearted, steel spirited people like them..may ALLAH bless them here in the world and more importantly in the hereafter...
