Former school resource officer adopts 24-year-old who really wanted a mom

前学校人力资源主任收养了一名24岁的女孩,这名女孩非常想有一个妈妈



At 24 years old, Shay Roberson was desperate for a mom. After aging out of the foster care system at 18, she wondered if having a family was a realistic option.

在24岁的时候,罗伯森就想要拥有一个母亲。在福利院成长到18岁之后,她希望自己能够有一个真正的家庭。

Shay, along with her two sisters, entered the child welfare system in 2005. She was 11 years old when she started to bounce from foster home to foster home, sometimes living with her relatives. Sometimes the siblings would return to their mother’s care, but her addiction to crack cocaine ensured that Shay and her growing family, now five siblings, would reenter the child welfare system.

罗伯森在2005年的时候和她的两个姐妹进入了福利院。当时她才11岁,他从一个福利院转到另一个福利院,有时候她也会和自己的亲戚住在一起。有时候,这三姐妹会回到自己的母亲家中,但是她们的母亲对强效可卡因上瘾,这就使得罗伯森和她的五个兄弟姐妹们不得不重新进入儿童福利院生活。

According to the IndyStar, Shay’s siblings were adopted by a relative, but not Shay. For years, the only constant in her life was Ginnie Wing, a school resource officer, whom she met when she was in the sixth grade. “My only interactions with police officers were always bad,” Shay told the outlet, “so whether they were coming to my house or, you know, in my neighborhood or removing me from my parents.”

根据媒体的报道,罗伯森的兄弟姐妹们被一个亲戚收养了,但是罗伯森没有被亲戚收养。好多年了,唯一一直照顾她是基尼,她是学校人力资源主任,小姑娘第一次见到她是在上六年级的时候。罗伯森说:“我和警察关系不好,所以要么他们会来到我家,你懂得,要么就会来到我家附近或者让我把我从我的父母亲身边带走。”

But Wing was different. For one thing, she was the first female police officer Shay had met, and for another, Wing genuinely cared about Shay.

但是基尼小姐不一样。她是第一名她遇见的女性警官,她基尼很认真地照顾罗伯森。

Wing and school counselor Anna Coyne became surrogate mothers to the teenager. The two women threw Shay a graduation party and even helped her move into the dorm at Indiana University. Over time, Wing visited during the university’s family weekends, and Shay joined the Wings for holidays.

基尼和学校辅导员共同成为了这名青少年的代理母亲。这两名女性为罗伯森举行了一个毕业晚会,并且帮助她搬入了印第安纳大学的宿舍。随着时间的流逝,基尼会在大学的家庭周末的时候去看望罗伯森,而罗伯森会和基尼一起过假期。

“It’s clear that she’s an amazing person that just has a light about her that lights up a room when she walks in,” said Matt Wing, a sergeant with the Brownsburg Police Department, who has three biological children with his wife. “She’s hard not to love, really.”

警官玛特说:“很显然她是一个很好的人,基尼对于罗伯森而言是光明,当她进入一个房间的时候,整个屋子都会明亮起来。基尼很难做到不去爱别人。”

About a year ago, while talking on the phone, Wing made an offhand comment to Shay: “We should have just adopted you.” Eventually, Shay worked up the courage to text Wing. “Can you think about adopting me one day?” she wrote, knowing she wouldn’t be able to ask the question out loud. “I really want a mom.”

在大约一年前,当基尼和罗伯森通电话的时候,她对后者说:“我们本该收养你的。”罗伯森鼓起勇气问她:“你能够在将来的某一天考虑收养我吗?”罗伯森当时问这个问题的时候不敢声音太大。她对基尼说:“我真的很想要一个母亲。”

Wing replied, “You know I would in a heartbeat.” Wing asked her family what they thought about the adoption, and her children said it was “about time.” An attorney cautioned against the adoption, so they got a new attorney.  “She’s ours and we’re hers. And we wanted that to become official,” Wing said. Shay Roberson became Shay Roberson-Wing on April 20.

基尼回复说:“你知道我会心跳加速的。”她征求了自己的家人对于自己这个收养的意愿的想法,她的孩子们说他们需要一段时间来考虑这件事。她的律师告诫她不要收养这个孩子,所以她雇佣了一个新律师。基尼说:“罗伯森是我们的孩子,我们是她的亲人。我们想要得到官方的认证。”于是在4月20日的时候,罗伯森成为了基尼的法律上的女儿。

“For this family, to accept me as their daughter and sister literally fills my heart. Never thought the police officer at my school would become my mom. Never thought I would be adopted at 24,” Shay wrote on Facebook. “Forever thankful for the Wing Family and their ability to help me trust and love again without putting my wall up!”

罗伯森在“脸书”上撰文说:“这个家庭接纳我成为他们的女儿和姐妹让我非常温暖和感动。我从来没想过我的学校的警官会成为我的妈妈。我从来没有小刀我会在24岁的时候被收养。我会永远感谢这个新家庭,它帮助我重建了对社会的信任、让我重新爱别人,消除了我和他人的隔阂。”
