Bus Driver Takes Woman in Labor to Hospital, Adopts Her Orphaned Child Two Years Later— Story of the Day

A childless bus driver comes to the rescue of a pregnant woman who goes into labor on the bus. He switches routes to drive her to the hospital, never imagining how she would transform his life two years later.

Bill loved children and always carried a small candy box during his shift every day. He was a bus driver and loved treating the kids who rode on his bus to some goodies.

Being around naughty and chirpy little kids comforted Bill. It eased his sorrow and helped him forget he was childless. His wife, Julia, couldn’t conceive due to some health issues.

Bill’s world was very small. It was just him, his wife, and their dog, Coco. He became the solid support Julia needed to overcome her grief. “God is watching over us, and He will surely answer our prayers one day,” he often told her.

One day, Bill was busy driving when he heard chaos on the bus. Suddenly, a man came running to him and said: “Driver, there’s a pregnant woman on the bus. I think she’s in labor…Please, do something!”

God watches over His children and always answers our prayers unexpectedly.
Bill was alarmed and realized he had no time to waste. He turned around and saw only five or six passengers on board. He stepped on the gas and drove as fast as he could.
The nearest hospital was five stops away, and time was running out. Bill had previously worked as a taxi driver, so he knew most of the shortcuts. Moreover, getting to the hospital would take half an hour on a direct route, and the woman was in terrible pain.

“Hold on, Miss! We’ll get there on time! Please hold on!” he shouted from the front.

Bill thought his passengers would understand it was an emergency, so he switched routes and sped up, arriving at the hospital in ten minutes.

“Jesus…thank you so much!” he gasped as the lady was taken inside. She panted and puffed in pain as she lay on the stretcher.

Bill was about to get onto the bus and leave when a nurse shouted to him: “Excuse me, sir! She said she left her bag on the bus! ”

Bill quickly retrieved the lady’s handbag and gave it to the nurse before taking off with the other passengers.

That whole day, Bill was worried about the woman. He was glad he helped her get to the hospital on time, but he wanted to make sure she and her baby were alright. He decided to visit her a week later.

“Are you going to visit that woman today?” Julia asked Bill as he left home for work. He had told her everything about the encounter that happened a week ago. “Please don’t go empty-handed. Buy something nice for the newborn!”

Bill kissed his wife and left. At the end of his shift, he went to the hospital to visit the woman. He learned her name was Sophia, but she was no longer at the hospital.

“She left yesterday with her baby,” the nurse informed Bill. He was pretty disappointed. He had bought a onesie and a warm blanket for the newborn.

“Do you have her address?” he asked.

“Yes, one minute….”

Bill took down Sophia’s address and went to meet her. As he neared, he found out that the address was of a shelter for the homeless. “She lives here?” he wondered.
He hurried inside to meet Sophia and her baby but came out disheartened. It turned out that she had moved out that morning, and nobody knew where she had gone.

Bill returned home disappointed. “I should have visited her sooner. It’s my mistake,” he grumbled.

“Darling, it’s okay. Maybe somebody came for her. Let’s hope she and her baby are fine now,” Julia comforted Bill.

Eventually, the couple forgot about Sophia and her baby. Everything returned to normal until one day, two years later, when Bill noticed something unusual as he got on the bus. He saw a woman fidgeting with a heart-shaped locket and was drawn to Sophia’s picture in it.

“Do you know this woman? Is her name Sophia?” he asked the lady.

“Yes. But how do you know Sophia?” the woman asked as Bill grabbed the locket and stared closely at the picture.
“I can never forget that face…I still remember how she screamed in pain that day…How is she? I hope she and her baby are doing well.”

Bill saw the woman turn pale as tears slowly rose in her eyes. He was unprepared for the heartbreaking revelation about Sophia and her baby.
