One day, Rose received a letter that her father had died. She had only her father in the world and she became so sad. She lived in another state for study purpose and rushed to join the funeral of her father. But she had an irony fate and couldn't see him for the last time.
She decided to stay to her father's house for several day and began to formalize the inheritance. And so she went to the family lawyer. But he shocked her with an unexpected news. He said that according to Rose's father's will, half of his estate goes to her sister. Rose exclaimed and said that it could not be possible because she was the only child in the family.
Rose was not giving up so easily. She wanted to find out who her father had willed half of the property. So, she decided to hire a detective who would help her finding information about the mentioned sister.
Soon the detective came to meet her and revealed an untold past to her. It turned out that Rose's mom had been pregnant with twins. Her father was a loving man and he helped her with everything. The pregnancy went well and all the tests were normal. Also the childbirth started on time and her husband took her to the hospital immediately.
Rose was born first and was completely healthy. But the birth of the second child was much more difficult. And it was the root of everything. The doctor told them that he was sorry because the second twin had down syndrome. The couple was heartbroken.
Rose's mom cried and her father already made his decision. He told her that he was a famous singer and a sick child would interfere with his career. And he force his wife to leave the second and sick baby Laurie in the clinic. The mother's heart was breaking but the father didn't even care that.
When they returned home the mom's condition was getting worse. She couldn't stay without the baby. They fought constantly and their soured over what happened. She told him that he was very cruel and always got angry. But he didn't mind and suggested her to forget what had happened.
And she couldn't bear it anymore. One day, the wife left a short note and disappeared forever. She wrote that she was leaving for another man and suggest him not to look for her.
After his wife left, he realized his mistake. He cried with the photograph of the two baby. And started to repent. Then he started to pay for Laurie's life at the clinic until he died. He did everything for a better life of her. But he never got the courage to visit his wife and didn't remarried for his life. He was ashamed of what he had done and so willed her Laurie for his half of the assets.
Rose thought that she didn't want to share the money with her. She needed all her father's money because she was a failed composer. But she wanted to make her career on this. And therefore she thought to get help from a lawyer.
The very next day she met one of the best lawyer in the city and told him everything. He told her that if her sister refuses the inheritance, only then it would all go to Rose. She told him that Laurie was so sick and so she could easily deceive her.
Rose returned home with a mind of work. She prepared all the documents to get her sister out of the hospital and went to find her. When Rose saw her sister, she was surprised. Because Laurie was not looking like a sick person, she was looking like a healthy one instead.
Anyway, she went to her and told her that she was her sister and had come to take her home. Laurie became so happy and exclaimed that she always dreamed of having a sister. Rose was sure that Laurie would do whatever she said and they started for home.
They both was hungry and stopped for a bit to eat at a cafe on the way. Laurie was taking her food to a table and then she accidentally knocked food onto a stranger. The man got so angry and started to scold her badly. But Rose's sister smiled sweetly back. The man got more angry and exclaimed that the girl was so scary. Everyone in the cafe started to laugh at the girl. And Rose decided not to stand up for her sister.
They came to home and Rose told her sister to make herself at home and to be comfortable. Laurie thanked her for everything she were doing for her.
Rose could easily understand the girl was innocent and immediately called the lawyer. She told him that Laurie was so stupid and asked him to prepare the documents. She again told that she would sign everything to her.
While she was calling the lawyer, she heard the beautiful sounds of the Piano. She came outside of the room and saw it was Laurie. She asked her how she learnt to play so beautifully. She replied that their mom was a pianist and she taught her. But Rose said that their mom disappeared many years ago. But Laurie said something different. She said that their mom worked in the clinic and took care of her all these years.
Rose was surprised but couldn't believe Laurie and so she drove to the clinic. But it turned out that Laurie had told the truth. And after a long life, Rose met her mom.
She asked her mom why she ran away with her lover and left her behind. She replied that she never had a lover. She continued saying that she knew that her sick daughter needed her more and so she left to take care of her. Rose again asked why she didn't call her. Her mom replied that she didn't want her husband to find her and hoped that Rose could forgive her someday.
But Rose was never been able to forgive her mother because she also really needed her. She left the hospital with teary eyes. But she felt ashamed that she wanted to use her sister. She began to spend more time with Laurie. And soon she realized that Laurie was not sick, just different.
Down Syndrome is just a part of a person, not a definition of who that person is.
