A girl named Tina decided to approach a poor old man, then discovered broken dolls in the back of her car. Frightened, she ran home to tell her mother, only to find that she really knew the man.

Tina was a 10-year-old girl who often walked around the neighborhood with her friends. One morning they decided to go to a street where they had never played. A place near Tina’s house.

As they walked down the street, the girls watched a homeless old man get out of an abandoned car. One of them suddenly whispered, “My mother warned me about him. He said he was a bad man who lived in this abandoned car. Nobody likes him, and everyone walks away because he knows he’s bad. “.

As the man walked towards them, all the children decided to run away, except Tina. He waited for the man to come over to see what he was going to do. When he approached her, he gave her an apple. “Thank you,” she said shyly.

“Wait here,” the old man said as he returned to his car. Tina approached where he was until she saw the curtain fall on the back door. The back of his car was full of old, broken dolls.

Frightened, she fled. The man tried to run after her, but she hurried in and closed the door. “What’s up, Tina?” Her mother asked as soon as she closed the door.

“The homeless man on the other side of the street was running after me,” he said, still trying to catch his breath.

Her mother, Patricia, was furious. He left the house and called the man across the street. “Stop scaring my daughter. Get away from her!” He told her.

The next day, Tina went for a walk with her friends. Before leaving, he noticed a beautiful doll on the door. She was painted and wore beautiful clothes sewn by hand.

“Where did you find it?” Patricia asked in surprise.

“I just found her at our door,” Tina told her mother, who rushed to grab something. A few minutes later, he came down again with a similar doll.

“Come on,” Patricia said to her daughter, holding her hand before driving her outside. Tina was surprised when her mother took her to the abandoned car where the homeless man lived. “You did, didn’t you?” Patricia asked, showing him the dolls.

The homeless man nodded. “Yeah, I made them,” he admitted.

Patricia smiled apologetically. “Please dine with us at home,” he said, inviting the man. He almost refused, but Tina’s mother insisted.

“I’m sorry I didn’t recognize you right away,” Patricia apologized after putting the food on her table. “You took dolls to the orphanage where I grew up,” he told the man.

“I still carry dolls to this day. I still find broken old dolls to fix and paint, and give them to orphanages. Sometimes toy stores that have damaged dolls tell me to pick up dolls that are about to be thrown away.” shared the man, who introduced himself as Patrick. Then he picked up the doll that Tina’s mother kept on the counter.

“I remember this doll. It’s one of the best I’ve ever made. You were the girl who gave me a sandwich next to the orphanage fence, right? And then I gave this doll away,” she recalled.

“It’s the only doll I’ve ever had, and of course it’s my favorite toy. I couldn’t separate myself from it, so I always had it with me,” said Patricia, the Weeping One. “He’s been my partner ever since.”

When Adam, Tina’s father, arrived, his wife told him the story of the homeless. He was immediately impressed by Patrick’s kindness and desire to make children in orphanages happy. So he offered to start a small business.

“Do you want to start a toy repair shop? I will be happy to help you assemble it and give you the capital to get it up and running,” Adam offered.

Patrick was delighted. It was the first time someone had volunteered to help her get started again. Although embarrassed, he accepted the offer and pledged to continue donating to the orphanages.

Parents from all over the village came to his workshop to have their children’s toys repaired. He also sold dolls that he repaired, and the girls loved them. Eventually, he was able to rent the studio himself and live a more comfortable life.

Patrick was very grateful to Patricia, Adam and Tina. They stayed close over the years, and her family invited her on special occasions.
