There are far too many infants that have gone missing, and there aren’t enough hands to help them. However, in the narrative, things went differently.
On the side of the road, Nikki discovered a newborn raccoon. The apathy she encountered in the emergency services hit Nikki.
Even idealists, especially when working with animals, may turn harsh. But Nikki was still too fragile, and leaving the baby to die seemed awful to her.
Then she took him to her mother, explaining that an elderly woman had been bothering her for years with wishes for grandkids, and now she had one.
Nikki’s mother, on the other hand, has fallen in love with the raccoon. She is retired and has a lot of spare time on her hands. She can feed the infant five times a day using a bottle.
As the raccoon got older, he began to see her as his new mother. Although they did not nurture him at first since they knew they would have to release him into the wild, they eventually did. So it came down to hugs, which the raccoon enjoys the most.
Many years have gone since then, and the raccoon has grown up and now lives in the woods. And she’s found a new purpose in life: with no one else to care for the orphaned animals, Nikki’s mother took it upon herself to care for them.
She does not become connected to them, nor does she want to make friends with them; the raccoon is sufficient for her. However, the simple act of caring for someone gives her life significance.
