Couple adopts orphaned child after tragedy, sister reacts badly 😢

After experiencing the heartbreaking loss of their best friends in a car accident, a couple has decided to adopt their godson, who is now orphaned. However, the wife's sister and her husband, who have been struggling with infertility, reacted badly to the news. They showed up at the couple's door, crying and saying that it was unfair that they were given the opportunity to become parents without having to go through the struggles of infertility. The couple was understandably upset and asked them to leave. Now, they are facing backlash from family and friends and wondering if they went too far. Despite the difficult situation, the couple remains committed to providing a home for their godson. Refer to the comments below for more details.
