Dying Woman's Trust Shattered: To Adopt or Not to Adopt? 😢💔

Our protagonist is dying from esophageal cancer and wants to spend her final holidays at home with her 10-year-old daughter, Amy. She's been married to James for 3 years and together for a total of 5. Amy is actually her niece, but she adopted her as her own. They've discussed the possibility of James adopting Amy, but two months ago, she discovered that James had a one-night stand with a coworker 4 years ago. Now, she's questioning his character and whether she can trust him to be a suitable parent for Amy. James is desperate to adopt Amy and claims that his mistake doesn't take away his love and care for her. The protagonist is considering divorce but worries about the impact it will have on Amy. Can she trust James to make the right decisions for Amy, or should she rescind her offer of adoption? The internet weighs in on this heartbreaking situation. 💔😢
