While this story had a sad beginning, it ended on an extremely happy note!
Gudiya, a 23 year old woman in India, was six when she was separated from her uncle at a railway station. The pair were on their way to visit Gudiya's grandfather, but the trip went amiss when Gudiya's uncle went to buy snacks and then tragically missed the train.
When the train reached its destination, Gudiya was placed in an orphanage because she couldn't remember specific details about her home or her parents. The only detail she could recall was that her uncle worked at a biscuit factory near a railway crossing in front of her house.
With little information to go on and limited resources, Gudiya spent 17 years in the orphanage.
Ugh, we just hate to imagine how heartbroken and scared Gudiya must have felt!
Thanks to Nneelakshi Sarma, an official of the Assam State Child Protection Society, however, Gudiya's fate changed.
Nneelakshi did what she wasn't able to years ago–she googled the minimal details Gudiya provided when she first arrived at the orphanage.
Luckily for Gudiya, Nneelakshi located her uncle and subsequently, her parents.
We're so thrilled Gudiya eventually found her parents!
