We are used to measuring society by certain standards. If you study well in your youth, you can get a prestigious job and achieve stability in adulthood. If a person is homeless, he has probably squandered his savings, acquired destructive habits, and earned a reputation so that nobody will help him. We tend to judge people who find themselves in a difficult life situation, not knowing what exactly happened.

The number of beggars and homeless people is unbelievably high, even in developed countries. But not all of them are lazy. Not everyone consciously chose the path that led them there. There are a lot of decent people among them, broken by the blows of fate. That is why hardly anyone can know what is hidden inside a man who often causes disgust and pity.

Katie Nicol managed to find her happiness literally on the street. She was 38, divorced, and raising two children on her own. One day, she just stopped to chat with a homeless young man. Surprisingly, she found his story incredibly gripping.

John Haines, 31, had been living outside for a year and a half by the time he met Katie. He had often been insulted and humiliated by more fortunate passers-by. Before that, the man spent several years in prison for attacking his girlfriend's lover. Despite the lack of work, housing, and even ability to take a shower, he wanted to change. And Katie decided to help him with this.

Every day, she spent some time to walk with her new acquaintance along the beach. Soon the couple began to exchange short notes that were becoming more and more romantic. They talked about everything: favorite dishes, relatives, plans for the future. And just 2 months after they met, Katie invited her new friend home, allowing him to take a shower for the first time in almost two years. Homemade dinner likely became the most delicious thing John had tried since he became homeless.

The woman helped John find a common language with her parents and even got him work as a gardener. Soon, he completely changed his life and asked Kate to become his girlfriend, which she didn’t regret as a result.

Of course, not all people from Nicol’s surroundings approved of her new passion. Oddly enough, however, the couple was supported by Katie’s ex-husband. Unlike him, all her friends weren’t appealed by such relationship. Nevertheless, the woman is sure that dating sites and various mobile applications are much more dangerous since, there is no face-to-face communication between a couple.

Katie believed that John could change and helped him. During a year and a half of stray living, he has been repeatedly disappointed in people until he met the only one who believed him. Their story is incredibly touching and inspirational. Do you still doubt that love does wonders?
