Much Too Long

It's been much too long since we featured two special little boys on this blog. Shaun and Chad have been growing and thriving in foster families since this summer which means that we haven't seen them quite as often as we would have liked. We recently caught up with them last week and they're doing marvelously! Just look at those shining eyes and chubby cheeks.

Chad is doing a lot of walking these days. It's hard to imagine that he's the same little guy he was last summer, crawling about and giving us happy grins. Philip is his foster brother and they get along fine. Just the other day Philip was asking about a picture of Logan, Jack's foster brother. "Who's that?" he asked. We told him, "That's Logan, he's your classmate Jack's little brother. Who's your little brother?" "Chad!" Philip replied. We're sure that they have lots of fun being boys together!

Shaun has always been the strong and silent type. His foster mom says that he understands everything, but doesn't care to share much. Maybe it has something to do with living in the same foster family as chatty little Emelia? With two older foster siblings, Emelia and Isaac, it might be hard for Shaun to get a word in edgewise.

It's exciting to watch these little boys blossom like only boys can. We long for the day that they will finally have forever families to call their own. One day that dream will come true. But for now we wait. Wait and hope.
