The give and take between he and Joey runs without end, a stream of consciousness that magnifies the boy bond, laying the groundwork for a life-long friendship. They never lack for conversation and thus, I am never without entertainment.
It's like I have two hearts. When Wade remembers to hug me or he looks over his shoulder just to smile at me, there's a warmth that returns - like it was never gone, and I remember that I belong here, that I have a purpose. This strong and courageous boy is a gift; both my children are gifts. I just gotta try to be worthy of both of them.
