Saturday was a great day. My family attended the wedding of one of our past foster kids. This young man was 13 when he came and stayed with us for a year and a half and made some big changes in his life. He went on to be adopted by another family and has done well for himself. He and his new wife have bought a home and are remodeling it themselves.
We have stayed in contact with him over the years and are quite proud of what he has done. My wife and I are glad we were able to be a part of his life.

What a great story. You should be happy that you were able to be part of his turning around his life.

I'm happy to hear you are still a part of his life. You must have made quite an impression on him, back then. Keep up the good work and thanks for caring about others less fortunate.
