A little over 3 months ago, little Matthew (well, not exactly little) came into our family. My niece left him with my elderly parents to care for since she could not. When I heard what had happened, I traveled back to Oklahoma to assess the situation Seeing my 80 year old parents care for this BIG & rambunctious toddler was too much It was not a safe situation for either one of them. So I brought Matthew back to Oregon to live with us Honestly, it has not always been a smooth transition for either one of us It’s been hard at times But when Matthew came, he became a member of our family We took him in as one of our own He’s one of our children now With each day that passes, our love grows for each other So it is with God
