Perhaps you haven't heard the news:
JOSIAH has been MATCHED
with a forever family!
And I want to tell you the story.
I first met Josiah in June of 2014. He was 3 years old, and barely 2 feet tall. I'll never forget the moment he burst through the door as I was handing out coloring pages to some other kids. His high, loud voiced pierced the air as he waddled in, announcing his own entrance. He saw me, saw that I was handing things out to kids, and confidently made his way toward me, demanding that he wanted "one." I don't think he even knew yet what I was giving out, but he didn't want to miss out on any of the action.
Amidst all of the struggles, sheer joy and unlimited laughter have been the highlights. Josiah was the first child I introduced to books, and we read that Fruit board book for hours before moving on to Vehicles. Turns out that books are the only thing that keep him still for more than 2 minutes at a time. Tickles, chasing, hiding, and being sneaky are some of my favorite memories with Josiah, and we have spent countless mornings together laughing and hiding and sneaking around corners to scare each other.
We hope that this is the first of many family stories we get to tell you in the future.
