My wife and I have 4 children. Our oldest are 15 and 18, and our youngest who are 8 and 9, are adopted. When we first started fostering them they were under 2 years old, but they had undergone more trauma than most of us ever will. We have always made it a point to treat our youngest as our own, b/c they are. To be able to take them into the woods and bond over hunting like I did with my oldest boys means a lot to me, but it's impossible to put into words how much these beautiful kids are enjoying making these memories as well...I'm so grateful to The Lord for blessing us with memories like these, and for their happy God loving hearts.
Good for you! Our oldest is adopted, and fully understand the part about being your own! She's been mine since the day the nurse put her in my hands! Congratulations to the young man on his deer, and to you for being a great dad!!!
