Tragically, “Dad” passed away suddenly, leaving the family very much in turmoil. Two children lost their father and Peanut and Oreo lost their main caretaker. And a grieving mom had all she could do to go on and build a new life. Peanut and Oreo were displaced.
We agreed to take them on and they arrived nearly a month ago. We split them up and both have done well. Peanut is with his second foster family, The Goldsteins, for now (fabulous first foster family could only keep him for 2 weeks because of a changing schedule). Peanut is taking it like a champ. He has not lost his spirit.
How Peanut can go through so many challenges and changes and still show us his tender, loving, trusting self is beyond me. I’m in awe of this guy. He is a wonderful teacher: strong, resilient and quite resourceful! And I suspect he’s going to heal someone’s heart.
