For those who don't remember, my cousin is in jail and, when his girlfriend was arrested, she asked me to go pick up their son from the "babysitter". Long story short, she decided to take a deal (10 years with possibility of parolle after 5) to give up her dealer and admitted to me that she didn't really love her son and did not like being his mother (the boy was very obviously neglected and abused). She asked if I wanted to adopt him, and I agreed. We have had Riley since a week before Christmas. It has been a huge relief to my family to know that he is safe and loved now. After three years of praying for God to keep him safe from his parents and their lifestyle, he fell into my arms. God does answer prayers.
To clarify, Riley is 3. He will be 4 in September. We also have a 2 year old daughter and a baby on the way.
