We will pay it forward

A retired postman called Mike and wanted to come meet Wade. He had retired before Mike started at the post office but like most small towns they knew each other and had heard we adopted. His wife and him stopped by on Saturday morning and gave him a book, a little truck and some pj's. But as we visited they told us a story of how the local hardware store owner showed the mailman a lineup of new tricycles one day when he was in the store. He said "which one do you like best"? He selected one and the man got it off the shelf and said "here I heard you adopted a boy, and I want him to have it". The mailman's son is now 43 and he had told his wife then he would do the same for another adopted boy someday. Wade got to be that boy. And yes we can't wait to do it for another!!!

I am crying... happy tears for the little boy that will, one day, inherit this treasure. Until then, ride on Wade, ride on!

That is the best story! Actually...just another wonderful chapter in your already wonderful story. Wade looks like he's ready to ride!
