Cole on the Roll
Cole is one bright kid. He is thrilled to have a new brother and sister (but mostly a new brother). Cole is a great example to hiS sister Emma. They take care of each other and sometimes disagree but Cole is so very kind to her.
Cole loves to camp. Every May we have a father son campout and Cole has a great time. As a tradition I always take my boys, and anyone else who wants to go, on a hike. Cole had a hard time giving up his play time this year but once we got going, he had a great time. I overheard him talking to his friends about the hike. He was pretty proud. I think he'll be looking forward to it next year.
Cole came into our family when he was 2 years old. He had the effects of amniotic banding on his hands and feet. This included bilateral club feet. His right foot is functioning fine. We still struggle a bit with his left foot. Nothing else bothers him too much as long as we let him Know we love him and he is a good boy.
I have to add. We were watching Santa Paws last night. He loved the story in general but it was about all I could do to keep him there because he was afraid of the mean foster home care taker! He's a sweat boy.
