I often refer to them as “little monkies” and they sure can be at times. Not my own children but have become very attached to them while we wait for the parents to get to a point they can raise the children themselves. I forgot how quickly they do grow and the money needed to care for them!
They call me PaPa but really I am their cousin. Someday they will know.
Today it seems they may get to live out their lives with not much stress. I hope the road is not too long for them and they are given the understanding to live a very selfish world.
