They Love Him Too

For 19 months only he was solitary, an individual child in a house of adults. But after the 19th month - he was just the oldest of three. He has spent the best part of his six years helping to take care of the littler ones, the ones who needed more help - the ones who still need more help. He's never been jealous or upset because there were "babies" in his space. He helps fetch and carry for them, cleans up their messes and helps keep them safe - acting as extra eyes and ears. In fact, he's so loving sometimes it amazes.
So it was very tender to see him sleeping in the back with his baby brother taking gentle care of him while he slept.
Nice to know that as much as he loves them - they love him too.
