This baby and the dog share their joy with the rest of the planet.
According to most adoptive parents, raising children is a difficult but rewarding profession. “Foster care was one of the most challenging but absolutely the best things we have ever done,” says Kari Lewis, a junior foster mother from Portland, Oregon.
When a family adopts a new foster child, they are concerned that the youngster will find it difficult to adapt, open up, and feel at ease in the new environment.
Sandy Sviridoff, Kari’s mother, faces great challenges as a foster grandmother for the children her daughter brings into her home.
A few years ago, Sandy acquired Reagan, an Australian labradoodle, in order to have something more permanent in her life that she could adore.
Kari took Buddy, an 11-month-old boy, into her home when Reagan was 11 months old.
Since then, Buddy has been in Kari’s care. In February 2017, he and Reagan will turn three years old.
Buddy and I have been inseparable ever since Buddy came into the house. Buddy and Reagan have always been together now, and they share their joy with the rest of the planet.
They dress up in the same outfits, read together and spend a lot of time hugging.
