Here is the first photo I ever saw of our Maxim. I'm not sure if it was just a photo op, or if he was really allowed to play on a toy four-wheeler. It didn't matter to me. I fell in love with that funny looking, cross eyed little kid. Something about him grabbed my heart and made me pay attention.
Now, after a hundred or more little gifts from people all over the country, we are very close to making him our son forever.
There was $200 in that little envelope.
