Deonte, the Boy Wonder, wanted his family — his whole family — to dress up as superheroes for his adoption day Saturday. You see, Superheroes are just about D’s favorite thing.
Um, no, his new mom told him. We’re not doing that. I don’t think Daddy is going to want to wear tights to the courthouse.
And that was that.
Until Tuesday afternoon.
His adoptive parents are going to raise D the way they raised their other children, Jake, Thea and Benny. To be a good citizen, to give back to the community. They already see it happening.
“There’s been a big change in six months. I’m anxious to see what six years does.”
He’s learning his new family, their routines, their oddball humor. At school he practices writing sentences.
My new mom is the best mom … and my dad is awesome …
How wonderful! 🙂
