Leo is an extremely cute and loveable baby. Because of Leo’s genetic syndrome, which is called wolf-hirschhorne, Leo has to catch-up developmentally. When Leo was put up for adoption, he was adopted by the Shafer Family. The Shafer’s were as lucky as someone who had won the lottery. Leo has lots of therapists which come weekly because they teach Leo helpful skills. Leo makes very cute sounds. We want him to talk but he has some speech difficulties. Leo is very loveable.
I love Tyler's perspective. He loves his brother. So often we are told by well meaning people that Leo is so lucky to be a part of our family. I LOVE Tyler's perspective- in his own words- he says- "The Shafer’s were as lucky as someone who had won the lottery." We are the blessed ones. So, if you want to know what it feels like to win the lottery consider adoption. You will be the one blessed as you forever change the life of a child who needs a family.
