Adopted boy that’s never celebrated his birthday has touching reaction getting 1st birthday cake
“If a fellow isn’t thankful for what he’s got, he isn’t likely to be thankful for what he’s going to get.”
—Frank A. Clark
Often, we forget to take time and appreciate all the things that we have.
Being able to enjoy your own home, new clothes, gadgets, and being able to eat three times a day are just some things we often take for granted.
When Joe and Jamie Walker stopped as they arrived at their home, Abraham and his older brother, James, thought they were in a “second heaven.”
“You pass through this before you go to the big heaven. That is what I believe so.” Abraham told CBS News.
You might wonder, why would a young man think of a mere house as second heaven?
The story of Abraham and James will leave you speechless and will definitely make you cry.
These boys had a tough start in life. They were originally from Sierra Leone and were homeless.
The local orphanage accepted them and gave them shelter and after some time, Joe and Jamie Walker met the boys.
The couple adopted the brothers because they didn’t want them to be separated.
Joe and Jamie, along with Abraham and James flew to Charlotte, North Carolina after the adoption papers were completed last fall.
The Walkers felt so happy as they saw the wonder in the eyes of the boys.
“Every little thing that we take for granted — coming home from the airport, I hit the button to open up the front gate — ‘Dad!’” Joe Walker shared with CBS News with a smile.
Can you imagine being homeless and having nothing?
Now, these boys belong to a loving home with all the things they didn’t imagine they would ever have.
