Eddie

Eddie, 12, was adopted seven years ago from Ecuador. His adoptive mother had a brother with Down syndrome who passed at age 10, so D.S. is very close to this family. I got to know them through church and have only met about 6 of the 12 siblings, but can certainly say that they’re a tight-knit and loving bunch, and as such, a perfect fit for Eddie as an addition to the family.  They love on him so well here.

We picked a day for me to come visit their homestead outside Greensboro. They live on a property in the middle of open fields, woods, and fresh air. Eddie’s first suggestion was to run with the dogs. Cars rarely come down this road, so it’s the perfect track for him to practice his sprints. He showed me the chicken coop and the goats and pigs, the chess set he practices with, and some of his soccer moves. Oh, and he absolutely destroyed me in a game of corn hole. I was warned that he beats most that dare compete against him, and it’s true.
