William is an unknown. He is already 13. That is definitely outside my comfort zone. And yet, I chose him when I could have chosen many younger children. After our agency agreed to let us adopt two this time I looked at many files. His was the first that made my heart go pitter-pat. I told our social worker she probably should have just sent pictures of boys with dimples. I am a sucker for dimples. That is the reason we added Jed when we were only planning on getting Simon.
When Will was little he had a large growth called an osteoma on the side of his head. Or at least that is what his file says it was. I have seen it in pictures - it was very large. After they removed it his eye/face droops on one side. We do not know if he has sight in that eye.
The picture of him with the paper is from a video where he is supposedly reading a letter he wrote to his 'parents to be'. I hope we are not too far outside his expectations.
