I had a nice life.
I had a Mom and Dad.
I had toys and a nice bed.
I had a house and delicious food.
But every day I made one wish.
“Please send me some children to love.”
But days went by
Then months went by
Even years went by
No children ever arrived.
I began to wonder if I should stop wishing.
But my mom and Dad told me they to wished for children and they would never stop
So I decided my wish needed to be more special.
“Please send me a Brother and a Sister”
And one day something remarkable happened.
Mom and Dad came home with Not One Child but TWO!
A Brother and a Sister.
“Just as we adopted you Bailey,” Mom said, “We adopted a Brother and a Sister for our family.”
So, now as an older dog that spent most of my day resting in the sun, I began to jump and play and understand how to be a Big Brother.
I even went to school and became a Delta Therapy Dog.
And every day I grew to love my family more and more.
“I’m glad I never gave up wishing because wishes DO come true.”
