So here is Mr. James. 
He is officially my second Cousin on my Mom's side, and Trav and I are offically his Foster Parents. 

We started off by watching him daily for a month then he started to stay with full time. 
 I can't say it's been WONDERFUL - I think the hardest of everything is getting all the boys to get along. Take a child where he was the only one and had his own toys to a house full of boys and having to share everything. The worst is James and Kimball fighting. Since Kimball is only 4  months older, they are constantly competing with each other.
 So we have been together for about 2 months now and I think  James is starting to get the hang of our rules and how things go. But I am pleased with his progress.

I am not 100% sure how long James will be with us, it will depend on how much process his parents make and how long it takes them to do everything the courts want them to do. It could be as little as 6 months to a year. Regardless we are happy to have James with us.

Crystal, you and Travis have huge hearts to welcome James into your home. He is very lucky to have you. I am so happy that he was placed with your family while his parents get things straightened out. I'm sure Shayna is thankful, and at the same time anxious to do whatever it takes to get her little man back living with her. Keep up the good work!
