Shelby watched the kids playing together. Devin had been here for a week now. She enjoyed having him so it wasn’t much of a problem. He was a good kid and really smart. She just didn’t understand how his parents could just abandon him like they did.
She looked at her son and smiled. She loved him so much. She could never think of just walking away from him. They had a rough start together, but that was not his fault. Now things were great. Now that Devin was with them, things were even better. Campbell had someone to play with when the other kids had gone home.
She watched the boys hug and smiled. The two had become friends almost instantly which was great. She just worried what would happen when Devin’s parents were found. She didn’t want Campbell to lose a friend and she was afraid that would be what would happen.
She heard the knock on the door and smiled when she saw who was on the other side. She quickly opened it and hugged her old high school friend.
Kaitlyn followed her inside the house.
“I just got back to town. You are my first stop. My parents do not even know I am back yet.”
She looked around and saw the two boys.
“Mom said you only had one child. Who is the other one?”
Shelby told her about Devin and what was going on.
“That is crazy. Parents like that really shouldn’t be parents at all. I am glad he is with you and being cared for.”
