“If we can learn a lesson from anyone, it’s the Astros. They were down and then they came back.” Yea, I was down. I didn’t have a forever home. But I kept fighting. I was in a good foster home and what I really wanted to do was stay there. And that’s what happened! My foster parents, Michael & Suellen, became my forever home parents! It’s what I wanted. It’s what they wanted. And it’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Beau
