    Am I the only one that thinks the description and pics don’t match? The hat is obviously NOT a cowboy hat and there is no mention of this woman or a van.

      I agree with you that looks more like a beach or fishing hat to me and the build and skin color to me looks like a Hispanic , white , or asian and the build looks more like a woman or a very small man . I hope they find out who that person is but I’m feeling like the person with that child is not it’s parent .

    For all of you wanting to take him in, please become foster to adopt families. There are so many children in our area without stable homes in all age ranges. Each one of these children deserves a Christmas and a parent who loves them. Reach out, and change two lives. Yours and a child’s.

    Omg look at this sweet baby boy! I will take him. He will have his own room, a great Christmas, plenty of food, all of the loving he can stand & we will do some at-home learning. I have a son and I will definitely take another one into my home. Where do I fill out adoption papers?
