Max is a gift to our family from God.
Max would have died in China without us and our family would have been eternally incomplete without him. God gave us the opportunity to have him in our family in the depths of our sorrow as one door closed and a window was opened. In fact, you could say that the windows of heaven were opened and God bestowed a blessing on us so great that our "cups" could not contain it. Max is pleasant, gentle, smart, easy to please, silly and such a wonderful part of our family.
