Wait, what? There’s no way that Kaylee actually got adopted in less than four weeks.
After Kaylee visited Santa, she asked me if I thought he would grant her Christmas wish. “Will he help my People find me, momma?” I choked back a tear, slapped a smile on my face, took her mushy face in my hands as I looked deep into her beautiful eyes and said,”I sure hope so, Kaylee-girl. No one deserves it more than you do.”
But in my heart I knew it was a long shot – we only had a few short weeks before Christmas, and we hadn’t had one single inquiry about Kaylee. Even if someone did decide they were interested in her, would we even have enough time to go through the adoption process in time for Kaylee to spend Christmas morning under the tree with her new People?
Well unbeknownst to me, at the very same time I was trying to be optimistic on the prospect of Kaylee spending Christmas in her forever home, Kaylee’s new mom was falling in love with her online profile.
Meet Kandice and Larry, Kaylee’s new People! This high activity couple lives in a beautiful home with their Schnauzer, Ben. Larry is a pilot, and Kandice is (get this) a dog trainer. (Seriously. I mean, could it get any better?) Since Larry travels, Kandice wanted a larger dog to keep her company while hiking. And to spoil rotten, of course.
Kaylee, now Kate, will be living the good life from now on. She went from a chain, to a backyard pen, to a temporary foster home, to our Foster House, and now finally to her furever home, all in the first year of her life. Her bouncing around days are finally over. She’s already made herself right at home…
…and just in time for Christmas.
