Kiefer's best buddy at his orphanage in Haiti now lives in TEXAS!!!  Kiefer and Samuel lived at Ruuska Village together and survived the earthquake of January, 2010.  Both boys came home to their forever families in April, 2010.  However, Samuel's forever family lived in Tennessee, which was not too convenient for playdates from Texas.

Well, Samel's forever family moved to TEXAS two weeks ago!  So, Samuel and his parents and brother all came over Saturday night (August 20).

Kiefer didn't seem to recognize/recall Samuel right off the bat (Kiefer was 20 months old when he came home from Haiti), but that didn't stop him from having a blast with Samuel.  I sure wish I had an understanding of what was going through Kiefer's brain when he saw Samuel.  I wonder if he remembered him?  I wonder if he has any memories of life at Ruuska Village?  I wonder if he recalls playing with Samuel at the orphanage for hours and hours and hours, every single day?

Samuel and Kiefer wrestled, played, and jumped on the trampoline.  And wrestled some more.

And they swam.  (Don't have any photos of that activity.)

They rode horses, too, all by themselves!

Samuel shared his daddy with baby Selah!

Samuel's little brother, Caeden (age 2), hung in there with all of the "big" kids.

Such precious boys!

Thanks, Carrie and Thomas, for coming out to Forgotten Saw Ranch!  We had a great time visiting with y'all, and we're so happy to live close enough for these two best Haitian buds to grow up together.

Welcome to Texas, Samuel and family!
