Patrick is doing well at Morning Bray Farm.

He’s settling in nicely.

It has taken a while, but his brothers are allowing him to join them for meals more with each passing day.

I think he’s happy here. He never has to be alone again, which seems to suit him just fine.

He’s a very sweet, gentle and curious boy. Once in a while, we find him a short distance away from the other boys looking quite sad. I wonder what he’s thinking when he does this and I hope he can forget.

Most of the time, though, he’s working on becoming a character right along with everyone else.
