Mike and Cody from Phillip Hayden

Both times we have visited Shepherd's Field, a little boy has taken to Mike. Last time it was Christopher and this time it was Cody. Cody has Down Syndrome and is so lovable. When he saw Mike, he immediately went to him and asked to be picked up. Mike pulled his back out so he tried to pick him up, but then had to put him down. The ayes explained to Cody that Mike couldn't pick him up because of his back, so Cody pulled a chair next to him and sat with his hand on his knee. So many things tugged at my heart during this visit, but seeing this little boy with DS understand Mike's injury and pull the chair over so they could still be close just melted my heart.
