Hopefully though if anything bad happened to him while he was on his own he did have a good family before that that loved him the way that he should be loved.
And he certainly has a good family now that loves him the way he should be loved. 🙂 It does sound like it's probably just going to take some time. Zoey would run from me the first couple of days after I brought Tyler and Zoey home. But with her, it only took a very short time before she realized I wasn't going to do anything bad to her. And she's a little cuddle bug now.
