Thank you so much to Carolyn McCarthy for her generous gift in memory of her former foster Brody. Carolyn writes, “Brody was the most forgiving and loving boy. Although he was only with us for a very short time, we miss him every day!
Brody was a senior stray with a most severe case of a perianal hernia when Carolyn opened her heart and home to help him. She brought him through two surgeries to try to fix the hernia but it was so far gone his organs were coming through and beyond salvage. Each day the bond between Carolyn and Brody grew as each day he slowly declined.
For Brody, his journey ended with Carolyn but embraced with love and gentle care while she battled to help him recover. It is she who grieves for him, not the people who left him to fend on the streets. For all of our other fosters, with all of their quirks and differences, or just fallen on hard times, we all are committed to making sure they will never be unwanted again.
