Beautiful stories of not only uniqueness, but of love and rescue. I'm so glad these little ones found compassionate homes where they are loved and celebrated for being "different." I was especially touched by the story of Frankenlouie. May God bless all of these little [big, in the instance of Zeus] angels and the people who love them. Thank you for sharing.
