Like A Son
Hubby's older brother and his wife don't have any children. I'm not sure if it's by choice or not but there is no chance that they'll have any biological children anymore. But even if that's the case, they have been some kind of adoptive parents to the son of one of their friends. My sister in law was even the one who helped his Dad look for alcohol treatment programs when son needed to enter in one a few years ago. I only met this young man a few times and I can tell that he really treats my in laws like his second parents because he would go with them when they take out of town trips. I guess that's one of the reasons why my in laws are not really longing for a child of their own. I just hope they will still be part of this young man's life even after he has his own family.
