My heart always cries out for the older boys. I'm not sure why, but it's where God calls me. Isn't it interesting how he calls us all to a certain thing? Be it a certain country, an age group, or a specific gender, he calls us to that area and amazingly, all of the areas are covered. I love seeing the niche that God has placed us all in.
Like I said, for me, I'm called to the teenage boys. From my experience, teenage boys are very expressive writers. Plus, they always seem to wait much longer than other children. Though, the three boys I'm posting today aren't red heart kids. They've just grabbed me for whatever reason. Here they are:
