Will and his sister Alanna were dumped in a shipping yard days before temperatures dropped below zero. Since getting into a foster home, they have come out of their shell. Will is still more timid than his sister, but he loves curling up in a lap and getting loved on. He is a sweet boy that is very docile for his age.

Elm is incredibly sweet, curious and smart. She wants to please whoever she is with. Though she is playful, she is not very hyper and I think she will be a relaxed, loving girl when she grows into adulthood.
