While Edi has come a long way and shown us he really isn't THAT bad, he definitely was more than we bargained for when we brought him home -- like, no way we would have picked him up had we known what we were in for.
But it's definitely stretched us in all the right places. And now knowing what we can handle, I wouldn't back down from the challenge with another diamond in the rough.
We count our blessings each day - yes, even on the bad ones - that we did take the chance on "Manny" and brought him into our lives 2 years ago (has it really only been that long?!).
Would you do it all over again, knowing what you know now?
