“They’re the same,” said Julia’s mom. “When I first held Julia, since she couldn’t really hear my voice, she would smell my neck. And when I first held Walter, he did almost the same exact thing.”

She says it was fate that he became a part of their family.

“I remember just looking at him, and I just knew that he was meant to be ours,” she said.
