In appreciation for his long-lost family, Bill has decided to give the children a collection of books that his grandmother, Martha Buchanan, read to him when he was young. Miriam said these books, which are more than 70 years old, are part of Bill’s legacy and may be his most cherished possession.
Receiving this collection is the highest honor, Miriam said.
She added, “This holiday season, the Hutchins family is counting their blessings. They have been gifted with Bill’s stories, his cherished library, and a novel piece of their history.”
But most importantly, they added two more members to their loving family.
After meeting his newfound family in October, Bill was driving home from Danville, and he said to his wife: “As long as there are people like this, our country is not in trouble. They’re honest, hardworking people. We have a good foundation.”
Bill and his relatives are keeping in touch through e-mails and phone calls, and plan future visits.
