there was a special boy named Sean. Sean had a great family and home, but he was still
lonely at times. There were many difficult obstacles to overcome through the years for this little boy that was nicknamed "the sunshine". Something
unexpected happened and he bonded with little angel creatures called ferrets that his daddy one day brought home with him. The ferrets were deaf
and were named Ping and Pong. Sean knew exactly what it was like to not be able to speak, communicate or even "hear" at times because Sean was
Meanwhile as Sean was learning to love and be kind to animals, he experienced great changes for the better. Things seemed so much happier.
But the sunshine had much to learn.
Up in heaven God was saying good-bye to a little baby ferret. God smiled and told the ferret he was to get lots of love down on earth. He painted
a chocolate line all around the baby ferret's nose, and then right down the middle outlining it. He said this is to remind his human to give lots of kisses.
Then he dabbed little chocolate freckles around the ferrets' face. He said these will be important later.
So baby ferret awoke with a nice ferret mommy and brothers and sisters. Things were going well. He could hear everyone just fine, and his eyes
were beginning to open so he could see his mommy when all of a sudden big human hands took him away. He was taken away too early. He was put
in transport to a place called a pet store. The baby ferret cried and no one answered. He still could not quite see yet. Finally he ended up in this place
called a pet store only to feel so ucky.
The uckiness grew worse and worse until he was so sick he couldn't really get up. He could not eat and drink. His eyes were infected and sealed closed
so bad he thought he would go blind forever. He felt like he was burning up and could not breathe.
He could still hear, and heard the humans talking to a sweet voice. The sweet voice said he had pneumonia. The human that this sweet voice
belonged to picked him up, and said he was so tiny he fit into the palm of a hand.
Soon he was traveling again. The sweet voice brought him to a warm cuddly place called a ferret shelter and gave him the name, Chester. He was
so tired. He was too tired to eat, drink and now breathe. An angel came down to earth and whispered in his ear, "sweet baby ferret please fight harder,
it is not time yet to come back". The ferret said, "but God said I would get love and I did not get that except from my mommy and she is gone now. I am
alone. And what is this kiss thing, I do not know." The angel said, "this couple is willing to love you and help you fight to live. If you live you will get
great love from these sweet human voices here. You are here for a purpose. There is a very special baby boy human that needs you desperately. He
will love you, and give you kisses." Baby ferret said, "when will he be here? How will I know him?" The angel said, "This sunshine boy is still learning to
be a ferret daddy. It will take much time. But he will come don't worry. You need time to get well, grow, and learn ferrety things here. You will know
this boy as he will have chocolate freckles on his face just like you". And the angel disappeared!
Months passed and Sean was learning to cuddle, play, talk, and be a good ferret daddy. His parents looked for a special ferret for him, but had not
found one yet. Back at the ferret shelter baby ferret was getting lots of loves and kisses. He got better and grew really big. He learned lots of ferrety
things from his friends at the shelter.
One day baby ferret heard noises and a clammer. He opened his eyes that could now see keenly with and saw lots of humans big and small. Next
thing he knew, the human with the sweet voice lifted him from his home and put him in another humans arms. He heard a funny laugh and looked up to
see a boy with chocolate freckles like him. Then the boy kissed his ferret nose! He heard the boy ask if the ferret was special and he listened to his story
told by the sweet voice as the boy warmly hugged him.
The boy was named Sean he found out. Baby ferret Chester and Sean chased each other and got to know each other. Then baby ferret found him
self sleeping in the boys arms. He heard how his new name would be Rocky because he was such a fighter, and because he liked to rock as he drifted
off. When he awoke ... he awoke to see a home all to himself. He had new a liter pan, new cage, a cheweasil, and everything he ever wanted. He
missed his old toys but the new toys were really cool. He missed his ferret friends, but he got two new brothers named Ping and Pong now!
Late at night before bed Sean cuddles and hugs Rocky and rocks him to sleep. He can hear Sean's mommy telling the family the story of "Rocky and
Sean". He got kisses from Sean's sweet baby lips on his nose as he slept. He realized that Sean was also very special, and remembered all that God
told him. He dreamt of the sweet voices, and old friends. And he dreamt of a special little boys laughter, and the chase games they play happily ever
