Even once Sebba had made the decision to add Royce to his family, that was still easier said than done. Royce was at a shelter in Miami, while Sebba lived in Orlando — hours away. Sebba was determined, though, so he called the shelter and asked them to put a hold on Royce, and then hopped in his car and drove more than 200 miles to meet the newest member of his family.
“I remember being worried that I wasn’t going to make it before they closed,” Sebba said.
Luckily, Sebba made it just in time, and a volunteer took him into the back to meet Royce for the first time.
