In the meantime, Duke kept looking for a family for Benn, even though she couldn't be sure where he was. "I had finally found someone who wanted to adopt Benn, but she said she wasn't able to find him on the website, again," Duke said. "I called immediately and they said they couldn't find him in the system."
This is because Benn had apparently been adopted two days before.
As much as Duke wants to believe the good news, she remains skeptical. "I found it hard to believe, given Benn's past, his chronic eye issues and his age, that someone had adopted him so quickly," Duke said. "I want nothing more than to believe that Benn was adopted and he found a family that will love him forever."
