story. this is what sheer joy looks like when you are three and four. ( amy clary / dawson's mom ) "they must have hugged like 400 times. they kept hugging and getting so giddy that they would fall over, and that went on for like 20 minutes." after 11 months apart, two best friends together again, reunited halfway across the world. ( sharon sykes / hannah's mom ) "they call each other brother and sister." you see, before they were a part of their north texas families, hannah and dawson were each other's worlds -- inseparable at the chinese ( sharon sykes / hannah's mom ) "they had so little connection and so little consistency that they had each other for those first formative years." as the sykes went through the process of adopting hannah, dawson was always right next to her in every photo update -- sharing birthday cake, holding hands. ( sharon sykes / hannah's mom ) "he was on my heart, and i was like so... really i couldn't stop thinking of him." bringing hannah home to north texas meant leaving dawson behind. sharon was determined to find him a loving home, so she shared his story on facebook.

were reading on facebook." the clary's already had a full house -- three kids at home -- but they had an open heart. ( christopher clary / dawson's dad ) "i was gone for maybe 45 seconds, maybe it was two minutes, and then you said, 'we're adopting this little boy.' i just said, 'ok.'" they admit the process was much more complicated than the decision. but they felt called to help. nearly a year later, dawson and hannah are picking up where they left off. this time, they're neighbors, living five minutes away from each other. that is true friendship. ...and through their families... ( amy clary / dawson's mom ) "aww!" ...have become one. ( andy sykes / hannah's dad ) "it's not really what we're doing for these kids. it's what they're doing for us. in plano, gilma avalos, cbs 11 news. sherry, how's the weather? ((sherry swensk))
