Fourteen years ago, writer Cindy Gabriel called to tell me she wanted to write an inspiring story of an 11-year-old only boy named Wiley who had lost both of his parents. The story was about his move to Houston to join a large family of cousins. I was planning to assign her the same story. I told her she had the neighborhood wrong, though. She said Wiley lived in Bellaire. I said no – he lived in West University. I was sure of it. As it turned out, we were both right. There were two young boys, both newly adopted, both named Wiley, living blocks from one another. Cindy shared their journey to Houston then, and it's still unforgettable. In this issue, Cindy catches up with the Wiley from Bellaire, who has pursued his creative dreams and has some awesome news.
