James, his wife, Amber, and then-3-year-old son, CJ, became the boys' saviors by welcoming them into their home. "The first day that I actually laid eyes on them, I literally thought they were dwarfs," she says. "When Michael came to ask me, 'Would you be my mom?' I melted like butter. Because I said after all that these kids have done, after all they've been through, they chose me."
