The Boy Who Wouldn't Smile

The Boy Who Wouldn't Smile

The story of Big Brother Stephen and Little Brother Niigel started in October of 2008. When Stephen first met Niigel, one of the first things Stephen noticed is Niigel did not smile. As the years went on, Stephen would take Niigel on outdoor excursions, like ice fishing, snowboarding and hiking.
