Check out these adoption success stories. Congratulations to our adoptive families.
One More Makes Seven
Can you imagine adopting seven siblings, ages three through nine?
That’s what one Hamilton County family did. The husband and wife were foster parents for 20 years. They said they felt called to foster children, but had no intention of adopting.

Two Dads, Two Dogs, and a Baby
Dwayne and Ethan were foster parents to Camden from when he was only 1 week old. He was their first foster-placement and may not be their last. Camden is an outgoing toddler. Ethan describes him as a “social butterfly,” and the family cannot be happier they were able to finalize the adoption.

One More to the Bunch

Coming Home; A Kinship Adoption
Zion was born with severe needs as a child and needed more than his grandparents could give him at the time. They visited with him and remained a consistent part of his life until they were able to take him in and care for him full time. HCJFS caseworkers say this is a successful kinship adoption and that they’ve never seen Zion “happy” like this more.

Sisters Jazzy and Ruby were adopted by a couple from Loveland who have fostered for 18 years. Jazzy has been with them since she was 4 days old and Ruby joined the family a week after she was born. Long-time foster parents, Derrell and Linda were ecstatic to finally adopt. When these two girls entered their home, they knew it was a right fit.

And Brayden Makes Seven
Leah and Michael adopted Brayden shortly after adopting his brother Colton. He was placed into their care at just 2 days old. Brayden joins his brother and Lean and Michael’s five other biological children. Even with seven kids, Leah still firmly believes they will continue to foster new children.
