What first comes to your mind when you say, perfect family?
Many things influence the perfect family. It doesn’t mean that you have to be married to the person you love and have children you gave birth to. For many people, a perfect family is when all the members are at the table, safe and sound.
You can learn one crucial lesson after you read this article. Two girls, a lesbian couple, adopt three little boys.
Lesbians adopted three brothers.
The story starts in 2013 in Massachusetts. At that time, KC and Lena Currie got married. Then they realized they want a family with children. Everything changed once they attended the event from Children’s Friend in Worcester.
Both girls met Joey, who was only 18-month-old. They fell in love with him. One year later, he became part of their family.
Lena said: “We saw a picture of Joey and Children’s Friend mentioned [it] would be a good match.”
When Joey was three years, Lena and her wife received a phone call from Children’s Friend. The girls realized that Joey had a brother, Noah, only six weeks old. After a month, their family increased.
Another surprise happened! Children’s Friends again informed Lena and KC that the brothers have another brother. The third brother is Logan, who should go to a foster family, but the plan broke.
Lana and her wife were happy to accept Logan, too, since they took the two brothers.
KC explained their feelings:
“It was our gut-feeling. We were going to end up saying yes because keeping the brothers together was really important to us. When they’re older and have questions, they’ll have each other to lean on and experience that ride together.”
All of them knew how important it is to grow up with your siblings, and according to everyone, they made the best decision.
The director of abortion and family services at Children’s Friend, Veronica Listreud, said:
“It’s what you want to see happen. They’re a wonderful family. They’re flexible — they really understand the kids’ needs, the importance of maintaining sibling relationships, and the long-term impact of that.”
The Power Of Love!
The new and big family couldn’t be happier, as they made the best decision for them and the boys.
The boys call KC and Lena ‘’mommy’ and ‘’Mama’’.
“Now we can start dreaming about grade school, sports, and all those fun things. It was nice to check off a box and make it true to the world. We are their family.” –KC shared.
Lena and her wife KC believe that their story would inspire more couples to adopt children and grow them with love and respect.
The power of love is the strongest, and it is worth the effort for sure.
