Since we first met we knew that adopting was going to be part of our lives, Luke and I (Sylvia) discussed adoptions since our first date and now 10 years later we are going to be permanently receiving 3 siblings this summer. Arlene and Tosh are blood siblings and Wenona came with her mother from her first marriage. Arlene and Tosh are 9 & 6 and Wenona is 6, Wenona came in when she was 3 and they were all raised together. Earlier last year (2016) we agreed to temporarily host Tosh for 4 weeks in the Summer of 2016. We drove to Louisiana and picked him up and stayed with him for 4 weeks and absolutely melted every part of our hearts. We always knew that no matter how many biological children we wanted we would still have room for adoption. When Tosh saw us he ran straight to us and came straight to me and hugged me & I completely lost it. Our hearts became one instantly and the same exact thing with my husband. At the time we visited briefly with the siblings (Arlene & Wenona) and we also saw them again when we tearfully dropped Tosh back. 2016 was out best summer ever. These kids have come up through a very rough childhood and have been in 3 homes, we are overwhelmed with the joy of giving them a forever home and raising them up right and giving them a stable foundation for their lives. We need donations to prepare support for them in things such as medical assistance, furniture, dental help and vision care. We will also need to pick them up and fly in with them to avoid the long drive from Charlotte to Louisiana. Donations will also help u buy them personal stuff, clothing, toys, games
