When I reflect on my childhood, I recall safety and love. I was made aware that I was part of a family that adored me and only wanted the best for me from birth. Regrettably, not all children enjoy this level of security. Some children grow up in shelters and adoption homes, unaware of the joys of having a true family. Three brothers, fortunately, will know this for sure this Christmas after being adopted by KC and Lena Currie of Sudbury, Massachusetts…..

Joey, 3, Logan, 2, and Noah, 1, biological brothers, were able to settle into their new forever home together on November 23 – which also happened to be National Adoption Day.

KC and Lena began their journey as adoptive parents one year ago, when they adopted Joey legally (who was two at the time).

According to Good Morning America, KC and Lena first spotted Joey at a Children’s Friend event.

The adoption procedure

 

“We saw a photo of Joey and Children’s Friend suggested it might be a good match,” Lena explained. “At the time, he was 18 months old.”

They eventually adopted Joey in March. However, that was only the beginning.

The Curries received a call shortly after that from Children’s Friend informing them that Joey had a 6-week-old brother, Noah, who also required a home.

KC and Lena said yes immediately, only to discover a third brother, Logan, whose adoption into another family had fallen through. The Curries took this as a sign that someone was attempting to communicate with them.

Logan joined his brothers more than a month after welcoming Noah into their home.

“It was a gut feeling,” KC explained to GMA. “We were going to say yes because we needed to keep the brothers together. When they become adults and have questions, they will have each other to lean on and share the ride.”

Of course, parenting three children under four has not been easy. Still, KC and Lena have done an incredible job accepting responsibility for these brothers.

They will not only be able to grow up with each other now, but they will also benefit from having a family that loves them.

“This is the first year and holiday where everything is permanent and true,” Lena explained.

“Now we can fantasize about elementary school, sports, and all those other enjoyable activities,” KC added.

What an uplifting story! And one that has brought tears to my eyes.
