Family Grown Through Adoption Builds Bonds Through Hockey

Sue France is a special mother with lots of special kids. She and her husband had three biological children when they realized they wanted to adopt. And they wanted to adopt only children with special needs. Ten adoptions later, this large family is also a family filled with fun and laughter. Many of the children are in their teen years and acknowledge that life can’t be easy for their mom. “Oh, she’s like a saint, an angel,” said Mia, the 11th-grader. But for Sue, she doesn’t see it as trouble at all. She’s completely in love with her children and is grateful to have the family life she has. “The kids are all very supportive of each other, and they stick very close together. It’s just very amazing to watch my kids, what they’ve become.”
