They Became My Children: Fostering to Adopt

Barry and Cindy are exceptional parents and a sweet couple. When they married, Cindy gained four step children. She always wanted to be a mother, and it was a joy to her to have an immediate family. But their attempts to add to the family were futile.

Through prayer, medical procedures, more prayer, discussion, and more prayer, Cindy was finally able to be at peace, knowing that how their future children came to them shouldn’t be a concern. Shortly after coming to peace, their family expanded.

Fostering three siblings brought solace and joy to Cindy and Barry. Three years later, they adopted the siblings. As most adoptive parents feel, these children belong with them. It really doesn’t matter how they got them—it just matters that they’re now home.
