A South Carolina family, Felicia and John Melville, have four biological children and seven adopted. Why so many? They saw a need and stepped in to help. They began by fostering children – over 50, in fact.

In fostering, they began to know and love the families and the children. They continue to have contact with the families of those who have been reunited. But, for those whose parental rights were terminated, the children needed families and the Melvilles already loved them – so it was only natural to adopt them.

The Melville home is bustling with kids of various ages and various stages of life. Many have issues related to broken homes in their early lives, but these kids all know they are loved and have parents who won’t ever leave them now.

The family is preparing a new home study to qualify in fostering again.

Watch their story here.
