The Jones family is a loving group of a mom, dad, and six little boys. Three of the children are biological and three are adopted. Since moving to Arkansas recently, Mr. and Mrs. Jones have decided they want to adopt three more boys. But the system is running at a less than optimal speed and efficiency. According to Cory Jones, the caseworkers are great – there just aren’t enough of them.

There is an overload of children in the system needing homes, and a good supply of parents wanting to give homes to these children. But with not enough workers to match and process placement, everything comes to a halt. The Joneses haven’t given up. They know there are three more boys that belong with them, and they will push through the paperwork to make it happen.
