Often on local Wednesday’s Child segments, our hearts are touched as we see children in need.  This is a special opportunity to see the outcome and a family who is thriving because of foster adoption.

Benji was just two years old when KXLY in Coeur D’Alene and Spokane highlighted him on their Wednesday’s Child segment. That was five years ago. At the time, Becky Kiefer was his foster mom.

A single mother of one adopted girl, Becky’s heart was attached to Benji. Together they experienced doctor and hospital visits, saw highs and lows, and grew. “When they stay with you long enough they become part of your family,” said Becky. Benji was born with a bleed on his brain that created many medical problems and developmental issues.

But that didn’t matter to Becky and her daughter. “It just made sense to make it official,” Benji’s mom, Becky, said on January 29th when they got the court’s stamp of approval.
