Happy Adoption Day

Knight, Daymien, and Jennifer


Daymien was my kindergarten student and had been in state custody for almost 18 months. My fiancé & I decided to get licensed to foster him until DCF found a permanent placement for him because he had already been in 4 different homes just in kindergarten. Long story less long, we fostered him for 6 months & you can obviously see the outcome :) He has two other half-siblings and some friends of ours adopted his little brother. They see each other weekly. 

Daymien was six on adoption day and he is now eight.  Everyone always says how lucky he is that we did something that we had never planned on doing, but Knight and I are the lucky ones.



Do you have a photo that captures adoption in some way? Send it to us! We'd love to share it here.
