A local family became whole Friday, Nov. 18.
Dawn and Paul, parents to Lance, 14, Landyn, 10 and Lukus, 7, became parents of six as they finalized the adoption of 7-year-old Natalye, 3-year-old Carter and 2-year-old Gabrielle.
For the family, it was a momentous occasion and the culmination of roughly five years of waiting and work.
“We had someone come and share at our church,” Dawn said. “And she handed out a little brochure with some children who were needing a forever family, and we were really drawn to this…As we got to understand the need, we knew we wanted to do this.”
The last names and location of the family in this story have been omitted at the request of the parents to protect the family.
