“Fate has a strange way of making plans.”― David Levithan, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares
Paulo Coelho once said that the universe turns your dreams into reality if you really want that.
A lesbian couple from Massachusetts wanted to adopt a child, but they ended up with three beauties. This is an inspiring story, and it will definitely make you cry.
KC and Lena Currie got married in 2013. They wanted a kid badly, and adoption is the first thing that popped in their mind.
In November, 2017 the couple adopted Joey. He was just 18 months back then. The first encounter went really well, and KC and Lena wanted to adopt him.
They did that during a Children’s Friend event in Worcester. The adoption process was completed in a few months. The boy was officially their son by March, 2018.
A call from Children’s Friend changed their lives completely. Lena and KC were told that Joey’s little brother, Noah, needed someone to take care of him, too. Noah was just 6 weeks!
KC and Lena didn’t even think twice.
The story doesn’t end here. Children’s Friend called again. Noah and Joey had a middle sibling. Logan has been living with a foster family, but no one has filed an adoption application.
Yes, they got him too!
“It was our gut-feeling. We were going to end up saying yes because keeping the brothers together was really important to us. When they’re older and have questions, they’ll have each other to lean on and experience that ride together.”
The adoption was completed in November, 2019 at the Worcester courthouse. Lena and KC are now parents of the three brothers. Their little family became really big overnight!
The boys call them “Mama” and “Mommy.” KC and Lena promised to be the best moms for the little brothers. They are already “dreaming about grade school, sports, and all those fun things.”
“It’s what you want to see happen,” Veronica Listerud, director of adoption and family services at Children’s Friend, an affiliate of the nonprofit organization, Seven Hills Foundation, explained.
“They’re a wonderful family. They’re flexible — they really understand the kids’ needs, the importance of maintaining sibling relationships, and the long-term impact of that.”
The parents are “looking forward to the boys having more dance parties, celebrating the holidays and watching the three grow up together.”
Life is suddenly better, right? These boys have a chance to live a better life now. They will grow up together. We are already crying, and you?
