The Jordan Family

It’s National Foster Care Awareness Month, and we want to celebrate our families! Next up is the Jordan Family!

“Years before we made the decision to become foster parents, I had started feeling this tug on my heart every time I heard an adoption story. I just knew there was no way my husband would feel the same way I did about adopting a child. One day, I finally brought it up to him and much to my surprise; he was feeling the tug on his heart too!

We went to a CALL info meeting on June 19, 2017. After two full weekends of training and lots and lots of paperwork, our home was open for foster placements on September 21, 2017. Just 5 days after we were open, I received a phone call from our resource worker. A 2-year-old girl and her 1-year-old brother needed to be placed that day. The parental rights of the biological parents had already been terminated, so they ultimately needed to be adopted. “Are you interested?” she asked.

Of course we were.

However, I thought to myself, I should probably call my husband real quick. After a 10-second phone conversation with him, I called her back. “We’ll take them!”

We adopted them on May 21, 2018. They are so perfect for us and I would like to think we are prefect for them too.”
