Waiting Child Success Story

Posted: Updated:

It was April of 2010 when NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert first met three beautiful sisters. They were hoping to be adopted together.  Mia said she liked to read.. especially the Bible.  Hailey enjoyed singing... and Madeline loved animals.  Well, when this story aired on NewsChannel 8, the right family was watching.  

"Monday morning, first thing, I started calling and checking into them."

That call to DHS led to a finalized adoption just a few weeks ago.
So, we invited the family to come tour NewsChannel 8 and see how everyone's doing.

Since the girls are Choctaw, their new father, James, is anxious to share his Choctaw ancestry with them.

"We'd like to learn a lot, like the language, we're thinking about getting online and learning the language and start talking Choctaw a little bit."

James and Judy say there have been adjustments, but day by day.. their family bond is getting stronger.  The girls say they're extremely happy.

Mia says she enjoys just being a family.
"I enjoy our summer because we all get to be togther."
And, Hailey thinks it's great her parents plan so many fun things.
"We go swimming, play in the splashpad and sometimes we go to the park."

And, Madeline, who's the youngest loves animals.  So, there is now a new addition in their home.
"We got a little kitty yesterday.  And, what color is it?  White."

Judy and James say the girls have fit in so nicely with their older children... and they strongly recommend other empty nesters to consider adoption.  As a mother, Judy appreciates their affection.

"They're wonderful, the hugs and you can't beat the hugs and kisses and the good night thing."

For this family? It's a new beginning.  Children with a "forever" home because a mom and dad opened their hearts and their home.

NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert hopes you'll call DHS Child Welfare to find out more about the adoption program.  The number is 918-581-2033.
