7 Siblings Adopted Together After Living Nearly 4 Years In Separate Foster Homes
May 28, 2020
Life surely has a funny way of making unpredictable events real. Seven siblings (yes you heard it right, seven!) Finally found a family. This seems like a fairy tale ending for a group that spent almost four years living in a foster home. The siblings were adopted by Josh and Jessaka Clark from Georgia.
These seven siblings had to endure 1,359 days in foster care before they were adopted in a home located in Effingham County, Georgia. In settlement cases where there are a large number of siblings, they will rarely end up under the same roof. Josh and Jessaka Clark heard of the siblings' story and were certain they were destined to change this narrative.
The Clarks already have a biological son but already knew back in 2015 that they had the desire to adopt more children, reports Newsner. Embarking on their journey to fulfill their adoption wishes, they felt the strong need to bring all seven children together as it should have been from the beginning.All photos were used with the explicit permission of Jessaka Clark/Facebook
In August 2016, the siblings moved in with the Clarks as they waited for the court to make its final decision on the case. According to confirmed reports by Fox News 23, Jessaka revealed that the law officially recognized the seven siblings as part of the Clark family as of May 9, 2017.Photo By Jenna Davis Photography/Provided By Jessaka Clark
The proud family went to social media and posted an image of the siblings plus their biological son in the courtroom. They held boards explaining that they had been adopted and the Clarks' biological son held a board stating that he had new siblings! Jessaka wrote a caption on the post attached to the image saying that the state of Georgia had seven fewer children in foster care.All photos were used with the explicit permission of Jessaka Clark /Facebook
The Clarks were proud to have a huge family of ten members namely: Jessaka, Josh, Noah, Maria, Katerin, Elizabet, James, Guillermo, Kristina, and Jason. Eight kids, a father, and a mother made the Clarks think their family was complete and happier than ever. But it wasn't over yet!
According to Newsner, the Clarks received a call from the adoption agency which gave them a big surprise: there was an eighth sibling. The Clarks didn't hesitate to do what they needed to adopt the little girl, so the family has again grown! The Clarks showed just how much love and compassion the human race has to offer. The act of kindness when they decided to bring in all the siblings together cannot be quantified.
We need more people like Josh and Jessaka. Does this story touch your soul? How about you spread it and let the world know that they can join the bandwagon and make the world a better place.
