Couple Adopts Three Biological Brothers So That They Stay Together

Choosing to adopt a child is no small decision. There are a lot of financial, emotional, and psychological factors at play when someone decides to add a new member to their family—triple all of those if the person is adopting three children.

Some people might think a couple is crazy to even consider it.

Though it may be more complicated to take on that kind of responsibility, one family feels that it was worth it a million times over.

KC and Lena Currie, of Sudbury, Massachusetts first began their parenting journey when they adopted their son Joey in 2017.

"We saw a picture of Joey and Children's Friend mentioned [it] would be a good match," Lena told ABC News. "He was 18 months old at the time."

In the following year, the two of them discovered that Joey wasn't an only child.

He had another brother: a six-week-old baby named Noah.

Noah was also in need of a family, and the Curries took him into their home without hesitation.

Though they hadn't planned on taking in a second child, it simply "felt right" to keep the brothers together.

And then they learned that there was a third brother named Logan!

At the time, Logan was already living with a foster family who intended to adopt him.

But Logan's adoption fell through and he was in need of a family again.

"It was our gut feeling," KC told Good Morning America. "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."

Children’s Friend Director of Adoption and Family Services Veronica Listerud spoke to the importance of outcomes like these:

"It's what you want to see happen," Listerud said to GMA.

The right kids found the right family.

"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."

Now, the entire family is spending their first Christmas together.

"It's the first year and first holiday where it's all permanent and true," Lena said. "Now we can start dreaming about grade school, sports, and all those fun things."
