Sulphur Springs, TX, February 24, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Recently, CHRS is celebrating the successful adoption of Amanda and Lucy. Take two little girls, toss in a family with a lot of love to give and you have the story of Amanda and Lucy, twin sisters that were given a second chance at life. Amanda and Lucy came into care due to neglectful supervision and exposure to drugs by their biological parents, but their story didn’t stop there. The Jasmine family opened their doors and their hearts to these twin girls as a foster family. The Jasmine family had been a verified foster home with the Sulphur Springs office for two years. They had their hearts set on adopting, although they always understood and respected the role of fostering in their possibility to adopt. The family fostered Amanda and Lucy for 420 days before consummating their adoption on 2/20/18.
As most twins are, Lucy’s and Amanda’s personalities are very different. Amanda, although being the smaller of the two, is very vibrant and rambunctious and is Momma’s baby. Lucy is more reserved and loves to play independently or with other children. They both love their forever family and enjoy having a big sister and brother to play with daily. At 20 months, they do not talk much, but they are already calling their parents “Momma” and “Dada.” They have changed the Jasmines’ lives by growing their already big hearts.
So what are the Jasmines’ plan’s now that they have adopted Lucy and Amanda? They feel blessed to have been chosen by Amanda and Lucy and want to help as many children as they can. However, for now, they are closing their home to more children until they can get a larger house. Then, they will eagerly re-open their home to more children. They have a lot of love to give.
There are many children like Lucy and Amanda still waiting for a family like the Jasmines to provide them with stability and unconditional love. In 2016, the Sulphur Springs office of CHRS helped approximately 27 children find their forever families and consummate adoptions and in 2017 they helped approximately 36 children. The staff believe in achieving the permanency plan set out for each child, whether that be reunification with biological parents, placement with a relative or adoption by a foster parent; positive outcomes are the goal for every child in CHRS’s care. If you are interested in fostering or adopting a child you can attend the next monthly Foster Parent Orientation, March 7th from 6-8pm at 521 Main St in Sulphur Springs, TX 75482.
