Couple Adopts 5 Siblings to Keep Them Together: . . .

. . . “All They Have in the World is Each Other”

 Curt and Brenda Heuer of Prescott, Arizona opened their home and hearts to numerous children in need over the past decade, fostering 52 children, CBSNews reports.

Recently, the couple adopted five of those children — siblings ranging from ages 2 to 9 — to keep them from being separated by the foster system.

“Due to the circumstances, knowing these children would likely be separated, and that’s all they had left in this world is each other – it’s just heartbreaking,” Brenda Heuer told CBSNews. “We didn’t want to see that happen.”

The children came from an abusive home, but seem to be adjusting well to their new circumstances. Boating, camping, traveling, Disneyland trips, and photo shoots with smiles in front of the family Christmas tree have been documented by CBS News.

. . . In the foster care system, these five children may have been separated – not only from their biological parents but also from one another. It is wonderful to see a family that has not only considered adoption as a loving alternative for so many children, but sought to minimize any further emotional scars by keeping the five children together.

On the average day, 415,000 children are in the foster care system, with over 650,000 children passing through the system in 2014, Children’s Rights, an independent non-profit, reports. Furthermore, 60,000 children were waiting to be adopted in 2014. . . . Read More
