Older children have a much more difficult time getting adopted.  That is why it was such a joy to hear that Jonathan, Madeline, and Benjamin have been adopted after spending four years in the care of the Division of Children, Youth, and Families services according to WMUR.com. The children have been through a lot of ups and downs and now they can be together forever.

The children ages 6, 8, and 10 have been adopted and are thrilled that they will never be separated again.  Their adoptive mother, Jennifer Tveter tells WMUR.com “Now they just get to be children and heal and be happy and loved, and they are so loved.  It’s not just me.  It’s my entire family.  They also have a new baby brother named Finnegan!  The three siblings were adopted by the Tveter family on Monday.  The children are beyond thrilled and little Jonathan tells WMUR.com that “It is the best day of my whole entire life.”  Madeline is over the moon saying “I feel so happy” according to reporting by the news outlet.

 

Keeping Siblings Together

 

When we think of adoption, we mostly think of little babies but there is a large need to find older children homes.  How wonderful that Jennifer Tveter opened up her heart and her home to not only adopting one older child but three siblings so that they can grow up together and not fear being separated ever again.  It’s such a great news story to bring awareness to the issue that older children need homes also.
