It is heartbreaking when a child is born into this world without a mother or a father. It’s even more unsettling when a group of siblings is orphaned and sent to the foster system. It can be a long time before those kids experience what it’s like to be a family again. Not for these kids.
If you’re looking for some good news in this crazy world we live in, read on for a story that will lift your spirits!
10. Say Hi To The Clark Family
The Clark family lives in Rincon, Georgia with their 3-year-old son Noah. Raising one kid seems pretty easy unless you’ve been a parent before. When Josh and Jessaka married each other, they talked about possibly adopting a child. They had no idea how serious they were as the story continues at #9.
9. The First Child
Noah was born a couple of years after their wedding. They were blessed with a beautiful baby boy. The Clarks also realized there are plenty of children in the world who do not know what it’s like to have a loving family. They began to discuss taking in foster children.
8. Call From The Case Worker
One day, Josh answered a call from a case worker about taking on seven children into foster care. Jessaka remembers, “Josh hung up the phone and said, ‘What do you think of seven?’ and I said, ‘A 7-year-old?” Head over to #7 to find out what “seven” really meant.
7. How Many Kids?!
“No, seven kids,” said Josh Clark. The couple decided to take their time, really think about what they would be getting themselves into, and pray about the situation. The next April morning, Josh said they “woke up and said the same thing to each other, ‘If not us, then who?'”
6. The Super Seven
The seven siblings moved in with the Clarks in August of 2016 as foster children. Josh lovingly dubbed the brothers and sisters “The Super Seven” as they accepted them into their home. The new family of 10 were now sharing a 3-bedroom house. Let’s get to know the new additions to the Clark family in #5.
