There are a lot of children in the foster care system who do not have the fortune to be put in the same family home as their biological siblings.
Due to the fact that they had spent the previous three and a half years in the custody of Child Protective Services, these brothers, Tre and Ke’lynn, are all too familiar with this situation.
They spent the most of that time living in different foster homes, which was a circumstance that brought them both a tremendous deal of sadness. Ke’lynn told one reporter as he wiped his eyes with a tissue that he was crying because “I want to see dad every day and I don’t.”
Cynthia Izaguirre, the reporter, first met the boys in November 2017, when Ke’Lynn was 7 and Tre had just turned 10.
It was difficult for Tre and Ke’lynn to remain apart whenever they saw each other since they never wanted to give up their connection.
Izaguirre got a direct response from Tre when he asked the boy whether he could have any desire when he questioned him about it. “To live with him,” was the response that the boy gave. The reporter calmed his concerns by assuring him, “We’re going to try our very best to make sure that occurs.”
One month later, a good-hearted guy read the article of the boys in Wednesday’s Child and made the decision to help the brothers in a significant manner.
Dr. Robert Beck recalled his reaction after viewing the report: “I was crying mostly because it just pulled at my heartstrings, and I felt an instant connection with the boys, and I said I’ve got to figure out a way to get these boys in my home and learn more about them.”
Since that time, Tre and Ke’lynn have been living with Beck, but there has been no official arrangement, so, they were required to wait until the adoption paperwork was prepared before proceeding and, finally, they were officially adopted later in 2018.
Tre and Ke’lynn had been anticipating this moment for a very long time, and it finally arrived and now they will be able to live together.
Tre announced a few minutes after the court made the adoption official that he and his family had been adopted. “We were adopted today, and I feel happy”. Both Tre and Ke’lynn are really lucky to have found a lovely dad to adopt them and raise them as his own children.
Tre responded with a broad grin and the words “I go home” when he was asked what would happen next.
