Foster and Adoptive Ministry

We're in Our Late 40's and We Adopted Five Kids
I heard about a group of five siblings in the foster care system. Even though they were family, they’d never lived together. We were planning to adopt, but were only considering up to three siblings. I thought Sherri would say no. But she didn’t.

We went from zero kids to the proud parents of five while in our 50s.

Our church was with us from the very beginning. They helped us think through the decision to adopt. They helped us with the legal hurdles, the home study and even threw us an adoption party to get ready.

When five siblings came to live in our house, The Oaks was there. They helped with babysitting, grants, meals and getting kids to appointments and practices. - Jim and Sherri Howell
