This lesbian couple from Sudbury, Massachusetts, adopted three brothers under the age of 4-years-old so the boys could grow up together as a family.
KC and Lena Currie had gotten married in 2013 and wanted to adopt children and start their own family. In November 2017, they decided to adopt a baby just after they saw a photo of the then-18-month-old Joey at an adoption event that was hosted by Children’s Friend, and for the couple, it was absolutely love at first the sight.
By March the next year, they officially adopted the boy. And soon afterward, the couple received a phone call from Children’s Friend. They were told that Noah, Joey’s little brother, who was only 6 weeks at the time, needed a home too.
KC said: “We immediately said, ‘Yes.’”
And just a month after he came to live with the family, they were informed that Joey and Noah have a middle sibling, Logan. The boy has been living with a foster family but was not adopted. As it turns out, Logan was supposed to be adopted by the foster family with whom he was currently living, but the adoption plans fell through at the last minute. So, the family decided to reunite the three brothers.
KC said: “It was our gut-feeling. We were going to end up saying yes because keeping the brothers together was really important to us. When they’re older and have questions, they’ll have each other to lean on and experience that ride together.”
Lena added that the boys call them Mama and Mommy, and the Curries have been praised by Children’s Friend director of adoption and family services, Veronica Listerud, for their flexibility and willingness to bring the boys back together as a family.
