When thinking about their future family, Adam and Karen Owens always wanted children. They never dreamt that there story would end in such a unique, large family. Watch their adoption story and how tragically losing their second child Gavin, changed their outlook on life.

Days after returning home with newborn Gavin, the couple realized that something wasn’t right. Gavin was diagnosed with a terminal case of mitochondrial disease. Adam and Karen were devasted to lost their son in November of 2009.

Instead of giving up after this loss, the couple looked into child adoption within their community foster system.

When Adam, Karen and their daughter met a young girl with special medical needs, “it just clicked that this child has no family and that we had to be that family.”
