Terri and Michael Hawthorn have four biological children and two adopted children, but there was still plenty of room in their homes, and hearts, for seven more children, siblings, that they adopted out of foster care, after being their foster parents for several years.
According to Dayton Daily News, “The couple, who has four biological children who are grown, adopted siblings Korgen and Haizlee in April, then worked to adopt a group of seven other siblings, who were not related to Korgen and Haizlee. The adoptions were finalized Dec. 3 after nearly three years in foster care.”
