The kids had to change around 16 foster homes in a period of 5 years since they had initially entered the system back in 2016. They were looking for some kind of stability and an illusion of a family home that could provide them with the basics, basically what the majority of the kids in the world have for granted.

However, they had to spend nearly 5 years together, traveling from one home to another until Darryl Andersen stepped in and saved the day! Darryl from Vernal, Utah, was a single dad himself, having three kids of his own when he learned about the three siblings.

Their heartfelt story moved Darryl who as a father himself understood the importance of a family and of a stable home for the young children, and immediately decided to act.

So, after considering all the logistics himself and having a very serious conversation with his own three kids, decided to meet the youngsters and offer them a permanent home. The adoption process started and Darryl was thrilled!
