Julia Washington and her husband already had two kids of their own when they decided to adopt three brothers, Michael, Jess, and Camden. Of course they knew this was going to bring in some changes in their lives, and that it was not going to be easy. The situation got even more complicated when they received a call from the boys’ social worker: the three brothers they were adopting had a 17-month-old brother, Elijah, who was also in the system.
This family could not take on another child, but on the other hand this would mean that Elijah would be 1,000 miles away from his brothers. That is when their neighbor Jay Houston, Julia’s friend stepped in and did a wonderful thing. She went through the state Child Protective Services to adopt Elijah and made it. Such and inspiring story and thanks to these two families four brothers are still going to grow up together.
