The Gilbert Family
In 2003 I married by best friend. We tried to get pregnant, but it never happened. We went to several doctors that said we couldn’t get pregnant due to infertility issues I was having.
Finally in 2012, we listened to what we felt was God telling us we needed to do Foster care. I called KCSL and asked how we could become foster parents. We were looking to adopt from foster care and prayed it wouldn’t take long. We had a few kids placed with us who were able to return to their family and then finally November 14, 2012 we received a phone call asking us to take in two sisters. Of course we said yes. Over the next 3 years we cared for and loved these two precious girls as if they were our own. Finally in the beginning of July 2015 we were approved to adopt Sumaya and Sanaa. Two weeks later we found out I was pregnant. The adoption was finalized November 21, 2015 and we gave birth to our son March 4, 2016. Our family practically grew over night, but we couldn’t be happier. This is our first family photo taken July 2016.
