These Four Brothers Were Adopted by Neighboring Families!

This is such a beautiful story! Julia Washington and her husband already had two little girls, but they decided they wanted to grow their family. Instead of conceiving again, the Washington family decided they wanted to adopt children who needed a forever home. That was when they met Michael, Jess, and Camden, three brothers who had been in foster care for over 1,200 days. It seemed like a happy ending was in store for all, until Julia was informed that there was a FOURTH brother who needed to be adopted. You have to see how this heart touching story turns out! It will truly make your day. Watch the video below for the whole story.

When the case worker for Michael, Jess, and Camden pulled Julia aside and asked her if she was interested in adopting the fourth brother, Julia didn’t know what to do.

Growing their family from two kids to five kids was a challenge enough (both mentally and financially), but to make matters more complicated, middle brother Jess has cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is a congenital disorder that affects movement, control over muscles, and posture; it is, sadly, incurable and something the Washington family will have to support Jess through for most of his life.

Julia knew adding a sixth child would be detrimental to the family, which was the opposite of her intention when she and her husband set out to adopt.

And then something wonderful happened.

Julia’s friend and neighbor, Jay Houston, heard about the situation that the Washington family was in. Jay, herself, was adopted and had four adopted children of her own. So when she heard that the youngest brother would be over a thousand miles away from his siblings, she knew she had to step in and help.

And just like that, Jay officially adopted 17-month-old Elijah. Despite the fact that the brothers will not be growing up in the same house, thanks to the kindness of Jay and Julia, they will be able to grow up together. A truly heartwarming ending to this story!
