After four years and two months, the wait is finally over for the Davis family. They have officially adopted the brother and sister of their adoptive son Noah, Friday morning.
Brian and Dana Davis have the utmost respect for foster parents, but they say they very best outcome is a forever home and adoption.
“He (Noah) kept saying, you know, I’m happy, I’ve got a mom and dad, but I miss my brother and sister so much,” said Brian Davis.
Nine-year-old Scottie and five-year-old Sabrina were in a foster home, to be adopted by another couple. Suddenly, that other adoption fell through.
“Needless to say, my wife and I, we tore out of the driveway,” said Brian Davis.
Scottie and Sabrina had a lively adoption ceremony, with everyone helping Judge Mark Costine bang the gavel to make it official!
Brian’s wife Dana believes it was meant to be.
“We feel that when these kids were born, that God picked us for them. They just had to go through all of this to get to it. But now they’re gonna live a happy life with a new mom and dad,” said Dana Davis.
Last year, the story of Noah’s adoption was viewed by a quarter of a million people on social media. Since seeing Brian and Dana’s journey in adopting Noah, two other couples have stepped up and are adopting, and several others are seriously inquiring about the process.
“It was just an amazing day we have waited on for a long time and the children are just so happy to finally be into a real family for life. We will be celebrating throughout the weekend and I really wanted this story to inspire others to think about adoption and for it to be a light to the Ohio Valley of good news,” said Brian Davis.
