The Umbria Family

Testimonial: 

In 2017, soon after becoming licensed foster parents, David and Lori attended one of the Adoption Center's Match Events. According to David, it was "by far the best event I have ever been to in my life." Why? They met 13-year-old Roberta. They instantly connected and spent the whole day together. As Roberta puts it, "I don't know how to explain it, I just gravitated, once I saw them, I thought, yeah, they're going to be mine."

Lori & David thought the same, and by the end of the day, they knew she was their daughter. The adoption was finalized in February 2018! While it was an unexpected journey, Roberta and the Umbria's found and chose each other as their forever family.

David and Lori never thought they would adopt a teenager. Today they are in the process of adopting their second daughter. A 16-year-old they met at a Match Event in 2019. Many teenagers in foster care think they have been rejected and that it is their fault. These children have a lot of love to give and a lot of love to receive. The Adoption Center works every day towards our vision of a world where no child ages out of foster care without the love and support of a family.
