“On the morning of July 27, the adoption was made official in Judge Ralph Winkler’s courtroom at Hamilton County Probate Court. Family, friends and the kids’ teachers were present for the occasion.”

This is a beautiful story! Adoption is one of the greatest gifts we have.


But. Guys, can I step in and say something? As the sister to 5 adopted siblings, I see the comments asking how the family “ended up with them” or where their “real parents” are.
The first question is answered sufficiently in the article, to the extent that it should be. Any other details are quite simply not the business of strangers on the internet.


As far as the second question, I have three points to bring up-First, the Rom’s are their real parents. That’s that.


Secondly, I know the commenter meant “biological parents.” We should get away from using the term “real” when discussing biological families vs adoptive families. It’s damaging to the child, and outdated.


Thirdly, it’s another question that is none of our business as strangers on the internet.

Just be happy that these beautiful babies are adopted into a loving and caring family!

If you struggled to get a child even after monitoring basal body thermometer. There is about 350,000 kids in foster care across the nation waiting for their ‘forever’ family! People go outside and spend over 50,000 to adopt… I know those babies too need family’s. I wish our kids came first! Keeping the siblings is magnificent! They are now with their ‘real’ parents!

That’s what started me 50 years ago in 2nd grade – the school librarian gave me Betsy’s Busy Summer by Carolyn Haywood – haven’t stopped reading since! Now my 8 year old granddaughter is a bookworm – we go book shopping together! A reader is never lonely! Bless school librarians

That is so true. A children’s librarian I know that sometimes it take hits and misses when recommending books. But the magic begins when it works: the right book at the right time for the right child!!! Such joy when the child comes back and asks for more!!! That’s why we do what we do!! For the children.

A son has ASD and hated reading until our local librarian showed him How to Train Your Dragon. That was the start, Harry Potter soon followed and now it’s Lemony Snicket. He’s now 10 and loves visiting our library to see what they’ve got.

It is a skill. I too have worked in a public library. Get to really know your customer and their interests. From there, I could usually find anyone, any age a book and hit the right spot. If they don’t know what books they like, expand the chat to films/tv, not necessarily presenting a book based on it, but you can form a good idea of what type of books they’d like from there. It honestly works a treat.

Green eggs and ham is all you need man. Drama, comedy, suspense, foreshadowing, unique color scheme, sort of dystopian meets disney, one of those stories you really have to read over and over to catch everything going on 10/10.
You have to know about at least ONE local independent book source. I’m aware that print media will one day disappear, but I still prefer a good thumbed book any day, dog-eared and tattered. Sparks the imagination.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KRkR8HaR9c
