A family grows through adoption

Posted: Updated:
Keith and Katherine Burnett get a few stolen moments alone on the deck,  but they're happy it's usually more like this... four children  between one year old and eleven.

Katherine was a single mom who had raised a son on her own.  After they married just five years ago, Keith and Katherine quickly opened their home and their hearts.  They saw our report about Chris and AJ, brothers who wanted to find a forever family 

A year later in a Hamilton County courtroom they officially became  a family.  

And now to the kids, it's like it's always been this way.  Last year they adopted a newborn girl, Carrington  and they are in the process of adopting a little boy.   In every sense of the word a real family with real challenges.

And they are giving their children what they need, security and love and family movie nights.  The boys are getting to explore sports and hobbies.  Chris can express his emotions well and AJ likes to use art and the written word.

The family is whole and happy a forever family.  The boys are confident they are loved, but most of the time, Chris says he and AJ don't even think about being adopted.

The Burnetts are part of a support group for foster and adoptive parents.   Email Cindy Sexton if you'd like more information. And  if you'd like to know more about the adoption process in Tennessee, we have information posted on wrcbtv.com, under the community tab.
