Mother Creates Loving Pre-Adoptive Home for Her Six Children

January 12, 2017

Impact Stories

Constance served as the foster mother for six of her children—Elijah, 14, Elisa, 13, Elysia, 10, Ezekiel, 6, Jhaliah, 3, and Nasir, 2—before adopting them. In Constance’s home, her children have grown physically, emotionally and mentally stronger. “I have seen a metamorphosis in these children,” affirmed Terrience, their HSVS Case Planner.

Constance has provided stability, opportunities and encouragement for her children, who attend day care centers and schools that support their individual learning needs. Additionally, her children enjoy hobbies, such as karate, ballet and guitar lessons.

After noticing their collective love of music, Constance transformed their backyard shed into a recording studio. Now, their backyard is a place to practice music and enjoy barbecues during the summer. Together, they also have created new family traditions, including an annual trip to Disney World. “At the end of the day, I can’t wait to get home, and on Saturdays, it’s Family Day,” beamed Constance. “They’re my world.”
