Adoption rocks. That's the phrase that's being tossed around a lot this month at Try Again Homes in Fairmont. That's because November is National Adoption Month.
"The kids are waiting," Chrissy Pownell, with Try Again Homes, said. "Some of them are in shelter, (some are in) group homes. They don't care they just want someone to love them.
Do you need someone to testify to that?
That's where Terita Boone comes in.
"It fills out hearts," Boone said. "There is love there and he just filled it."
Boone, a Morgantown resident, has adopted four kids. The most recent addition to her home is Gunner.
"Gunner came to our home with the Chickenpox," Boone said about the first time she met Gunner. " They didn't have another home and we had already had them."
She said they clicked instantly.
"She's my mom," Gunner said.
Things have gone so well she's also adopted two of his brothers.
"He is a sweet loving child who loves to learn," Boone said of Gunner. "He just has a kind heart."
Don't kid yourself, they still share a typical mother and son relationship.
"One time I lied about something and I got in trouble," Gunner recalled.
Which according to the folks at Try Again Homes is okay.
Boone said someone just to have love in her heart.
"I said if I can have them in my home for that little amount of time, and show them that little bit of love that they didn't have before," Boone said. "Or maybe what a real family is like. Then it's worth opening your home to."
