When this couple adopted three brothers, they knew their family was complete. As they prepared to bring the boys home, however, they got a shocking call from the adoption agency. And while what was revealed on the call may have caused several sleepless nights, fortunately a kind neighbor would step in to help the parents out.
Julie Washington and her husband B.J. lived in the state of Georgia. Julie worked as a night-shift nurse; B.J., meanwhile, was a research assistant at the University of Georgia. And on top of their jobs, the pair also juggled the care of their two young daughters, Reid and Ryan.
And family meant everything to the Washingtons: in fact, the couple were keen to expand their brood even further. However, they chose not to go down the traditional route of conceiving more babies. “We decided to grow our family through adoption,” Julie explained to ABC News in 2016.
