Meet the Watsons! Justin and Jennifer have two biological children and they adopted four siblings from the country of Moldova. WOW! When the Watsons heard about the plight of children in Moldova and the need for families, they made the decision to extend their love to children waiting for a family.
After a career in the military, the Watsons settled into civilian life in Alabama where Justin is a helicopter instructor. About three years ago, a group of orphans from Moldova spoke at their church. The children shared the overwhelming need for loving homes for orphans, especially sibling sets who often have a difficult time being adopted together. That day the Watsons decided to pursue adoption and have been on the journey ever since.
They adopted three girls and a boy. Two of the children have varying levels of special needs. All four children were abandoned soon after their births and have lived their entire lives in orphanages. If not for international adoption, these children would age out of the orphanage and be forced to live on their own. The difficulties children face after aging out are grave.
Upon arriving in Moldova to pick up their children, they learned about a new 5th infant sibling. Justin and Jennifer did everything they could to process the 5th adoption while they stayed 3 months in Moldova. However, when it was time to leave the adoption was not finalized. They will be returning soon to adopt the 5th sibling into their family. What a journey!
