Ivey had spent the last three years in foster care and was overjoyed to find out that Paige

Paige told the press that on the first night Ivey stayed with the family, she asked whether

stay forever.

Adoptive family reunited after three-years This is the heartbreaking moment that an adoptive

family is finally reunited after years of waiting and longing to be together.

Two brothers from the Democratic Republic of Congo were officially adopted in 2013,

but then the country suspended all exit letters, forbidding all children adopted by foreign

families to leave the country.

The Grovers had done everything right: they’d endured a lengthy court process and had visited

the boys’ home country to meet them, but they were still left in limbo.

So, all Jennifer and James Grover could do was fight.

Along with many other adoptive parents, Jennifer and James petitioned Capitol Hill and finally,

a list of 119 children were granted exit letters.

Thankfully, 7-year-old Bronson and 14-year-old Joseph were on that list, and the process

began to get them on US soil with their new family.

In 2016 it finally happened: Bronson and Joseph landed in Salt Lake City and the reunion was

Separated Brothers Get Reunited During a WFAA ABC news show, a presenter made

an appeal for help finding two young boys a forever home.

brothers in separate foster homes that were desperate to be together.

Trey and Keilan were seven and ten years old when their story was first reported and had

been in child protective custody for over three years.

For most of that they’d been in separate foster homes, and although the boys initially

needed to be apart so they could heal from their trauma, they spoke about how much they

wanted to be together again in news reports.

The boys saw each other once a month while in foster care, and they hated to say goodbye

to one another at the end of their visits.

So, one man that saw the news report decided to step up and make the boys’ dreams a reality.

Robert Beck took the boys into his home and began the adoption process.

loving family home where they can grow up together.

Just as they should be.
