Nobles Family

Anita and Jeff Nobles were married for 15 years before they grew their family by adopting siblings Imani, 3, and Tyson, 2. Parenting two toddlers is a challenge. Anita and Jeff say that getting through the day and putting the kids to bed at night is a little victory. For the Nobles, parenting is all about trial and error and thinking creatively in order to ensure their children feel safe and have stability. Anita created a visual schedule for the kids to help them recognize family members and adapt to a consistent routine. They have also relied on the support of their family, faith and community throughout the adoption process.
