With two kids already, Lucas and Krissondra hadn’t planned on growing their family when they took in Lucas’ niece Kaitlin and her half-brother Tanner in 2015. But, just one year later, the half siblings’ adoption was finalized and the family moved into a larger home in Greeley. Just this year, they finalized the adoption of Kaitlin and Tanner’s younger half-brother, 9-year-old Colton. Lucas and Krissondra have watched the children grow and excel in their home, but they have also overcome many challenges together as a family. The hard parts, Krissondra and Lucas say, are what make them a stronger family.
