Adoption: Byas and Lana

Byas and Lana have 11 adult children and many grandchildren. Four years ago they decided they wanted children in their home again so they became foster parents. Right away they began caring for three-year-old twins Leo and Sylas. While adoption was not part of their original plan, Byas and Lana were moved to adopt the twins when it became clear they would need a new permanent home. The adoption was finalized in July 2020. The boys are now seven years old and have been welcomed into their large extended family.
