Three undesired siblings who were moved into 16 separate homes eventually encounter a single father who wants them.

The kids were out of alternatives after being tossed around 16 times. They first met Darry Anderson at that point.

Every parent’s primary responsibility is to give their children a secure and nurturing environment in which to develop. Therefore, it is terrible to think that some kids may not get to experience this because of their parents, their upbringing in foster care, or other difficulties.

Meet three siblings

Miquel, age 4, Willis, age 6, and Nevaeh, age 9, are all adept at describing foster care.

The state looked after the three siblings for the most of their formative years. But when a single father came to their aid, everything was transformed.

A single dad

Darryl Andersen of Vernal, Utah, gave the sweet siblings a forever home.

It’s the touching story of a single dad stepping in to prove that with a little bit of love, anything is possible.

All in all, the three siblings have had a rough start in life.

They entered foster care back in 2016, and since then, it’s been a nightmare trying to find a good household to take them in.

In need of a stable environment

Everyone knows that kids need stability, however, for these youngsters, it’s been an endless cycle of constant change.

Andersen explained to reporters from KSL News that it was simply one house after another.

“They’re very close, and understand, you know, they’ve been placed 16 times and in group homes and so all they had was each other,” said Andersen.

Searching for a home

Between all of the foster homes and group homes, the kids changed living situations sixteen different times over the course of the five years that they had been floating through the system.

Andersen couldn’t believe it.

As a single dad with three kids of his own already, it was hard to stomach the thought.

The idea of Miquel, Willis, and Navaeh spending Thanksgiving, Christmas, and really, their entire lives without a stable living situation was too much for him to bear.

Andersen started thinking about adoption.

With so many years of experience being a father under his belt already, he knew he could do it.

Then, with the blessing of his own children, he decided to move forward with the process.

“There are kids out there in this world who don’t have a place to call home. When Christmas comes, where do they go?” he asked.

An inspiration

The world would be a better place with more people like Darryl Andersen.

He even has a life philosophy that will really make you think.

“One of my main motivations is, I feel, like the saying says, because I have been given much, I too must give.”

Now, Andersen is once again raising three youngsters up to adulthood, just like he did before with his own offspring.

Paving a positive future

Despite what happened to them in the past, he hopes to build a positive foundation for them to thrive as they continue to mature.

“I want them to understand that the past is the past, and they get to make their own future, and it all depends on them,” said Andersen.

He makes it clear that the door is wide open for them.

The kids can go anywhere and be anything that they want to be. The world is full of beautiful hopes and dreams, and he wants to make sure that they see all of the amazing possibilities.

A loving dad

Of course, Andersen downplays his part in the process, but his kids see it differently.

“We all love you more than the earth,” the kids said to Andersen. “It’s because you’re a good dad. We love you so much”.

These siblings will have many bright days ahead in their forever home. Hopefully, this story inspires others to consider opening their hearts and homes to children in foster care as well.
