Black Couple Fosters a Boy No One Wanted to Adopt, Learning Love Has No Color

After six years in foster care, 12-year-old Andrew found his forever home when Kevin and Dominique Gill, from Tennessee, welcomed him into their family in 2018. Andrew’s parents’ parental rights were terminated, and while his siblings found adoptive homes, he remained in foster care until the Gills stepped in.

Initially reserved and distant, Andrew gradually warmed up to the Gills, finding common ground with their son, Joc, over shared interests like video games and snacks. Despite not intending to adopt, the Gills became determined to give Andrew the love and stability he deserved.

After spending over a year with the Gills, Andrew left, but the bond with Joc remained strong. When Andrew’s second adoption fell through, the Gills knew he belonged with them. In a heartwarming surprise, they asked Andrew to join their family, to which he eagerly agreed.

Despite challenges and initial reservations from others, the Gills embraced Andrew wholeheartedly, recognizing him as their son alongside Joc. Their unconditional love transcended any barriers, showing that family is defined by love, not blood.

Dominique emphasized that love knows no color, affirming Andrew’s place as their son. Despite any challenges or traumas Andrew had faced, the Gills saw his worth and embraced him fully.
