One Plus Three Equals Four

Justin Padgett was a fifth grade schoolteacher.  Foster parents worked in the same building and would bring Jayen into his classroom early.  Justin would take this one-on-one time with him to make sure his schoolwork was done.  Jayden excelled in school and came to see his teacher as a father figure so, Jayden asked Justin to adopt him.  There was one catch.  He had three brothers and sisters.  Justin and Kasey thought long and hard.  Kasey always wanted a big family and they couldn’t bear the thought of these siblings being separated.  Justin says there’s never a dull moment having four kids around the house.  It’s busy and full of noise and activity.  He said, “It’s absolutely the best ever” and Kasey reminds them they’ll always have a place to come back to.
