Home For The Holidays: Family Adoption Goes Through Just In Time


Multimedia Journalist - Julie Collins

PADUCAH - After bouncing around foster homes and living in an orphanage, Isaiah Sanders, has found a family just in time for the holidays.

Ashley and Steven Sanders were told they couldn't have children, shortly after they married in 2005. So they began exploring the idea of adoption. To theirs and the doctors surprise they got pregnant, and again and again. They have 3 biological children; Lorelei, Aurora and Aidan. This did not stop Ashley or Steven's desire to adopt. So after many years they were finally granted a child from Ethiopian.

Isaiah lived a very simple life in Africa. Living in a small orphanage, he shared beds with other children. The holidays were not an exception. He never got presents or feasted on lots of food. This year was different. Isaiah was brought home to the Sanders family just before Thanksgiving and this holiday season has been a special one for them all.
