The couple officially became parents to all three siblings on November 23—National Adoption Day—when they legally adopted the two younger brothers.
Three young siblings found a new loving family for themselves when a Massachusetts couple welcomed them into their home with open arms. While the young brothers are once again under the same roof today, the journey that led them to this point is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. 3-year-old Joey—the eldest of the brothers—was the first one to walk into the lives of KC and Lena Currie of Sudbury. The couple met the toddler for the first time in 2017 at an event organized by the non-profit organization Children's Friend and immediately knew that he would be a good match for them.
Although they'd only seen a photograph of the then 18-month-old at the event, with a glowing recommendation from Children's Friend, they couldn't say no to the little boy. "We saw a picture of Joey and Children's Friend mentioned [it] would be a good match. He was 18 months old at the time," Lena told Good Morning America. The couple, who tied the knot 5 years ago, officially adopted Joey the following March and were reveling in the wonders of parenthood when they got a call from Children's Friend. Lena and KC didn't have to think twice when they heard about their adopted son's younger brother who was also in need of a family.
"We immediately said, 'Yes,'" KC revealed. Just about a month after the Curries began fostering Joey's 6-week-old brother Noah, they heard about Logan—the second of the 3 brothers, who was living with another foster family at the time. Although he was due to be adopted by his then-foster parents, the arrangement fell through at the last moment and KC and Lena were asked if they'd be interested in reuniting the brothers. "It was our gut-feeling. We were going to end up saying yes because keeping the brothers together was really important to us," said KC.

"When they're older and have questions, they'll have each other to lean on and experience that ride together," she added. Last month, about a year after they adopted Joey, Lena and KC legally adopted his brothers Logan and Noah on November 23—National Adoption Day. Having opened their hearts and home to the adorable brothers, the couple is fully enjoying life as their Mama and Mommy. "A lot of times Joey says, 'Hey, Mommy-Mama' -- he'll settle for either one," said Lena. "It was nice to check off a box and make it true to the world. We are their family," KC added.
Speaking of the Curries' decision to adopt all three boys, Veronica Listerud, director of adoption and family services at Children’s Friend, said, "It's what you want to see happen. They're a wonderful family. They're flexible—they really understand the kids' needs, the importance of maintaining sibling relationships and the long-term impact of that." Having become parents to all three boys, Lena and KC are not looking forward to the boys having more dance parties, celebrating the holidays, and watching them grow up together. "It's the first year and first holiday where it's all permanent and true," said Lena, while KC chimed in, "Now we can start dreaming about grade school, sports, and all those fun things."
