The Young Family

Bernie and Bill Young adopted Jesse and Sara in March 2009 when the Young’s were in their 60’s  was 13 and Sara was 11.

Jesse-Sara-Young-AP-Graduation-5-2011Having a ‘forever family’ played a huge part in helping them feel encouraged and supported. As older adopted children, the Young’s knew that challenges would present themselves and relied in part to the Heart Gallery and Eckerd staff for their help and support.

 

According to Bernie Young, “it really does take a village to raise a child and we feel that the blessings will continue for years to come.”
