FOREST, Virginia — For a foster child, finding a "forever family" may seem like an impossible dream.
But for three children living in Bedford County, that dream is now a reality.
Steven and Nicole Sloan first opened their home and their hearts to a foster child that Nicole had met while she was teaching. Afterwards, two more kids joined their family. Now the Sloans are in the process of adopting a fourth foster child. It's a full house, considering the Sloans also have three biological children.
"The kids are happy. They don't really- they don't notice difference," says Nicole. "And like, when we add another child, it's just like that child has been there."
You can meet the Sloan family in our special report, "Forever Family," airing Thursday on WDBJ7 at 6.
If you're thinking about adoption, we have a live chat Thursday night starting at 6 p.m with Dawn Caldwell and Chasity Fitzpatrick from the Piedmont Regional Office of Social Services. They will be available to answer your questions.
