Autumn Scudder and her husband Matthew have three teenage daughters. Some might say that's enough for any parents, but they wanted more! When they found out that a 3-year-old girl named Veronica and her one-year-old brother Preston had been in foster care since birth, they opened their home and their hearts.
They began fostering the two children in December, 2015, and started the adoption process six months later. The process ended on election day, when the adoptions were finalized. Autumn explained, "Adoption is a wonderful thing. It takes people from here and there and brings them together as one family with a common goal of supporting and loving each other no matter what. American can learn from this. We are all part of the American family."
