Adoption love: Family's holiday card goes viral for all the right reasons

Loved this story about a couple waiting for the perfect fit for their family -- whoever he or she might be. 

The couple hope their photo will encourage others to “take another look at the foster care system and give these kids that need good homes a shot,” Cara said, adding that people may be wary of taking in an older child or one who has moved around a lot.

“People are afraid,” she said. “Maybe they think those kids are going to come damaged. I really feel like they are overlooked.”

While the Taylors are realistic about what life with a child from foster care may be like, they are committed.

“It’s going to be difficult,” Cara said. “Those kids are going to come from tough situations. The biggest thing we’re looking forward to is showing them that they are loved, that they deserved to be loved.”
