Faith and Andy: Looking For Concurrent Family

Usually, at this time of month we feature children who are looking for adoptive parents. But the county also places children into concurrent families. We take a look at what that is, and an adorable set of twins looking for a concurrent family.

"We got them when they were six weeks old. So we've had them little over a year," says foster mom Cindy Cox.

Twins Faith and Andy are 15-months-old, and filled with energy.

"We dance. We put on a little Herb Alpert music and we dance. Tomorrow we're going to the hot air balloon races. They both like to play in the bathtub, they like to play in our backyard, they like to play in the dirt."

The twins first came to Cindy weighing less than three pounds. She describes teh year as wonderful, but at times, because they were so medically fragile, the past year was tough.

"Now they are doing very very well. They are growing appropriately, they are hitting their age markers their age appropriate milestone markers right on task. They're happy, they're healthy and they are doing very well."

Andy and Faith are looking for a concurrent family. To foster them, and be considered to adopt the twins if they cannot be placed back with their birth family.

Cindy says she has big hopes for the children, "I hope so much for them. I would hope that they would be with a family that would just play with them, expose them to everything that the world has to offer."
