When 29-year-old Barry Farmer decided he wanted to be a foster parent eight years ago, he says he didn’t expect to end up as an adoptive father to three young boys, WRIC reports.
“When someone calls you dad, you’re like, ‘who me?’ I just like taking care of children,” Farmer told the news station.
However, Farmer did believe that everyone deserves a family, and being family doesn’t mean you have to look alike.
Still, he acknowledges that he and his boys 14-year-old Darrell, 12-year-old Xavier and 6-year-old Jeremiah did get a few stares when they went out together. Still he says, they are just a typical family.
“In this day in time when it comes to family, and seeing color or seeing unity and belonging, and that’s what I was hoping to accomplish with my family anyway,” Farmer explained. “When I have them now I can’t imagine them anywhere else, and it’s a typical family. We may not look alike, but it’s a typical family. I just want them to be someone that I can be proud of and they can be proud of and that’s all it takes.”– Read more at Mediablackoutusa.com (Link in bio)
