Darryl had always planned to be a dad, but he never found the right woman to be the mother of his children. In his late 40’s and never married, he decided that he wanted to fulfill his dream of fatherhood through adoption. That dream was realized when he met brothers Elijah and Isaiah, ages 7 and 8, after seeing their photo in the Heart Gallery.
Parenting seems to come naturally, as Darryl patiently taught rules and good behaviors to the boys, who needed more structure and discipline in their lives. He particularly stressed education. After just a few months of living with Darryl, Elijah went from being a poor student to receiving an award for “most improved” in his class!
