Adopting both Daisy and Everett has been a dream come true for Nordonia residents Lauren and Hector Quiles, and one that has been prayed for multiple times. Their adoption journey officially started a few years ago with a few bumps along the emotional journey, and adoptions that never came to fulfillment. Lauren and Hector were about to give up on their dream of having a child when they got a call from Open Arms Adoptions based out of Kent in October 2021. Daisy’s birth mother chose Lauren and Hector to be the adoption parents. Just before learning this, their hope of becoming parents lessening, the Quiles did not apply for adoption funds/grants.
