KC and Lena Currie, of Sudbury, Massachusetts decided to adopt after seeing a photo of then-18-month-old Joey at an adoption event hosted by the nonprofit Children's Friend.

The couple knew right away that Joey would be a great fit for them.


Little did they know that they would soon be adopting 2 more little boys.

Lena told Good Morning America about their decision to adopt Joey.

"We saw a picture of Joey and Children's Friend mentioned [it] would be a good match. He was 18 months old at the time."

Baby Joey officially joined the couple the following March and quickly settled in. The three were getting used to life as a family when Lena and KC received another call from Children's Friend.

It didn't take long for the couple to decide to take in Joey's youngest brother when they heard he needed to be placed in a foster home.

Noah was only 6 weeks old at the time. Around a month after he came to live with the Curries, they also heard about the boys' middle sibling, Logan.

Logan was supposed to be adopted by the foster family with whom he was currently living, but those adoption plans fell through at the last minute.

When KC and Lena heard that Logan also needed a home, and Children's Friend asked if they might be interested in reuniting the brothers, the didn't hesitate to say yes.

KC summed up their thought process.

"It was our gut-feeling. We were going to end up saying yes because keeping the brothers together was really important to us."
"When they're older and have questions, they'll have each other to lean on and experience that ride together."

During last month's National Adoption Day, November 23, KC and Lena officially adopted Logan and Noah.

KC described the feeling of making things official.

" It was nice to check off a box and make it true to the world. We are their family. "

Lena said that the boys call them Mama and Mommy.

"A lot of times Joey says, 'Hey, Mommy-Mama' -- he'll settle for either one."

Veronica Listerud, director of adoption and family services at Children's Friend, praised the Curries for their flexibility and willingness to bring the boys back together as part of their family.

"It's what you want to see happen. They're a wonderful family. They're flexible—they really understand the kids' needs, the importance of maintaining sibling relationships and the long-term impact of that."

It can always change for the better.

Just ask any lottery winner.

Sadly, life can also take a turn for the worst and leave people shattered beyond repair.

Watching someone's life fall apart in a short amount of time is difficult.

You have to wonder if there really is such a thing as karma, bad luck, or Voodoo.
