Thomasville couple turns to Facebook for adoption
THOMASVILLE, N.C. — A Thomasville couple is turning to Facebook, hoping the social media site will help them complete their family.
Brad and Love Hulin aren’t able to have kids. For the past, year they have been working with an adoption agency, but so far they haven’t had any luck.
“It was like a flat line, nothing happened, waiting is the hardest part because you have no control over it,” the couple explained.
The husband and wife decided to give Facebook a try to created a page titled “Love & Brad’s Adoption Journey.”
In one day the page has received more than 700 likes.
“We are ready, really, really ready,” Love explained.
Family and even strangers have started sharing their story.
“People comment and say they are praying for us and I’m like ‘Who’s that?’ She’s like I don’t know who that is. I’m like let’s just hope they share it with their friends and hopefully it will keep going on and on,” Brad explained.
This hopeful mom and dad have proven they’re patient.
“Every holiday, every event, you think about how fun it is going to be and the things you are going to get to do,” Love explained.
If it’s their Facebook page that helps the them become parents, then it’s a post that was worth it.
“It would be the greatest gift, that’s all I can say,” Brad said.
FOX8 talked to the Hulin’s adoption agency, Independent Adoption Center, who said they’ve had clients find a birth mother through Facebook.
If Facebook works for the Hulin’s, they will still have to go through their agency to do their the legal paperwork.
