Dorchester County mother shares her story

Adoptive mothers love their children just the same

Posted: Updated:
Mothers everywhere are being celebrated and honored on Sunday for giving the gift of life. However, there are also some mothers who didn’t give life to their children but love their adoptive children just the same.

Rene Myers was told she’d never be able to have kids. Myers proved doctors wrong. She and her husband, Ricky, were able to have two children but they have been loving parents to so many more.

“There are a lot of children out there that need to be adopted, and I'll be honest, they're so many in foster care that we're open. I mean we have people calling us constantly,” said Myers.

Through the years the couple has adopted and fostered numerous children, providing a loving home that wasn’t available to them. 

“Each and everyone single one of them is different and their very special, and it humbles me to know that God would allow me to be their mom. And would allow me to allow me to love them everyday

The couple has even taken children who are terminally ill.

“They need to have love and they need to have life and after that praise God they are with God,” said Myers. “If your heart is open and your husband is willing then I would say look into adoption. You’re already loving your children but what a blessing it is to love someone else's child that can't love them.”
