“I was like ‘oh my gosh, I’m going to take her home,’” Hamm said.
Hamm went through the proper channels within the Florida Department of Children and Families to adopt; in the process, she learned Delilah had a sister named Caroline who was also in the hospital. Her blessing of one child became even sweeter. She adopted both girls.
“They’ve been through so much. They’re completely different kids. If you had met them when I met them you’d be amazed,” Hamm said.
Their days are now spent singing songs and seeking out new discoveries. Through encouragement, consistent meals, and unconditional love, the twins are thriving and meeting their developmental goals.
The twins have different personalities. Caroline is the social butterfly; she enjoys helping others, and is very protective of her sister. At 2 years old, Delilah loves turning on the charm and sharing kisses with everybody. Once Delilah finds something she enjoys, she can entertain herself for a long time.
Hamm always wanted to be a mom. She never knew adoption was the right choice until she met these girls.
“I hope when people hear my story it opens them up to the possibilities of adopting,” Hamm said.
Her days are filled with unexpected adventures and lots of kisses from these sisters who fill her heart with joy.
