Robles Family

Himon Robles was a 32-year-old bachelor when his two nieces and nephew moved into his home. Going from an uncle to a parent was an adjustment for Himon and the kids, who were used to their uncle spoiling them and giving them everything they wanted. After caring for the kids for two years, Himon and the kids - Mikayla, 15, Anastaysha, 8, and Joseph, 5 - jumped at the opportunity for adoption. Even though they were already a family, adoption gave them all permanency and peace of mind.
