Jeanette and Thomas Montelongo

When Jeanette and Thomas Montelongo married two and a half years ago they both had children who were young adults or teens. At the beginning of last year, they decided to fill their empty nest through adoption from foster care. After first seeing their son Isaiah on the Colorado Heart Gallery, Thomas and Jeanette knew he would be a perfect addition to their family. They started the process of becoming foster parents with him in mind. The Montelongos are continuing to foster with plans of adopting again. Adding to their family has brought this large blended family even closer together.
