The Trice Family

Robert and Latricia Trice are celebrating this month after officially adopting their two daughters out of foster care.

The adoption was finalized in April during a special ceremony over Zoom when Judge LaFlamme in Jackson County made it official.


Keva has eight children altogether, two biological and six adopted out of foster care.

She says adoption has really changed her life for the better because she has always wanted a big family. Now they’re just one big happy family.


Mary has nine children altogether, four biological and five adopted out of foster care.

The legacy she hopes to leave behind are her children. That they’re all able to grow up and make a positive difference in the world.


I adopted two teenagers– first my son, at age 14; and then five years later my daughter, at age 16. With some similarities in their backgrounds and stories, my kids are as different as they come!
Parenting any child has its challenges and joys, and certainly my children came with many of both.


My husband and I began our adoption journey with Legacy Adoption Services in the fall of 2013. The onset of this process was a great deal of paperwork, PRIDE classes, which proved to be helpful, and home studies.

In February 2014 we met our daughters, then ages three and four, at a McDonalds.


My husband and I always wanted a family. We decided to adopt from foster care after weighing all our options from domestic adoption to IVF treatments.

When we attended an orientation at Legacy Adoption Services (LAS) to see what foster care adoption was about, LAS made us feel very comfortable so we decided to proceed with them.


My name is Ivy. I was born on Jan 15 2017, and met my parents on Jan 19 2017. From the day my foster parents picked me up, I never left them.

We just didn’t know that would be the case. I was born to my birth mom and met my parents through foster care. When I was 10 months old my birth mom asked my parents to adopt me.
