Dominique and Kevin Gill chose to open their home to a foster kid called Andrew in 2018. Their overwhelming and emotional story was expected and surprising. The child had been in state care since he was six and the parental rights of his birth parents had long since been revoked. Andrew had four siblings, all of whom had been adopted at a young age and he was about 10-year-old when he entered the home of Gill. He had a long road of recovery ahead of him after four years of trauma, reports Goalcast

Dominique spoke to TODAY about Andrew's first week with the family, "During his first week with us, he sat in his room with the door closed and looked at old pictures. He didn’t want to talk." However, Dominique's son Joc approached Andrew and asked if he wanted to play video games. The games and their common love of PopTarts brought the lads together. According to their mother, the boys have been best friends ever since. This doesn't imply that it was easy for Andrew to settle into the family. He was extremely distant from them and sometimes he would lock himself in his room. However, with the consistent efforts of the GIlls, he found a place he could really call home.
