A warm and loving home is something many of us take for granted. Stories like these act as a gentle reminder of the fact that many children grow up in the absence of the same. Andrew was only 6 years old when the state terminated his parents' parental rights. In 2018, Kevin and Dominique Gill opened their Nashville home to the foster child, who was just 10, at the time. Dominique told TODAY, "Andrew has four siblings who were all adopted right away" Initially, Andrew was extremely reclusive and mostly kept to himself. “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."
