Just over a year ago, Seth Miller was a homeless 18-year-old teen with nowhere to go. He had aged out of the foster care system and was living in his car. His only wish was to be a part of a family.
WFAA News 8 aired a story about Seth which led to an emotional meeting with his biological sister Shyann Hunt. Her adoptive parents Robert and Ara Hunt soon invited Seth to move in with them.
“I’ve told him many times, I’m sorry for not finding
you sooner. I wish I had. I wish I knew
about you, because I would have gotten you
the minute you were born.” -Ara Hunt
On October 3, one year after moving in with the Hunts, Seth was adopted and changed his name to Logan Hunt. At 19-years-old, he finally got what he had always wished for – a family.

Nationally, nearly 30,000 young adults age out of foster care each year. These youth are victims of abuse or neglect who could not be safely reintegrated with their birth families and were not adopted. With no family or home to turn to, these youth are at high risk of becoming homeless, unemployed, incarcerated, victimized, unexpectedly pregnant, and on welfare.
Our teen population has the greatest need for loving families at this time. If you have thought about adopting from foster care, consider the benefits of adopting an older child or youth. Visit our adoption website to view all children seeking a forever family.
