The Stanleys take in kids who need help. And the kids said thanks with the best surprise.

Day by day, Adam and Becca Stanley’s beautiful household only get bigger and bigger.

Ever since they moved to Adair Park in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2011, they’ve been greeting more and more children into their family. They already had three children of their own, but to them, household is much more than merely its biological definition. To them, a family connect can extend to anyone and be as simple as welcoming someone into your home when they have no other place to run .

That’s why when they moved, they started their own nonprofit focused on mentoring youth . Whether it’s through coordinating local athletics leagues, hurling a big Sunday morning pancake breakfast, or welcoming new children in need into their home, the Stanleys have truly made an impact with the people who make their community so great.

“We actually merely want it to be a safe place for the children in the neighborhood, ” explains Becca.
