Paralyzed Man Adopts 5 Foster Children, All Girls. They’re “Our Daughters Forever”

Chris and Emily Norton have every excuse not to be foster parents

They are young – 27 and 26, respectively. They have been married for only a year. And Chris has been paralyzed for seven years from a football injury. But the young, determined couple told Yahoo News that their Christian faith keeps them strong and gives them a desire to serve others in need. The Nortons recently adopted five daughters from foster care, ranging in age from 3 to 20, according to the report.

“They just bring so much energy to our lives — there’s never a dull moment,” Chris said. “We’ve been out in public, and people will just stop us and ask us, ‘Are these your kids? Please tell me these aren’t your kids.’ ”

Their oldest, Whittley, 20, has known Emily since high school when her now-mother mentored her, according to the report. The family said they adopted her as an adult in December after serving as her foster parents.

Two months later, the Nortons adopted their younger daughters: Ava, 10, Liliana, 8, Isabella, 6, and Ariana, 3, who are biological sisters, the report states.

In total, the family said they have fostered 17 children so far.

“We were able to grow our family this year, which was really special, and make it just official that they are our daughters forever,” Emily told the news outlet. “It’s been an absolute joy to be able to be there for these kids, through hard times, through good times.”

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
