Colbert First Baptist youth pastor Blake Wilson and his wife, Shae, love their two adopted girls — Lauren, 2, and Lily Kate, 1.
Now, they’re about to welcome three more children into their lives, a trio of brothers from an orphanage in Peru, ages 3, 5 and 6.
Wilson met his future sons on Father’s Day, 2011.
“I didn’t realize that (it was Father’s Day) until I got home,” he said. “It was on a Sunday, our second day in Peru and our first day at the children’s home.”
Wilson was on a mission trip with about 20 members from Colbert Baptist in Peru. The crew split into three groups and basically held Vacation Bible School at various schools in the South American country. There were puppet shows, sporting events, craftwork.
Wilson said the brothers arrived at the orphanage two years ago this November, but he does not know the details of how they arrived. He said he met the two older brothers as soon as he arrived at the children’s home.
Blake and Shae Wilson are pictured with their daughters, Lauren, 2, and Lily Kate, 1.
