Summerton Woman To Finalize Four Adoptions

Summerton, SC (WLTX) -- This November marks National Adoption Month, andthe South Carolina Department of Social Services will be marking the occasion by finalizing adoptions all over the state.

"I love them. They're good kids," Linda Simmons said.

Simmons remains busy.

She holds down two jobs and takes care of six children, four of which are adopted.

"When they came they were a handful but they got used to me and I got used to them because I never had two at one time, it's usually just one," she said.\

Simmons has been keeping foster children for about a decade.

"I just kept going. And going, and going, and going," Simmons said.

But they could only stay for about two years...

"The most difficult part is letting them go, it's very hard," she said. "Once you get attached it's very hard to let them go."

But that isn't the case this time.

Triplets;Imaniee, Nimiayah and Donnie plus their little brother Donovan will officially be part of the family tomorrow once their adoption is finalized.

"Mostly I'm just looking forward to the judge signing the papers and saying, 'You're free to go,'" Simmons said.

Although work can be exhausting, being a full-time mom makes it all worth it.

"It's been a job, but it's been fun," Simmons said.
