Perry, Sue, & BJ Hart

Posted on: Sep 24, 2012

Perry, Sue, & BJ Hart

Perry and Sue Hart have a large family.  They had 4 children ages 11 to 17 when they chose to expand their family by adopting BJ from foster care.  BJ had been in 9 different foster homes at that point but Perry & Sue knew immediately they wanted to adopt him.  They had a family vote on the issue of adopting BJ and it was unanimous to have him join the family!

When BJ joined the Hart family he could not walk.  He was overeating at meals and making himself sick so Sue began to feed him 4 meals a day and things got better.  BJ had periods of stomach problems but after removing dairy and sugar from his diet it cleared up.

Taking BJ into their family was the smartest things, the Harts  say they have ever done in their 45 years of marriage.  BJ is such a smart, considerate guy.  He runs ahead of Sue to open doors for her and helps to make his parents comfortable at the end of the day.  One of his sisters would watch her dates with her brother to see how they interacted to determine if he was a keeper.

Sue began working for Bost in 2004 and Perry followed in 2006.
