Family hopes Facebook contest will help in visit to children's homeland

Brian and Lisa Forck have always worked hard, and taught their children the same. The family even won an award from a local business owner for teaching their children the importance of being fiscally responsible.

The hard work allowed the family of seven to adopt three children from Korea, and also allowed them to start a savings account that would help the entire family visit the country.

The Forcks had two natural biological, sons, Cole and Chase, when in March 2003, after a year of paperwork and waiting, they were able to add a daughter, Kaelin, to their family.

Kaelin was born in Korea and lived with a foster family for the first six months of her life. When a child is put up for adoption in Korea, an adoption plan is made by the birthparents and their children are placed with a foster family until they are placed. That method of caring for children is what led the Forcks to choose to adopt from Korea versus other countries.
