10 Foster/Adoptive Children — And Counting

Papa Hue and Papa Van

“You’re family” is the frequent refrain from Papa Hue (O’Donna Hue Osbourne) and Papa Van (Van Lee) to the succession of children and teens who have made their big, welcoming house their home.

In the last ten years, the two have fostered teens Quentin, Ernest, Trevon, Diamond, Shane, Quesar, and currently Jason. “I feel like we’re racing against the clock with teens,” said Mr. Osbourne. “They don’t have much time to overcome the damage done to them.”

Today, they have two adoptive sons, Isaiah (13) and Talik (12), and are in the process of adopting their first little girl, Akasha, who they report is “a glorious handful.”
