Raising the Robinson's

I've spent some time over the past few weeks with the Robinson family in Aurora. Iola Robinson was 47 and a foster parent when she adopted two brothers and sister. When she found out about another brother and a newborn baby brother she took them in too.
"I was taught if you have no husband, you have no children. But I ended up with five." Said Iola.

Twenty years later, Iola is 67 with kids ranging from 20 to 11. All have had their issues with school and life but have been on the right track thanks to their mother, their teachers and their mentors, Zach and Jacki Montroy who have gone from school counselors to a second family to the kids. "They are the kids guardian angels." Iola said.For more photos and the whole story check out the Beacon's new pretty website HERE!
