BurlingtonPost.com says Yo Mustafa and Paul Groulx “went from zero to three children in a matter of six months”. The couple, which has been together since 1989, now cares for three boys including a 13-year old and 11-year-old twins.
Mustafa and Grouix started their adoption journey in July 2003 by attending an Adoption Council of Ontario information evening.
The sons were neglected by their biological parents and eventually placed into the care of Children’s Aid. At the time, the older boy was six years old and the twins 3-1/2. They were in foster care two years.
ACO is a non-profit charitable organization formed in 1987 by representatives of the adoption community. According to its website, ACO’s mission is to “educate, support, and advocate on behalf of those touched by adoption in Ontario”.
