"When we started this whole thing, I really felt deeply like I had this vision of these two children in my heart," Willow said. "We are the ones who believe we're lucky. They're doing more for us than we're doing for them. It's not just us doing the giving. They bring so much joy and so much laughter. We're definitely enriched."
