Last year, Days of Our Lives alum Jen Lilley (Theresa Donovan) revealed that she had also become a foster mom to her adoptive son's biological brother. Lilley revealed that she was also hoping to adopt him but just noted on Instagram of an upcoming custody abttle as the boy's aunt intends to fight for custody.

"I cried tears of love the moment I met this little one. Having my son’s younger brother in our house has been one of the most beautiful blessings of my life. Seeing the boys interact, growing as a family, and celebrating all of this little one’s milestones to date is more than I could ever ask for or imagine.
We had an update in his case today. A random great aunt he’s met once for less than an hour, and only after he was already 12 months old and deeply bonded with us and more importantly, his biological brother, is fighting for custody.
I’m not going to lie y’all, #fostercare is hard. It’s emotional, it’s unpredictable, but my goodness it’s still worth it. I am so grateful to know he has extended family who is also concerned about him, but I cannot fathom what it would do to both of these boys if they were separated. A sibling relationship is one of the strongest bonds on earth. And these two tots are inseparable. Driving to the meeting today, trying not to cry (totally cried twice), I had a lot of time to pray. Here’s what I know: no matter how much I love this little boy and I want the very best for him and will do my best every day he’s in my care to assure that he is loved, nurtured, and thriving, God loves him more, and created him for a life full of hope and goodness (Jer 29:11). God goes before him, watches over him, and while I think Jason, my dad, and my father in law are just about the greatest dads on earth, I have peace knowing that God is the best Dad there ever was, is, or will be. And He’s also my Heavenly Father. My concerns are not lost on Him, and He can take care of this little one, my son, my heart and Jason’s, and our entire family and friends who’ve fallen head over heels for this munchkin. Please pray God’s will for this little one. We’re thrilled that as of now, he’s staying with us and his big brother who love him beyond words. But #PSA: If you’re like so many people I talk to who say they would foster but just can’t because they’d get too attached, can I lovingly say that THAT makes you the PERFECT #fosterparent! These kids desperately need your love and attachment more than you need your heart protected. Trust me. It’s worth it."


We send our love and best wishes to Lilley and the family.
