“As those conversations started to happen we just started realizing that Isaiah and Nate felt just like blood brothers to us. It didn’t come naturally at first,” Knox said. “As we kind of grew together and more time went on they opened up to us more. Nate was already two, so he was able to talk and all that, so he kind of already had developed a little bit. As he started opening up to us, we really just started getting really close. They’re awesome. I can’t imagine our family without him.”
“I don’t look at them any different than when I do with Luke and Lucy James. Our family’s incomplete without them. You take one of them away, you take Luke away it’s like losing the same thing,” Knox said. “At first we did get those questions, those looks like: ‘are you just babysitting? What’s going on?’ But anybody that knows our family, anybody that’s close with us, any friends of mine loves them like they love our whole family. It’s been incredible.”
