Robinsons offer love, hope to trio of foster children

By Bria Granville

Tyra and Jerry Robinson of Lawrenceburg never thought they would have two children in their home, let alone five.


“Five kids, 5 and under is like a zoo sometimes,” Tyra Robinson said.

For nearly a year now the Robinsons have been raising three foster children along with their own two biological daughters.

Jaivon, 4, Andrew, 3, and Nadia, 2, came to the Robinson home for lack of anyone else that would care for all three siblings. 

When the children were abandoned in Kentucky, NECCO foster care social workers searched for a home and finally called the Robinsons to take them.

“My husband and I believe in helping or community and sharing hope with others so we decided to take the trio on,” Tyra Robinson said, “before these kids came to us they did not have hope or a future, but I can honestly say today that God is using us in their lives, they have a hope and they have a future.”

The Robinsons have had foster children before but never three at once along with their two young daughters, Lyrica, 5 and Harmony, 2.

Coming from broken single parent homes, both Tyra and Jerry wanted to foster or adopt before even having children of their own in order to provide a child with something they never had growing up — a good home.
