Young LDS Couple Adopting 5 Kids All at Once


The Hymas family is about to more than triple in size thanks to the opportunity this couple has to become parents through adoption.

A young couple unable to have children is about to undergo a huge change as they adopt five children, and maybe two more, within the next few weeks.

Danizza and Tim Hymas, of Rexburg, have waited eight years to have a baby, and their dream is finally coming true.

“The plan was always to have a family but a year into our marriage, I miscarried,” Danizza Hymas tells “The doctors told me I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and obviously, to not be able to have your own kids, it’s kind of a letdown.”

The Hymases considered undergoing fertility treatments but realized it would cost tens of thousands of dollars.
