What makes Oklahoma special? We think it’s got to be the people. And we meet some amazing people in our stories. Here’s another example.


Susan Oliver and her husband, Dean, live a busy life. Parents of seven children, he works in medicine and she works full-time for the Department of Human Services. You might think they’d be busy enough, but life took an unexpected turn.

Aiden and Zane, brothers with extraordinary medical needs, had been living in a facility for months when Susan decided to take in the boys during the search for a forever family. It didn’t take long before the couple knew they were called to become exactly that to Aiden and Zane, so Susan and Dean added two more. Now, Aiden and Zane have a loving – and large – family to call their own.
