It all started with Lauren Akins, Thomas Rhett's wife, taking a trip to Uganda. As fate would have it, she met a little girl who was an orphan. She and Thomas Rhett knew several people who were looking to adopt and she told TR that they have to find a family for this precious little girl. Instead of finding a family, Thomas Rhett volunteered their family to adopt, and Will Gray became a member of the Akins family.
A short time later, Lauren found out she was pregnant, and along came Ada James.
Watch as Lauren tells her story to Southern Living.
Lauren also talked about how they chose the names Willa Gray and Ada James.
And all of this is the subject for Thomas Rhett's new song "Life Changes!"
