“We’re adopting a third child,” Homan said. “My wife and I lived in India for a while. It’s always been a special place in our heart.”
While the couple has been approved to adopt, the process could takes months to finalize and cost thousands. So, to chip away at the expense, Homan decided to open a Christmas tree tent at the base of the Citrus Tower in Clermont.
