Delilah was in bad shape, she had broken bones, a skull fracture and was suffering from severe malnutrition. At 14-months she was too weak to sit or hold a bottle.
“I was like ‘oh my gosh, I’m going to take her home,’” Hamm said.
She started doing all the necessary paperwork to adopt the little girl, it was during this process that she learned that Delilah had a twin sister, Caroline.

Hamm had always wanted to be a mom and she got the perfect opportunity for herself and the twin girls.
