Despite believing he had ‘retired’ from taking care of children after his older children moved out and started families of their own, Thomas jumped into action when he learned five siblings needed a place to call home.

After getting re-certified, the father applied to foster with the intent to adopt to prevent the siblings from getting split up again; they had been separated for approximately 18 months – in four different homes, in four other cities – due to neglect.

Thomas fostered the brothers and sisters for two years and eventually adopted them together, describing them as ‘lovable kids’ who are ‘very affectionate.’ The father added: ‘They deserve to be raised as siblings.”
