Michael J. Fox said: “Family is not important. It is everything”. At the end of the day, all we want is to go at our home with the family we love. But not everyone has the luck to share a home with their family. For some people, life is a struggle for a better tomorrow. Helping others should be a basic instinct of all people. We should always aim to help the people in need.
Kansas has about 1,200 children in state custody that are seeking an adoption. That is a case with a Kansas sibling that are looking for a forever home. Because of their desire to stay together, this adopting story has set off a burst of interest like never before at the website. That the interest is high shows the fact that online readers have clicked on the story more than 4 million times after it has been posted on The Star’s website. Officials have also received thousands of requests since an adoption listing about the five siblings went viral.The future parents of the children must be prepared to deal with the trauma from their past. Adopting five children at the same time requires a couple of special conditions like a big house and enough food in the fridge. The most touching part of the story is the strong will of the siblings to stay together. Joni Hiatt, Kansas director of programs for Foster Adopt Connect says: “But that bond between siblings is the strongest thing they’ve got when parents are gone. My hope is that people expressing interest genuinely want to see these children kept together.”
Let us introduce you to this loving family.
The oldest one Bradley, the music lover, is 11. He is a quiet and shy boy, but at the same time, he is respectful, sweet and kind. He loves a good game of soccer or tetherball and his favorite subjects are math and science.
Preston is 10-year-old. He is an animal lover and outdoor enthusiast. He loves fishing, collecting Pokémon and playing tetherball in the backyard.
Layla, 8, is kind and caring and her ambition is to save sick or injured animals when she grows up. She enjoys hip hop dance and sports like baseball and volleyball.
Landon, 6, considers himself a fast runner and a hard worker. His ambition is to teach physical education when he grows up. He also loves the outdoors and going on adventures.
The youngest, Olive, loves to be cuddled and doing all things that 2-year-olds do.
And all they want is a forever home where they can grow up together. And of course, a lot of love and patience.
The reaction of people all around the world is really inspiring. “My husband and myself would LOVE to adopt ALL 5!!!” wrote Teresa Vassos from Colorado. “We have plenty of room and live in a recreational community with fantastic schools!!!!” It gives us hope that this loving family will stay together.
We really hope that this story od adoption will help the five Kansas sibling to get adopted but will also inspire people to help other children get adopted as well.
