Robert, Carter, a single dad from Ohio adopts five siblings because he did not want them separated. Mr. Carter said he was already fostering the three boys, but decided to adopt them all when he saw how they cried after the visit with their sisters.
The siblings were reunited in one home. The children had a home and a loving dad who promised to be their dad forever.
Providing a home and a family to the children did not only meet an emotional need; it may also have increased their chances of success later in life.
