Lamont Thomas, a single father who has taken in dozens of foster children over two decades, adopted five siblings age five and under last week so they could stay together in the same home.

Thomas, from Buffalo, New York, adopted siblings Zendaya, 5, Jamel, 4, Nakia, 3, Major, 2 and Michaela, 1, on October 17. Amazingly, he once fostered the siblings’ father, which is how he found out that the children needed a home.

“The kids ended up being taken into care — I believe it was due to neglect,” Lamont said. “They had them in four different homes, four different cities. They were separated for over a year-and-a-half.”

“They deserve to be raised as siblings, and that was my fight.”
