This single dad just adopted 5 siblings under the age of five so they can stay together
Lamont Thomas, a man from Buffalo, NY, has fostered over 30 kids. The single dad recently became a father of twelve kids when he added five more to his brood – Zendaya, Jamel, Nakia, Major, and Michaela – aged 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1.
The children had been separated for more than a year-and-a-half and had spent time in four different homes in four different cities before Thomas swooped in two years ago and took them in as foster children.
“I fought for close to two and a half years just to be able to get them together, and we won, we got it,” Thomas said. “I wanted to be the difference, make a difference by being a difference for these youth.”
