Man adopts 5 siblings

Being a parent can sometimes be the hardest job in the world, but being separated from your loved ones can just be as hard.

A man who understands separation is Robert Carter from Ohio, US, who was adopted at the age of 12; living apart from his eight siblings.

The 29-year-old man has been fostering three brothers since December 2018, and later discovered that they had been separated from their two sisters.

Heartbroken by this revelation, he contacted the two girls' foster home and organised a reunion for them with their brothers.

"The kids saw each other and started hugging and crying and wouldn’t let go. That was the moment I said ‘okay I’m going to take all five’,” Carter was quoted as saying.

The adoption was formalised and he is now a father to Marionna, Robert Jr., Makayla, Giovanni, and Kiontae, who are between ages 4 to 10.

The story was shared on the official Twitter handle of the adoption and foster care system where Carter was praised for his decision.
