Hundreds of people responded to five siblings’ plea to be adopted together.
Last week, the Kansas City Star posted a “family wanted” story about five siblings in Kansas who were seeking a permanent home.
The newspaper profiled the siblings, three boys and two girls: 11-year-old Bradley, 10-year-old Preston, 8-year-old Layla, 6-year-old Landon and 2-year-old Olive.
“These five siblings are in need of a loving family with an abundance of love, energy, kindness and patience,” the newspaper wrote.
Bradley was described as the music lover. Preston is the animal lover. Layla loves to dance. Landon loves to run. And 2-year-old Olive “loves to be cuddled and held… when she slows down long enough.”
Since sharing the story, the Kansas Children’s Service League has gotten a ‘viral’ response. Their email was clogged with 1,500 people expressing interest in adopting the five children, and their voicemail was filled to the max.
“This is the most attention any single child or sibling has received since (the agency) can remember,” said Freed.
The Children’s Service League says they are thrilled with the response and are looking forward to finding the kids a good home.
