BUFFALO, N.Y. — Lamont Thomas has fostered more than 30 children and adopted close to a dozen.
But Thursday was extra special. He adopted five siblings — ages 4, 3, 2 and 1 — so they could stay together, WGRZ reports.
A 2 On Your Side camera was inside judge Lisa Rodwin’s courtroom for the special adoption ceremony.
“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.”
Thomas says he will make sure the children thrive and have a great future.
