Lamont Thomas is a long-time foster father and he’s just added five more kids to his family by adopting a group of siblings all under the age of five. Thomas has fostered more than 30 kids over the years, including the father of these siblings, and that’s how he learned about their plight.
The kids had been separated for over a year-and-a-half and had been in four different homes in four cities before Thomas took them in as foster kids two years ago. But as of this month,Zendaya, five,Jamel, four,Nakia, three,Major, two, and Michaela, one, have officially become his children and he’s a father of 12.
“I wanted to be the difference, I wanted to make a difference by being a difference for these youth,” Thomas explains. “They deserve to be raised as siblings, and that was my fight.”
