5 Siblings Adopted Together After Spending Time Apart in Foster Case

After being separated while living in the foster care system, 5 siblings have been miraculously reunited after being adopted by the same family.

And, as a result of this, these unfortunate people end up being passed to and from various different families throughout their childhoods.

And, sadly, this system can prove to be a cruel and damaging experience for many children.

On any given day, there are nearly 443,000 children in foster care in the United States.

And the children suffer as a result. And, more often than not, children don’t even get a real foster home, they are, instead, sent to live in institutions or group homes.

And, as a result, they will never experience very little stability while growing up.

Languishing in foster care harms children’s wellbeing in a number of ways. The longer a child remains in temporary care, the more likely it is that he or she will experience multiple placement changes and disrupted relationships caused by such changes.

The foster system is anything but short-term.

And some never end up getting adopted.

It’s the sad reality of foster care but, children who enter the system with several siblings are likely to be separated at some point down the line.

But now, the news has broken that one family has recently gone the extra mile to ensure that this wouldn’t happen to a group of siblings.

But sadly, Thomas, 8, Carter, 8, David, 6, Gabrielle, 4, and Bryson, 2, were all separated along the way.

But luckily, a loving Texas family came to the rescue.

So they decided to adopt all 5 of them.

Joey, eleven, Sadie, ten, and Daphne, 8.

For years, they wanted to adopt due to their struggles to naturally conceive. Andi lost one pregnancy, then became pregnant with twins, who arrived early at twenty-five weeks. One of the twins, Eli, did not survive, while Joey has cerebral palsy and is visually impaired – only able to communicate through sign language.

In 2017, they began by fostering baby Bryson straight from the hospital. David and Gabrielle soon joined their brother in the Bonura family’s care, while older twin brothers, Thomas and Carter, who lived with other families, would come to the home and visit their siblings.

“One day we got a call saying, ‘[The parents] are terminating rights. Do you want them?'” Andi recalled. “We said yes.”

The Bonuras were a family of ten.

“They’re fun to be around and they’re the greatest kids. God’s hand was in it. Our family is complete.”
