This little boy spent 389 days in foster care but was eventually adopted by a family who lives in the same neighborhood as his biological siblings! Adoptive mother Jay Houston made the decision to make 17-month-old Elijah a permanent part of her family after her friend adopted three of his siblings. Elijah not now gets to grow up with his biological siblings as well as his four adoptive siblings! Houston herself was adopted as a child. In an ABC interview she explained, “I’m the youngest of seven kids and I was adopted. Growing up, that’s always something I wanted to do.” What a happy adoption story for all involved.
