It wasn't all bad

Ohio foster family adopts 6 siblings so they won't be separated

In one day, the Sanders family of Forest Park, Ohio, went from being a party of seven to a party of 13.

Christopher and Christina Sanders agreed when they signed on to be foster parents that they would do everything in their power to keep the siblings they were fostering together. Last month, that's exactly what they did when they adopted brothers and sisters Coby, 16, Christian, 14, Caleb, 13, Caylee, 12, Carson, 10, and Chloe, 9. The kids had a "rough life" before meeting the Sanders, Caleb told the presiding judge, and now, they feel safe. The children have already formed a tight bond, with Chloe and Caitlin Sanders wearing matching outfits to the adoption hearing.

The Sanders and their birth children are black, and their six new children are white, but "we're all the same in God's eyes, so the color of anyone's skin has never had a bearing on any of this," Christopher told WCPO. Catherine Garcia
