C'mon Get Happy: Seven Siblings Finally Reunited!

posted by Heather White - 

A Florida couple are adopting seven brothers and sisters together who have been living separately in four different foster homes.

DaShoan and Sofia Olds, told ABC News that the adoption of Necia, 12, Eric, 10, Erica, 10, Zavian, 9, Dava, 8, Keyon, 5, and Reggie, 4, will become official in September.

"It's just something you had to do," DaShoan Olds told ABC News. "My wife and I were blessed with a house that was too big for us. That would be so selfish of us to have the space [and] for us not to offer our home to them. I always felt that when you are blessed, you'll be a blessing."

The dad is a high school math teacher and coach and the mom is a social worker, said they saw the story of the seven kids on a local news story. They have been married for 13 years and never had kids. 

Sofia Olds said as soon as she saw a photo of the four boys and three girls, she knew they were "the children she was meant to mother."

"Looking at those faces, I could see the sweetness and the kindness knowing anything that happened in their lives wasn't their fault and if I can do anything to keep them together, I will. It was no question."

Today, DaShoan and Sofia Olds describe their home as "full" and "happy."

"We're having a blast every day, all the time," Sofia Olds said. "I think you have to have a heart for what we're doing and we have the heart. All children deserve to have a mama and a daddy."
