They always knew they wanted to adopt a child one day, but DaShoan and Sofia Olds of Marianna, Florida never knew their family would be so large. But when they heard about seven siblings living in separate foster homes, the couple decided to adopt them all so they could be one big, happy family.
“We looked at each other and said, ‘We’ve got to do this. It’s time. There’s no maybe, we have to do this,'” Sofia says.“It was a done deal from the day we saw the story.”
And now they’re the proud parents of Dava, Erica, Eric, Zavian, Leondras, Reginald, and the oldest, 12-year-old Necia. She says, “We thought we would never be adopted.” But now they’re all part of the Olds family and life is good for these brothers, sisters, and their new mom and dad.
