It’s an incredible story that took place in Oklahoma, United States. Jordan, a nine-year-old boy moved the population during an interview with KFOR after discussing his life with a foster family. An orphan, he expressed his wish to have loving parents. “I just wish I had a family and called people daddy or mum, or just one of the two,” he confided facing the camera. Heartbreaking words that sparked a wave of emotion. Indeed, as reported by the People site, Jordan received 5,000 adoption requests after the broadcast of this interview.
Christopher Marlowe, an OKDHS Permanency Planning employee who is working on Jordan’s case has revealed that he is reviewing all the files so the young boy can finally find a home and a home. “I am reading all the profiles to select a family that he could move forward with.” he confided. For his part, during the interview the main interested party added: “The most important thing for me is to have people to talk to when I need them. I hope you choose me.” Note that at the height of his nine years Jordan has been in foster care for six years. But for now, the reason for his placement has not been disclosed.
Jordan soon placed?
“For a child placed in foster care, he has been through a lot compared to most other children (…) I am really excited to consider all the requests and I have high hopes find a home in Jordan “concluded Christopher Marlowe. The outlet clarifies that, to make matters even more heart-wrenching, Jordan’s biological brother, Braison, was adopted without him last year.
