Robert is a single man who adopted three young boys from a family of five. Normally that in and of itself would be a great story. But amazing as that is, Robert then went above and beyond to keep a family together.
Meet Robert Carter, a single man from Ohio, who is now the legal father of five children he chose to adopt. While waiting for the adoption process to be approved, he worked hard to buy a new home for his new family.
“I’m relieved because I tried to go through the process before and it didn’t work out, but now I’m just happy that it’s over and I’m their dad for the rest of their life, and they know that they’ll never have to go through what they went through again,” Carter told FOX19.
Carter started fostering the 3 brothers Robert Jr., Giovanni, and Kiontae in December 2019. Their 2 sisters, however, Marionna and Makayla, remained in the foster system and the siblings had been separated for six months.
“We met up for visits, and all the kids were crying,” Carter said. “They didn’t want to leave each other, and at that moment, I knew, ok, I have to adopt all five.” (H/T – Mike AKA Proof)
Take all the actors, all the athletes, and all the entrepreneurs, and none of them would be a bigger hero than Robert Carter.
