ERIE COUNTY, NY (NBC) — A New York man is making a big difference in the lives of five young siblings.
On Thursday, Lamont Thomas, a single dad, adopted all five children, all under the age of 5.
Thomas has fostered more than 30 children and adopted close to a dozen.
He says he adopted all five because it was the only way he could ensure that all of them grew-up together.
“I want to be the difference; make a difference by being a difference for these youths.
Thomas says he has been trying to adopt the kids for more than 2.5 years.
