Young Boy in Foster Care Goes Viral After Saying He Wants a Permanent Home


This will make you tear up...a young boy named Jordan has gone viral receiving more than 5,000 adoption requests after saying on a news segment he just wants a permanent home:

A 9-year-old boy from Oklahoma may be one step closer to finding a forever home.

In July, Jordan touched the hearts of many across the country when he was interviewed by local news station KFOR about being in foster care. Since then, his permanency planning worker told Fox 4 that the department received over 5,000 adoption submissions.

“I’m in the process of reading through those profiles to select a family to try to move forward with,” said Christopher Marlowe, a OKDHS Permanency Planning worker who is working on Jordan's case.

During the viral interview, Jordan was asked what he would wish for if he was given three wishes. “To have a family, and family, family. Those are the only wishes I have,” the 9-year-old said.

So sweet. Meanwhile, Bethenny Frankel even offered to adopt him as well.
