A couple in Florida has adopted seven children. The children’s names are Dava, Keyon, Erica, Eric, Necia, Reggie and Zavian. The children are all siblings, and their ages range from 4 to 12.
The couple have been married for 13 years. They have always wanted to adopt a child. When the couple heard about seven children who needed a family, they thought it was the perfect opportunity to have the family they always wanted. They decided to adopt all seven children because they did not want the siblings to be separated.
The couple, whose name is DaShoan and Sofia Olds, stated that they felt an instant connection when they met the children. They also felt that adoption was something they had to do. DaShoan stated that it would be selfish to not offer their home to the children. He stated that when you are blessed, you have to be a blessing.
One would think that the couple would be overwhelmed with seven children. However, Sofia stated that the couple is relaxed. They are enjoying the children.
Blaire Bell is the adoption representative. She stated that the children were in foster care for two years before they were adopted. The children were in a good foster home. However, her goal was to find a family that would take all of the children.
The couple has received national attention for adopting the children. They have set up a gofundme to help them with the expenses that they will incur from raising the children.
