“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 toldFox 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.
‘The reason it’s important is so I could have some people to talk to any time I need to,’ Jordan added. ‘I hope one of y’all pick me.’
According to Fox 4, hundreds of people were touched by the child’s plea and began calling in from states all across the country to inquire about adopting Jordan, who has been in foster care for six years.”
