On May 23, 2019, Rob and Steve Anderson-McClean officially adopted 6 children after a Pittsburgh courtroom decision made by judge Joseph K. Williams. According to the couple, the adoption was an easy decision. The children had been in foster care for 5 years. Fortunately, the Anderson-McClean family fell in love with the children upon seeing their picture.

The happy couple was ecstatic to welcome their 6 new children into their home in Pennsylvania. Siblings Carlos, 14, Guadalupe, 13, Maria, 12, Selena, 10, Nasa, 9, and Max, 7, had little to no hope of staying together post-adoption before meeting the Anderson-McCleans. They now have a place they can call home and two people they can now call parents.

“I’d say our kids have brought a great kind of crazy to our lives,” Dad Rob Anderson-McLean told Good Morning America. “It’s heartwarming and so exciting to see how they connect with us and our extended family and friends.”

The couple has been through the parenting process before with sons Parker, 25, and Noah, 21.

The rarity of this story is awe-inspiring. According to the National Center for Youth Law, 75% of siblings are separated in foster care.
