Having a brother or sister can make it easier to settle into a new home. Leaving them behind may, in turn, cause worry and anxiety.
It also helps the children to learn better social skills when they have siblings because it helps themlearn to share things and emotions.

Besides the fact that having a sibling with whom you can share your history with will help immensely, it easier to adopt siblings rather than multiple children as you can begin the family process faster.
This couple has set a standard for adoption
Christopher and Christina Sanders, from Forest Park, Ohio, did the most incredible thing some time back.
The couple adopted six siblings at once, and that's not even the fantastic thing: the Sanders already had five biological childen of their own!

The children, whose ages ranged from 9 to 16, were being fostered by the Sanders family, who made a pact to never tear apart existing families in the system.
Luckily, the Sanders’ deal with each other met with the six siblings' hopes of not being separated when the chance of adoption came.
One of the children, 13-year-old Caleb, told the Hamilton County Adoption Court Judge, Ralph Winkler, that they felt like they are in a safe place now.
The foster siblings, Caleb, Coby, Christian, Caylee, Carson, and Chloe, could not believe that they were adopted together.
It is evident that the newly adopted children are not related by blood to the Sanders and, when asked about it, the father of the house, Christopher, said:
“We're all the same in God's eyes, so the color of anyone's skin has never had a bearing on any of this.”
The couple has set up a GoFundMe account to buy A 15-seater van, and they are the perfect picture of a happy family.
People loved and applauded the Sanders
From having 7 kids to having 13 overnight was really a courageous step for Christopher and Christina and people loved them for it.
