5 neglected siblings find new, loving home


MORRISTOWN (AP) - Five Washington County children who were found living in filth without running water have been adopted by their foster parents.

Junior and Brenda Jordan, of Morristown, already have eight other children. They told WJHL-TV that they took in Bobby, Chyna, Maverick, Allen and Travis because they needed a home.

When the Jordans first took custody of the five in April 2010, the children did not even know how old they were. They were terrified of water and the Jordans think they may have never been bathed.

Now the siblings, ages 9-15, are in school, in good health and happy.

It's clear the love the Jordans have given the children has changed them. The Jordans say the love they get back has made them better people as well.
