Thomas has fostered more than 30 children and adopted close to a dozen.
He says he adopted all five because it was the only way he could ensure that all of them grew up together.
"I wanted to be the difference, make a difference by being a difference for these youth," said Thomas.
Thomas said he has been trying to adopt the kids for more than two-and-a-half years.
