Five siblings currently in the foster care system hope they can find a family willing to keep them all together.

Good Morning America reports the children are up for adoption in Kansas after publishing a newspaper article about their unique situation. Since their story was published, the Kansas Department for Children and Families received overwhelming response for their adoption.

“Just since Friday, I think we’ve received about 1,300 emails [regarding the siblings],” Theresa Freed, communications director for the department told ABC News. “We’ve identified some possible families who may be a good fit.”

Freed was not able to disclose any information about the children’s parents or their situation. The siblings, Bradley, 11, Preston, 10, Layla, 8, Landon, 6, and Olive, 2, are active in their church and fill their time with various activities. 

They will remain in foster care until the state can find them a permanent home. “This is the most attention any single child or sibling set has received since [the agency] can remember,” Freed said.
