    nice to see those five siblings being together again once for all along with two Donners kids. Have a good time together. Obey your parents.

    How about waiting a bit to introduce into school. Enjoy at least a week together. Get to know the area and neighborhood. Give time for the kids to acclimate to culture, home, family members, etc. School can wait... for at least a bit! : )

    It's great to have a happy story like this to start the morning with a smile as big as those in the photos. Thanks Donners and DN. And may the Donner family be blessed in all they do.

    This really is a great, inspiring article which makes me want to go and do likewise--or, makes me feel like I would if I could.

    I love the way you are introduced as "Team Donner". Best wishes and God bless you in your transition to that team. You are an inspiration.

    What a great story. The Donners are deserving of any and all blessings that are coming there way. It would be nice to have a follow-up story in 6-12 months or so. Also deserving of gratitude are the foster families that have prepared these 5 children to be ready to be reunited with their siblings, and to be adopted into such a wonderful family.

    What a wonderful story. Seeing how these parents have a lot of children to clothe, do they need any particular items? I would be williing to send clothes my 14-yr-old son has outgrown which are still in like-new condition.
