9-Year-Old Boy Waits To Be Adopted After Brother Finds Forever Family: 'Pick Me'

A nine-year-old Oklahoma City boy patiently waiting to find his forever family has issued a simple, yet heartbreaking plea: "I hope one of y'all pick me."

In an interview with KFOR, Jordan admitted his dream of finding a place to call home, particularly now that his younger brother, Braison, has been adopted.

Three years ago, the siblings were featured in a segment through the outlet while enjoying a day at Frontier City Theme Park.


Back then, the boys were being kept in separate group homes, but were still able to see each other.

“Oh, we like to do anything together," Jordan said at the time, "like bake and karate."

However, Braison has since found his forever family, and Jordan admitted that he doesn't get to see his little brother very often anymore.


He's currently living at a group home, but would love to one day have a loving family of his own.

“I would just like to have a family to call mom and dad or just mom or just dad. I don’t really care,” he told KFOR.

When asked where he would go if he were able to journey to anywhere in the world, Jordan simply answered, “To an adoption party for a home."


And if he were ever granted three wishes, he knows what those would be, too.

“To have a family, and family, family," he said. "Those are the only wishes I have."

Jordan, who aspires to one day become a police officer, said he wants a family to eat mac and cheese with, and to go on bike rides together.


But most of all, he admitted he wants the kind of unconditional love and support a family provides.

“The reason it’s important is because so I could have some people to talk to anytime I need to,” he said. “I hope one of y’all pick me.”

Since Jordan's story went viral, the Oklahoma Department of Homeland Security (OKDHS) has been overwhelmed with the response the young boy has received.


In an update to the original story, KFOR reported that the Department has received thousands of phone calls and online inquiries from people looking to adopt Jordan into their families.
