Wow I remember this episode they fostered all these siblings saying how they didn’t want to break them up and that was the main reason behind Extreme Makeover even wanting to help them. And to find out it was just months after the show ended they gave up on raising them with no reasonable explanation, is saddening.Daily Mail Reports:
A North Carolina couple featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition are accused of kicking out five foster children after the show built them their dream home.
Devonda and James Friday were given a 3,900-square-foot home near Charlotte in North Carolina in December 2012 as part of the popular renovation show.
The couple, who already had two children in their care, were praised by the show having just adopted an additional five young siblings so they did not have to live in separate foster homes.
The show recruited 3,000 volunteers to help renovate their house with extra rooms after the couple had converted their carport into a makeshift bedroom to make room for everyone.
But the two eldest children, Kamaya and Chris Friday, have now claimed their adopted parents kicked them out soon after the show aired, WS-OCTV reports.
Their younger siblings are also no longer living with Devonda and James – and are believed to be all living separately.
‘I felt like they were my mom and dad. I loved them like they were my real parents. I did,’ Chris told WS-OCTV.
‘What they did to us was just wrong. (They) threw us all out.’
