5 kids get a new family, bigger home

Posted: Updated:

Todd and Melissa Melton said there was no question they would say yes when told, in order to adopt one child, they would have to adopt her 4 other siblings too.

"And we said we'll do it and we adopted 5 children," said Melissa. The Melton's began fostering after their first son was born and Melissa was told she couldn't have more of her own.

The Melton's found themselves a family of 8 living in a 3 bedroom house in Gaston County. It wasn't exactly ideal.

Their 4 boys were in one bedroom, the two girls in the other.

When they decided they needed to expand, Zack Horne of Trident Builders Inc. decided to help. His company has added a second story and 4 bedrooms onto the house for just the cost of materials.

"This is just an opportunity for me to do something that's worth while to be able to help such a fine family. They're the ones doing the humane, Christian thing bringing this family back together and we were just glad to be a part of it," said Horne.

The home is now complete with a bedroom for each child and a family room for movie nights and games. Melissa says Zack and his company are blessings they thank God for everyday.
