No, she's a normal human being, doing the best she can. I mean, what would you do for your best friend's/ sibling's kids? Watch them get split up
in foster homes, in different towns and different schools?
Newsworthy? Sure (local news only).
She's some kind of incredible hero? For doing the obvious, decent thing? That reaction kinda makes me sad.
So you think this is normal? I don't know anyone who would take in 5 kids on their own while being single and already having 3 kids. This is
definitely heroic and selfless. She didn't even think about it, she just did it.
It may seem like the "normal" thing to do but when you think about it it really isnt. If this were the normal thing to do there would be less kids
in foster care/orphanages. Kids lose parents everyday, not every one of them is placed with family and friends, most are put in foster care because
family and or friends can't afford to take care of them. This woman didn't think of that, she thought of the kids and her friends last wish. It is
really sweet imo.
