Since the segment aired...Jeremy got what he needed. Debbie and Roy Applebee welcomed him into their lives...and very large family.
"He came here and everybody just accepted him. He just blended in as a member of the family from day one," Debbie said.
"That was my biggest wish for Christmas was to have a family and now I've got one," Jeremy said.
After 12 years of living without children in their home...adopting a teenager was exactly what the Applebees wanted.
