Neal Shytles has spent the last 18 months in a homeless shelter, and he doesn't have any family.

He was shocked and brought to tears when he got dozens of responses from around the country. Chris Cuomo has the story.

Boy Gets New Family and New Ears

Adoption: One Story, Three Lives

Editor's note: November is National Adoption Awareness Month. Here, Michaela Pereira of CNN's "New Day" and "@THIS HOUR" shares the story of growing up in a family of five adopted girls in Canada and her eventual reunion with her biological half-sister, Marnie. Marnie describes the shock of finding out she had a sister and the long road to building a strong relationship. And Michaela's adoptive mother, Ainslie, offers her perspective on taking in children in need of a loving home. Tune in to "New Day" on Friday at 8:30 a.m. ET to hear more from Michaela, and then watch "@THIS HOUR" at 11:30 a.m. ET to meet her adoptive mother and sister.

(CNN)  Michaela: Growing up in our house there was no way to get around the topic of adoption. All five of the kids in my family, all girls, are adopted. One look at us, and you knew this was a different kind of family.
