People have begun asking the University of Kansas about possibly adopting Jayla Robinson, the 9-year-old sister of Jayhawks forward Thomas Robinson, after their mother died unexpectedly last week.
In a horrific three-week span, Jayla and 19-year-old Thomas have
lost just about all the family they've ever known.
Their maternal grandparents died about two weeks apart. Then
last Friday night their mother, a single mom, died of an apparent
heart attack in Washington, D.C.
Jayla and her big brother are just about all the family each
other has now. But with Thomas playing basketball in Kansas,
they're also about 1,500 miles apart.
The school has also set up a scholarship fund for Jayla.
