HOUSTON, TX (AP) -

A Texas boy who was kidnapped as a baby will be reunited with his siblings.

A judge in Houston ruled Wednesday that 8-year-old Miguel Morin should be removed from foster care and given to a couple caring for his four siblings. The boy has been in foster care since authorities found him in March living in San Augustine County with his former baby sitter.

Child Protective Services officials say their goal remains to eventually have Miguel live with his real parents but more review is needed.

Meanwhile, Miguel is expected to reunite with his siblings by Friday after paperwork is completed. Another couple has been taking care of them under an agreement with the parents.

The boy's former babysitter, Krystle Tanner, and her mother, Gloria Jean Walker, are charged with kidnapping.

Authorities allege that Tanner abducted Miguel Morin in 2004 when he was 8 months old, and that Walker knew and didn't notify the authorities. Officials have previously disclosed in court that Miguel, in interviews with child welfare authorities, said his name was Jaquan and identified Tanner as his mother and Walker as his grandmother.
