Old film with Richard Thomas (of John-Boy Walton fame)?

Emotional film about children who get split up and sent to different foster homes/parents and years later Richard Thomas's character searches for his long lost brothers and sisters to re-unite them all. A real tearjerker.

    I'll give this a try though it isn't Richard Thomas:

    A Long Way Home (1981 TV movie)

    starring Timothy Hutton, Brenda Vaccaro, Rosanna Arquette, Paul Regina, George Dzundza, Bonnie Bartlett, Wil Wheaton

    IMDb synopsis:

    Many years after being abandoned by his parents, Donald sets out in search of his siblings. His biggest challenge is cutting through layers of bureaucratic red tape. He happens upon a helpful counselor who offers her assistance in locating his missing brother and sister.
