This is an amazing story. A couple wants ONE child and ends up adopting 12! The best part is that they adopted sibling groups from foster care. Sibling groups are adopted less often than single children. According to, only about 23% of foster children are able to be placed with all of their siblings. Adopting one sibling group is challenging; adopting a few sibling groups is downright heroic. I love when they point out that the sibling groups just meshed and now all count each other as actual siblings. It is possible to blend families and make it work. Love conquers all, and this family is proof of that.
