Wow! Talk about modern family!

When Melissa Groves and her hubby Scott couldn't get pregnant, they decided to go the difficult but rewarding route of adoption.

But little did they know how BIG their reward was going to be!

A young son was found for the Groves family pretty quickly, but there was a catch. Melissa writes:

"'There is a sibling group of 5 but we need emergency placement of the younger 2 boys,' the voice on the other end of the phone said. WAIT, WHAT?! TWO boys?! But we said only ONE! Instantly my excitement faded to disappointment."

But they did adopt those two boys, and they fell in love so hard they just had to complete the set!

Not wanting to let them get separated into different homes, Melissa and Scott not only adopted the five older brothers, they even adopted the next child by the same mother!

Eight brothers! Oh brother!

Along with Melissa's daughter from a previous relationship, they suddenly became a family of 11! There isn't even sitcom about that! LOLz!

Melissa is just thankful for her fam. She says:

"For us, adoption was initially just a means to complete our family when having a biological child seemed impossible. But, it has become so much more to us. It has opened our eyes, widened the horizons of our family, enriched all of our lives, and brought us so much love and happiness."

It's too bad that there aren't more people like the Groves family.

    I think it's wonderful that they've done this. Older children are rarely adopted and it's even more awesome that all these brothers still get to grow up together in a loving family.

    This is truly wonderful, thank goodness there are people who are willing to adopt larger families.

    That being said…the biological mother can just keep popping out babies that she cannot take care of, that isn't right! Planned Parenthood and other women's orgs give out free birth control and IUD's, if she is unwilling to terminate pregnancies, she should be mandated to be on some kind of birth control…8 kids she cannot take care of, it's just cruel.

    Re: cheesuschrimbus – I was thinking the same thing, but we don't know the biological mother's situation. Maybe she was already pregnant with the youngest kid when suddenly something happened resulting in her having to give up her kids. We also don't know whether she gave them up voluntarily or if they were taken from her… in any case, the kids are probably better off now.

    Start working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life.

    This is what I do……………..

    Re: cheesuschrimbus – I also thought the same thing, who has 8 kids other than Kate Gosselin.
    Glad those 8 boys will have a nice home and hopefully a good Thanksgiving, also wishing a good Thanksgiving to the rest of you.

    Someone needs to sterilize that women who gave away 8 kids…

    CPS wouldn't allow for adoptions if the mother was having a temporary shlump. Adopting out the kids means that the situation must have been pretty bad because it's nearly impossible to have children immediately adopted out and not just put in temporary homes or facilities.
