A couple have done an extreme ‘Brangelina’ by adopting eight siblings from an African orphanage in one go – the biggest single adoption in history.
Hayley and Mike Jones instantly increased the size of their family from two to ten by adopting the children from Sierra Leone.
The pair wanted a bigger family but were put off having children after both of Hayley’s pregnancies ended with emergency C-sections.
The family eats 2lbs of sausages and 36 eggs for breakfast along with a gallon of tea, biscuits and bacon. Such is the workload associated with feeding twelve people, Mrs Jones has introduced a rota giving each member of the household specific tasks each day so life works as smoothly as possible.
After talking to an orphanage in Africa they decided to adopt the seven brothers and one sister in one go. The children, aged between five and 16 were in a children’s home after their father was killed and their mother was unable to cope.
Mrs Jones, 31, says that her life has now changed dramatically but that she wouldn’t change it for the world. SOURCE
