This Southern Couple Adopts 7 Siblings, Find Out What Inspired Them
A Georgia couple Josh and Jessaka Clark adopted seven siblings on Tuesday who spent 1,359 days in foster care. The Clarks also have a biological son, named Noah. They said Noah loved and welcomed his new siblings in immediately and that there was an "instant bond."
Jessaka Clark and her husband, Josh, met the seven siblings -- Maria, Elizabet, Guillermo, Jason, Kristina, Katerin, James -- in April 2016. A case worker asked if the couple would be interested in adopting these siblings.
"My husband Josh and I both knew that we wanted to adopt children. We had decided this before we even met each other," Clark told Fox News.
"Josh has a heart for the thousands of children that don't have parents and knew he wanted to bring some of them into his home."
