Watch: This Family Celebrating Growing From Three to Ten
Josh and Jessaka Clark from Effingham County, Georgia have always known they had the heart to adopt.
Jessaka’s parents were foster parents and after 5 years, ended up adopting her two brothers who were in foster care.
Josh told Jessaka on their first date that he wanted 10 kids, and most of them being adopted. After the couple had their son Noah, they decided to begin the adoption process.
In March of 2016, Josh received a call about the “super seven.”
“When he got off the phone, he said to me, ‘What do you think about seven?,” Jessaka said. “I said, ‘A 7-year-old?’ He said, ‘Well, there is a 7-year-old, but no… seven children.’”
After meeting the seven kids, the family of three continued the process to bring them home.
“They moved in with us on Aug. 5 and have been waiting every day for our court date to finalize,” Jessaka Clark said.
The 9-month waiting period finally ended on May 9th.
On the way to the courthouse, the family was showing their excitement, while Josh Clark videoed the children and posted the adorable video to Facebook (watch here).
"We are all super excited," Josh Clark said before the adoption. "They have been up since 6, screaming and running around the house.”
On May 9th, the family of 3 turned into a family of 10 when they officially added Maria, Elizabet, Guillermo, Jason, Kristina, Katerin, to their family. “We love our family, and as difficult as it can be, we wouldn't change it,” Jessaka Clark said.
