Family Adopts Eight Kids

"John and Kate Plus Eight" and the Octo-Mom have captured the national spotlight. But a Borger family is also up for the challenge of raising eight kids.

After ten years of marriage without being able to have kids, Michael and Mary Fitzgerald decided to be foster parents.

They ended up adopting two of their foster children. Then six years later, they came back for more.

They thought maybe they'd add one or two more kids at most, but within a year, their family grew to eight children.

That's because those they wanted to adopt were siblings, and michael and mary didn't want to split them up.

And they say if they can adopt eight children, surely people a lot more well off than they are can help one or two.
