Amazing Parents Adopt 4 Kids In 24 Hours

After a long journey to parenthood, this couple officially became parents of four in less than 24 hours.

Becoming a mom is a life-changing event.  If feels like life goes from 0 to 60 in the blink of an eye, and for new mom Kaley Carling this is definitely true.

Carling describes the joy of motherhood best in her recent Reddit post. She writes, “four kids 2 and under is no joke, but our dreams were realized (times 4!) and we are so grateful and happy! <and tired>.”

Carling and her husband have reason to be tired. They officially adopted their four daughters (all age 2 and younger) in less than a 24-hour period.  She posted a photo of the monumental occasion on Reddit last week, and this family couldn’t be any cuter.

Over the course of two days, they became the family they always dreamed they would be. The couple completed the adoption of the two girls they had been fostering for over a year, Haven, now 2, and Indie, 14 months, on Wednesday, Oct. 19. Twins, Sunny and Weslie, now 9 months, officially joined the family through private adoption the very next day.

Carling told Parents, “It was easily the best few days of our lives! The judge commented that she’s never seen so much love and support in her courtroom before.”

But, there were times this beautiful day seemed out of reach. Carling wrote about this struggle alongside the adorable photo on Reddit.

“Our journey to get to this point has been anything but easy; health issues, infertility, failed adoptions, death. Heartbreak. And more heartbreak. Shit that is so crazy you couldn’t make it up. It seemed like it would never end. We are here to give hope to those in a similar situation to persevere, to push through. When you feel like giving up, don’t. It will all be worth it in the end…sleep deprivation and all.”

What an amazing couple. We can’t help but smile at these beautiful little girls, and their parents’ passion and commitment to their sweet family.
