You always hear that a family just wanted 1 more child when they do fertility and end up coming away with 4, 5 or 6.

This family already has 7 kids (2 natural and 5 adopted) so one would wonder why they would need more?

The new babies — two boys and two girls — arrived over the weekend with the help of artificial insemination and fertility drugs. New mom Dana and her partner, Allison, already have two biological children and five adopted special needs children.

They were hoping for just one more, but got much more.

“I had to use my fingers. I said, ‘Okay, this is how many I have right now, and I’m adding four more,” said Dana.

“We have lots of love and lots of room, so the more the merrier,” said Allison.

The couple gets financial help from the state.

The four new babies will mean a lot of work, but both are looking forward to their really big family.
