Marriage and raising kids is a roller-coaster ride. Life comes at you fast, and when you finally are on firm ground, your whole life has changed.
Jacob and Maxine Young can very much relate. The couple, who got married in 2016, went from having zero children to nine of them in just four years. They shared their story with Good Morning America.
Maxine had always had a desire to adopt children. She learned more about foster care and decided she wanted to help in whatever way possible, even if it was temporary. It took two months of classes and paperwork for Jacob and Maxine to be cleared to be foster parents.
Foster care brought four siblings into the couple’s life. It was an adjustment, but they were in love. While raising their four, Maxine conceived via intrauterine insemination. The couple welcomed a son in October 2018 after trying to conceive for over two years.
With that, they thought their family was nearly complete. They contemplated adding one more child. Then they received a big shock when Maxine, who didn’t think she could get pregnant naturally, discovered she was expecting quadruplets.
