Meet the parents who took on four children in 24 hours.

Kaley Carling, from Utah, was unable to have children herself because of medication she was taking for a Lupus diagnosis. She and her husband, Jeremy, decided to adopt.

“Ever since I was a teenager, and I knew what fostering and adoption was, I wanted that to be a part of my life whether I was able to have children biologically or not,” she told US ABC.

In August social services contacted them to say that two little girls — Indie, 1, and Haven, 2 — were up for fostering.

Less than 24 hours later they got another call from a new mother who asked them if they could adopt her twin daughters, nine-month-old Sunny and Weslie.

The adoptions of all four girls were formally completed late last month.

“I can’t explain the feeling,” Kaley said, who posted about the experience on Reddit, under username, zerotofourinfive,  “I feel like kids could even feel it, we all felt a massive sense of relief. The time had come for us to just be a normal family.”

She added, “We had the girls for 14 months and the twins for 9 months by the time we adopted them last month.”

  • What a wonderful couple to take on these gorgeous children. Their lives will never be the same again and it is so worth it. Congratulations to the new Mum and Dad


  • What a wonderful story and so lovely for them that they could adopt young kids that will feel almost like their own.


  • What a fantastic outcome for these parents and the four children. They are now in a home and family where they are absolutely wanted and loved.


  • good 4 you and your husband 4 taking all of these babys and adopting them and all 4 at once great 4 you



  • All the very best to the new family.


  • Beautiful, bless them !
    We have 2 kids ourselves and 2 kids (siblings) in permanent care, but don’t feel for adopting as the parents are still in the picture and have every now and then contact (not to be restored). We also have 2 siblings in temporary care by whom it’s unsure what is going to happen in regards to their parents.


  • Wow, to go from zero to four children is just mind blowing!


  • WOW – What a handful, but these parents look as though they will see it through and love these children as their own.


  • What a lovely story, these girls are lucky to have such caring and loving parents who really wanted these girls. They will all have an amazing future, I’m sure!


  • I’m sure they are going to be a happy family. The children are all young enough that they probably won’t remember their birth Mothers and will adjust better than if they were older. I am glad Kaley and Jeremy have adopted them so they will have a stable life. Sometimes children are temporarily fostered then go back to their Mum /parents and it happens a couple of times.


  • Ohh that beautiful and kind of them my god protect them and congratulations for this sweet family ????❤️️


  • Oh! That’s so sweet of them! I wish them a wonderful time together!! :-)


  • I bet that’s tough – but wonderful, too.


  • Congratulations!!


  • Gosh that will be a shock to the system, i struggled going from one child to two, imagine none to four!
    It is great that they are able to open up their homes to these girls. Goodluck for the future.
