When you have five children – one set of triplets and one set of twins, born only months apart, what’s adding one more to the clan? Come and find out as we sit down with the Justice family, who recently welcomed their sixth child (and first non-multiple) to their gorgeous group.
In 2013, after a year of trying to fall pregnant, Andy and Sarah Justice decided to adopt. But just three weeks after welcoming their adoptive triplets – Joel, Hannah and Elizabeth, in May 2013, Sarah discovered she was pregnant.
And with twins. In December, 2013, the family welcomed two more – Abigail and Andrew.
And, thus, Andy and Sarah went from zero to five in seven months. Ever since then, it’s been a roller coaster ride of love, adventure, laughter and fun! And while the couple admit that sleep doesn’t happen often, they wouldn’t want it any other way.
“Having a number of children is a dream come true,” Sarah said. “When you wait for something you appreciate it that much more when you get it.”
The Justice family welcomed their first non-multiple, a baby boy named Caleb bringing the total to six kids under three (at the time). Now Caleb is six months, the triplets are three and the twins are two-and-a-half.
And all five toddlers are making the transition into toddler beds and learning the ins and outs of potty training.
“Having five in toddler beds is an adventure,” Sarah admits. “But we are getting there.”
“We never lack playmates and work to promote love and care between the siblings. Our children will always have a friend and will never need to feel lonely.”
And while Caleb may be younger by a couple of years, he hasn’t had a problem fitting into the swing of things. “All of the kids absolutely adore their ‘baby Caleb’”, Sarah tells us.
Children are certainly a blessing and with three boys and three girls, the Justice’s have hit the jackpot.
“They bring a great deal of joy to our lives and we enjoy watching them love life.”
