Nashville family adopts 8 siblings from Sierra Leone

Posted:

NASHVILLE (AP) - A Middle Tennessee family has tripled in size with the adoption of 8 siblings from Sierra Leone.

The children - seven boys and one girl - walked off a plane in Nashville last week with their new mom, Hayley Jones, and were greeted with hugs from their new father, Mike Jones, and brothers, Tyler and Tucker.

The children's arrival comes three years after the Thompson's Station family began the process of adopting the children.

Mike Jones told The Tennessean that he and his wife originally planned to adopt one or two more children, but felt God calling them to take in more. He said when they heard about the group of 8 siblings, they knew it was right for them.
