The cover story for the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Thanksgiving Day was all about a Virginia couple celebrating the holiday with their 20 adopted children. Wow, that’s about all I can say. Twenty is enough: Va. couple, their many adopted children thankful on ‘our most special holiday’:
“We didn’t really set out to adopt 20 children,” said Mike.
But that’s precisely how many will be gathered around the table today — plus two boyfriends — to say grace over a pair of 22-pound Butterball turkeys, stuffing cooked in twin lasagna pans, Meg’s mother’s corn pudding recipe multiplied by 10, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, 72 rolls and six pies (two sweet potato, two Toll House, one apple and one mincemeat).”
