Story Summary

For more than a month, 11 people have been living in a two-bedroom mobile home nestled among 22 trailers on Bobs Lane in Troy, Missouri. Financial burdens, family illness and boyfriend issues have created an extended family bond so strong that nothing can come between the Webb family.

Donald and Cheryl Webb are grandparents to more than 10 children and are happy to open their door to any family member in need. "We are always willing to help each other out," explains Cheryl. The couple's daughter, Amanda Webb, and her five kids recently left Elco, Illinois, to move in with her parents after Donald's struggle with diabetes forced him to leave his job.
