Story Summary

Perryville, Missouri resident Thelma Nations, 70, lives the Catholic life. A mother of 11 and grandmother of 15, she practices Catholic teachings daily. She thought she was done raising kids, but everything changed in 2002 when she learned that her son was not able to care for his two children. Her love for her family led her to legally adopt them even though it means starting over again.
