Heart to Heart: The Windhams

There's never  a quiet moment in the Windham household.

"Busy. Very busy and hectic. But it's good too," said John Windham.

That's because Brenna and John's family has had quite the expansion over the last eight years.

"It started with one and now we have six," said Brenna Windham.

The Windhams always knew they wanted to adopt and now they are at the fixed number of six kids.

"She will be two all the way up to 17," said John.

Why did the Windhams decide to adopt?

"Just a need for homes for kids, there are so many kids that don't have a home and need desperately for somewhere to take care of them and live and a family to belong to," said John.

Kids like Tyler, who had been in the foster system most of his life.

"Since I was three, so i had been in there for a while," said Tyler Windham.

Now Tyler is officially a Windham.

"It feels like it's been forever but it's only been a year and a half or two years," said Tyler.

And now he's thankful to be a part of the half dozen.

"I was grateful that i finally found a family that i could go to and that will be there for me," said Tyler.

John and Brenna are grateful too.

"It's not easy but it's very rewarding," said John.
