Young Mom Welcomed Quadruplets Shortly After Adopting Four Foster Children

Maxine and Jake Young always wanted lots of kids, but they couldn’t have any. They were sad until something amazing happened.

Maxine and Jake got married in May 2016 in Pennsylvania. They really wanted to start a family. Maxine also thought about adopting kids who needed a family.

Jake’s mom, Arlette, said Jacob loved the idea of having a big, loving family.

They started training to be foster parents in February 2017. After the training, they were approved to take care of kids in June 2017.

A month later, they got a call about three siblings who needed a home. They were ages 4, 2, and 11 months. A few weeks later, they also got a newborn baby sister.

It was hard because the kids had different needs. One was diagnosed with autism, and they all had been through tough times.

But Maxine and Jacob still wanted their own biological kids. Maxine had many miscarriages and had to do special treatments to have their son, Henry, in October 2018.

They thought their family was complete, but then Maxine found out she was pregnant again without any treatments.

The biggest surprise came when they found out they were having quadruplets. Maxine gave birth to four babies on July 31. They named them Silas, Theo, Beck, and Cecilia.
