Mike and Hayley Jones already had two biological sons (ages 6 and 1) when they decided the time was right to adopt. After a 3-year process to complete the adoption the family now calls themselves the “Jones Dozen.” All eight adopted children (ranged in age from 5 to 16) are biological siblings, comprised of seven boys and one girl, who came from a family where the father had died and the living relatives were unable to support the family. Now they’ve been home for over 3 years and they have 11 children with adding a now 10 month old biological son. Their children now range from 10 months old to 18 years old. Mike and Hayley have been married for over seventeen years. The Joneses make their home in Franklin, Tennessee, a suburb just south of Nashville.
