My older sister is adopted (my mom was told she would never have have kids, I was a complete surprise 6 years later!).
My Aunt and Uncle adopted 3 children (all foster to adopt, they actually had many foster children before they officially adopted.)
I have a friend who is going through the adoption process for a child she has fostered for the last 5 years. She also plans to adopt (or foster) more children. (And she is a single mom with an older daughter, she is so awesome!)

I know of at least 4 houses on my street that have adopted between 1 and 6 kids each.
A good friend is fighting to keep the daughter they've been fostering. The father came back into her life so they're basically her parents on the weekend only when the father works.
