She and her husband Jeff (left) had four daughters together, adopted another, and then adopted five more children later in life.

Blessed mother

 Love makes a family, and in the case of the Hallmarks, they have a whole lot of love to give. With 10 children, biological and adopted, 10 grandchildren and one on the way, and a flow of cultural exchange students, the Hallmark household is busy, full, and incredibly unique.

“There’s always kids all over the house, but we make it work, and everyone blends together,” said Katy Hallmark. “I think pretty early on motherhood changed my perspective completely. I guess maybe it grew me, it made me focus on what is important.”
