This couple couldn’t have children on their own, but Ellen is amazed by the HUGE decision they made.

Nationwide, there are over 463,000 children in the foster care system. Each of these kids are surrendered to the state through no fault of their own, but are forced to face the consequences of their parent’s mistakes.


The Gross family grew by five two years ago when AnnMarie and Josh Gross couldn’t have children.  They decided that adoption was right for them. They started the process expecting to take one or two kids under their wing, but then they got a call that would change their lives forever.

Five siblings were in need of a loving family… and though AnnMarie and Josh were understandably nervous about such a huge life change, they responded with loving hearts and open arms.

Watch below as Ellen makes things a bit easier for the Gross family.
