Meet the Carmichaels
The Carmichaels are a happy family of eight from Knoxville, Tennessee. Stephanie and Sean Carmichael got married in 1998. At the time, Stephanie had two children, daughter Danielle and son Cody.
At one point, Stephanie and her husband decided that they wanted more children, and the couple set out on a mission. Their goal was to give orphaned children with Down syndrome a chance at life.
In 2010, Stephanie and Sean adopted Caden and Cole, two boys from Ukraine. Both boys have DS, and Cole has institutional autism.
