HENRY COUNTY, Ga. — A Henry County family welcomed their 15th child this weekend.

LaChelle Adkins of McDonough, Ga., gave birth to her 13th child on Saturday. Hope Monique is the youngest of the group, which include two other children previously fathered by husband Jerome.

LaChelle has spent the better part of the past two decades either pregnant or nursing.

“It sounds like a big number, but it just doesn’t seem like it,” said LaChelle Adkins. “When they’re all around, each of them has their own personality.”

Jerome Adkins said, “I read the Bible, and it said be fruitful and multiply. I closed the Bible up and said, ‘We serve a good God.'”
