Why did they cancel this show?!?
17 October 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

I loved this show!!! The story was about a couple who had 8 adopted children. With a family that size, I'm sure you can imagine the chaos of the household (think Seventh Heaven or Just the Ten of Us). It had it's funny moments as well as it's serious ones (including teen parents and some of the kids searching for biological parents). On the season finale, Jessie (the mother) was surprised to learn she was pregnant, considering she had been told she would never have children biologically years earlier. The show was not picked up the next season, which really ticked me off. I really think this show would do well in syndication on Fox Family or Pax TV; I would definitely watch it again.
