"Oh God, I'll have them again. I'll do it again. I wouldn't change anything for the world. I mean sometimes you say you would but no, God's been good to me and I thank God he's given me seven healthy beautiful kids, I can't complain.

Her children range in age, from 30 to 11 years-old. Her oldest child is in the military and is stationed in Afghanistan.

Fran Walls is a mother of two, but she has is also a mother to many others.

"I drive a school bus for Lee County and I have 10,000 children. So I'm a mother to not only my two but 10,000 more children I love. Part of being a mother is the love and the companion with your children and that's what I have," said Fran Walls.

Cynthia Spann is an adoptive mother of five and 5 step-children and 3 biological kids herself.
