it was amazing
Read from April 09 to 29, 2011

I completely love the Gilbreth family! This unique home with a dozen—biological I might add—siblings is pure comedy and awe-inspiring! The mother is amazing for all that she did in keeping her family together. What's more, she made good on the goal she'd set with her husband in seeing all 11 children (1 child died in infancy) graduate from college. The internal structures instituted by the father prepared the children to run themselves while mother was on the road or working. None of it could have worked without this. I got a little choked up by the end...this story is a beautiful dedication by the authors to their parents' life's work and love of family.
