An Ohio who already has five biological children has officially adopted six more children, because they didn't want them to be separated from their siblings.

Christopher and Christina Sanders say they made a deal with each other:  "Regardless of how many children came into their home, they would do what they could to keep existing families together and not sentence children to lives of being shuffled between different households."

"We were having a rough life (before)," 13-year-old Caleb told Judge Ralph Winkler in the Hamilton County Adoption Court.

The Sanders adopted Caleb and his siblings Coby, Christian, Caylee, Carson and Chloe Thursday morning.

It's pretty easy to see that the couple's 11 children are not all blood relatives, but Mr. Sanders sums it up beautifully.

"We're all the same in God's eyes, so the color of anyone's skin has never had a bearing on any of this."
