Round 14: The Jayapalan Family

Last week in the Jayapalan household, Daryl passed away, Gared and Genevieve became children, Marriah retired, Elise had twins Isadora and Anastacia who grew to toddlers.

This week, the family needed a home that could accomidate their rapid growth so they decided to completely rebuild.

For a complete tour of the newly renovated Jayapalan home click here.

Settling into their new home, Rob and Elise felt the pull to expand their family even more. The halls that were once crowded and noisy now echoed a bit more....even with four kids running around. Deciding to seize the moment, Rob and Elise call to adopt their fifth child.

They adopted a toddler daughter named Jamie. She was sweet and energetic...the perfect fit for the family she was now a member of.

Grandma Marriah was still around to help care for her grandchildren, and her help was invaluable to Rob and Elise. They were able to work while Marriah stayed home to look after the little ones.

Unfortunately, in such a busy household, the passing of dear sweet founder Marriah was nearly missed. She is gone, but will not be forgotten by her family.

With her mother now gone, then spending time with her close friend Ruby, Elise had another void that she longed to fill. She and Rob had discussed adopting just one more child.

The fact that Ruby was expecting made Elise long for another child even more. So she discussed it with Rob and they agreed to adopt just one more child.

This time, the family opted to adopt a child named Sharla. She wasn't the son that Rob had in mind, but that didn't matter, she was full of spunk...another perfect fit for the Jayapalan clan.

Okay, there's the proof you've been away too long, Shaunna; I've lost track of the kids. I love that you adopted Sharla. Whatever happened to the rest of her family?
Sorry about Marriah going. I'm sad. Isn't she the last of your founding sims?
All the kids are beautiful. Heartbreakers in the making.
Congrats on the LTW.

Such a nice growing (in a couple senses of the word) family. You've lucked out with the adoption pool too, they can be scary. The picture of the almost gone hula dancer was pretty cool. I guess you did really almost miss it.
