The second of the three girls born was Natalie Sue. When she was born she weighed two pounds and eleven ounces. When she graduated, she was in the top fifteen percent of her class. Like her sister Kelsey Ann, she’s chosen to accept the free scholarship to Hannibal-LaGrange University. Natalie Sue wants to one day become a preschool teacher and is majoring in elementary education.

Nathan Roy was the fifth baby born, and he weighed three pounds and three ounces. Nathan Roy was the other child who was born with cerebral palsy. Unfortunately, in 2005, he had to have surgery on his spine to help him walk. He’s decided to also go to Hannibal-LaGrange University, and will be majoring in computer science. “I've just always liked to do computer stuff," he told KCCI 8. His brother doesn’t exactly have school on his mind.

Brandon James was the second to last child born, and weighed two pounds and fourteen ounces. Unlike his siblings, Brandon James didn’t decide to pursue the college route after graduation. He decided that his life was geared toward enlisting in the United States Army. "My job is the infantry, so I'll probably be gone most of the time because I'm going active duty for that," he told KCCI 8. The youngest brother also has a passion to work with electronics.

Joel Steven is the baby out the group, and was born at two pounds and fifteen ounces. He’s also decided to head to Hannibal-LaGrange University. Like his brother Nathan Roy, he’ll be majoring in computer science. “I've always thought that computers were really weird, but in a good way. I liked how they worked," he told KCCI 8. Now that the kids are heading out on their own, what do the parents have to say?

Their parents are a bit sad to see them leave the nest, but they’re also happy to have them go. Watching their kids head out on their own journeys has been their ultimate goal as parents. When asked for advice, Kenny jokingly told KCCI 8, "Just have them one at a time. That's the best way -- just kidding." One thing we do know about their futures is that they all have an amazing story to tell!
