Transcript for Minnesota Family Gets the Surprise of a Lifetime
Finally tonight, giving thanks, 92 times over. Our own robin Roberts gives the surprise of their lives to one very special family from St. Cloud, Minnesota, who opened their doors to children in need again and again and again. Reporter: We're on our way now to meet an inspiring family. I got to tell you, their love for each other and for others, well, it knows no bounds. We have two biological children. We have adopted six. We've done foster care for 92 kids. Reporter: Yep, you heard that right -- 92 kids! But parenting and fostering so many children wasn't always the plan for the pastor turned fitness instructor and this reserve police officer. He didn't want it in children. I wanted 12 and he wanted zero. So, we compromised and did it my way. Reporter: After having two children -- Kira and Dayton -- a friend got them involved in foster care in a big way. When we would get a call for a foster child that was in need of a placement, we always said yes. Somebody's got to be willing to put their heart on the line for these kids. Reporter: The family, well, they think they're being filmed for our blog. Oh, it's wonderful to see you. We've heard so much about this beautiful family. You're probably wondering why we're here. Yes! Reporter: We wanted to say thank you. You inspire us. You're so selfless and we are not the only ones who want to say thank you to the Neal family. Wanted you to take a look at this. Thank you for giving me a home when my other mom couldn't take care of me. Mom and dad, I just really want to thank you for the influence you've had on me and the person that you've raised me to be. Thank you so much for adopting me. I love you. There's no other place I could be. Oh. Oh, thanks. Be sure to tune in later tonight to check out the extraordinary gifts robin and her team surprised the family with, on "Thank you America with robin Roberts" right here on ABC. We want to thank you for sharing your holiday with us. We are always here at abcnews.com. "Nightline" later, and I'll see you back here tomorrow on "Gma." Have a happy Thanksgiving. ? ?
