[ laughter ] >> like a pancake. a lot of people felt that way. >> i kind of felt that way. we had a nice time off down in the keys. once you're just hanging out dodo there, it's called keys disease. >> you want it stay in.

>> my chickens are like my babies. since i don't have human bob yabies. i have one special chicken named sheila. she stays in my room with me. does everything with me. it's going to be extremely hard for me to leave my chickens. i haven't beenn away from them for more than ten days ever. i have to think hard, what comes first, the chickens or the ben? >> what's the average life-span for a chicken? >> i don't know. but it got wackier from there. the girls all get out of the limo and are trying to one-up each othth on how to get ben's attention. this girl shows up with a giant rose on her head. this one girl who doesn't speak english, she did a football -- is that a lady like position? i just don't know. >> we're going over the oh, no. >> she hikes the ball.

parent hood wasn't for him. they ventured to haiti as a family of two and returned as a family of five. >> i was wholeheartedly committed to not have children be part of may life. i wanted to be a successful businessman. i wanted to build a company with a winning track record, and i didn't want to have the distraction of other friend r things in my life. >> but after reaching his career goals and living a care-free life of golf and skiing, they were searching for more purpose. >> i remember walking into my very first orphanage, and that entire experience, which was, you know, really profound. when i was in the midst of that orphanage and even walking away from that orphanage, there was this voice, this thing saying "do something". now at the time, i wasn't exactly sure what the "something" was.
to adopt one or two or in our case three of these children. and that was the beginning. i mean, now you reflect ten years. the something turnedna something much different and bigger. >> now, 15, 14 and 10, the children are living a life full of opportunity. espy is an aspiring designer. >> i enjoy designing like clothes. my favorite thing to do. >> amalek a star athlete, and quinn, a pint-sized pianist. it wasn't long before they realized they wanted for others what they have created for their own. in 2010, they started two foundations, both ends burning and chances for children, created to help thousands of orphaned children join loving families. together they are building a global group to reexamine and
for craig, kathy and their three kids, this is where they belong. >> we are exactly where we belong. everything in my path, in craig's past, and even our children's past was shaped for where we are right thousand. >> i'm thankful for a roof over my head, loving and giving family, a brother and sister, mom and dad, and all the support i get. >> both my parents, you know, like, they go out of their way to like help other people and like they don't have to do that. and even like my older brother and my younger brother do the same thing, so they rub off on us almost. >> love is formed by the nurturing experience. and so i think that our family is just like any other family. we have our good days. we have our bad days. we have our challenges, but at the foundation of it is still this fabulous entity called the family. and we're all better off because we're in a family.
understand, this is where we belong, and we don't question. >> that's so great. >> is that amazing? >> when i read that story, i was in tears at the end. >> they are some of the people we feature in the book. some people are looking for where they belong professionally or spiritually or yes motionly or physically, and jane, that family was something. >> talk about change, craig was so sure he didn't want children, he had a vasectomy when he was 30. >> i remember reading that. >> so each, i think whatever you're thinking about in your life, if you're looking for some kind of change, there's somebody in here that represents maybe the path you nad toeed to be on, but there are great stories in here. >> who would you say this book is for? >> one thinking about a second career, someone in their 50s or 60s, a college graduate trying to figure out where they want to be in their life, for anybody.
