Wiegrefe Family

Jeff and Karla Wiegrefe’s nine children are, from left: Nathanial, 21, Matthew, 19, Azariah, 14, Elizabeth, 12, Isaiah, 10, Maria, 8, Josiah, 6, Zebadiah, 3, and Naomi, 1, as seen in front of the family bus at their home in Fargo.

“The kids are a gift to me, each one of them is. We have learned so much from them. I have some kids that have taught me patience. And some that have taught me to look at the little things and laugh. And some that have taught me not to focus on ‘self,’ ” Karla says.
