Playing A Family of 11 with a Heartwarming Story Gets the Surprise of a Lifetime
A Family of 11 with a Heartwarming Story Gets the Surprise of a Lifetime Aired December 26, 2016

Stephanie and Donnie Culley, already parents of three, took in six more kids after their mother -- a high school friend of Stephanie’s -- tragically passed away from breast cancer, which expanded their family from 5 to 11 overnight. “Me, being a mother, I could not imagine having to ask somebody that question,” says Stephanie. “She chose me because we were very similar in our parenting styles, and she knew that I loved her kids and that my kids loved her kids.”

Providing for a child -- including their education -- doesn’t come cheap, especially with nine kids. That’s where the Rachael Ray show comes in. We reached out to our friends at Upromise by Sallie Mae, who generously donated $90,000 for the kids’ college funds. Rachael also has another surprise up her sleeve -- brand new furniture for their entire home from the Rachael Ray Home collection!
