FROM THIS EPISODE

Today's story is about two families trying to become one family. One set of parents is white, one is black, one lives in Portland, Oregon, the other in Miami, Florida, one is Canadian/American, the other is Haitian/American. So, geographically, demographically, and socio-economically they live in very different worlds, but when we started following them more than a year ago, they'd made a plan to become one family under one roof with the eight children they have between them — eleven people in all. Why? Well, that's the story you'll hear today, and we hope to follow the gang for many years to come as the experiment continues to evolve, sort of like the famous Up documentary series.
