The Dressels are an ordinary American family, more or less. Mom Madeline and dad Malachi got together in 2014, having been in love for most of their lives, and one thing led to another. Now they have a happy marriage, and as many couples do, particularly those entering their 30s, their minds turned to children.

Inhabitants of the small town of Cross Hill, South Carolina, Malachi and Madeline would look at their friends’ Facebook walls, admiring their photos. And naturally, they wanted to join in. The problem was, they didn’t have any kids of their own. So the couple got down to work on creating their own family.
