The Saunders have one biological son and six adoptive children: Nick, 16; Ian, 13; Nathan, 13; Haylee, 12; Mara, 10; Christian, 9; and Kevin, 7.

This includes the birth families of some of the children, which has been challenging for Jay and Mary to explain at times. Mary often tells her children "you can never have too many people loving you," which doesn't seem to be a problem in the Saunders household.

Senator Johanns e-Update
August 11, 2014

I have the privilege each year of honoring outstanding parents who have chosen to adopt as “Angels in Adoption.” I am always inspired by the number of families in Nebraska who have selflessly opened their hearts to children without a permanent place to call home, and this year, I’m pleased to announce Jay and Mary Saunders of Bellevue as 2014 “Angels in Adoption.”

 

The Saunders have one biological son and six adoptive children: Nick, 16; Ian, 13; Nathan, 13; Haylee, 12; Mara, 10; Christian, 9; and Kevin, 7. Nick, the eldest, is their biological child whose special needs inspired the Saunders to open their home and hearts to adopting other children with disabilities. 

 

Throughout the past 15 years, the Saunders have worked to integrate their growing family, both immediate and extended. This includes the birth families of some of the children, which has been challenging for Jay and Mary to explain at times. Mary often tells her children “you can never have too many people loving you,” which doesn’t seem to be a problem in the Saunders household.
