Jessica Clark, 25, said the moment she and her husband met the "super seven" sibling group, she knew they were her kids. Overnight, this Georgia couple went from a cozy family of three to a bustling family of 10.

Jessaka Clark, 25, and her husband, Josh Clark, 29, adopted seven siblings Tuesday after waiting for the big day for more than a year.

"They were my kids from the first time we met,” the now mom-of-eight told InsideEdition.com. “It’s nice to have the finality of it and the kids definitely feel a huge difference because they know that this is it — it’s permanent."

Noah, 3, is her only biological child and also the youngest of the clan.

“[Noah] has always kind of wanted brothers and sisters,” Clark explained. “By the time he got to meet them, he knew all of their names and they were already his brothers and sisters. He had a hard time accepting that he wasn’t being adopted. That took us a few days to get him to understand, but he’s okay now.”

She and her husband had known from the beginning that they wanted to adopt.

“The month we got married, we were actually told we weren’t going to be able to have children of our own so we started the adoption process,” Clark said. “Seven months later, we were surprised with the pregnancy of our own son.”

They waited a year after Noah was born before they got back on track with adopting more members of our family, and when the agency approached them with the seven siblings, “it just seemed right, so we didn’t question it.”

The kids started living at their home in April 2016, and although they quickly turned into members of the family, Clark said they ran into the same troubles any expanding family does.

“Eight seems like a big number, but it’s mostly just the logistics of it,” she explained. “Okay, how do we get to soccer practice for these three and volleyball practice for this one? How in the world are we going to get four car seats in the back of this thing? We forget all the time there’s actually eight until people are sitting there counting them at a restaurant.”

Of course, their challenges include purchasing a 15-seater van, and a house that has enough room for everyone.

But, Clark said the benefits of a big family greatly paid off.

“It’s just brought this whole level of fun and adventure in our lives,” she explained. “The most rewarding has just been the love in the house [and sharing] our home with these kids who are incredibly smart. They’re so beautiful. They’re so sweet. They are crazy. They are loud. They are fun."
