Family Plot:

Year 11: [name_u]Ali[/name_u] has become a sought after dentist that every one would like to have at their practice.

Although [name_m]Andrew[/name_m]'s job paid well, raising six kids is expensive, so she decided to take the job.

Year 12: A year after [name_u]Ali[/name_u] is promoted, [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] is promoted to head coordinator at the firm! With this he receives many new benefits including a $2500 salary increase, paid sick days, and three weeks of paid vacation a year.

Year 14: After [name_u]Ali[/name_u] is sued for malpractice, she loses her job at the private practice. This causes the family to struggle financially, because they only have $45,000 a year.

Year 15: [name_u]Ali[/name_u] and [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] volunteer as foster parents to six children. At the end of the year, the family decides to adopt them!

Year 16: The Keating Family wins $50K from playing the lottery!
