tepping into Lila and Steve
Zorn's West Bloomfield home
is to step into chaos. But it's a
Kids are crawling, kids are toddling,
kids are sharing hugs and kisses with
Grandma and "Auntie Juju." One puts
down a bottle and his cousin picks it
up. One decides to stroll a "baby" in a
doll carriage and another young
cousin is right there to "help."
"You have to be flexible in a family
like this," says Lila Zorn, delighted
ringmaster of the brood she calls the
Zorn Zoo. "But they're worth it. The
kids all get along so beautifully. You

"Some women say, 'I -raised my kids
I'm not sitting any more.' I say,
`Thank you, God' a thousand times a
day. I'm the most blessed woman in
the world. I have four fabulous kids

and gave me seven delicious grandchil-
dren. What more could you ask for?

important than these guys?"
