Local mom celebrates Mother's Day with her 11 children. Sarah Bloomquist reports during Action News at 6 p.m. on May 14, 2017. (WPVI)

A mom from the Oxford Circle section of Philadelphia feels the love many times over this Mother's Day.

Sherri Dunn is the mother of 11 children.

They all have names that begin with the letter "J".

She also has nine grandchildren.

They get together every year for Mother's Day.

She says her secret to raising and keeping such a large family so close is love.

"I love them all. Everyone has their own special gifts, talents, their own personalities, and I love every one of their personalities," she said.

Sherrie says this Mother's Day is special because her youngest grandchild was just born a few months ago, and because she just got married.
