MAUD, TX (KSLA) -

All 5 of the Seals quintuplets born in March are finally home in Maud, TX.

After a final check-up with their doctor in Dallas on Thursday, the "Fab Five" were reunited in their hometown on Friday.

It was an extra special homecoming in Maud, complete with a police escort and locals lining the route and waving signs of welcome and support.

Michelle Seals gave birth to the four girls and one boy by cesarean section on March 18 at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas: Mia (2 lbs., 10 oz.), Tessa (2 lbs. 14 oz.), Brant (3 lbs. 6 oz.), Gracie (2 lbs. 7 oz.) and Rayleigh (2 lbs. 8 oz.) Michelle, a 33-year-old first grade teacher at Maud Elementary School, has remained in Dallas while the last of the quints were strong enough to be released from the hospital.

More than 3 months later, all of the babies were cleared to go home. They made the 3-hour trip from Dallas on Friday in a van provided by a local church.

"It has been a long weekend, trying to get everybody home and basically move from one house to another," said Stephen Seals as they arrived with the 5 newborns and their 2-year-old son, Brady.

Now, it's time to get settled in, and look for a van of their own to cart the family of 8 around town.

    Thanksgiving is a time to be with loved ones and enjoy good food, but since that is not an option for everyone, members of the Jonesboro community came together to make sure as many people as possible were fed.
