Jeremy and Christianne Green unveiled their new home in Herriman on Thursday to five of their special-needs daughters.

Built partly by nationwide donations through Puzzle Them Home and by Herriman-based Huish Construction and other local businesses, the home features light switches and sinks that are lower to the ground to accommodate Sophi, who was born without arms; an elevator for Cali, who uses a wheelchair due to spina bifida; and a special safe playroom for Elli, who is blind and autistic.

The Greens' previous 2,600-foot-square home was too small for their three biological children and six special-needs children adopted from China.

Online contributions are still being accepted at puzzlethemhome.org to help the family pay down their mortgage.
