(KFVS) -

They're calling it "Gotcha Day." On 11/12/13, a day that will be easy to remember, Bob and Cheryl Brenneke officially have three more members added to their family.

They are adopting Jacque Waller's 8-year-old triplets.

Bob and Cheryl (Jacque's sister) have been the legal guardians of Maddox, Avery, and Addison since right after Jacque Waller disappeared in the summer of 2011.

Not long after Jacque's disappearance, authorities arrested the children's father, Clay Waller.

He was later charged in connection with his estranged wife's death.

Jacque's remains were found in the Devil's Island area of Alexander County, Illinois right around the second anniversary of her disappearance.

Authorities revealed that Clay Waller led investigators to his estranged wife's body as part of a plea deal.

Waller is now serving a 20 year sentence on a second degree murder charge.

The Brenneke's have long expressed publicly their commitment to raising Jacque's children and giving them the life they deserve.
