The woman thought she was expecting only two twins, but her pregnancy was actually one in four billion

According to Lauren Perkins, the desire to be a mother was a dream.

After a difficult year in which their attempts to conceive failed, she and her husband, David, went on vacation to Nicaragua.

During the vacation, they continued to seek advice from friends to find a solution to their problem.

One of these friends, a priest, calmly responded, “Someone out there has big plans for you. I don’t know what it is, but it will be fantastic!”

After the vacation in Nicaragua, the couple returned to Texas, and Lauren forgot the words of the priest.

The couple decided on artificial insemination. And Lauren became pregnant.

At the first examination, the hCG level was too high, which is an indicator of multiple pregnancies.

The couple was happy at the thought of having two, or maybe three children.

They had dreamed of a child for so long that they considered it a reward.

According to the ultrasound results, the doctor suggested that there were 5 children.

While Lauren was in shock, the doctor examined her again and said she was wrong: there were six children.

Doctors explained that with artificial insemination, the probability of all the children being born alive and healthy was incredibly small.

Lauren and David had to make a difficult decision.

They thought about it for a long time, but in the end, the couple decided to give all six children a chance.

Doctors promised to do everything possible to keep all the children safe.

On April 23, 2012, 35 employees gathered in the maternity ward.

All the medical staff, as well as the parents themselves, were excited about the upcoming birth. But the delivery went quickly.

Only 4 minutes later, Levi, Allison, Leah, Andrew, Benjamin, and Caroline were born. Each baby weighed less than a kilogram.

The mother was immediately shown to her children, and she was allowed to touch them with her fingers.

For several weeks, the babies remained in the hospital under medical supervision. Gradually, their conditions stabilized.

After 4 months, five of them were with their parents. Only little Leah had to spend a few more weeks in the hospital because her brain didn’t have enough time to develop in the womb.

Lauren was very grateful to the doctors for her happiness.
