A woman’s Facebook post has gone viral, describing her decision to go against her doctors’ recommendation after they discovered she was pregnant with quintuplets. She explained that she put her faith in God, instead of following their orders to eliminate some of her unborn children.
That was twenty years ago. Here’s how it turned out.
At the age of 28, I found out I was pregnant with quintuplets. Immediately, my doctor talked to me about selective reduction. When I said no, he sent me to a specialist who repeatedly asked me to consider reducing my pregnancy to triplets or even twins. This went on for several months. My husband and I never considered this, not for a second. God had given us these tiny children and He would take care of them.
20 years later I look back and can’t imagine our lives without any of them. After graduation, three joined the military to serve our country and two are pursuing careers in the medical field. They are all responsible adults who love God and make this world a better place. I chose to save their lives and now they are saving the lives of others.
Her powerful testimony has moved people all across the country, and was shared more than 150,000 times. Let’s keep it going.
