Miracles do happen! Oklahoma residents Sarah and Andy Justice spent years trying to conceive and start a family of their own, but unfortunately, they only had trouble. After seeking the advice of a fertility expert, the couple was told that even in-vitro fertilization would only allow them a 10% chance of pregnancy.
In-vitro fertilization isn’t cheap, either, as you may know. It can cost anywhere between $30,000 and $60,000, and it still might not work. The Justices decided to seek other options.
Those other options really paid off—big time. Read on to see just how lucky Sarah and Andy got!
12. Starting A Family
The Justices began looking into adoption services to start their family. Because they wanted to adopt newborns, though, the process can be tough and tiring. They had to interview with birth mothers who would make the final decision. Two mothers-to-be accepted Sarah and Andy as parents, only to later change their minds.
11. Trying Again
They finally struck out, though, when a mother accepted their offer and invited Sarah to her first ultrasound appointment. That’s when they found out that the mother wasn’t just expecting one. She was pregnant with triplets!
10. Good Luck
In May 2013, the trio of newborns arrived. They were eight weeks early and only three pounds each, so the set of babies were kept in intensive care to ensure that they stayed healthy and grew before going home. The Justices were so excited to welcome Hannah, Joel, and Elizabeth into their lives!
9. Welcome Home
The new parents couldn’t have been happier when they brought their babies home. They weren’t prepared for what happened next, though: One week after the triplets were born, Sarah visited her doctor and learned that she was now pregnant. She wasn’t pregnant with one, though—she and Andy would be expecting a set of twins!
