VIA| Adam and Danielle moved to Houston nearly a decade ago to start their family. After well over a year of trying to conceive, they were heartbroken to discover they had a problem with infertility. The couple spent their next year trying different drugs and IUI procedures with no luck. Not able to do IVF because they had depleted their savings on procedures and doctor visits, they “completely laid it at God’s feet and said that we would try one last time.”
Finally, Adam and Danielle welcomed their daughter Blayke into the world — but after a few years, they realized they wanted more children. So, their doctor started Danielle out with the same regiment from Danielle’s first pregnancy, and after just two months, it worked. But the family never imagined what was in store.
Read on to find out why the Busby babies broke records and left the medical community (and Mommy) stunned…
Danielle Busby and her husband, Adam, decided to grow their family. Having already experienced a whirlwind of difficulty trying to conceive their first daughter, Danielle prepared herself for a long road to pregnancy.
But in just a couple months, Danielle and Adam were expecting — and this time, they were stunned to find out it was quintuplets! Mom and Dad prepared the house for their four girls and one boy. But they were in for another surprise…
Danielle gave birth to the first all-girl quintuplets born in the United States — and the first all-girl quintuplets born in the whole world since 1969! These are record-breaking babies!
Five medical teams banded together to deliver the babies at Women’s Hospital of Texas. It took just four minutes for Danielle to deliver Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate, and Riley Paige.
Danielle and Adam were already blessed with a 4-year-old daughter, but their desire to grow their family never ceased. As for Blayke, she’s thrilled to be a big sister.
Multiple births are notoriously risky. The more fetuses there are, the greater the chance of pregnancy loss. Doctors attribute Danielle’s highly successful birth and delivery to her focus on keeping herself and her babies healthy. She even tried her very best to stick to a diet of 4,500 calories.
Cases of quintuplets are exceptionally rare. The number of quintuplets and other higher-order births in 2013 totaled just 66 nationwide. These five little ladies are true miracles!
What an incredible, record-breaking family. If this story made you smile, please SHARE it with your friends on Facebook!
