Annie and her husband tried to have kids for five long years and were never able to get pregnant, they experienced the pain and frustration of infertility. Not once did Annie see a positive pregnancy test in spite of their numerous endeavors. Just as the couple was about to give up all hope, Annie’s older sister Chrissy offered to be their surrogate.
Instead of implanting embryos into only Chrissy, however, Annie decided to give it one more attempt also. After all, the sisters were on the same cycle, and they wanted to increase their odds of having at least one baby. Chrissy was already a mom, and she wanted to do whatever she could to help her sister experience motherhood for herself.
It was time for the pregnancy results and sisters were completely dazed when their doctor called with a “double whammy.” Not only was Chrissy pregnant, but so was Annie and that’s NOT even the best part. Both sisters were pregnant with twins! Annie was carrying the girls, and Chrissy was carrying the boys.
And soon after the miracle quads were born Charlie, Tommy, Grace and Hadley. They were born to grateful parents and one very selfless, loving aunt. It may be an unconventional birth story, yet that is decisively what makes it so incredible.
