The amazing story of Adeboye Taiwo and his wife Ajibola teaches us that we should never give up on our dreams no matter the obstacles and the difficulties that come along the way. And if we feel as there is no way out, we should always remember that God has better plans for us.
The Nigerian couple had been married for 17 years, but they couldn’t have children. Adeboye’s family and friends even told him to get a divorce and get himself another wife who could give him the baby he wanted so badly.
Needless to say, he never though of leaving his wife, despite what everyone advised him.
In the fight against infertility, the couple spent around $213,000, and although it seemed that all the effort was in vain, they refused to give up on becoming parents one day.
“I made it known to them that I love my wife so deeply,” he told the Standard. “I assured them that my wife, Ajibola, would surely give birth to baby for me at God’s own time and in His season.”
And Abeboye’s faith paid off big time.
“I was excited,” Adeboye told CNN. “For the very first time, we were expecting.”
To everyone’s surprise, Ajibola was caring not one, not two, but six babies.
This brave mother gave birth at only 30-weeks pregnant via c-section. They welcomed their bundles of joy and were over the moon with the adorable sextuplets of three boys and three girls. We are sure the Taiwos will have so much fun with that many children under one roof.
The babies were delivered at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU Virginia. Team of around 40 doctors and other staff was preparing for the big arrival weeks in advance making sure everything goes as smoothly as planned.
The babies were tiniest but the cutest little creatures the hospital staff has ever seen.
“The team quickly assembled to begin prenatal management and delivery planning including pre-delivery drills and resuscitation exercises. A typical labor and delivery shift includes one, perhaps two premature births, usually with time in between. We had to coordinate with our colleagues in the NICU for six premature babies to be delivered simultaneously,” the hospital’s medical director of labor and delivery, Dr. Susan lanni, said in the press release.
“I hope for the smallest of my six children to grow up and say, ‘I was so small, and look at me now,’” Ajibola said.
Thanks to the doctors, the babies are doing great. The parents are extremely grateful for everything the staff does for their children.
“The medical team is excellent in medicine and hospitality,” Adeboye said in the statement. “We are far from home but the medical team is our family. That is what got us this far.”
However, the hospital staff says how the parents were willing to collaborate, which resulted with a positive outcome in the process of complete recovery.
“We’re going through this extraordinary journey together with the family,” Ronald Ramus, M.D., director of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at VCU Medical Center, said. “It’s not every day that parents bring home sextuplets. Mrs. Taiwo was eating, sleeping and breathing for seven. A lot of the support and encouragement we gave her to make it as far as she did was important, and one of the biggest contributions we made as a team.”
