Everyone has their own amazing journey that would really encourage us. It is so amazing to know the story of John and Kate Gosselin, a couple who were blessed with 8 darling angels in just two-births time.

It all started when Jon and kate met on October 5, 1997 at a picnic. Kate said, she never believed in love at first sight, but that instant came really close. She saw Jon walking across the grass and she was instantly intrigued.

…"Our eyes met and continued to meet from across the way all afternoon. Finally, I arranged for someone to introduce us…and the rest is history!" -Kate-

They got married at a friend’s home in Wyomissing under a white tent with tons of beautiful flowers…A perfect garden wedding with equally perfect weather on June 12, 1999. It was truly a beautiful thing!, They wanted children right away, but didn't have it very soon as Kate had PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and thus have problem ovulating.. But God is so good all the time, with the help of a fertily doctor , they've have twins not for a longer time. Cara Nicole and Madelyn Kate were born that October 2000.

Then after a long story of convincing Jon, they decided to try "for just One more baby". They call it their "round two" It was a series of failure trying to conceive. Then at long last, a month came when the cycle was perfect.Everything went great! She was told she had 3 with a possibility of 4 follicles, and that was a great cycle! The only thing that made their doctor nervous was the fact that they were absolutely opposed to reduction and that they were concerned about multiples again. They prayed about this and just like our peace about returning in October for this cycle, they felt peace about proceeding. So they did!

"Five weeks later, (after my hospitalization for over stimulated ovaries) we were at our initial ultrasound and learned the news. I will never forget this day as long as I live. There were seven sacs with four yolk sacs, or babies in four of them. At the count of four, I was scared. At five I started crying and at six I was shaking absolutely sobbing. Jon had turned from the screen, he couldn’t look anymore. I have never seen him so close to tears in my life! The doctor “reassured” us by telling us we would talk about reduction. I pulled myself together and stared right at him and said “We’re not doing reduction!” - Kate"

And so they did have six amazing babies. Sextuplets.The sextuplets were born at 30 weeks, at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Kate Gosselin remained hospitalized for several weeks before her delivery. Alexis Faith was the first baby born, at 7:51 a.m. She weighed 2 lbs.11.5 oz. Next was Hannah Joy at 2 lbs. 11 oz., then Aaden Jonathan, the smallest baby, weighing 2 lbs. 7.5 oz. Another boy, Collin Thomas, followed weighing 3 lbs. .5oz. and then Leah Hope was born weighing 2 lbs. 14.8oz. Finally, Joel Kevin arrived at 7:54 a.m., weighing 2 lbs. 9.7oz.

It's really amazing how God blessed them. They asked for "just one more" but God gave them "six more"..

"I did not know that when God chose to give us six babies, sextuplets, that when He assured us that He would provide for us, that He meant it would be the way He has. I am GLAD that I did not know that then! It would have been way too overwhelming for us! This journey has been so tough yet so amazing! God has taught us so many lessons yet has blessed us immeasurably!"- Kate Gosselin
