Six tiny babies, forming the most beautiful rainbow. The fraternal siblings who was born more than 10 weeks early have just arrived home. Their first photo shoot is ʙʀᴇᴀᴛʜᴛᴀᴋɪɴɢ.
6 little Fɪɢʜᴛᴇʀs have also been bestowed the most magnificent names – and with three older brothers named Saylor, Wells and Bridge they had a lot to live up to.
A miracle six times over
Eric and Courtney Waldrop have been sweethearts since school, and this couple always wished for a big family. They could never have imagined just how big it would get. The Alabama couple had first son Saylor in 2008, before using Fᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛs to have their twins Wales and Bridge in 2012.
After Courtney had suffered a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ finally, she became pregnant – with not one, but six babies. They had been told by doctors the chance of having another multiple pregnancy was low. But once they heard the ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙᴇᴀᴛs they say they knew everything would work out.
On their Facebook page, they sʜᴀʀᴇᴅ ᴛʜᴇɪʀ ᴊᴏᴜʀɴᴇʏ and ven held a public ɢᴇɴᴅᴇʀ ʀᴇᴠᴇᴀʟ, watch the video below. The three ɢɪʀʟs and three ʙᴏʏs were born on December 11, 2017, the family naming their new additions: Blu, Layke, Rawlings, Rayne, Tag and Rivers.
After several weeks in hospital, the sᴇxᴛᴜᴘʟᴇᴛs were allowed home just a couple of days ago, and to celebrate they had their photos taken.
“It takes sunshine and rain to make a rainbow. Can you imagine the Fᴇᴀʀ ᴀɴᴅ sᴛʀᴇss you would have as a mother being told you are pregnant with six? Mixed with so much joy in knowing that within you life is growing.”, photographer Ashley Sargent said.
“Six miracles were born … yes, I said miracles. Because the ᴏᴅᴅs were against them … the ᴏᴅᴅs of all of six babies at one time … the ᴏᴅᴅs of the babies sᴜʀᴠɪᴠɪɴɢ at all … the ᴏᴅᴅs of two parents accepting them all and choosing life regardless of the surprising news … you babies are miracles. There is a ᴛʀᴇᴍᴇɴᴅᴏᴜs ᴘᴜʀᴘᴏsᴇ for your life. You will shake the world. Because after every storm … there is a rainbow.”
