Summary

After the emotional rollercoaster ride of dealing with infertility, Kate and her husband, Jon, rejoiced in the birth of their twin daughters. Three years later, they were pregnant again--with sextuplets. Their quiver was filling fast--a little too fast--and happy wasn't exactly their first reaction. I blinked hard and then stared at the bright screen positioned slightly to my right. There was no mistaking what I saw; yet, I was in a state of denial. Dr. Munabi began his fateful count. One ... aaah. Two ... okay. Three ... now I was scared. Four ... I started sobbing hysterically. The chill of reality washed over me as I watched my husband, my best friend, cheerleader, and storehouse of strength, slowly drop to his knees at the count of five ... but the count continued. And so it began. Though encouraged to consider selective reduction--both for the sake of Kate's health and to increase the babies' chances for survival--the Gosselins opted to play the hand God had dealt them. They accepted the six miraculous blessings and all the challenges that came with them. After struggling to carry and deliver all six babies, then coping with months of neonatal intensive care, Jon and Kate think they've made it through the hardest part of the journey. Not even close. Stress-filled days and sleepless nights became their world as she and Jon managed to feed, bathe, clothe, and monitor, the health of their fragile infants without losing sight of their love for each other and the twins. Candid, honest, and emotionally-charged, Multiple Blessings is first and foremost a story of faith. It's the story of slogging through exhausting challenges, coping with setbacks, and trusting that God will provide the strength and resilience to get through each day.
