Bobbi was suffering intense pain, strain, and soreness which was almost unbearable. On the other hand, the doctors were getting doubtful about a successful delivery. Unaware of their future, Bobbi and Kenny were finding peace in prayers. The doctors left them in a more complicated situation.
As soon as the news was aired about their unusual pregnancy, people became interested in knowing about further updates. Due to Bobbi’s rare conditions, doctors have to be observant. After looking at the huge risk involved in the pregnancy, doctors came up with a suggestion which was criticized by a few people and supported by many. But at the end of the day, it was Bobbi and Kenny’s final decision.
Alternative Of Being Selective?
Doctors highly recommended the couple with the option of “selective reduction.” This meant aborting the embryos that have fewer chances to survive and keeping the embryos which have more survival chances. This was a controversial suggestion and everyone came up with their piece of advice for Bobbi and Kenny. However, being the parents, the couple was to make an official statement.
In His Hands
The expectant parents discussed it with their family and friends. The couple took their time together and that’s when both of them discussed the whole thing. At last, they came up with the words,“ in God’s hands.” Bobbi couldn’t give up on any infant life growing inside her. The couple’s strong faith in God gave them a bit of relief but just for a while.
No Turning Back
Since the day, Bobbi and Kenny got the news about septuplets, there was no turning back in their lives from that moment. They knew they have to manage their future financially as well as emotionally. They were supposed to be more cautious and more aware of everything. But how to be aware of something which no one around them had known about? No one in their knowledge had ever seen anyone having septuplets ever before Bobbi.
Appreciated And Accused
Bobbi and Kenny’s decision to keep faith in God brought them into the instant limelight. After their refusal to doctors’ suggestion, the couple was receiving letters from across the country. Everyone wasn’t happy with them. The couple recalled, “in the beginning, for every ten letters we would get that were happy for us, we’d get one letter accusing us of exploiting the kids and being selfish to waste the world’s resources on a family this big.” They decided not to pay attention to any negativity and focus on what was more important.
