Maxine and Jake Young from Pennsylvania thought they were meant to be together the day they started dating. They were aware that they want a sizable family with numerous children. But did they ever think they’d end up raising nine children as parents? Actually, not quite.
They got married in 2016 and went to a foster training in the beginning of 2017. Following its completion, the Youngs took in three kids, ages 2, 4, and 11 months, as foster children. They soon welcomed another baby, the sibling of the children they had already fostered, into their hearts and home.
Having four children was wonderful. According to what Jacob’s mother said on GoFundMe, “Jacob was completely on board and loved the idea of having a house filled with lots of love and laughter, maybe a little bit of chaos too!”
Maxine and Jacob both want a biological kid despite already having a full plate. This wasn’t actually simple because she had to go through a lot of treatments, including IVF and IUI, before they welcomed their son Henry into the world in October 2018.
Although everyone believed that the Youngs’ family was now complete, God determined that despite what wonderful parents they were, he had different plans for them.
Maxine noticed some weird symptoms, and her heart was telling her she was expecting once again. She wasn’t certain, though, because she didn’t think she could conceive naturally given that she knew she got her kid via IVF, but her gut instinct didn’t let her down.
Things got intriguing on the initial doctor’s visit. “I saw the doctor had a shocked expression on her face as soon as the scan began. When you glanced at the screen, it was extremely obvious that there were three pregnancy sacs, all almost the same size, as well as yolk sacs and even fetal poles. “Well, it looks like there are three babies growing in there,” she added as she turned to face me. I asked her if everything looked normal and if the kids were measuring on pace, and she said they were, exactly 6 weeks old. I then started nervously laughing and was in full shock. The following week I had another scan planned, Maxine noted on Instagram.
However, there were four newborns instead of three, and they arrived only a few weeks after Youngs’ foster children were legally adopted.
“Meeting the infants was an unforgettable experience. The pain and worry from the previous few months were instantly forgotten, and everything we had to endure was suddenly worth it, the proud and happy mother wrote on Facebook.
Maxine exclaims with joy, “Fortunately, they’re all doing pretty well, and we’re really fortunate.
We hope the future is bright for this lovely, large family. They are all ecstatic to have each other.
