Amanda and Nathan brought four children into the world in three years. The decision was made after realizing that they needed people to build a home.
Amanda Ralls, 34, and her husband, Nathan, 35, made the decision to spend all of their $96,000 savings they were saving for a house on I.V.F. They build the family they’ve always wanted in three years, one pregnancy after the other.
The couple from Orange County, California, in the United States, have four children: Anderson, 4, Penelope, 2, and twins Finley and Foster, 1 year old. This choice happened after a conversation, when we reached the conclusion that building a home depends on having people live in it.
When she was trying to get pregnant, a fight against ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ that lasted three years, Amanda discovered the ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsɪs of Pᴏʟʏᴄʏsᴛɪᴄ Oᴠᴀʀʏ Sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ, which made the two opt for ɪɴ ᴠɪᴛʀᴏ ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴢᴀᴛɪᴏɴ.
The couple lives with Amanda’s parents; if it weren’t for them having a place to stay and their support, they wouldn’t have been able to pay for the I.V.F ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ and are so happy to have the children. “My husband told me there was no point in having a house if we didn’t have someone to install it,” she said.
“Having a nice house is one thing, but for me, having children is more important,” said the mother. “Having four children in three years has been a lot to handle, but our family is now complete, and we are so happy.”
“We will never be able to thank our doctor enough and her staff for everything that they do for families struggling with ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ and the help they have provided us throughout the years,” she added.
The first ɪɴsᴇᴍɪɴᴀᴛɪᴏɴ took place in July 2016, giving birth to the eldest son, Anderson, now 4 years old, in May 2017. The following year, in 2018, Penelope came, and finally the twins Finley and Foster were born in June 2020. The mother told the newspaper that she loved being pregnant every time.
“I loved being pregnant. I wish I could be pregnant every day. I just couldn’t wait to meet each of my babies. When I found out I was pregnant with twins, I was ecstatic. I told Nathan we were going to have a soccer team.”
Before the twins were born, Amanda said that she always wanted to have three children. She went through the ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴢᴀᴛɪᴏɴ procedure for the third time in June 2019, but the two ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏs ended up not working out. In the same year, in October, they decided to try again and got the newest ones in June 2020.
