With 12 kids, Courtney spent a lot of time being pregnant. However, the mother in this next story had all six of her children in one single go! Here is her journey.
After years of trying to conceive naturally, and after a first pregnancy which ended tragically, Rozonno and Mia McGhee were about to be blessed, not only with one child but with a magnificent set of six.
After almost giving up on their dream, and after embracing the fact that they will never be parents, the McGhees became one of the most famous ones in Columbus, Ohio, as no other sextuplet family has ever been recorded there before.
One on Twelve
People ask her how she manages to give all of her kids the attention each one needs. How does she manage to give each one those few precious one-of-one hours that every child must have with their parents? Courtney finds this funny and even gives a great argument.
She says that those parents who ask how she divides herself between so many little souls are the same ones who send their kids to school every morning and don't see them until the late hours of the afternoon. Courtney homeschools, and her kids are with her all day long.
A Look to the Future
One of the greatest things that keep Courtney and Chris going is the future. They are looking forward to seeing these twelve babies, toddlers, and children grow into individuals. They look forward to seeing them become adults with different beliefs and different ways.
Courtney and Chris know that their investment in the present will turn into a gift in the future, as they hope these precious siblings will grow as unique individuals within one big, embracing, and loving unit.
Mia's and Rozonno's Story
Mia and Rozonno had their fair share of bad luck when it came to building their own family. The most private moments of Mia's life had to be exposed to doctors and she was almost deprived of her biggest purpose in life.
We want to take you back to the early days of this astonishing story, where it all began and weaved its shape. Even today, more than a decade later, these six children (and parents) continue to amaze us. This is their story.
At the Begining
Rozonno and Mia McGhee go back many years. They met when they were both in their teens. It was love at first sight and Mia knew straight away that Rozonno was the one with whom she would fulfill her biggest dream — becoming a mother.
Forming a strong and happy family was her biggest wish in life, as she herself came from a single-parent household. She knew early in life that she would be the best mother there is, and knew Rozonno would complete her. Together they would bring new lives into this world.
