Couple Adopts Triplets, Gets Surprising News

An Oklahoma couple wanted nothing more than to have a baby.

After three and a half years of marriage and no success in getting pregnant, Andy and Sarah Justice decided to turn to adoption, as in vitro fertilization would cost them between $30,000 and $60,000, with about a 10 percent chance of working.

The Justices were paired with a birth mother, and at the first ultrasound, it was revealed the expecting mother was not just pregnant, but pregnant with triplets. 

The couple was shocked, but excited to finally have their babies.

The triplets, Joel, Hannah and Elizabeth, were born two months early, weighing only 3 pounds each. They remained in neonatal intensive care.

A week after the triplets' birth, Sarah had her own doctor's appointment, where she got some surprising news: She was pregnant -- with twins.

"We were very happy," Sarah told TulsaWorld. "Did we panic a little? Of course. But we were very happy. We really felt this was something God wanted us to do. And sometimes, when you follow God's will in one thing, it leads to the next thing."

The Justice family grew from two to seven within a year after the twins, Abigail and Andrew, were born.

The couple says they go through about 84 bottles and 300 diapers every week.

"We don't sleep much, obviously," Andy told TulsaWorld. "We don't sit down much either."

Despite the stress of having five babies at once, the Justices consider all of their babies a blessing and wouldn't change a thing.
