Janet and Graham Walton wanted children just like many other families. But they had no idea how they would suddenly become parents of a huge family instead of only one or two infants. The couple almost gave up after 12 failures , had to go through countless challenges and pain both physically and mentally and finally luck smiled on the person who never gave up hope, who didn’t give up after 13 tries, Janet became pregnant.
Janet and Graham were astonished by their good fortune. But soon they were in for another surprise. They eagerly anticipated visiting the doctor and could not wait for the first ultrasound. Unexpectedly, an ultrasound at 8 weeks revealed that the couple was expecting not one, but six children. They had not anticipated having six children, especially all at once, so it came as a huge shock. Six healthy girls were born by a lady in 1983 on November 18. New tests are being done for young parents here. Each year, Janet and Graham spent $11,000 on diapers because they didn’t have time to stop between feeding, changing diapers, bathing, and changing the kids’ clothes. Even one child would find this challenging, let alone six daughters. A big family’s lifestyle hardly qualifies as boring.
“We have always been proud of our children, especially how well the girls get along. “Recalls the pleased father, they were friends from an early age, and nothing has changed over the years. The first gears of the world are now 34 years old. Others went on to have prosperous careers while others got married and established their own families.
The family recently took a collective vacation. Along with their parents, Hannah, Lucy, Jenny, Ruth, Kate, and Sarah enjoyed a memorable trip to New York. Sarah was the first to give her parents a grandchild, which made them pleased. She gave birth to a girl in 2014 who was given the name Yorgi. “We are happy that we have six girls since it means that our family will expand six times more quickly! Because there was just not enough time, we were unable to completely appreciate every step of growing up as females. However, everything will be different once we have grandkids.” declares Janet.
Yorgi is fortunate since she will have five wonderful aunts to look after her in addition to her parents and grandparents. Now that Graham and Janet have enough free time, they can relish spending it with their young granddaughter. We anticipate that they will soon start adding grandchildren on a yearly basis, expanding their family.
