Good Things Come In Three? Parents Have 3 Pairs Of Twins Who Share Same Birthday
A couple from Wisconsin always longed for a big family. Doctors, however, told Carrie Kosinski and Craig Kosinski they won't be able to have children naturally, so they decided to adopt.
A pregnant acquaintance approached the couple and asked them if they would want to adopt her baby. They later learned she was having twins, Adalynn and Kenna, who were born on Feb. 28, 2014, as per Inside Edition.
The next year, the woman would once again knock on their door and ask the Kosinskis if they would like to adopt her older set of twins because she could no longer take care of them. JJ and CeCe were born a year earlier than Adalynn and Kenna, on Feb. 28, 2013.
The Kosinki couple agreed to take in the other set of twins because they wanted all siblings to grow up together. The Kosinskis got help for the second adoption grant from One Foundation. The twins' adoptions remained in the stages of completion and awaiting finalization.
"We'd started the process of adopting the [now] 3-year-old twins when the birth mom contacted us about taking the [now] 4-year-old twins," Carrie told People. The couple said this made the adoption process more affordable than two separate adoptions.
Carrie became pregnant through IVF in 2015 and while in the middle of the adoption process. They later learned both eggs successfully fertilized and they were having a pair of twins.
"We were very shocked," Carrie said. "We were like 'oh my God we are going to have three sets of twins. What are we going to do with ourselves?'"
Carrie gave birth at 24 weeks due to developmental issues. She underwent a C-section on Feb. 28. "We only have to remember the same birthday, which is nice, but they are probably going to hate it when they older," the mom said.
The couple hopes the adoption of both twins will be official in June. They have also set up a Go Fund Me page to make it all happen.
