Bobby and Kenny McCaughey already had one offspring in the family, but they lacked another one for complete happiness. For health reasons, Kenny could not get pregnant for a long time, and the couple decided to have IVF. 7 embryos were used, as the practice showed that only one takes root. But the unexpected happened, all the embryos survived. In 1997, all seven offspring were born. It was a real miracle. All the offspring weighed about one and a half kilograms at birth, unfortunately two were diagnosed with cerebral palsy, but soon after several operations they were able to get on their feet and walk.
