Carrie and Craig Kosinski agreed to look after a old friend’s young twins when she got in touch with them about it.
Carrie and Craig offered to temporarily assume custody of the adorable girls.
Days turned into weeks, and weeks into months, and eventually the girls were a permanent part of the family.
For Carrie and Craig, having kids had always been a goal, but they had no clue how their journey would turn out.
The births of Adalynn and Kenna occurred on February 28, 2014. The twins were born through emergency C-section, and at the age of three months, the Kosinkis were granted legal custody of the infant girls.
After a few years of parenting their adopted twins, Carrie and Craig got a call from their original mother, who revealed that she was dealing with yet another tragic circumstance.
She was battling to make everything run while dealing with serious challenges in her life. She questioned the family if they would be open to adopting her two younger kids, Cece and J.J., twins who are two years old.
These younger twins were biologically related to Kenna and Adalynn.
Carrie and Craig, who are from Union Grove, Wisconsin, had to consider their options carefully.
The couple had made several unsuccessful efforts to become pregnant before beginning the adoption decision with Kenna and Adalynn.
They sought medical attention because they had no idea what was wrong for a while, and the doctor broke some devastating news.
The medical professional informed Carrie that due to her severe endometriosis, she was unable to conceive naturally. Therefore, having biological children was essentially out of the question; this is why they initially turned to adoption.
Carrie shared: “It was a difficult decision. We were trying to get pregnant ourselves. But they were siblings so that was definitely was part of our consideration — we wanted to keep the siblings together.”
Carrie and Craig, however, put aside their private worries and informed the mom that they would be delighted to welcome the younger twins.
But not long after welcome Cece and J.J. into the family, Carrie started to feel strange and knew she needed to see a doctor.
An ultrasound in September 2015 confirmed Carrie’s own pregnancy. Actually, there were two fetuses visible on the screen! In the past five years, she and Craig have welcomed three sets of twins.
Carrie said: ”We were in shock, but super happy.”
Craig and Carrie understood their pregnancy was a gift from a higher power, despite their initially overwhelmed. All six of the children would be raised in a secure, loving home, the parents promised.
Unbelievably, the two adopted sets of twins were born on February 28th, the same day that biological twins Karraline and Clarissa were born.
Carrie confided: ”We were very shocked. We were like ‘oh my God we are going to have three sets of twins. What are we going to do with ourselves?’”
The fact that every kid of Carrie and Craig has the same birthday serves as a strong indication to the thankful parents that this was meant to be.
The Journal Times quotes Carrie as saying, “God obviously has a sense of humor.”
In week 25 of her pregnancy, Carrie used in vitro fertilization to give birth to Karraline and Clarissa. Sadly, their biological twins had to stay in neonatal critical care for several months. Karraline and Clarissa, however, were in good health and shape when they were eventually permitted to return home.
Three pairs of twins living under one roof is obviously expensive, but several members of the neighborhood have provided financial assistance.
Kind strangers from around the nation provided the family with financial assistance to cover their rising bills and expensive charges through fundraising websites like GoFundMe and AdoptTogether.
Craig and Carrie believe that someone from above had a particular plan for their family because all six of their children were born on the same day: Cece and J.J. on February 28, 2013, Adalynn and Kenna on February 28, 2014, and Karraline and Clarissa on February 28, 2016.
Today, this family is content with their lives, and Carrie and Craig must count it a great privilege to watch all of these adorable children mature.
