For many couples, it does not take long to get pregnant after marrying, but for others, it takes years of waiting, with some even giving up along the way. One couple had to wait eight years before finally starting their own family.
For a couple in Kenya, giving up on having children was not an option, they waited and waited until God said it was their time to celebrate not just one, but several bundles of joy.
Boniface Wambua and Caroline Kathini were on Monday, September 2 blessed with triplets after their long wait came to an end, Citizen TV reported.
“Children come from God. If you’re married and have no kids, do not give up on the marriage… do not despair. This is a big miracle to us,” said Kathini.
Wambua, 39, and his 38-year-old wife had waited for eight years when they finally received their three-fold blessing.
The woman, who operates a salon in the town, safely delivered the triplets - all baby boys - through C-section in what she could least describe as a miracle.
Her husband, an Administration Police (AP) officer who was left crippled following a road accident, was overjoyed and lost for words as he witnesses his three sons coming into the world, Briefly.co.za learnt.
