A Nigerian Couple identified as Mrs Arinze and Blessing Uzoagu has taken to social media sharing their testimony as they welcomed Quadruplets after years of waiting, failing I.V.F and I.U.I. The couple welcomed quadruplets, three girls and a boy, early April, 2022, after six years of waiting. Taking to Facebook on Sunday, May 1, he prayed that couples who are waiting on God for children would stay awake at night for good reasons.
“For those couples waiting to have a child in their various homes. To my fellow men I will tell you this, I do wake up before this time of the night sometimes. All bothered and thinking,” he wrote. “Well, I am awake tonight not bothered or thinking. Three out of my four children woke up at the same time. So I am awake for a different reason…..a good reason.
“I pray you will be like me by this time next year. Nwanne your sleep will no longer be cut short because of worries. Your sleep will be cut short because you are a new father…playing the new fatherly role to your newborn. This is my prayer for you tonight” he added.
Meanwhile, below is what he had earlier shared after the birth of their quadruplets: “Let me tell you at this juncture that my wife and I had our traditional marriage on the 30th of December, 2015. Our church wedding was exactly a year after, 30th December, 2016. During this period, we have been to several hospitals around Nigeria seeking JUST A CHILD TO CALL US DADDY AND MUMMY.” “In our sojourn, we have had 2 failed I.V.Fs and one failed I.U.I. When these three experiences didn’t k.i.l.l us or break us or make us abandon our faith, it became apparent that nothing else can. But we never lost hope. We believed. We trusted and we obeyed. So when sometime in August the results said my wife was pregnant, our joy knew no bounds. We asked God to lead us through and this God that I serve did not disappoint.”
“For the records, in the course of these 9 months. My wife had no com.plic.ations, no challenges and was in a panicky situation. Not one whatsoever. So at some minutes past 7am this morning. My sister positioned at the corridor leading to the entrance of the hospital’s theater as my wife was wh.ee.led in. My mum led as we sang the hymns for some minutes, until the unthinkable happened.” “One of the nurses emerged from the theater and asked ‘oga you are the husband right?’ I said yes. Congratulations, he said. Your wife has just been delivered of a set of quadruplets. I was ᴅᴜᴍʙꜰᴏᴜɴᴅᴇᴅ. I am still ᴅᴜᴍʙꜰᴏᴜɴᴅᴇᴅ. We asked for years just for a child to call our own.”
