Identical triplets born to 46-year-old Audrey Tiberius, even after one doctor said it would never happen, have the mom rejoicing. Her prayers were answered in more ways than one!
Audrey had dreamed of having a big family. She felt called to be a mom. Even though she was already a mom to four boys, she had dreamed of having more kids. In fact, her magic number of kids would be a healthy brood of seven.
A doctor told her in her forties that her “eggs were too old,” and she would never conceive again on her own. She even went through several rounds of fertility treatments. Yet each round failed. But she still held her prayers close to her heart and God even closer.
“I prayed and prayed for five years to have more children because I always wanted a really big family, and seven was kind of my number,” Audrey said.
Even though it seemed like her prayers for a bigger family seemed to go unanswered, God was already at work.
Mom’s Prayers Answered, Identical Triplets Born
When Audrey and her husband Tyler assumed the doors had been closed to expanding their family, God showed up in a miraculous way. Audrey learned she was pregnant.
Not only did she conceive naturally, but she was also carrying three baby boys! The identical triplets were born and the couple named them Sky, River, and Bay.
Audrey’s dream of seven kids had been answered. Then she learned the chances of her conceiving triplets naturally is one in 200 million. Statistically speaking, the odds were stacked against her. She then learned the odds of being 45 years old and conceiving triplets is one in 20 billion!
“The odds of this happening are so incredibly rare that to me it just has to be a miracle,” Audrey said.
The saying is true, God does answer prayer. It may not be how we imagined, nor may it be on our timelines. Audrey had prayed for five years. Yet, in God’s goodness, he answered her prayers in a way that no one can dispute as it being miraculous. We can only look at Audrey’s story and praise God for his wisdom, love, goodness, and timing. What a beautiful, reassuring reminder of God’s promises.
