Almost 18 years ago, Kenny and Bobbie McCaughey made history when they gave birth to the world’s first surviving septuplets. Bobby and her husband declined having selective reduction after learning they were pregnant with seven children after fertility treatment. They decided to leave it in God’s hands, and now these babies are about to celebrate their 18th birthday as they prepare to head out into the world as adults. They were born in Des Moines, Iowa and Bobbie says the time has flown with these seven children against all odds. How fun to see them growing up and how they describe one another. What a wonderful family and they all say it has been wonderful growing up together.
