Sextuplets Update

A few days ago, we posted about the two sets of sextuplets that were born within 10 hours of each other. Unfortunately, three of the six Morrison sextuplets from Minnesota have died. I came across their personal site morrison6.com a few days ago after reading an article about them. They are experiencing high traffic, so the site isn't always accessible. According to their site a couple of weeks ago, there were four mothers in the US who were expecting sextuplets:

>>Brianna Morrison (MN) - sextuplets born Sunday, 6/10 at 22 weeks; 4 boys, 2 girls; 3 have passed away.

>>Jennifer Masche (AZ) - sextuplets born Monday, 6/11 at 30 weeks; 3 boys, 3 girls.

>>Karoline Byler (FL) - 5 boys and 1 girl who according to their site will be with them "hopefully in mid-September".

>>Gracie Soldani (CA) - currently 17 weeks pregnant; 5 sacs total, 4 fraternal twins and 1 set of identical twins.

They all have similar stories, fears, excitement and needs with one common thread. All have been asked many times, "How can we help?" So they have set up donation areas on their sites. Please visit and make a donation if you can. They are all asking for lots of prayers too.

I just found your blog and Im so glad! I had just found the Morrison 6 personal website myself a few days ago and read all about their story. Mom and Dad are so young, hopefully they have a great support system. I was so sad to hear of the loss of the three boys, God rest their little souls. It's amazing to me that there are 4 couples with high order multiples...wow!

Anyway, It's great finding your site...Im going to continue browsing through it!
