Cara Winhold and her husband Blake wanted to give a little brother or sister to their first child, Wyatt, but their attempts had proved very difficult: Cara had three miscarriages, the last of which nearly cost her her life.
However, the ray of hope shone through, and Cara got pregnant again. This was an important achievement in itself, but made even more incredible by the discovery the couple had after Cara’s second ultrasound she wasn’t expecting just one child, but two.
“When the doctor told me I got pregnant while I was already pregnant,” Cara explained, “I asked him how it could have happened. He replied that I most likely ovulated twice, I released two eggs and they were fertilized at different times, about a week apart from each other “.
The twins, Colson and Cayden, who were born into the world in October 2021, were a real miracle for Cara: “I believe 100% that it was a miracle for everything that has happened to me since having my first child. I like to believe that it was a way of getting back the two children that I had lost in my miscarriages. I see no other explanation. Besides, there are no cases of twins in my family, so I really believe this is a miracle. ”
The twins have always been of different sizes because one of the two, Colson, was fertilized two weeks ahead of his little brother in terms of growth by the end of her pregnancy.
Cara wanted to send a message of hope to all those mothers and couples who want a child with all their hearts, but who, for whatever reason, cannot achieve their goal: “Even if for some reason it seemed like I could not have another child, we knew that the desire for more children was written in our fate. If it’s in your fate, your heart and your calling, then don’t give up because we didn’t and we got a huge surprise and a wonderful miracle “.
