Children are such a blessing and many couples can't wait to start a family after getting married. However try to imagine going from being totally childless, to having six children in a span of less than four years! Seem far-fetched and impossible to you? Well, this is exactly what happened to Carrie and Craig Kosinski; a couple from Wisconsin in The United States of America, who once thought their dream of being parents, would never materialize. To make matters even more interesting and extraordinary, all six the couples' children (who are three sets of twins), share exactly the same birthday!
Are you curious yet? Well then without any further added mystery or suspense, read below for the full fascinating and intriguing story of just how the Kosinski family became a full household of eight people; in an incredibly short time frame.

Not long after getting married, Carrie and Craig Kosinski were told that due to Carrie's endometriosis, having children naturally would not be a possibility.
The news of their infertility devastated the couple.
The couple had always planned to adopt children (even if they could have their own kids biologically). However, a huge surprise awaited the couple in the form of a request from an acquaintance.
According to people.com, "In July 2013, an acquaintance who was several months pregnant contacted [Carrie] on Facebook to see if she and her husband wanted to adopt her baby. They agreed - but didn't find out until later she was actually expecting twins. Adalynn and Kenna were born on Feb. 28, 2014."
The couple were totally thrilled and overjoyed to finally have the family they thought they might never have.
In 2014, the same woman who contacted Carrie to adopt her twins the previous year, contacted the couple again to say that she could no longer take care of her other, older set of twins, who were incidentally born on the 28th of February in 2013 (an exact year before the twins Carrie and Craig had adopted).
The reason for the woman's contact was to enquire on whether Carrie and Craig would also like to adopt her older set of twins that she was now having difficulty supporting. The couple agreed and JJ and CeCe officially joined the Kosinski family!
The Kosinski family officially had four children in it now (with the addition of JJ and CeCe).
On 28th of February last year (2016), Carrie gave birth to her own biological miracle babies thanks to IVF!

Needless to say that February the 28th is now officially the busiest time of the year in the Kosinski household with six birthdays to celebrate!
Carrie told People Magazine "[w]e did it backward, we were going to have our own kids first then adopt but apparently God had other plans for us."
Needless to say, the couple and their children have become a social media sensation; with various video clips retelling their story having been made. Below I have decided to share some of these with you:
Although the couple now have many children and are probably busy 24/7 taking care of them, one thing is very clear to me and that is that the Kosinski family looks very happy indeed.
