Like many couples who have trouble producing children, Jake and Maxine Young pursued both adoption and fertility treatments. In 2017, they accepted an emergency placement of four foster children. Then Maxine became pregnant. They pursued the adoption of their foster children, which became final two years later, but their life went into overdrive soon afterward.
“It was chaos,” she said. “We went from zero to five within less than a year.”
The family took things day by day, never expecting to add any more children to the mix, but mere weeks after finalizing the adoption in December 2019, Maxine and Jake were in for the surprise of a lifetime.
Maxine was pregnant – with quadruplets.
“I didn’t even think that I could get pregnant without doing IVF [in vitro fertilization] or IUI [intrauterine insemination], which we had to do with our son. I remember texting him and was like, ‘Oh my God,’” Maxine said.
