A couple from Nigeria is celebrating after welcoming twins following a fertility journey that lasted 27 years
The couple, who are doctors from the Cross River State Capital, dedicated their children, a boy, and a girl, at a church service on Sunday, December 13, according to the Yabaleft news website.
Dr Mike and Modupe Obiora married in December 1993 and said they had been praying for children since then and were finally blessed in 2020
Dr Modupe thanked everyone who had prayed for the couple over the years including her mother-in-law and sister-in-law.
She said, “I want to thank God because he is God indeed. When people have written you off, when doctors said it was not possible, God of possibility will show on the screen, He will show up in your case and that is what he did for me.
“Everyone who prayed we are seeing the result of those prayers. God did not do one but double. God wiped away my tears, my secret tears. He put laughter in my mouth. All my questions, why me, he answered them.”
Dr Modupe also thanked her husband and family members for their continued support and prayers.
