Sarah and Bill Imbierowicz of Kokomo, IN are not your ordinary parents. The couple spent years trying to conceive through IVF, experiencing several heartbreaking miscarriages along the way.
Yet through it all, they’ve kept their heads up. It’s amazing that a couple who has been through so much still has such a positive outlook. Fortunately, after three years of IVF, they were able to conceive their first son, Will. A year later, Sarah conceived again: three triplet boys!
Sometimes life is unpredictable like that — like when Andy and Sarah Justice adopted a set of triplets, only to discover they were pregnant with twins weeks later.
“When the kids smile, when they are having fun and stuff, when they accomplish new things, it’s really fun to see that,” Bill said. After having four boys the couple decided to get pregnant again.
But what the ultrasound revealed was nothing short of a miracle… See the rest of the story below!

When Sarah Imbierowicz and her husband Bill were having trouble conceiving, they decided to try IVF. After three years, the couple finally had their first baby boy, Will. A miracle baby in his own right — after implanting four embryos in Sarah’s womb, he was the only one that survived.
“We started out transferring two at a time but we miscarried several times,” Sarah said. “Eventually we got to the point where we decided to transfer four.”
When Will turned 1, the couple thought it was time for a sibling. They underwent IVF again. After implanting three embryos, Sarah and Bill were hoping for just one, but instead got triplet boys. They were shocked, since two of the embryos were believed to be “lower quality.”
Bill was concerned that Sarah would want a daughter, so they decided to get pregnant again. The couple implanted two female embryos hoping for one daughter.
You’re not going to believe what happened next…
When Sarah went in for an ultrasound, the doctor looked a little stunned.
“[The doctor] just got this look on his face, and I said, ‘Oh, no,’ and he said, ‘What do you see?’ and I said, ‘I see two,’ ” Sarah said. “He said, ‘Look again.’ I said, ‘I see three,’ and he said, ‘I see three, too.’ I think the whole room just went quiet at that point. I think we were all just like, ‘Oh.’ “
The two embryos became three baby girls. Yes, Sarah and Bill are parents to two sets of triplets!
“Most of time when you transfer two embryos and get pregnancies it’s because one embryo split and you end up with identical twins,” said Dr. Goldfarb, a fertility specialist.
Sarah and Bill are a little overwhelmed, but they’re definitely excited.
“We’re really excited to have everyone,” Sarah said. “And it’s a bonus that they’re girls – it balances the house out for us.”
Fortunately, they have the resources to care for their ever-growing household.
“I would be lying through my teeth if I said I wasn’t a little overwhelmed,” she said. “But I also know that with the help we have, there’s never going to be a baby not being held or a toddler not being played with. It will all work out.”
