Woman, 56, gives birth to twins after 31 years of marriage

By The Rainbow

A 56-year-old woman has defied the laws of nature and given birth after 31 years of marriage.

Mary Anike Ajayi had a hitch free natural delivery and gave birth to a set of twin girls much to the amazement and awe of her friends and family.

The twins have been named Goodness and Mercy by their overjoyed mother and their father who is no spring chicken himself at 64 years of age.

Daily Trust reports:

Weekly Trust gathered that the couple tied the nuptial knot on December 18, 1982. Until now, both had vainly waited on the Lord for the fruit of the womb. And for those trying years, she lamented, it was so challenging. 'I was traumatized psychologically and felt like giving up hope of ever carrying my own children,' she said.

However, Mrs. Ajayi, who teaches at the Muslim College, Oke-Ila, Ado-Ekiti could not hide her joy on September 29, when she entered the labour room and after 15 minutes of labour, he became the proud mother of twins.

The highly elated mother said: 'I got married to my husband on December 18, 1982 and since then I have been waiting on the Lord for the fruit of the womb but to no avail. The experience of 31 years is not a joke. It is through the grace of God that I was able to sail through it.

'At times, I would be unhappy and depressed, even in the midst of my colleagues and friends when they are rejoicing for one thing or the other. But in the Church of the Lord where I worship, they would call us out and pray for those of us looking for the fruits of the womb. That gave me the courage to trust in God that one day God in His mercy would answer my prayer and it happened,' she recounted.

God's time is de best truly. I commend her not to have seeked native doctor's charm(juju) but keep faith and trust in God for 31 yrs. Ones destiny cannot be denied but rather delayed. She is destined to have a child in her life's time. So be it.
