Every child is special in each family. Each requires an equal amount of love and care that the parents can give them. But, we also can’t deny the fact that there are parents who prefer certain genders for their children.
As for these parents Kateri and Jay Schwandt, all they wanted was to have a girl in the family but despite several pregnancies, they were still given sons.
In total, they already have 14 sons namely Tyler, Zach, Drew, Brandon, Tommy, Vinny, Calvan, Gabe, Wesley, Charlie, Luke, Tucker, Francisco, and Finley.
Finally, after almost 30 years of waiting, they recently welcomed the 17th member of the family, was born at 7 pounds, 8 ounces — Maggie Jayne. Finally a SHE!
The Schwandt family is no longer a stranger to the media because they have been featured several times in their continuous quest for their baby girl. The couple were married back in 1993 after dating as high school freshmen and are both 45-years-old.
According to CNN, back in 2018, when the family welcomed their 14th son, Finley, they choose to not know about the gender of their child before they are born. This adds up to the excitement and the thrill of the family as to what gender will the next child be.
Now that they finally have a girl in the family, it will be quite a while before the boys adjust to this new set-up. But for sure, they are really happy with this new addition to this big family and at the same time be protective of their only and youngest sister.
