Amanda and Thomas Stansel Welcome Their Sextuplets

This morning at 7:30am Texas couple, Amanda and Thomas Stansel welcomed their sextuplets.

Very few details are available about the babies right now. The couple posted this statement on their website:

The babies made their unexpected arrival last night around 7:30. Although the babies came much earlier than hoped they are all doing remarkably well for their size. We continue to be amazed by their fighting spirits. We will update as things calm down a bit. Amanda was running a temperature and had an elevated white blood count. She is a trooper we are all impressed by her stamina and strength. We appreciate your prayers in our behalf. We feel them and are blessed to know all of these matters are in God’s hands.

From the timeline the couple was providing on their website, the babies are 23 weeks gestation today.

Amanda was hospitalized at around 18 weeks for closer monitoring because that was when she had previously lost her twins.

Our thoughts and Prayers are with The Stansels.
