Having a kid is a precious blessing. It’s not unsual that every parent wants their children to arrive happy and healthy. However, prior to learning of their baby’s sex, parents likely secretly wish for a boy over a girl or vice versa.
One woman in Michigan desperately wanted a little baby girl, but iven the history of her husband’s family, the odds were not in her favor. According to People, not since 1885 had a girl been born in Andrew Clark’s family.
When Andrew told his wife, Carolyn the news about his family’s history, she thought it was a joke at first.
“He was like, ‘Oh, we don’t, we don’t have girls,'” she said. “And I’m like, ‘Ok.’ Like, I thought he was just messing with me.”
While the odds are heavily against her, Carolyn said she was going to be the one to break the baby girl drought in Andrew’s family. They began trying and ended up pregnant. Carolyn and Andrew became the happy parents of a beautiful baby boy, Cameron, as per News Center Maine.
Andrew and Carolyn began trying again, but sadly this time the pregnancy ended in a misc@rriage in January 2021, which Carolyn mentioned was their second.
