In 2007, an unexpected turn took place in the life of the Artamkin family.
Varvara and Dmitry had five children – five wonderful, beautiful daughters.
While still pregnant, Varvara went for an ultrasound procedure and it turned out that a woman carries as many as five embryos under her heart. The doctors were worried about this situation and suggested that the couple remove two of the embryos to avoid further risks. But the people of Artamkin are believers, they refused this and decided that as God wills, so be it.
Due to such a multiple pregnancy, Russian doctors refused to take on such responsibility, so the Artamkins left to give birth abroad.
At the 26th week of pregnancy, five beautiful girls were born, who were immediately transferred to the incubator for premature babies. The kids developed well, gained weight, eventually got stronger and went home to their native Moscow.
“I am glad that my daughters will be in the same class and will be able to support each other. How scary it must be for a child who goes to school alone for the first time, without the support of his brothers and sisters!” – mother says.
Now the girls are 12 years old, they are comprehensively developed, they have been attending church since childhood. By their example, the Artamkins showed that when there is a reliable shoulder of a loved one, nothing is impossible.
