Things took a turn for good 16 years later when Mrs Egenti took in and welcomed her babies at the National Hospital Abuja.
Speaking from her hospital bed, 44-year-old Mrs Susan Egenti, a trader in Abuja, said:
“I have been married since 2003 with no children, not even to get pregnant and have a miscarriage. Every time we attend a child dedication either in our church or elsewhere, I always come home crying, praying for the day God will have mercy on me and grant me the fruit of the womb”.
