Chioma Ajunwa recently spoke to Sunday Express about her triplets – Joshua, Caleb & Rose, who she recently had after waiting for years.
I was married for many years and when the child was not forthcoming, I was worried all the time, because I know that if you don’t have a child, your marriage will not be that strong. In Igboland there’s a saying that, ‘a woman that does not have a child, her seat is kept outside. That was bothering me, though as a believer I wasn’t that desperate over it. I wouldn’t have a devilish child. I strongly believed in God that at His appointed time, it will come because I know he never fails.
I did not ever entertain the thought that I could be barren. As a pastor, my husband was always consoling me, telling me to leave everything to God. In my mind I said ‘I hear. Tomorrow you will go and marry another person, thank you very much!’ When I was pregnant I asked God for so many things; the number one thing was that if this should become a reality, I promised God I will return the children to Him and I will give a giant offering. To God be the Glory, it came to pass. My babies are two boys and a girl; Joshua, Caleb and Rose.’
