50 Year Old Woman Gives Birth To Twins After 14 Years

Roseline Akinsola, 50, on Monday delivered a set of twins after 14 years of childlessness. The two girls, weighed 4.2kg and 2.3kg respectively.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Akinsola, who works at the Ekiti State Christian Pilgrims Board, was full of praises to God for answering her prayers. Akinsola advised other couples in need of  children not to lose  hope.

In an interview with NAN,  she expressed gratitude to God for giving  her the children after several years.
“I thank God for the new name he has given to me;  before, I was being called  ‘Iya Iyanu’ without a child, but today, my name has changed  to ‘Mummy Twins,’” she said.

“Many of my colleagues, friends and neighbours mocked and sidelined me, but because I stood  firm on  the words of God, He answered my prayers. I thank my husband, who inspite of the troubles and problems from family members, friends, colleagues and neighbours still believe in me and God. He stood by me like a father in all ways and also believed  in God all through the crisis. I  also thank  my siblings who stood by me in prayers for years.

Let me thank God for all those who stood by me in prayers and encouraged me not to desist from serving God. These children are indeed signs that God never forgets  his own people who diligently seek him and believe in his words,” she said.
The father of the twins, Babatunde, 49, also expressed gratitude to God for the children.
“We fast, pray and cry unto God for the fruits of the womb for years, but I  am happy that today, God has finally fulfilled  his promise to my family. I thank members of our church under the callings of  Pastor and Mrs  David Ajileye for their prayers and care for my family,’’ the happy father, who is also a civil servant, said.
Ajileye, who is the General Overseer of the Way of Life Bible Church, Ado-Ekiti, thanked God for his  blessings in the lives of the couple.
“We have known the couple for over 15 years and they have been steadfast and faithful in serving God inspite of  the challenges they were facing. For years, I and my wife have been  praying to God to give the couple the fruit of the womb; I am so happy that the lord has answered  their prayers. The church witnessed a similar miracle in 2013 when a couple, members of our church delivered a set of twins, a boy and a girl after 31 years of childlessness,’’ he said.

He advised the couple to teach and train the children in the ways of the lord.
NAN reports that the mother and the twins were in good health as at press time.
