Title: California couple welcome home 'healthiest set of quintuplets ever born' after doctors advised them to abort some of them

A California couple have welcomed home the healthiest set of quintuplets ever born according to doctors, in addition to their big sister Gianna.

Returning to their Fullerton home on Wednesday Meryl and John Ferraro were greeted by a banner reading 'Welcome home GRACE + 1.'

With so many children, three girls and two boys in addition to their two-year-old big sister Gianna, the parents say it may be easier to refer to them all using a simple acronym for: Gabrielle, Riley, Addison, Cooper and Emerson.

'We figured we would eventually forget their names, so if we yell "GRACE" they'd all come running,' Mrs Ferraro playfully told CBS Los Angeles.

Today appearing in good spirits with the added assistance of community members donating time, money and household baby items, it was just one month ago she gave birth via C-section to the healthy brood at an Arizona hospital.

After several hours of labour, it took less than three minutes to deliver all five with '24 people or so in the Operating room, and another 40-50 people in the baby recovery room,' writes the proud father in their family blog.

But that can't hold a candle to the both physically and emotionally intense pregnancy the mother had to first fight through.

After several miscarriages and years trying to give birth, it was an infertility specialist in December of 2008 that brought them their oldest daughter, Gianna.

Trying again, it was earlier this year they found themselves successfully pregnant again.

Successful at least, until the first ultrasound found two sets of heartbeats that gradually escalated to five bringing a number shockingly unexpected by the couple - though joyfully welcome - even with their doctor's grim warning.

'He spent over an hour telling us all the statistics and dangers that faced our little ones; blindness, cerebral palsy, hearing loss, autism, mental retardation, even death.

'He said he supported us with whatever decision we made, but he clearly implied that fetal reduction as the best option for having healthy babies. Keeping all 5 was too risky and the statistics showed that at least 2-3 of our babies would have significant health issues,' Mr Ferraro wrote. With a doctor suggesting they, in Mr Ferraro's words, 'choose which of our babies would live and which ones would die,' after traumatic thought and consideration, they decided in the end: 'if God was giving us 5 babies, there was a reason.'

The couple's struggle didn't end there though.

In June, 18 weeks into their pregnancy, their doctor issued another warning to the couple after an ultrasound.

Mrs Ferraro's cervix was opening up, dilating to 4cm by the next day with her amniotic fluid or bag of water seen 'bulging out like a balloon,' according to the father.

Undergoing an emergency surgery to close the expanding gap that would otherwise cause her to go into premature labour, losing the babies, their doctor later said he didn't think the babies would last more than a week.

But they did. Temporarily relocating to Mesa, Arizona for their delivery, following their doctor's move, on September 26th, Mrs Ferraro gave birth to the quintuplets all weighing between four and five pounds.

Returning home this week, they also arrived 'a full 8 days gestational age prior to the previous record for a set of Quintuplets,' the overjoyed father wrote, making them ‘the healthiest set of Quintuplets ever born.’

'I don't use the term loosely but these five babies are truly miracles,' Dr John Elliot said at a press conference following.

'Just the fact that they made it this far and that they were all home within three weeks is just crazy. I mean it’s truly a miracle. They’re all healthy,' Mrs Ferraro told CBS.

‘Our first goal was to get them out healthy. ... Now, the fun begins, she told OC Register.

Apparently it was far too on topic. Romney has vowed to protect Roe v Wade, and is a dedicated baby killer.

What a pathetic hypocrite you are.

Virgil Goode is a decent man from what I have read.

He has some bad votes though.

It was off topic.

A Romney graphic that you post over and over isn't what this thread was about.

I disagree with you Hondo. But I do respect you and think you want what is right for our country. I just have a different view on how we get there. We have to get rid of Obama first. Romney has experience cutting spending. I think he will be a better President then Obama.

In fact he may be the best candidate on a major ticket since Ronald Reagan.

He is better then any democrat and better than the Bushes and Dole and McCain.

He isn't perfect but we will never have that my friend.
