Family With 14 Boys Finally Welcomes A Baby Girl

Lex Gabrielle 12 Nov 2020

When having kids, some couples want to have a mix of both sons and daughters. Since there's almost no way to guarantee a baby's sex, it can take a couple of tries to have a daughter or a son. For some people, like the Schwandt family, it takes more than a couple of tries.

We've all heard stories of families who keep on trying.

Some families have five, six, or even seven kids before they finally get the son or daughter they had dreamed of. But, sometimes, families try even longer.
