The past 11 years have been a relentless and agonizing journey as they traversed from one hospital to another in search of the elusive joy of parenthood, all in vain for the Emurua Dikir couple
Kiplagat and Jane embarked on their quest for a child with unwavering determination, leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit. They sought assistance from prominent medical institutions, with their last attempt taking them to Tenwek Hospital in Bomet County.
Unfortunately, their hopes were dashed, and they returned home disheartened. Determined to find a solution, they turned to traditional treatments, seeking solace in age-old remedies. Their resilience was unwavering.
It was during this challenging period that they crossed paths with a new doctor in their area. Kiplagat suggested a visit to this doctor, but Jane remained skeptical, the weight of past disappointments looming large.
Eventually, they mustered the courage to visit the doctor’s humble clinic, armed with the records of their previous consultations with various physicians. This visit marked a turning point in their arduous journey.
Today, Kiplagat stands as a proud father of two. In June 2023, the couple welcomed a baby boy into their lives, dispelling years of despair. Jane, in her selflessness and longing for a child, had encouraged her husband to consider marrying another wife, but destiny had a different plan.
In a heartwarming twist, a family that had waited for the blessing of children for 14 long years finally celebrated the arrival of twins into their home. The news spread like wildfire, and jubilant market women rejoiced upon seeing the new father, showering him with white powder in a joyous celebration of the long-awaited moment.
The Emurua Dikir couple’s story is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, the power of hope, and the triumph of perseverance in the face of adversity. Their journey reminds us that, even in the darkest of times, the light of joy can eventually shine through.
