Welcoming babies into this world can be the most magical experience we as humans can share with one another. Babies have this way of turning even the smallest moments into those of magic and joy.
When we hold a baby we can feel unconditional love and the endless possibilities that are ahead of them. However, as magical as having a child is it is not easy.
For one couple in India, they had struggled for years to have a child so she and her husband decided to look into getting IVF treatments with hopes of finally conceiving a child. No matter what the cost. That woman’s name is Daljinder and she is seventy-two years old.
Daljinder and her husband have been married for over fifty years and after trying time and time again they just couldn’t get passed the piece the was missing. So they started to look into IVF treatments at the National Fertility and Test Tube Baby Centre in Hisar.
At first, the clinic was skeptical but Daljinder was persistent. In order to qualify she had to go through extensive examinations, tests, multiple doctors once ruled healthy enough she was able to receive the rounds of IVF.
The cost of Daljinder’s persistence cost the couple 1 million rupees which is equivalent to about $12,000 US dollars. Daljinder states in the video her thinking behind her decision,
“Money does not matter to me. I wanted my own child at any cost and today I am a mother.”
But her persistence and the cost was all worth the wait when the couple welcomed theirs on Arman.
“We cannot thank God and our doctor enough for blessing us with a baby boy.”
Daljinder who delivered Arman at the age of 72 years old was one of the oldest first-time mothers in the world!
Daljinder delivered her baby boy naturally and even breastfeeds her son. Although Daljinder has admitted welcoming this little boy has been more challenging than she expected the parents have no regrets. Although magical it can be overwhelming to welcome a new baby into the world but for this couple, they also welcomed in a ton of media to come to congratulate the new parents. She states,
“Arman is like a celebrity. He has called all media to our house like that political party in Delhi.”
Babies have this special way of reminding us of the magic that lives and breathes allaround especially when they are miracles like little Arman. We wish the best for Armanand his loving parents.
