SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Jodi and Ethan Metzger had known they were having triplets since their eighth week of pregnancy, but what they did not know was that on Valentineâ€™s Day they would receive three beautiful gifts from Heaven.
The Metzger triplets were not expected to be born Feb. 14, but Jodi drove herself to her doctorâ€™s appointment earlier in the day, and within the hour, she was scheduled for a cesarean section to deliver.
â€śThe doctor got things in motion, and he told me to call the babiesâ€™ daddy right away,â€ť said Jodi.
Jodi called Ethan, and he quickly drove to Lutheran Hospital. Ethan was right by her side when the triplets arrived.
â€śUsually multiple births are scheduled,â€ť said Jodi. â€śThat day it looked like calm chaos. The babies were going to born in one hour. My body had given up and the babies had to be delivered.â€ť
On Valentineâ€™s Day the Metzgerâ€™s received the greatest Valentine gift of all.
