SOUTH WHITLEY — 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 Valentine’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 doctor’s appointment earlier in the day, and within the hour, she was scheduled for a cesarean section to deliver.
“The doctor got things in motion, and he told me to call the babies’ daddy right away,” said Jodi.
Jodi called Ethan, and he quickly drove to Lutheran Hospital. Ethan was right by her side when the triplets arrived.
“Usually multiple births are scheduled,” said Jodi. “That 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.”
On Valentine’s Day the Metzger’s received the greatest Valentine gift of all.
