Overview

Eight children in three years? Impossible!

Kate and Jon Gosselin have learned that, through God, all things are possible—though sometimes slightly improbable.

Just three years after giving birth to twin daughters, Kate and Jon learned they were pregnant again—with sextuplets. In Multiple Blessings, Kate candidly chronicles the emotional and exhausting challenges she and Jon faced from the time the babies were conceived through the first two years of their lives.

This amazing story of faith provides a heartening lesson in what it means to trust the faithful hand of God to provide the strength and courage to make it through life’s seemingly impossible situations.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Infertility treatments, twins, more infertility treatments, followed by six beating hearts on an ultrasound screen. That sets up the Gosselins' memoir of the exhausting and joyous events surrounding the births of their now famous sextuplets. Those familiar with the TLC program Jon & Kate Plus 8 know how their household runs; now their story comes alive for readers as well. Kate admits, "I was a bit of a control freak," yet also quickly draws on and receives the "peace of God... like a security blanket" through her months in the hospital, Jon's job loss and the impending arrivals. Details such as how they chose names; the sextuplets' birth day of May 10, 2004; and the babies' weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit are fascinating, as are stories of running a household that was perpetually full of volunteers, looked like "baby base camp" and required carefully sequenced nightly bath time. The Gosselins' life is a whirlwind, with their book reflecting the fast-paced, faith-filled approach they take to raising their twins and their miracle sextuplets. (Nov.)

Library Journal

Fans of TLC will recognize this family from the television show Jon & Kate Plus Eight, featuring the Gosselin parents, their set of twins, and their younger sextuplets. Here, Kate Gosselin, with the help of her husband, Jon Gosselin, and family friend Beth Carson, shares her perspective on the pregnancies, births, and early months with eight children, infusing her memoir with her faith in God. She relates the family's story from their marriage and infertility to the arrival of their twin girls and, less than four years later, their sextuplet pregnancy. The Gosselins decide against selective reduction, manage a high-risk pregnancy, and produce six miraculously healthy babies. Kate shares the chaos and stress of caring for eight children, focusing on her conflicting emotions, her reliance on God, and the help of family, friends, and volunteers. The book concludes with six lessons Kate learned in the first year about trusting God and receiving his blessings. The Gosselins have shared their story with openness and honesty, and they will engage many readers, especially Christians and fans of their show. Recommended where there is demand.

    Endearing & Easy Read

    A breeze to read and well worth it. Kate invites us into her world before the cameras ever began rolling. She shares with us her family's trials and triumphs throughout her unique journey of twins, high-risk pregnancy, and sixtuplets, along with the many other obstacles and blessings her and her family endured. Will certainly be reading this again in the future to remind myself of the faith in God and the strength of family.
