A select few mothers who choose to have a second child have surprised their family in more ways than one. They have been together for nine years and live in Odessa, Texas, in the United States. Heather Langley is 39 and Priscilla Rodriguez is 35. The two are already mothers to Sawyer, who is three years old, but they want to expand their family by having a second child.

The couple’s eldest child, Sawyer, who loved her five younger sisters with a lot of love, was with Heather and Priscilla. We wouldn’t trade the wild, stressful, and exhausting experience for anything. For her elder sisters, our eldest daughter is nothing short of incredible, and she even views them as her own.
