Default I won the Lottery

Baby lottery that is! My wife and I are pregnant with identical triplets boys. The doctors tell us itís about a 1 in 200 million chance to conceive identical triplets naturally. We are very excited and nervous, big life changes coming for this Bowhunter. Please keep us in your prayers!

Congrats and lots of prayers.

Congrats. Next have triple girls and you can be finished!


Maybe a small million dollar lotto but not the power ball. So don't quit your day job just yet!

"Identical siblings are much more rare: Only about one in 250 births is identical twins, according to a 2003 study in the Journal of Biosocial Science. Identical triplets are even less common, occurring about 20 to 30 times per 1 million births, the study found.Oct 28, 2015"

Oh WOW!!! Obviously congratulations sir, but man!!! I've always said that the greatest gift God can give a man is a son, but 3??? and all at once!! Gonna be tight for a while, but the rewards will FAR outweigh the early chaos!!



You better stick close to momma!! She gon' swell up here pretty quick!! You just keep tellin' her how beautiful she is!!



Congratulations to you and her both again. It's gonna be fun watching them grow up here on the Green Screen!!


Lord, we thank You for this miracle of three babies for James and his wife! We ask You to give mom a peaceful pregnancy with no issues. Allow her to deliver three healthy baby boys as a testimony of Your Love for them. Strengthen James and his bride for the journey they have begun and prepare the way for them. Put people in their lives to help them along their journey and give them comfort. We ask these things in the powerful name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.


Keep us posted James!!
