At some point, it would have seemed likely that Maria Pridmore just couldn't take the heartache anymore. After 14 miscarriages, a stillborn baby, and the heartbreaking death of her 2-week-old son, many would have abandoned their dreams of motherhood in despair. Not Pridmore.
Instead the cancer nurse and her partner, John Forn, never gave up hope, and through all of the pain and heartache, they persevered for 13 long and grueling years. According to The Sun, she had her first miscarriage at age 19; 13 more followed. In 2003 when her dreams were finally realized, they were suddenly dashed when their daughter, who they named Shannon, was stillborn. Three years later their son Kai was born prematurely and died two weeks later.
How they could go on after all of that is simply amazing.
