Woman Who Had 19 Miscarriages Gives Birth To 14-lb. Baby

Good things come in small packages. This saying is not true for this mom who gave birth to a 14 lb. baby boy via C-section. Baby Finnley was indeed a great gift after his mom suffered from a couple of miscarriages before his birth.


It came as a surprise for the parents, Cary and Tim Patonai, and the entire medical team who assisted Cary when she gave birth. Finnley greeted the world with a bang when he came out weighing 14.1 lbs.

This adorable baby became an instant celebrity, especially when the nurses had their selfies with this amazing boy. Everyone might think that everything’s going well for this family now that they have their youngest boy. But, they’ve been through a lot to get where they are now.

Cary had 19 miscarriages in total. She had 17 miscarriages before their second son, Everett, was born and another two before baby Finnley came out. “Two of the miscarriages were sets of twins. It was traumatic for the whole family, especially our oldest child (Devlen). Each loss would break his little heart,” this mom said. Imagine the pain this family faced before their newest bundle of joy was given to them.

But God had other plans. It’s now time to turn their mourning into dancing! He is genuinely the rewarder as He blessed this couple with their third son. Pregnancy was not an easy journey for this brave mom. Finnley already weighed 9 lbs. when Cary was just on her 34th week of pregnancy. This baby gained 5 lbs. after that.

He definitely, broke records. This baby was the biggest one Cary’s doctor delivered. In his 27-year medical practice, Finnley was the only 14 lb. baby he had delivered. His other brothers were born equally huge. The eldest was born at 8.2 lbs., and the second one was 11.11 lbs. The Patonai family is used to having big babies! They cannot contain the joy this miracle baby is giving them.

God is indeed the rewarder of children. After a lot of heartbreaks and tears, He had given them “an excellent thing which came in a big package.” Baby Finnley is the reward they have long been waiting for. God is faithful and true to His promises!

“God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” Numbers 23:19
