A Mansion Is On The Market For $10, And No One Wants To Buy It: The Future Owner Must Relocate The House
Pregnancy, in of itself, is a precious, if not strenuous, process that is taxing on a mother-to-be's body. And whenever a woman feels ready to take on that phase of her life, it's full of shocks, strains, and surprises. However, for a couple that was expecting, they were met with a surprise of a lifetime soon after giving birth to their newborn.
Eliza Curby had been with Ben for a considerably short amount of time. Three months into their nascent relationship, they discovered that they would soon become proud parents. Following an incredibly successful pregnancy, their new baby girl came into the world. But, there was a shock on the horizon that would arrive just six weeks after bringing their newborn home. This came after a strange feeling in Eliza's body that she had to see a doctor about.
Before all this, Eliza was a full-time Australian manager in an espresso bar, and one day, a young man by the name of Ben walked in as a customer but would soon become so much more than that to Eliza. He essentially became a regular as they built a casual rapport with each other. Eliza was almost instantly sold, but it did take some time before they made anything official or even intentional, for that matter.
After some exchanges between each other, Ben asked her if she wouldn't mind looking after his house while he set out on a business trip. Eliza wasn't entirely sure what to do with the request and needed to be encouraged by one of her colleagues to agree to do it, so she did. Eliza house-sat for two weeks, and as a thank you, Ben gave her an incredible gift that left her speechless.
It was a beautiful ring in hand when he returned to her, which wasn't one of engagement, but more of a thank you. Ben, ever the casanova, then asked if she would stay and have dinner with him, and this kicked off the couple's romance that would lead to even more surprises down the line. As within three months time, they'd have a third party in the mix.
Within three months of their young romance, the 27-year-old Eliza was expecting. This, for all intents and purposes, wasn't a spanner in the wheel. They were both over the moon about it, despite being together for a short time. Nine months later, a year after they had first kicked off their romance, their little baby girl, Charlie, came into the world. And after returning her home and starting their parenting journey, Eliza could feel a disturbance in her stomach.
Following a near-perfect pregnancy, Eliza was devoted to being a full-time mother as she adjusted to life with a newborn. She loved her first child, Charlie, but she couldn't deny how demanding raising a baby was. She was often exhausted; she was suffering from headaches and was constantly drowsy. She initially chalked it up to the strain of raising a baby, but, as these aches and pains continued, they went to go see a doctor about it. This revealed a shocking situation they were never prepared for.
Many of her friends close to her also chalked about the new mother's fatigue on the exhaustion of raising a newborn and undeniably beautiful baby. She suddenly had to take on so many physical, mental, and emotional changes that were all a shock to her system. But, Eliza had just felt her body go through so many hardships, she was sure that what she was feeling was somehow different, but somehow familiar too.
Eliza knew this feeling somehow, which is why she needed to head to the doctor the moment she had an idea regarding what was happening with her. She didn't think it was possible, but following a pregnancy test with a doctor, her suspicions were correct, Eliza, six weeks after giving birth, was pregnant again!
Eliza's doctor announced her pregnancy to her and Ben, which was news much to their understandable shock. But, that alone wasn't the only astounding fact surrounding this particular pregnancy. While Eliza and Ben were anticipating one more member to come into their family, a sonogram revealed that their maths was slightly off.
Eliza had just recovered from the birth of Charlie, who was born via C-section. Although, she was now not expecting one newborn, but she and Ben were told they would now be parents to twins! This led to a far more strenuous pregnancy, which resulted in a far larger pregnancy belly than she was 'used to' while carrying Charlie. She had grown so much that she needed more hands-on-deck to help her through a challenging 9-month period.
Charlie was still an infant during the pregnancy, and therefore, she wasn't able to capably and fully care for her daughter the way she had intended when she took on the role as a full-time mother instead of a manager. Ben needed more paternity leave from his full-time job in order to care for Charlie while the twins were on their merry way. But, the pregnancy came with some other complications.
Being a stunning surprise seemed to have been embedded in the DNA of the twins in more ways than one. The twins arrived prematurely and were subsequently forced to remain longer in the hospital than Charlie due to their early arrival. After a week of coming into the world, the boys, Jack and Wolfe, were welcomed home to a life like no other.
Charlie, Jack, and Wolfe have since grown up in a loving and happy home, thanks to their loving parents. With three children under their roof in a matter of two years from their initial meeting, Ben and Eliza had done everything except one thing in order to complete their family portrait.
Eliza always had her eyes on marriage long before she came across Ben. So, after the blessings of a beautiful family that delayed those talks, it was just about time that the parents of three were destined to tie the inevitable knot.
Not naturally a couple that does anything without shock and awe, their inevitable ceremony was met with rain that resulted in them having a wedding wrapped up in a reception. Despite the setback, it was a beautiful and long-overdue ceremony that had friends, family, and the kids in attendance, who watched their family come together before their beautiful eyes.
A rocky and raucous family story that had all the shocks and surprises of a rollercoaster ended in a beautiful family moment that no one will ever forget. What do you think of the events that Eliza and Ben had to experience? And do you think it's sweet or scary?
