Love comes in every shape and form around us. A few days ago, we covered a story about a woman who didn’t want to have kids; this one will be on the other end of that spectrum. Today’s story is about Kristina Ozturk, a woman who’s always dreamt of having a big, happy family – now has 22 children of her own!
Kristina Ozturk, originally from Russia, loves babies. She fantasized about having a family of her own, a big family sharing happy memories. Some dreams to come true! Kristina crossed paths with someone who wanted the same thing in his life. A 57-year-old businessman named Galip. They met at Batumi, Georgia, during a vacation and instantly hit it off after discovering their shared dream.
Dreams Come True
“So after we met, we started to put our dream into action. Our romantic relationship has changed, but then our whole lives have changed, not just the romantic part.”
Kristina gave birth to her first child at the age of 17. And that was just the beginning! She and her husband decided to grow their family through surrogacy further. When two people have the same goal, nothing comes their way; and this couple proved it.
“Our surrogacy clinic is amazed but happy to help us with our dream of a big family.”
Here at Relationship Rules, we believe in love. And birth is the most natural forms of love. It is a beautiful process and should be celebrated. Kristina and her husband invested upwards of £138,000 in their endeavor for a big family – welcoming their first surrogate baby last year!
“Each day is different, from planning staff schedules to shopping for my family. I can tell you one thing – my days are never boring.”
The Nannies are Happy, Too!
“It costs about £3,500 to £4,200 per week for essentials for all the kids. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a bit less.”
Of course, manage such a big family takes time, effort, and money. Raising one child can become difficult for most new parents; we get tons of messages from new parents explaining the mental and physical toll on them – and it’s perfectly natural.
Kristina spends all her time with her family; she has over 16 nannies who help her around the surrogate clinic. And they’re all part of the family, which makes this story even more beautiful.
Looking Ahead, She Wants to Have More Babies
Kristina wants to spend time with her babies right now, but she plans on having another natural birth in the future. We wish her nothing but the best in her journey; more power to you, Kristina!
