Meet the Parents of the Abington 6

Emma, Samantha, Olivia, John, Patrick and Connor.

The names of the half dozen bundles of joy brought into the world last week at Abington Memorial Hospital.

The proud Bucks County parents of the three girls and three boys met the press Monday.

"We weren't expecting a family this big but we're happy now," mother Stacey Carey of Feasterville said.

Stacey and her husband Brendan, along with some of the doctors and medical staff who helped deliver the babies, stressed that the babies still have hurdles to clear. The babies weigh only between 1 pound, 1 ounce and 2 1/2 pounds.

"They are all responding to therapy but they remain in critical condition," said Neonatologist Dr. Gerald Cleary. "Well we are happy that they are responding to therapy they are in no way out of the woods."

The infants, who were born in their 27th week were not available for photos at the conference.

The Labor and Delivery team who cared for Stacey, which includes over 50 members, also attended the event.

The Careys also have a 15-month-old daughter.

The Careys aren’t the only Pa. parents of sextuplets. Kate Gosselin of Jon & Kate Plus 8 fame lives in eastern Pennsylvania with her sextuplets and twins.
