Shidduch Crisis? Woman Gives Birth To First All-Girl Set Of Quintuplets in US


busby-babiesThe AP reports that a woman has delivered five girls in what are believed to be the first all-female quintuplets born in the U.S.

The Woman’s Hospital of Texas in Houston says that Danielle Busby had her babies by cesarean section April 8. Doctors say the children, born premature at 28 weeks, were doing well.

Busby, her husband Adam and her eldest daughter, Blayke, welcomed Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige. Their birth weights ranged from 2 pounds, to 2 pounds 6 ounces.

The family already had one daughter – so they now have six girls.

Shidduch crisis, anyone?

  1. Shidduch crisis indeed. There’s already an oversupply of girls and not enough boys for them to marry. Apparently they’ll soon need to reintroduce plural marriages.

  2. there is no shidduch crisis. we all need to have bitachon & emunah (faith & trust)in Hashem.

    for when one has faith in Hashem he lacks nothing (tehillim 34-11)

    Hashem is the real shadchan & we know that nothing is impossible for hashem. This shidduch crises is a test from hashem on the girls, boys & their parents to put their faith & trust in Hashem.

    we think there’s just no boy for my daughter right now, she’s not being red shidduchim right now. remove your physical minds from your system & start thinking spiritually (if a person opens up their eyes you can see the work & beauty of hashem in every tiny product in the world. look at the beautiful world Hashem gave us. first we had mail, then email, then fax machines where I can send a letter thousands of miles away in 30 seconds)

    Hatzlacha to everyone in their Shidduchim with faith in hashem & not in shadchanim or rich in-laws

  3. Your headline is misleading. As far as I know, the name Busby, is not Jewish. The so called “Shidduch crises” is only by Orthodox Jews.

  4. your title is NOT amusing or sensitive to those suffering.

    given that they are not jewish, they will not experience the tremendous suffering that our precious bnos yisroel are.

    it is cruel, insensitive humor like this that only promulgates the problem and perpetuates callous remarks that only hurt our dear sisters more.

  5. There are plenty of boys out there. Just not the type which fit the bill for which BY girls are told to look for. 90-10 rule. 90% of the girls are looking for 10% of the guys.

  6. to 3.
    You live in a bubble and are oblivious to the many single girls who for no fault of themselves are not red shiduchim

  7. the children in the article are not jewish and why should you judge girls based on a shidduch crises that is not funny.

    mazel tov to them. they have 6 daughters now including the older sister who is 4
