When Diamond Harris couldn't get pregnant, she and Chris turned to a specialist for help. The couple was overjoyed, then, when they learned that Diamond was pregnant with multiples. At first the sonogram had shown that there were two babies; then a second ultrasound showed five. But the Harrises didn't learn until the day of delivery (at 26-1/2) weeks that there was yet another baby -- bringing the total to an astonishing six -- four boys and two girls. Today the Harris sextuplets, who are now two-and-a-half years old, are America's first-ever surviving set of African American sextuplets. When Diamond was pregnant, she was put on bed-rest and had to leave her nursing job. Chris' salary as a third-grade teacher wasn't sufficient enough to cover their expenses, and soon they found their home in foreclosure. Fortunately, their wonderful neighbors rallied around them and raised enough money to stop the bank proceedings. But the 2,000-sq. ft., three-bedroom house was in desperate need of repair, and matters were made worse when Hurricane Ivan sent a tree crashing through the living room, which had become the children's playroom.
