Chloe Dunstan and her husband, Rohan, already gave birth to three wonderful boys, but they also wanted a daughter.

They decided to try to have another child, and very soon Chloe became pregnant.

A few weeks later, Chloe went for a routine check to make sure the pregnancy was progressing well.

And that was when she got the news that shocked her. She wasn't going to have her fourth child - she was going to have her fifth and sixth child as well!

Chloe was pregnant with a triplet!

Chloe was pregnant with two boys and a daughter, and everything went according to plan.

But then the doctors forced Chloe to make a decision that no mother was supposed to make.

It turned out that while the two boys were developing well, the daughter was underdeveloped - and things got worse with each passing day.

The doctors explained to Chloe that the daughter would probably die unless she underwent surgery.

But the surgery would endanger the lives of the boys as well.

Chloe had to decide if she wanted to have the surgery and risk all three babies, or probably sacrifice her daughter's life to ensure that the boys were born healthy.

Chloe knew she was facing the toughest decision of her life.

"I couldn't hear it.. my head was thinking about one thing only 'I want all my babies', I thought a little about the alternative, did a lot of research and tried to imagine what I was going through. I knew it would be hard, but I couldn't give up, I know she is strong because she came all the way up to week 28, while she barely absorbed nutrients in the womb", Chloe wrote on Facebook.
