Lisa and Darren Hansen were a newlywed couple who wanted to start their family as soon as they could. It took a lot of work and more time than they thought it would but the Hansen couple not only conceived but they were pregnant with twins! The thrilled parents-to-be were incredibly excited to grow their family by two but before they could jump for joy, the doctor gave them some very unsettling news.
The Hansen couple had to learn to deal with some very unlikely odds that were stacked against them and work on their positive thinking. They did everything they could to make sure that their babies came to term and were as healthy as can be. Throughout her ordeal, Lisa Hansen wrote a blog and posted videos that went viral with their viewer count. There were people who followed Lisa throughout her entire pregnancy and felt as connected to her as if they knew her. Darren was away at work many months of the pregnancy as he took a job before they knew they were pregnant. It was up to Lisa to remain positive, busy and productive over the months in the hospital.
Darren and Lisa are a story of perseverance and how just being positive can make a difference in our perspective and life. Lisa wrote, “We are told we need to see a specialist and she tells us she has never in her whole career seen our kind of twin, it’s that rare,” she said. “She tells us she is concerned and explains why. It’s hard not to be scared. All we can do is start to make a plan to give our kids the best chance possible.” This is exactly what Darren and Lisa did for their twins, planned and kept their heads up.

The beautiful couple that is Lisa and Darren, married in March of 2010. The successful, good-looking couple looked like they had a love at first sight kind of connection, but in fact, Lisa said, “I told [him he wasn’t] my type shortly after we met,” she continued, “But I was like a little bug attracted to a bright light.” We know the feeling, Lisa, we know the feeling.
