Ryan Ries is a professional skateboard team manager who used to be the opposite of a family man. Heroin, cocaine, and ecstasy were all as essential as oxygen to him. That is until he found faith. His life changed dramatically, and he soon found himself married and trying to have kids.
But as with so many couples, Ries and his wife Crystal were unsuccessful. Like his life, that soon changed drastically, and the story's conclusion is just awesome.
During Ries' wild days, his girlfriend got pregnant. As he says in an I Am Second video, that woman then had an abortion. But in a new video he explains how that same woman actually got pregnant again, only to have yet another abortion. And those abortions combined resulted in the death of not two, but three babies. That's because the second one involved twins.
Fast forward to today. After resigning themselves to the idea that they would not be able to have kids of their own, Ryan and Crystal found out they had gotten pregnant on the last try. But they weren't just pregnant with one child, they were pregnant with three. And not just three, but the second two were twins.
Coincidence? Well, that's not how Ryan describes it.
"You may think this is coincidence, but I see it as 100 percent God doing God business," Ryan told I Am Second after a long night with the triplets. "This is the creator of the universe doing what he does. He makes the impossible possible."
"God gave me the identical twins and the fraternal [child] all in one," Ries says in the new video. "Which is insane!"
