Houston Couple Swims Through Harvey Floods for Houston IVF Treatment
June 26, 2018
(KHOU 11 NEWS) – Houston couple defied a monster storm for the chance to have a family. Their story begins during the height of Hurricane Harvey when the Zunigas refused to let flood water keep them from their IVF treatments.
Twins, Abigail and Elijah Zuniga are too young to know this now but long before they were born, they were already considered miracles. Two days after Hurricane Harvey hit, Rocio was scheduled for her egg retrieval at Houston IVF; however, the Zunigas found themselves stuck by Harvey floods.
“By the time we hit Briar Forest, there was no way to get on the beltway…so we basically parked the car and we swam,” said Zuniga.
