Joy and her husband Norman were married in 2008 and had been trying for a long time to have a baby. Doctors diagnosed the woman with polycystic ovarian syndrome. She was told there was a 15 percent chance she could conceive naturally. Joy's medical condition was complicated by diabetes.

The couple adopted a newborn baby girl named Haven, and in 2016, Joy felt unwell and decided to take a pregnancy test. It turned out to be positive. The couple unexpectedly had a son named Chase, who weighed about five pounds.

Soon it turned out that Joy was expecting another baby. In the last weeks of her pregnancy, she was breathing with difficulty; the fetus was pressing heavily on her bladder.

The woman could not climb the stairs on the second floor to her bedroom, so she slept on the couch on the first floor. She had to eat eight small meals a day because one regular meal would not fit in her stomach.

Doctors decided that a c-section should take place at 38 weeks of pregnancy. In March 2019, Joy became the mother of a baby girl named Harper. One doctor had to push the woman in labor and the other had to pull the baby out. The sight was terrifying. According to Buckley, it felt like she had been beaten. The newborn had bruises all over her body - she had to be dragged so hard. Norman nearly fainted as he watched his wife suffer.

The morning after the birth, Joy didn't feel well: "I felt as if I'd been run over by two trucks at the same time.

Obstetrician-gynecologist Regan Tayler said a large fetus is common in women with diabetes. High levels of insulin in the mother's blood can affect the baby's rapid growth.

In 2020, Joy gave birth again in spite of all the difficulties. Now there are four children in the family.
