God Has Blessed Them With These 2 Little Miracles!
Shellie and Greg Tucker were thrilled to have been informed that they were to be expecting a baby. However, 20 weeks into their pregnancy, they were given some puzzling news about their baby. The doctor informed them that they were to be having twins, but he immediately recommended an abortion, and the reason will shock you to the very core.
Twins Allison and Amelia Tucker were conjoined at the chest and abdomen.
“The doctor said, ‘You’re having twins,’ and my heart dropped. And then she said, ‘I think they’re connected,’ and my heart dropped again. The doctor’s recommendation was to terminate.”
When they were recommended to terminate the pregnancy, the doctors didn’t know whether or not the twins were sharing one heart and one liver. Twins that do share a vital organ have a 25% chance of survival. However, later on it was revealed that each of the girls had their own major organs, and that left Shellie and Greg with somewhat of a relief.
The twin’s survival at birth was not the end of the situation. They still had to go through separation surgery.
It was not until they were 9 months of age that doctors decided to move on with the surgery.
It must have been the couple’s most unnerving moments of their life. But when the surgery was complete, the doctors announced that it had been a complete success.
“Both Allison and Amelia are doing well, and we expect them both to enjoy full, healthy and independent lives.”
What an inspiring story! Surely God has a special plan for these little miracles!
