Mom Gives Birth To Conjoined Twins. Now, They Look So Different Separated
A couple is praising strangers around the world for making their dream come true. Yu Dang and Zhou Li were able to pay for their conjoined twins’ $60,000 separation thanks to the donations of kind strangers.
Yu Ce Yuan and Yu Ce Xiang, nicknamed James and Harley, were born joined at the abdomen. The twins shared a liver, pelvic bone, and intestines. Usingnew 3D-printing technology, doctors were able to carefully reconstruct their pelvic cavities.
Yu and Zhou come from one of the poorest areas in China, where it is common to abandon children born with defects or disabilities. However, these parents simply refused to give up on their children.
I gave birth to these children. Theyre my flesh, and I wouldnt give them to anyone else,” Zhousaid.
Their worst fear was that the surgery would fail and they would return home with only one child.
At the beginning we thought the surgical fee was too expensive; then we were scared wed have to choose between one and the other,” Yu said. “Our hopes are that after the successful surgery their living conditions will be improved.”
Yu had no idea she was pregnant with conjoined twins until she gave birth. The couple has so much gratitude for the doctors who saved their children, they hope that James and Harley will become doctors some day too.
In the future I hope they can be doctors, because if there hadnt been doctors, they wouldnt have the life they have now,” Yusaid.
