They Were Next Expected To Make It This Far In Life
These conjoined twins were once expected to not survive their births. Now, they are preparing for their first week at school.
Rosie and Ruby Formosa, now four, were once joined at the abdomen and shared one intestine. They needed an emergency operation to separate them, in order to survive.
Their parents, Angela and Daniel Formosa were told their daughters had a slim chance of survival because of their condition.
The Formosa’s prayers were answered after a successful operation at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital (Gosh). The twins were given the chance to grow up healthy!
“Four years ago it wasn’t in my mind that this would ever happen,” she told the Press Association.
“When I was pregnant I didn’t think I’d ever see their first day at school so it is really amazing and all thanks to Gosh really.”
