Sometimes, a picture speaks a thousand words.
And if that’s the case, we reckon this one right here speaks a million.
The powerful image, above, shows 14-month-old twins Jadon and Anias McDonald – who were born conjoined but were separated during a reported 27-hour surgery last month – seeing each other for the first time.
The tots are both displaying a look that, to us, simple says: Whaaaaaat???!
What an utterly magical moment to catch on camera ?
Here they were pre-op:
And when the twins were reunited after their successful op, Nicole posted this tearjerker of a status:
“Finally reunited. How surreal. I now realise that I always saw you as separate because seeing you like this is really nothing different to me.
“When I stand at your bedside, Jadon, it’s almost as if Anias is still there.
“Anias, when I leaned over you I protected my hair from Jadon. But the view is still the same. This is how I always saw you.
“I love you so much. Now it’s time to step forward into the new chapter of our life. I’m ready to fight and I know you are too.
“Thank you, Dr Goodrich, Dr Tepper, Kamilah, Martine, Dr Kahana, Dr Mann and everyone else at Montefiore. Your hands performed a miracle today. We love you.”
A truly amazing story – and we’re wishing the family all the very best!
