#3 Conjoined Twins
No matter how strong a person you are, there are times in your life when you come across a few things that’ll just involuntarily wet your eyes. This incident is one such event.
Christian and Nicole McDonald knew they were going to have conjoined twins while Nicole was still pregnant. People suggested them to abort the kids but that was never an option for them.
#2 The Sacrifices
They decided to bring their kids in this world and then take care of them in every way possible. They always knew that sacrifices will have to be a regular part of their life.
Both of them gave up their jobs and shifted their base from Illinois to New York City to be closer to the Children’s Hospital. Their 13-month-old boys, Jadon and Anias, are conjoined at the skull. Separating them is a huge risk; the surgery could kill one or both of them, or cause long-term damage or disabilities in one or both babies.

#1 The Video
Both the parents knew that during this surgery, any outcome is possible. One of their kids might survive or both might not or maybe both will end up surviving.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta followed the parents during the agonizing day before the rare and risky procedure. The question loomed over Nicole and Christian’s head: would both their babies survive?
After a 17 hour long surgery, on October 14, 2016, Nicole excitedly declared her two precious babies were successfully separated.
