On Wednesday, the doctors and family went over their experiences on this journey. “I want to thank Miracle and Testimony for choosing me as their mom, I’m so so grateful,” said Mary Ayeni. Emotions were present on Miracle and Testimony’s first birthday. The two little girls were born in Nigeria as conjoined twins. “When you see a baby, being joined in this situation, you will be so amazed. You will be so surprised at how could this be?” said the twin’s father, Sam Ayeni. And now that surprise has turned into what they call a blessing. The Linking Hands Foundation set the family up with Le Bonheur where they met with over a hundred faculty members including 20 doctors and surgeons. The twins have spent the last four months here at Le Bonheur undergoing preparations for the procedure with the actual surgery taking 18 hours.
