Imagine that you were attached to a person for 13 months of your life, and all this time you were not able to see him. Now imagine how you feel when you look at this person for the first time.
As long as you imagine, the two Siamese twins, Jadon and Anias McDonald, this is a true story. The head-fused twins were born in Chicago, USA, where they were nicknamed “one in a million”.
The twins were recently separated and were able to see each other for the first time in their lives. You can take a look at this touching moment below.

The babies are currently recovering at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx, New York. It is assumed that they will soon be transferred to a rehabilitation center, because their recovery is not too easy.

In her Facebook post, Nicole wrote, “Only now I began to understand that I always saw you separately from each other, because now looking at you I do not see any difference.”
“When I stand at Jadon’s bed, it seems to me that Anias is still there. When I leaned over Anias, he began to protect my hair from Jadon. But still I look at them the same way.”
“It’s because I’ve always seen you like this. I love you very much. It’s time to step forward into a new chapter in our lives.”
“I’m ready to fight, I know you are too.”
Jadon recovers noticeably faster than Anias, who is having a difficult time, but the doctors are confident that he will be fully recovered in the near future.
