“God knew what he was doing by giving these babies to the right parents, who would love them anyway,” the mother explained.
When Savannah Combs became pregnant with identical twins, she had no idea they would be born with Dᴏᴡɴ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ. Even though she had ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ work done, the tests did not reveal the sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ, likely due to the fact that they are mono-di twins – babies who have their own ᴘᴏᴜᴄʜ but share the same ᴘʟᴀᴄᴇɴᴛᴀ.
According to the website Live Action, she refused invasive tests to find out if the babies had any underlying health problems, as “the only way to find out would be by ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴄᴇɴᴛᴇsɪs, so I chose not to do it, because it could cause a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ, and I didn’t want to ʟᴏsᴇ any of my babies.”
This mom, who lives in Jacksonville, Florida, welcomed her “precious jewels” into the world six weeks early. Girls Kennadi Rue and Mckenli Ackerman were in intensive care for four weeks.
The babies progressed well, and the family was eager to share the great gift God had sent them.
“They have feelings. They have a beating heart. They understand. They know how to do things the way others do them. They will get there! I learned that these kids are happy little beings,” she said in an interview with News4Jax.
The loving mother says the chance of having identical twins with Dᴏᴡɴ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ is one in two million. And while these miracle twins are a true blessing to their family, other people don’t always see it that way.
In a post by Savannah on Facebook, one person commented: “I wouldn’t like these babies; if mine turned out like that, they would go straight to adoption.”
The mother gave the perfect answer: “I’m glad they weren’t born for you, but they were born for me. God knew what he was doing by giving these babies to the right parents who would love them anyway.”
Looking at the love that surrounds these little girls, you can see that God certainly knew what He was doing.
