Although the odds of having twins increased by 72 percent between 1980 and 2018, they are still uncommon. Twins account for about 33 out of every 1,000 births.
What is the chance of having identical twins? About three to four out of 1,000 births are identical twins. So it’s rare again.
Savannah Combs, 23, was thrilled to learn she was pregnant with twins. Then I discovered another rarity: they were both born with Down syndrome.
Of course, the news was disturbing. Savannah and her husband Justin Ackerman knew that because of their plight, some people would look down on them and their children.
On the other hand, Savannah finds it very valuable.
“What they have is very rare,” she told News4JAX. “But they were my gems.”
Savannah, of Middleburg, Florida, documented her postpartum experiences on TikTok with her two children, Kennadi Rue and Mckenli Ackerman, and they gained instant followers.
Savannah said in one of her videos that she was asked to abort her children because they wouldn’t live.
I decided to keep them and give them a chance.
Savannah added, “Every date [before the birth] that they were alive was a blessing to me.”
This posted Mckenli Kennadi Ackerman on Sunday, February 6, 2022.
Her husband went to training camp when she found out they had Down syndrome.
Savannah was 29 weeks pregnant when she went to the hospital and gave birth to her two daughters. Kennadi Rue and Mckenli Ackerman, identical twin daughters, were born on May 12, 2021.
The twins were born two months early, so they had to spend many weeks in the NICU before being released.
“They were called mono di twins because they had their individual sacs but sharеd the same placenta, which meant they’d be identical,” she explained.
“Mo di twins are quite uncommon.” When you add Down syndrome to the mix, it’s likе one in every two million.”
Savannah claims they are just likе any other youngster, despite their uncommon illness.
“They have emotions.” They have a heart that beats. They know how to communicate. They know how to do things in the same way you do. “They’ll get there,” she predicted.
“Like I said, it may be a step behind schedule, but they’ll get it done.” These youngsters are fierce tiny things who are also happy little things, as I’ve discovered.”
Savannah posts wonderful updates on TikTok as each youngster continues to reach milestones.
“I’m going to tell them that they’re just likе us, and that if they set their minds to it, they’ll get there.”
Some people, however, feel compelled to insult Savannah and her family. As a result, the young mother has had to deal with some really insensitive social media users.
One person wrote to the mother, “I wouldn’t want those babies; if mine came out likе that, they would be straight up for adơрtion.”
Savannah, on the other hand, had the ideal response, which she published on Facebook.
“It’s a good thing they weren’t born to you, but they were born to me,” I said. God understood what he was doing when he chose the right parents for these children who would love them no matter what.”
Beautiful young ladies. Anyone who claims differently is simply being cruel. These people are the most valuable and caring people on the planet! Please spread the word about this touching tale on Facebook.
