Twins Born Two Weeks Apart Defy All Odds To Stay Alive




With different birthdays and personalities, Arthur and Amara are twins who have an amazing story to tell when they grow up.

Arthur was born at just 26 weeks gestation and weighed 2 pounds, 2 ounces while his sister was born two weeks apart and weighed only 1 pound, 3 ounces.

Doctors and their parents never thought they would survive, let alone grow into perfect babies.

Their mother, Latroya Woolridgehad felt an abnormal sharp pain when she left for the hospital.

On getting there, she had to make the decision of delivering one and keeping the other till its safe to deliver.

The risk was that the lungs and circulatory systems of both children might not develop properly.

However, they developed perfectly and are now doing well.

Eyewitness News reported that the children did not only beat the odds for babies born so prematurely, they also beat convention.

Arthur and Amara are said to have different astrological signs. Amara is a Capricorn and Arthur an Aquarius.

Amara was born under one presidential administration, and Arthur, another.
