Savannah Combs, a 23-year-old woman from Florida, was overjoyed when she found out she was pregnant with identical twins.
However, her excitement turned to emotional turmoil when she discovered that her twins had Down syndrome, knowing that some people might judge them because of their disorder. Despite this, Savannah and her husband decided to keep their babies and give them a fighting chance.
Savannah shared her post-pregnancy journey with her daughters on TikTok, where they quickly gained a lot of followers. In one of her videos, Savannah revealed that she was urged to terminate her pregnancy because her babies would not make it. However, she decided to keep them, and they were born when she was 29 weeks pregnant.
The twins arrived two months before their due date and had to spend several weeks in the NICU before they could come home. They are called mono di twins, meaning that they had their own sacs but shared the same placenta, and they are identical.
Savannah shares updates of her adorable daughters on TikTok, where she says that she wants to let them know that they’re just like any other kids and they will get there as long as they put their minds to it. Despite this, there are still those who criticize Savannah and her girls. She has had to deal with insensitive comments on social media, but she always has the perfect response.
One user wrote that they would not want the babies and that they would be straight up for adoption. However, Savannah had the perfect answer, which she shared on Facebook. She said that these noble babies were not born to that mother and were born to her instead. She believes that God knew that he was giving these babies to the right parents who would love them unconditionally.
Studies have shown that children with Down syndrome benefit greatly from loving and supportive grandparents. Grandparents can provide extra support and guidance, which is essential for navigating the world, especially for children with Down syndrome. With years of experience and practice, grandparents know exactly how to handle any situation. They can impart life lessons and tell the best jokes, and they often make pretty good babysitters too.
