Identical Twin Sisters Gave Birth To Sons On The Same Day

If that doesn’t make you believe in a special twin bond, then we don’t know what will

Twins have a different bond than regular brothers and sisters. They have a connection that only they could understand. And sometimes, these connections are so incredible that some stories seemed to be straight out of a movie.

Take identical twins Jalynne April Crawford and Janelle Ann Leopoldo’s story, for example. The sisters gave birth to sons on the same day, in the same Arizona hospital and both by C-section. If that doesn’t make you believe in a special twin bond, then we don’t know what will.

Jalynne’s newborn is her fourth and the second for Janelle. Growing up, the two sisters, who are extremely close, say they always hoped to have babies together.

Jalynne recalled when she got a text message from Janelle, saying that she was expecting. Just four days before, she found out that she was pregnant, so you could imagine how surprised she was when she heard the good news from her sister.

“When I got the text my face lit up … I got chills in my arm and then seconds later she called, and we were both like ‘Thank you, thank you, God’ … I was like ‘this is God’s way of answering our prayers.’”

What makes the story even more beautiful is that Janelle had previously struggled with fertility and had been diagnosed with the polycystic ovarian syndrome, a hormonal disorder that makes it more challenging to get pregnant, and had an ectopic pregnancy. Jalynne herself had suffered two miscarriages in that time as well.

The sisters live in separate cities, one in Arizona and one in California, so they decided they wanted to give birth on the same day so that their families could be there for both.

Jalynne gave birth in the morning and Janelle welcomed her baby in the afternoon. Jalynne said, “We’re going to remember this for the rest of our lives.”

Jalynne then gushed about the special moment on Instagram. She shared that “these miracle boys will be best friends forever born on 6/18/18 together.”

The sanctuary's founder Elizabeth Feldhausen shared a series of snaps of Terry cat napping with the rescues, and he quickly became an online sensation.

Sometimes friendship can transcend age, race, or even species. A lonely narwhal that lost its way has found a new family. The poor juvenile has found amazing friends in a pod of beluga whales.

The unusual family has been spotted in Quebec's St. Lawrence River. This is certainly surprising since narwhals usually live in the Arctic. Although it is unclear how the lonely creature ended up in Canadian waters, it is great to see that he has already made some great friends.

One of these beluga whales is actually a narwhal!

Most people complain about the slightest shortcomings or mishaps in their lives - the traffic jam, the strong rains, or the lack of money. Some, on the other hand, look at the positive side of life, just like a young Filipino boy who has no arms.

Instead of complaining about his disability, he strives to live normally - attending school, playing with friends, and doing his hobby, carpentry.

Meet Niño Dayon from the Philippines.
