Conjoined Twin Babies Face Substantially Different Challenges After Separation

The troubles of unfortunate Minnesota twin babies who were born conjoined, but separated shortly afterward, didn’t end with their separation in November.

One of the twins was later determined to have approximately 24 separate bone fractures in his legs and ribs.

The twins’ parents have been criminally charged with assaulting them and a civil suit is pending to terminate their parental rights.

The mother still has supervised visitation with the kids, but the father’s visitation was terminated as a result of his incarceration on unrelated charges.

Both parents are fighting the criminal charges and civil allegations against them.

In the meantime, the twins and their older sister remain in foster care.
