    These links are related to the Hensel twins from MN. Beautiful! I believe their physical makeup is similar to the these twins mentioned here.

    I pray these Brazilian twins fare as well!

    From the second link above:


    Two Minnesota girls blow that theory out of the water. Abigail and Brittany Hensel share one body--when most teen girls can't even share clothes without a meltdown. Born in 1990 Abby and Brittany had only a 1 in 30 million chance of surviving the first 24 hours. The girls have grown up to be healthy--and the only thing that isn't "normal" about them is how unbelievably well-adjusted they are.

    I wonder why it's more common in the West. Is there something environmental that causes this?

    In any case they're sure to be more likely to survive childbirth in areas with access to good prenatal/ perinatal care.

    Not doubting the story - yet - but the name given for the mother, Maria de Nazare, can be translated "Mary of Nazareth"....and this is Christmastime. And the infant(s) are called Emanoel and Jesus. A bit convenient, perhaps? just coincidence?

    I missed being born on Christmas day by an hour and forty mins. My 2nd oldest brother was born within days of Christmas of that year. Mary and a Joseph. Actually, on both sides of our family, there are enough biblical names to write our own biblical saga LOL

    Is it possible this is a Catholic/religious issue, as in our family, rather than a fraudulent story? Throw in the Christmas timing of the births/birth (not sure how to word that) and the names make sense?

    Just some thoughts on this :)

    Yes, agreed. As given names the Emanoel and Jesus make perfect sense considering the season. No problem at all with those. But the mother just happens to be named "Maria de Nazare"? That's a bit too much of a coincidence, especially given the season, for some.

    (But it also might be that the mother's actual name hasn't been given to media yet, and that some clever sort at Daily Mail decided that, rather than leave her unnamed, "Maria de Nazare" would be a good one!)

    Yes! They very well could be protecting the mother's privacy.

    I hope no one would create a fake story using such beautiful baby boys to do their dirty work. At first glance, the picture doesn't appear to be fake.
