The condition is called diprosopus, in Greek it means “two faces.”
The infant has a single body and two identical faces along with two brains.
Doctors say the girls, named Faith and Hope, have an unknown future. “How the neurology works and how the brain is connected - that is really hard to determine whether they will function normally,” doctors told The Herald.
The girl’s parents are Renee Young and Simon Howie. "Even though there is only one body, we call them our twins," Howie told Woman’s Day.
He proudly continued saying the girls were"breathing perfectly on their own and feeding."
Most children born with diprosopus don’t survive long.
However, despite complications, Missouri’s Tres Johnson has the condition and is now ten-years-old.
Renee and Simon are confident they’ll have a similar outcome. “A little luck, a little bit of faith, a bit of hope, hopefully we’ll come out the other side, as long as they’re fighters, and they keep fighting; everything will be OK,” Simon told The Herald.
