Life isn’t easy for a conjoined twin. The condition itself presents a lot of functional challenges in life, but the scariest part of all is that many do not survive more than a few hours after birth.

Mackenzie and Macy Garrison are unlike any conjoined twins you’ve ever seen, however. When you see what’s so special about them, you’ll realize just how precious the miracle of life really is.

Luckily, the surgery was successful. This photo of the happy, newly separated girls was taken just five days after the operation.
