They Were The Rarest Triplets In The World… But How They Look Now Brought Me To Tears.

The arrival of triplets is always something extra special. But sisters, Mackenzie, Macy and Madeline Garrison are even more unusual.

Of all triplet births, theirs is only the second known case in which two of the children came into the world as conjoined twins. Against all odds, Macy and Mackenzie survived the critical first days after being born.

Unfortunately, their biological mother was unable to care for the children. They were therefore given over to the loving custody of Darla and Jeff Garrison. They were already the parents of three sons but were overjoyed at the chance to expand their family.

The decision was made to separate Mackenzie and Macy in order to give them both the chance to lead independent lives.

To make the operation easier, their skin had to first be stretched with skin expanders. In a 24-hour-long, high-risk procedure, the nine-month-old girls were separated with great care and precision. Happily, the operation was a complete success. Mackenzie and Macy were each left with only one leg; but with the help of custom-made prosthetics, it’s no problem for them. Physiotherapy will help them later to get around without assistance. What is much more important: both are alive!

Two years after the operation, Darla and Jeff were given the green light to adopt all three sisters. Together with their sons, the new family of eight live all together on a farm in Iowa. The girls even have their own horse! They are healthy and happy and love to frolic around.


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

The sisters received prosthetic limbs and learned to walk with the help of physical therapists.

Despite their physical limitations, the sisters learned to become quite independent, and they even got their own horses!

It’s so lovely how their story turned out, isn’t it? Each of the girls has her own life to lead and in the meantime, they get to enjoy the togetherness of sisterhood. A real happy ending.
