In the family of Nicole and Todd Bailey from Sheffield (UK), two wonderful daughters are growing up — Harper and Quinn. They are twins, but they are very different, since Harper is a special child with Down syndrome. Doctors say that the case when only one baby is born with this genetic disorder is one in a million.

Doctors could not recognize the disease of the child in the womb and everything became clear when Harper was born. She was born first, and her sister Quinn was 38 minutes later. After giving birth, the doctors apologized to the family for not being able to recognize the violation, but the couple does not consider Harper's illness a problem and do not blame the doctors for anything.

Nikola dotes on her babies and is sure that, despite their very young age, they love each other and have a strong connection with each other on a subconscious level. The woman also said that Quinn used to envy her older sister, who was the first to grow enough hair on her head to collect a tail. The youngest then could not boast of a hairstyle — only a fuzz was visible on her head.

Nicola particularly noted that Harper started smiling before her sister. At the same time, the mother of wonderful girls is sure that it is impossible to compare them, because even though they are sisters, they are very different. In an interview with journalists, the woman touched on another important problem — the attitude of others towards Harper.

Unfortunately, the genetic deviation is not the only problem of the girl. She was born with a heart defect and at the age of 6 she is waiting for a difficult operation to eliminate it. Various cardiac pathologies are often found in "sunny" children.

Once upon a time, Down syndrome was a sentence for a child. Such people were considered unpromising in training and their life span, due to concomitant diseases, rarely exceeded 30 years. But today everything is different - modern medicine and advanced teaching methods allow "sunny" children not only to live a long and fulfilling life, but also to receive higher education.
