Sheffield married couple had twins.
After the daughters were born, it was discovered that one of them had Down syndrome.
This is a somewhat uncommon case, according to physicians.
For the second time, Nicola and Todd Bailey became parents.
Lucas, their four-year-old son, is already under their care.
The couple was expecting twins and had no idea one of their girls had a genetic defect.
32-year-old Nikola works as a nurse, and during pregnancy, she underwent all the necessary studies.
Doctors did not have any suspicions that the child has malformation.
Harper and Quinn, who was born 38 minutes later than her sister, were the girls’ names.
The physician who delivered the baby expressed sympathy to Nicola, but Nicola and Todd believe that both daughters are beautiful and that they will adore them equally.
“Despite the fact that Harper has Down syndrome, they are very similar and there is a connection between them that all twins have.
Our family is unique, and I wouldn’t change anything,” Nikola said.
