Deformed Twins Are Left At Hospital Without Parents, So Nurse Takes Them Home Instead

Deformed Twins Are Left At Hospital Without Parents, So Nurse Takes Them Home Instead

Matthew and Marshall were born with Pfeiffer syndrome, a rare genetic deformity which caused their skulls to improperly grow while still inside the womb.

The boys have oversized and misshapen heads, severe hand and foot deformities, fibrous joints and protruding eyes.

Shortly after birth, Matthew and Marshall were taken away from their parents who were deemed unfit to provide the right care for them.

Enter Linda Trepanier, a 58-year-old full-time medical foster carer from Michigan. The kindhearted nurse, who has fostered 16 other children in the past, has three grown kids and grandchildren of her own.

Linda agreed to foster the twins when they were four months old. Then, social services asked if she would adopt one of the boys.

People told Linda she would be crazy to do it — that raising a baby with special needs would “tie her down.” After all, Matthew and Marshall require 24/7 care, which involves checking their temperature in the middle of the night and constantly monitoring their breathing tubes.

But then Linda made a decision that left everyone stunned.

  1. I hope there is a way for the twins to stay together…looking after 2 babies would be more work but perhaps her family would help out…it is very sad to think of the twins being separated.

  2. I’m really inspired along with your writing abilities as neatly as
    with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to look
    a great weblog like this one nowadays..
