After 20 hours of surgery, doctors separated 13-month-old twins Jadon and Anias McDonald, who were born joined at the head. The boys are recovering at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City. Their mom and dad are just now becoming used to having two separate babies.

“When they told me they were wheeling Jadon up first, it took me a second to comprehend. I actually asked why they rearranged the room because I hadn't really internalized the idea that there would be two beds in here,” mom Nicole McDonald wrote on Facebook. “Happy rebirth day.”
