After a prenatal diagnosis, the Delaney twins were born in July 2016 at CHOP's Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit. At 11 months of age, they were separated during a long and complex surgery. In all, they spent 485 days in the hospital. Now 2½ years old, they are home and making amazing strides in their growth and development. When the girls are 3–5 years of age, the surgeons will bring them back to the operating room for skull reconstruction and additional plastic surgery.
