Our world is full of challenges and sorrows, but it also involves incredible miracles that give us hope and inspire us to fight harder for a better future. The Sun has a news story about a British couple that has been blessed with twins twice!
A Very Lucky Family Has Beautiful Twins Twice
Dean Durrant and Alison Spooner are the happy British couple who gave birth to their first pair of twin baby daughters in 2001. Because they are mixed, they anticipated their twins to be a mix of both races.
However, things did not go as planned for the young couple. Lauren, one of the twins, was born white while Hayleigh, the other, was born black, which is a 1 in 500,000 probability.
In 2009, the charming couple received yet another major surprise of fate. They were expecting twin baby daughters for the second time! And, as last time, Baby Miya was born black and Baby Leah was born white, giving them the world’s first family to have two pairs of twins, each with their unique color; truly stunning!
Hayleigh, 18, told The Sun in an exclusive interview that people don’t believe them when they see them: “Some people can be really rude. They’ll say, ‘You’re lying, you aren’t twins — prove it!’“
“So we’ll reel off the same address or pull our passports out. It’s nice to see the shock on people’s faces. When we went to college it was difficult because there were lots of groups of Asian, white, and black kids.”
“The black group were trying to integrate me and I was like, ‘This is my white twin sister.’” “No one could believe it. People look at us like it’s some kind of miracle. I’m still amazed that we are twins.”
While Lauren also talked about how Hayleigh is her best friend: “People just assume we’re best friends rather than sisters, let alone twins.” “I’m happy with that because she is my best friend. We are going to go out clubbing together. The bouncers are going to get a shock when they see we are related.”
Alison, the twins’ mother, described herself as “very delighted and elated” with them: “I can’t believe my miracle babies are turning 18.” “They are best friends and close in every way, apart from looking different. It took me some years to understand the science of how they could appear so different.”
“They’re now more of a phenomenon with their friends. Their school used to have a big picture of them in biology class. No one could understand or believe it.” Leah, their younger sister, similarly expressed her deep affection for her big sisters:
“Lauren and Hayleigh are my heroes.” “I like my older sisters. We want to be like them when we get grown up but we don’t see them at the moment, they are always at college or work.” This lovely family deserves to be praised and adored! We adore them because they signify pure love without bounds or preconceived assumptions.
