So 45-year-old J. McConnell, when she found out that both of her future twins would be with a genetic pathology, was horrified. Her first thought was to give the boys up for adoption. But she found the strength to cope with this difficult situation. And, looking ahead, we can say for sure that mom did not regret it!
