Mom of rare twins with Down syndrome shuts down critics with photo showing how beautiful they are

Savannah Combs, 23, from Middleburg, Florida, delighted in the news of her twin pregnancy, but it came with an unexpected twist – both twins had Down syndrome. Despite potential judgments, Savannah and husband Justin Ackerman cherished their daughters, Kennadi Rue and Mckenli Ackerman. Facing societal pressure to abort, Savannah decided to give her twins a fighting chance.

Born prematurely on May 12, 2021, the mono-di twins spent weeks in the NICU due to their early arrival. Savannah, sharing their journey on TikTok, emphasized their uniqueness. The girls, with a rare combination of mono-di twinning and Down syndrome, are “like one in 2 million.”

Facing criticism on social media, Savannah responded with grace. When told someone wouldn’t want such babies, she countered, “Good thing they weren’t born to you and were born to me. God knew what he was doing by giving these babies to the right parents who would love them regardless.”

Despite their rare condition, Savannah affirms that her daughters are just like any other children, emphasizing their ability to learn and progress. Through TikTok updates, she shares the girls’ milestones, hoping to convey their resilience and joy, emphasizing that they will “get there as long as they put their minds to it.”
