A set of conjoined twin girls have been successfully separated at a Texas Children's Hospital.
For 13-month-old twin girls Anna Grace and Hope Elizabeth Richards they spent the beginning of their lives sharing a liver, diaphragm and part of their heart.
The girls spent much of their lives in the neonatal intensive care unit, until they had their seven-hour surgery to separate them in January 2018.
The twins are now recovering in their own beds at the Texas Children's Hospital in Houston.
"We've thought about and prayed for this day for almost two years," their mother, Jill Richards said, "it's an indescribable feeling to look at our girls in two separate beds."
