Rania and Amina were born on February 11, 2013 only one minute apart. Rania weighed 1 lb 4 oz and Amina weighed 1 lb 7 oz. The girls love being held together! Moms says that they will turn their faces towards each other and Amina will attempt to smooth her sister's cheek with the palm of her hand! These little sweeties have been comforting each other this way even while they were in the womb.
The girls have struggled with renal failure, pulmonary hypertension, chronic lung disease, hypothyroidism and slow weight gain. They both have retinopathy of prematurity and will need close monitoring.
Rania and Amina are blessed to have three siblings at home- Sam, Suaad and Aliya. The girls mom spends endless hours holding these little ones and she can’t wait to take them home. These girls still have the preemie journey of playing catch up. Eden’s Garden is thrilled to help this family with everyday needs while they are inpatient.
