Laura Vangoethem's twins have had an unusually rocky first nine months of life.
"I think we were given an 85 percent chance that they would survive," she said.
Anna and Reed were due last July, but were born at the end of March. They stayed in the neonatal intensive care unit for most of the summer.
"It was 25 weeks, and we knew they weren't the youngest ones in the NICU, but they were close to the youngest and they were really, really sick for a long time," she said.
