World is definitely not big especially for the Bosin twins who were born conjoined from chest to navel and had their livers attached but were separated soon after their birth to lead a normal life.
Now 15-year-olds Eustocia and Eaustina are from Papua New Guinea. Soon after their birth, at 16 days they underwent a surgery and were separated at the Royal Children's Hospital.
Though their parents never told them about their conjoined birth but recently the twins faced the whole truth when they return to Melbourne, which obviously stunned them. The truth was out when the twins saw the whole film of their life-changing surgery, while they visited their now retired surgeon, Alex Auldist.
Twins dad Henry Bosin explained: "We did not want them to be embarrassed by telling them they were not born 'normal' twins”.
Former Rotarian Barrie Cooper was the one, who did all preparations for the twins to fly to Australia for their surgery. Upon seeing them yesterday for the first time in eight years, he said. "It was very emotional. I was very deeply moved ... to see them as 15-year-old girls because when I first saw them, I didn't think they had a hope”, Mr. Cooper said.
