Successfully separated conjoined twins were at one time scheduled to be aborted

Eight months after being separated formerly conjoined twins Owen and Emmett Ezell are leaving the hospital.  What many of the recent national accounts of Owen and Emmett's story may leave out is that the adorable twins were at one time scheduled for abortion after their original doctor believed the twins had little chance of survival.  Thankfully, the opinion of a second doctor saved their lives. 

Jenni and Dave Ezell call the twins their "little miracles" and say each step has been part of a greater plan.

"They wouldn't be here if it weren't for God. It's the truth," said Jenni Ezell.

To celebrate the twins' health and success, a small celebration is being planned on Wednesday prior to their departure. Ahead of that celebration, the hospital and Ezell family released new photographs of the now 9-month-old boys on Tuesday.
