Abby and Brittany Hensel are about to turn 16. That means they will learn to drive, think about dating boys and begin to think about going to college. Pretty much the normal fare, except Abby and Brittany are conjoined twins - two distinct people sharing one very distinct body.
While most conjoined twins are separated shortly after birth, that was never a viable option for them. They have one set of legs and one set of arms and share several internal organs (not their heart or lungs). And while most conjoined twins who have made it to the age of 16 still conjoined would never consider something like driving, they were not Abby and Brittany.
Abby and Brittany have been doing extraordinary things all their lives. They ride bikes and motorcycles. They play the piano, volleyball, basketball, softball, swim - basically, anything many other children do. They are attractive, smart, funny, outgoing and have been blessed with a wonderful family and a very laid back community that treats them like anyone else. As a result they are the most "normal" and possibly most talented conjoined twins ever.
They typically resist all media and press - it's one of the reasons they live such a normal life. But they have agreed (for the third time) to allow us to help them tell their story. Our story about Abby and Brittany will tell their back story and recap many of the amazing things they have done as children and look at their current life as ambitious and adventuresome teenagers.
Their story will amaze, inspire and give new meaning to what viewers think is possible for conjoined twins who are never separated.
