Conjoined twins make their first visit home to Arkansas


SHERWOOD, Ark. (KTHV) - An Arkansas family left home for Dallas two years ago, facing one of the most emotionally difficult challenges of their lives; saving the lives of their conjoined twins.

After two years and many milestones later, the Ezell family returned home to visit family in Sherwood on Sunday, September 6.

The toddlers, Emmett and Owen Ezell, were walking, playing and getting into all sorts of things just like any other two-year-old. But their healthy condition is not one that is very common. Doctors see boys like Owen and Emmett about once every 200,000 deliveries.Three out of five conjoined twins are stillborn, andonly 35 percent survive for just a day.

Jenni and Dave Ezell say they have put themselves in the grace of God, and are simply thankful."In my prayers, I tell God, you know, there are yourboys and whatever you need to do with them, I give them to you,"said Jenni Ezell.
