Although her family and friends sometimes don’t understand her decisions, one nurse’s determination to transform the lives of two little Angels is untouched by the opinions of those around her. I believe that nurses are truly Angels on Earth. Nurses dedicate their working lives to helping heal those who are sick and injured. Nurses are known for compassion and bringing more humanity to health care. Nurses are the front line of medicine.
They make a difference to society. They work round the clock tirelessly to serve patients. Whether it’s monitoring a critically ill patient in the ICU or giving a sponge bath cleaning up a wound, they give their heart and soul. They’re armed with the emotional stability to deal with different situations. Whether it’s a happy moment like bringing new lives into the world or the grim situation of the death of a patient, they tackle tough situations with nerves of steel and presence of mind.
Nurses meet people from all walks of life, but every patient is important to them. Their bond is special and unique. They can be called as Angels, wearing that white uniform and being beside the patient, monitoring every minute changes, even if they’re tired as hell. And the main job of Angels is to watch over people and protect them. So you can refer to nurses as Angels instead of sending us white winged Angels.
God gave us nurses. So if you come across a nurse to take some time to say a few kind words and appreciate them because they truly deserve it. However, when she’s a nurse and has a mother’s heart, miracles can happen. Like this incredible woman that we see her beautiful action saves these abandoned twins when it comes to family, it’s fair to say that no two situations are the same, especially for the nearly half a million American children who are in the foster system. For some of these kids, it’s a temporary solution.
But for others, it symbolizes a precarious limbo in which a permanent home may sadly never end up being in the cards. A miracle mother of six who fell in love with baby twins with a rare genetic deformity has devoted her life to raising them after they were taken away from their parents. Twins with a rare genetic deformity that’s left them with misshapen oversized heads have found a loving home thanks to a kind hearted nurse who wanted to adopt them. Both Matthew and Marshall Tropanya, three have misshapen oversized heads due to Phiper syndrome, which caused their skull bones to fuse prematurely in the womb. Kindhearted mum Linda Trippana, 58, took them in as a foster carer when they were four weeks old, after their parents were deemed unable to look after them.
Social Services staff later approached Linda, a full time medical foster care, to ask if she would consider adopting one of the boys for good. But she fell in love with them and said she could never separate the adorable pair, so adopted them both devoted. Linda of Minnesota US said, When I first saw the twins, I thought they were the most adorable little things I’d ever seen. They had these big heads and tiny bodies. They weighed £8, but their bodies were the size of newborns, so most of the weight was because of their heads.
I just fell in love with them. I knew in my heart that they were my boys. I don’t know what would have happened if I hadn’t looked after them. They would have tried to find them another foster home, but who knows? Their condition means it would be hard for a normal parent to look after them.
I don’t know many moms who could do what I do, but my career as a nurse prepared me well. My family and friends think I’m crazy because I’m 58 years old and I should be looking forward to retirement, but I couldn’t care less about that. People struggle to understand. They say, oh, those kids are going to tie you down. But I’ve learned to live with it.
I just feel privileged that I’ve been able to make a real positive difference. To Matthew and Marshall’s lives Cypher’s syndrome, a rare genetic defect which the twins inherited from their father, affects a baby’s face and skull. It occurs when the parts of the skull fuse together too early, meaning the bone can’t expand as the brain grows. Matthew and Marshall were diagnosed with Piper type two, which is characterized by severe hand and foot deformities, fibrous joints, high foreheads, displaced ears and protruding eyes. These conditions mean they require roundtheclock care and have regular medical appointments.
Over the last two years, they’ve both had three operations to reshape the bone that’s fused together before they were born. To allow space for their brains to grow. They need breathing tubes to survive, use wheelchairs to get around because the condition affects their mobility and wear glasses because their eyesight is poor. Linda needs to take their temperature every few hours to check for infections, and she tucks them into bed tightly because at night, because their hands are free, they could yank out their breathing tubes. The tubes also mean they have a direct airway to their lungs, so a simple cold or flu virus could kill them.
And whenever she takes them outdoors, she brings an oxygen tank in case of emergencies. But Linda says that with the right care, which she is determined to give them, they have a shot at living independent lives. The mum, who has three older biological children, has been with them every step of the way since she began fostering them in 2014, and their adoption was finalized last month. It comes after Linda gave up her career working as a regular nurse to look after poorly children in her own home back in 1986. She has fostered 16 children since.
She’s supported by registered nurses who help her look after Matthew and Marshall and her three other adoptive children. Linda said, When I was a little girl, I always thought I wanted to be a nurse and take care of babies and kids. It’s always been my passion, and once I started doing the foster care and teaching other nurses how to provide care, I just felt like it was something I was born to do. There are a lot of hard work, but also a lot of fun. They’re the happiest and smiling.
Almost always, if one twin laughs, the other twin will automatically laugh as well. Everybody just falls in love with them. And indeed, she has tripanya works through the night to care for the twins, even going so far as to take their temperature every few hours to ensure that they aren’t suffering from an infection. And you thought taking care of a newborn was hard? We truly give Japan a lot of credit for taking on these two lovely kiddos.
They seem so happy to learn even more about this family. Be sure to watch Inside Editions video below. If anything, the mother feels privileged to help her babies as much as possible, hoping that her care and love will help them grow up independent. If anyone can achieve this, it’s this nurse. This is not just because of her expertise, but also her heart of gold.
If we choose to live in heaven through realizing that despite the many sufferings and pains we have to endure, everything happens for a purpose and that our place within it has a meaning to be fulfilled. And by living in accordance with the other of life, by taking our challenges and rising above them, we aren’t at the mercy of life anymore, but rather in accordance with it. Dare I say, even in friendship with life.
Now this doesn’t mean that we’re equal to life itself or to the driving force of life, but merely that we’re brave, courageous and strong enough to face it and say, I won’t be subject to suffering. I’ll stand beside you and follow you accordingly.
And the proof of this is all around us by what humans have accomplished. Against all odds, the benefits of parenting are taken together and each person has to parse for himself or herself. What kind of parenting will make them happy? I had no choice as we were infertile. If you have a choice, do what’s in your heart, but don’t do it for the benefit or for what people tell you are the benefits or to look like a hero.
An adopted child is not a project or social due goodery. It’s just a garden variety parenting and a very personal choice. When it’s done, much is given, but much is also received. It’s a true exchange of gifts. It’s very common for those who are adopted to feel rejected and abandoned by their birth parents.
This is accompanied by feelings of grief and loss. There’s no time or age when these feelings surface, but sooner or later they do take a long time to get out of the fog. Interestingly enough, many adoptees deal with this privately on our own because we don’t want to burden or have anyone know of our struggles when we’ve been told we should be grateful and other things that aren’t true. Fiber syndrome is a dominant genetic disorder. Fiber syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by the premature fusion of certain bones of the skull, which affects the shape of the head and face.
In addition, the syndrome includes abnormalities of hands and feet. While many genetic disorders require genes from both parents, dominant genetic disorders only require a single copy of an abnormal gene. Fiber type two is caused by a mutation in the gene FGFR two, which instructs cell division and cell growth. It can come from either parent. It can also be caused by a new gene mutation.
As is typically the case with Cipher syndrome two. Many of the characteristic facial features result from the premature fusion of the skull bones. The head is unable to grow normally, which leads to a high prominent forehead and eyes that appear to bulge and are wide set. In addition, there are underdeveloped upper jaw. More than 50% of children with Cipher syndrome has hearing loss.
Dental problems are also common in people with Piper syndrome. The thumbs and first or big toes are wide and bend away from each other. Usually, short fingers and toes are also common, but there may be some wedding or fusion between the digits.
The key problem is the early fusion of the skull, which can be corrected by a series of surgical procedures, often within the first three months after birth. Later surgeries are necessary to correct respiratory and facial deformities.
