A true miracle gift brings a baby girl into the world in Paris!

Karine Thiriot, 39, gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Victoria Thiriot, in Paris after a 15-year struggle to get pregnant. Karine’s dream came true only because her identical twin, Stephanie, donated an ovary to her!

According to the Daily Mail, Karine suffers from Turner Syndrome and was born without ovaries. It’s a syndrome that affects one in 2,500 girls, and occurs when one of the two X chromosomes found in females is completely or partially missing.

Karine, who had tried in-vitro multiple times, had expected to remains infertile for life. But when her twin Stephanie donated one of her  own ovaries, Karine was finally able to conceive naturally!

More than a year after the 2009 transplant surgery, Karine finally gave birth to 6-lb., 3-oz. Victoria on March 8. Dr. Guy Kerbrat, who delivered Victoria, says the baby is healthy in all ways and doesn’t suffer from Turner Syndrome!

I think it’s a wonderful gift. One question though does it mean she’s giving birth to her sister’s children and not her own? We are born with our own genetic code in our ovaries….Lucky that it is her twin so the genes are similar. Also this must be the reason her baby does not have the syndrome. At least she’s able to experience the miracle of life.
