The twins, who were conjoined at the lower half of their body, were separated after a grueling 18-hour surgery at a Tennessee hospital.

Emotions were present on Miracle and Testimony's first birthday.

Miracle and Testimony were born at a hospital close to their parents' home in Enugu, Nigeria, which is an eight-hour drive east from the coastal capitol city Lagos. "If you see them, you won't even think they had surgery last week".

"Without faith, things wouldn't have worked out", the girls' father, Sam Ayeni, said in a statement.

The Linking Hands Foundation set the family up with Le Bonheur where they met with over a hundred faculty members including 20 doctors and surgeons.

In this November 8, 2016 photo provided by the Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, twins from Nigeria, Miracle and Testimony Ayeni, rest after being separated at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. Now only blood connects the two babies as doctors say they should someday be able to walk and live normal lives.

The twins' mother said they are healing miraculously.

"Without separation, their future wasn't very good", Dr. Max Langham who led the operation said at a news conference.

The girls had been in the Tennessee hospital since they arrived in the U.S. June 28 with their parents Samuel Olusegun Ayeni and Mary Abiodun Ayeni, their older sister and their pastor after being offered free flights from a Nigerian airline. I'm happy because they are one and they are separated, alive and safe.
