It seemed so surreal. Just a few hours ago Iíd been rushed into the operating theatre as my baby twin boys were on their way. But unbelievably only one had come out. I had one baby lying in an incubator having arrived safely into the world - and yet I was lying here still pregnant with the other baby. The doctors didnít know what to say. As the days went by, still I could feel my baby moving around my womb. Carter, his twinbrother, was slowly gaining weight day by day. Yet Logan wasnít coming out. He was staying put. The doctors had managed to stop labour for a few hours - or even a day or too. But this was ridulous. Two weeks had gone past - yet still Logan hadnít come out to meet his big brother. ( anderson )

The doctor delivered his devastating verdict. ĎIím afraid your daughter has liver disease too.í I couldnít believe it. My son Matthew had also been born with a fatal liver condition, and he had just had a transplant. But as I looked down at Rebecca, lying there so tiny, could I really be as lucky again. It didnít seem possible that she could have a successful transplant too. Weíd been told that the chances of having another baby born with the same condition would be billions to one, so my husband Michael, 47, a production planner, and I had decided that we wanted a brother or sister for Matthew. But we had no idea how it would turn out - that tiny Rebecca would be born with the same fatal condition as her brother, and face the same race against time to get a transplant too. ( dodd )

TO her parents, 12 year old Martha Sirotkin is a walking miracle. Due to a terrible muscular disease, she has spent part of her young life completely twisted, only able to lie on the floor. But thanks to pioneering surgery where surgeons inserted electrical stimulators into her brain, Martha has now straightened out and can lead a normal life. From only being able to lie on her back, Martha has even amazed her parents by being able to play rugby at her school. Her mother Sheila, 54, a former teacher, who lives in London with husband Ray, 55, also a teacher, and son Jamie, ten, said: ĎWe have finally got our daughter back and we canít thank the surgeons enough.

THIS time last year her life hung in the balance and her parents didnít know whether she would even survive. Little Rosie Wright had been critically injured in the Dreamspace art show disaster, which killed two people in July last year. She had suffered a punctured lung, broken ankle, thigh, collarbone, ribs and back, aswell as a lacerated liver and head wounds. But against all the odds, exactly a year after the accident, Rosie has recovered from her injuries and now is running in the local park, much to the delight of her mum Penny. Mrs Wright, 39, a full time mother, who lives in Chester le Street, County Durham, said: ĎIt really is wonderful to see how Rosiehas made such a remarkable recovery. You would never think it was the same little girl who was so badly injured just a year ago.

Kelly, who is now 16, had been born with cystic fibrosis - but that had never stopped her singing. Right from being little, her voice was sweet and clear, and she was always singing. Cystic fibrosis damages the lungs, and many sufferers find it hard to breathe. But it didnít stop Kelly from singing. I used to call her my little pied piper - as when she started to sing, people would stop and listen. Everyone just falls in love with Kelly when they hear her voice - it is just magical. But now time is running out for Kelly. She needs a new pair of lungs, or else my little songbird wil be silenced for ever. But there is one problem. Kelly has got a bug growing in her lungs, which means the doctors canít carry out a lung transplant, as it would kill her. But she wonít survive either without a transplant, so we are just hoping the bug clears up in time for her to have a transplant. But even though she desperately needs a transplant, it still doesnít stop Kelly from singing.

The operation was a success and Charlie, 18 months, has recovered at his home in Stockton on Tees, County Durham.

I was shocked as the doctor held out the illustration infront of me - it was a child who resembled prehistoric man, taken thousands of years ago before man had developed properly. ĎThis is what your child could be like, and be unable to walk or talk.í warned the doctor. It was a horrific picture and such a shock. I thought Iíd just given birth to a healthy baby, but now the doctors were telling me that I didnít. But I could never imagine my little daughter Zoe ending up like the creature in the photograph. It was too horrific to even imagine. ( dixon )
