Most parents would agree that bringing a child into the world is not only one of life’s greatest blessings, it’s also one of its greatest responsibilities.

But while all parents do try to protect their children and make sure they grow up safe and sound, there are some things that we can’t prevent from happening.

However, there are thing that happen that no one could even predict.

So when Molly and Robbie’s parents were given the news that their daughters had spastic paraplegia-47, they were devastated.

This rare disease only affects 11 children in the entire world — Molly and Robbie are the only two kids in the entire United States who have to live with this genetic disorder. They’re just 3 years old, but they have a long and winding journey ahead.

There was nothing that their families could have done to predict this fate or prevent this diagnosis. So both sets of parents felt alone and heartbroken.

But their daughters’ shared diagnosis ended up bringing them together through an online support group.

Although their little girls will have to struggle with this disorder for the rest of their lives, they now have a strong sense of family around them, and even more support than they could have imagined.

Fortunately, these beautiful little girls will get to grow up together and never have to feel alone.
