They were born facing the most incredible obstacles, but triplets Madeline, Macey and Mackenzie have achieved more in the past 10 years than most people do in a lifetime.
Their parents had drug problems and didn't see a doctor during the pregnancy. Macey and Mackenzie were born conjoined, attached at the pelvis with a shared, third leg and entwined intestines. Unable to care for their daughters, all three were placed in foster care. And, as their case worker Linda Kontis confesses: "Nobody wanted these babies."
Until Darla and Jeff Garrison came along.
The couple were already parents to three sons, but had always wanted daughters. So when they got the call from Linda in December 2002 asking if they would consider fostering the girls, they put aside their fears and said yes.
