Meet Ruthie and Verena Cady, a pair of five-year-olds as bubbly and cute as any kids you know. They are conjoined twins, and they share a single, fragile heart. But they lack nothing in courage or good cheer—going to school, making friends, ringing all the neighbors’ bells to show off their new, custom-made tricycle. “There are people who say, ‘Oh, how tragic,’ ” says Marlene Cady, the twins’ mother. “I always tell these people that the only tragedy is their interpretation of the girls’ situation, because obviously Ruthie and Verena are happy kids.”

Ruthie and Verena have taught their mother, their father and their sister a great deal about what love and family are really about. They can teach us all something.
