Woman Gives Birth To Her Twin Sister's Baby For Beautiful Reason
This is a sisterly bond unlike any I've ever seen. Dawn Ardolino Policastro and Allison Ardolino Dinkelacker are twins and share an incredible connection.
Though they are identical they have very different personalities. “Allison is shyer, I am more outgoing,” Dawn said. “We have always said I have been her spokesperson. I do most of the talking for both of us.” It is Dawn's outgoing personlity that made Allison's dreams come true.
When Allison was 30 weeks pregnant in 2009 she was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. She went on to have a healthy, happy baby named Dylan. However, the cancer prevented her from having any other children. Allison wanted a second baby more than anything but knew she couldn't... and that's where Dawn came in. She immediately told doctors she would carry her sister's baby.
Without any research Dawn became a gestational carrier. There isn't anything these sisters wouldn't do for each other. This experience has only made them closer. Dawn gave birth to a healthy baby boy at 8:31 p.m. on Aug. 5. Hudson William Dinkelacker weighed 8 pounds, 13 ounces and was 20.5 inches long.
“How can we begin to thank you for the tremendous generosity and sacrifice you have so willingly bestowed these last few months?” Allison wrote. “You have given us not just the fulfillment of a wish we’ve had for the last six years, but a whole new life, and a family of four we thought we’d never have.”
Now this is a moment for the scrapbook!
