Giving birth to a child is a special day for any mom, but for two sisters in the Upstate that day was even more meaningful.
Sisters Chelsea Snyder and Nicole Craig both gave birth Tuesday afternoon at Bon Secours St. Francis Eastside. Liam Wade and Thea Vivan Craig were born just two hours apart.
The sisters say – even though their due dates were a week apart, they never imagined this day would come.
“The whole pregnancy we joked about oh, what if they’re born on the same day? Not thinking it would ever actually happened,” Craig said.
“It’s something that you just can’t plan,” Snyder explained. “It just happened the way it was supposed to, I guess”
Wednesday morning, the babies and moms were resting across the hall from each other.
The moms say the cousins will be celebrating birthdays together for years to come.
“My prayer is that they would be close and really good friends,” said Craig.
