Yesterday, all over the country, news outlets were buzzing about a couple of the tiniest babies on record for overcoming the odds and thriving despite astronomically low birth weights. At the time of their births, Madeline and Rumaisa (no relation) weighed in at only 9.9 ounces and 9.2 ounces respectively. Now, they’re healthy individuals, though smaller than other children and adults their age.
