So we'll catch up with those conjoined twins born in Texas last year both back home now reunited after some miracle surgery. ABC's juju Chang has their story of hope and faith. Reporter: A child's smile, a reminder to be thankful for the good in the world. I feel really good. You know, it's been a long year.

A little over a year ago the Mata's twins were born conjoined from the rib cage down to their pelvis with internal organs fused together. I want to give them a shot at a Normal life. Reporter: At 10 months old a team of 12 surgeons at Texas children's hospital worked to separate the girls during a grueling 26-hour operation.

Hi, gorgeous. Reporter: And now the family of five is thankful to be out of the hospital and reunited again under the same roof. Dada.
