FARGO, ND (WDAZ-TV) - It's a tale of two very special babies and the moms who love them.

The moms have taken to social media to share their very personal struggles, and help others going through the same thing.

The Facebook page is called ‘Clara and Cutler.’ It's dedicated to two babies who have Down syndrome and became friends at first sight.

While some of the photos look staged, these moms say most of them aren't; Clara and Cutler just have a natural bond.

Recently, both babies were diagnosed with pneumonia and RSV. The moms spoke with WDAZ Thursday from Sanford Children's in Fargo, and said they hope to encourage other parents.

Lana Beaton and Amy Moreland: “We feel really positive. We feel like the more we can do to let people know how awesome these kids are, and how strong they are.”

“We're not going to sugarcoat it. We're going to tell you that things are hard, and things right now it's sucks, be honest, but at the end of the day they're just amazing and we're blessed to have them and be their moms.”
