They also expressed that the concerns their parents had over gender reassignment had nothing to do with their identity but rather the potential abuse they may suffer from society.

Their mother had noticed their gender dysphoria at an early age and stated, "I don't even remember thinking of them as boys. To me, they were always girls. In my heart, I always knew they were girls, and that they were suffering. I'm upset with myself for never giving them a doll or a dress, for not making them happier when they were girls."

Their doctor Dr. Jose C Martins who did the surgeries one day apart was of the view that this was the only reported case of twin surgeries.
