Wow Erin, from looking at the posts in your guestbook it is a shame that some folks desire to use the space for nonsense and have no better way to spend their time. I am sorry, but I mailed an order for a book when I saw the address and instructions for mailing a check, a couple of days before you raised the prices. Trust we will still receive our book.

Hello. I ordered a copy of the special collector's edition book signed by the girls. I noticed that the price has gone up. That is great news because the funds all go to the girls but I was wondering if I am still going to get the collector's edition even though I bought it before the price went up. Thanks so much.

I am SOOOO glad to hear you are better and enjoying the girl's birthday. 21 children! What a party! And it's good to hear about Courtney, too. It must be tough on her sometimes her little sisters being in pain and her mother worried. I'd like to order the book but not having a credit card I think it won't be possible for us "overseas". I hope many people from the US will order it, though.

We have been so excited about the book coming out, but now are disappointed that the only way to get one is to pre-order and give a credit card number on line and not only that when giving the credit card number one has to give the three digit code on the back of the card. This is something that is not a good thing to do. Will there be any other way in the future to purchase a signed copy of your wonderful book?

You may have a lawsuit there. It could so easily have been more serious! I hope nothing else of that nature happens and the hospital reviews its training and procedures. Poor Maliyah seems to have enough health problems for three lifetimes.

How horrifying that the hospital prescribed 5 mg instead of .5!! I would think that the pharmacy would have caught that right away instead of AFTER 2 doses were given! I hope you've communicated your concern very clearly to those in charge so that their staff is trained to be more careful - both those writing prescriptions and those filling them. My brother recently had a bad reaction (but not nearly as bad as Maliyah's) when his doctor wrote "rapid release" instead of "extended release" on a strong prescription. These things happen too often and must be taken very seriously. Thank God Maliyah is okay now. I've followed your website regularly since the girls had their separation surgery and I feel like I know all of you. You remain in my prayers.

What gets me about your latest story (besides feeling very sorry for Maliyah of course, having to go through yet another health emergency) was that the ambulance people allowed Courtney to ride with her, undoubtedly making her feel more comfortable. Do you know how many ambulance people would not allow that? Thank goodness she is feeling better now. Grandma Barbara from Connecticut

I found out about Kendra and Malaya (not sure if i spelled it right!) and I am AMAZED at how they learned to live together and risked there lives to be seperated. I am only 11 years old and i was learning about conjoined twins in my class. Kendra and Malaya are great people and god bless them. I hope they will grow up to be wonderfull women. If i was conjoined, i would think 'Why me, why do i have to be conjoined' but kendra and malaya thought positve. I also now tommarow is there 7th birthday so please tell them i said "HAPPY BIRTHDAY KENDRA AND MALAYA!" You took a big risk and it was succsful so i hope everyone in your family will live great lives.

On Feb 7, Caroline from France wrote a post in French. I assume the Herrins don't know French and since I was born in Montreal, I do speak French so I will translate it for you. She wrote- Bonjour Vous etes une famille incroyable Vous avez de superbes enfants et 2 petites filles tres courageuses je vous souhaite plein de bonheur et de bonne sante Bisous de France Caroline. Translation- Hello You are an incredible family. You have great kids and 2 very courageous little girls. I wish you lots of luck and good health. Love and Kisses from France, Caroline

Dear Herrins.....I can't imagine being in your shoes. I admire your strength, your love, your faith, and endurance thru all the trials, all the peaks and valleys your family goes thru on a daily basis. I worry about Maliyah and Kendra, and Courtney and the boys too, when they are sick or have emergencies such as this recent one Maliyah had, as if they were my own. And I rejoice too when things are going well and all are happy and healthy. Thank you so much for sharing your family with us. God bless you all, and know that you are in my prayers, as you are in those of all who read your blog on a regular basis. Again, thank you. I know as a mother your time for writing in the blog is already limited, but with all the additional needs that Kendra and Maliyah have, it must be even more overwhelming to find the time, but your commitment to sharing your life with those of us who empathise and have compassion for your family, is very much appreciated, and I assure you, it is not taken for granted. You are to be commended, and I applaud you. ~Sandy

I'm so glad to hear that you're feeling better, Maliyah, and that both of you are getting your "big girl" teeth! Don't forget to brush after meals and snacks! Have fun with your new legs - I'll bet you'll both be running soon! Erin, all six of your kids (including Alli!) are priceless (yes, the girls are very silly, God bless them!!!) - in spite of it all, you must be one of the luckiest Moms in the whole world!! (And Jake is SUCH a hunk, too!!) I wish you all the best!!! (P.S. - "When Hearts Conjoin" is a better title!)

Happy birthday to the twins! I hope Maliyah keeps getting better and the girls don't need more surgeries or major treatment for a long time. I think anyone would be feeling weak after all the major surgeries she's had in the last three years, poor little thing. I keep praying for you and your kids and I'll be looking forward to seeing your book.

I watch TLC a lot and will watch for the show. I am so glad to hear that Maliah is feeling better and silly. Glad Kendra is also feeling better . How wonderful that the legs are being donated what a financial relief that has to be. These girls are amazing as are their parents.

Erin, Thank You for your update today, your updates are always exciting and appreciated. Sounds like you and the girls were having such a good time together and sometimes it is fun to just be "silly". Please remind us when the time comes for your family to be on TLC we sure don't want to miss it. Our prayers continue for Maliyah of course. Trust both girls will be able to do well with their helper legs also. Friends who care in Illinois Earl and Cindy Felix

Erin, Yes, pictures would be nice, however your first priority must be to your family and it seems to me that Maliyah and the others need you right now more than we need pictures. Please don't worry about that. We know you will do what is best and will send pictures when your time is right to do that. Our prayers for your family continue. We are thankful that Kendra is doing so well and we trust that in His time, Maliyah will be totally well again also. God Bless the Herrin family. We are looking forward to the book.

Dear Erin, How fun it was this morning to get such an upbeat update from you. We will be excited to get the book whenever you are able to finish it, don't worry about the timing, we are so thankful that everyone is feeling better. I can always remember the girls birthday because it is the same day as mine. I don't get quite as excited as they do because I am much older, however I am very thankful for each one the Lord gives me still. God Bless the Herrin family, and thank you for keeping us all updated. Friends who care in Illinois, Earl and Cindy Felix

1st time posting - Have been reading since the beginning - I feel like I know your family personally. Can you clarify the removal of the kidney? I think several of us are confused. Is this the kidney you gave her or did she have one? I thought there was only one kidney between the girls. Can't wait for the book. God Bless your Family - you are a pillar of strength and an example to all of us -

I am so glad M is feeling much better and pray Kendra gets over her virus soon. I am so glad Allie was not seriously injured and is back safe. I know how awlful it is to have your dog missing and to know she was injured . My little dog was missing 4 weeks he ran out the front door and got himself lost. We now have invisible fencing in the house so he won't go near the front door.

This is to Allie from our little dog Grisu. Hi, Allie. You were lucky to get back to your people. And I know what it's like at the vet's. I broke my jaw three weeks ago and now have to wear a brace that's almost as big as my head. Do be careful with cars ("my" car was a big dog but I'm, sure you would never hurt a little chihuahua) and do take good care of your people. They need someone to lick their hands and faces when they are crying and a good dog always beats a hot-watter bottle. Give all the Herrins my love, Grisu

Hi Guys, Am so glad to hear that Maliyah is feeling good enough to go to school. I was very upset that she was in terrible pain for so long. I know pain, kidney stones are the worst except something that goes on and on, like Maliyah was going through. Glad also that the boys are doing better. What a relief that Allie found her way home and is on the mend. Hi Courtney! When you get the chance, which I understand may be awhile, I am looking forward to seeing photo's of how much all the kids have grown, and you have my interest up saying the girls look taller now after their back surgeries. I appreciate the way you somehow find time to give us updates on how everyone is doing, I don't know how you can think of us too with all you have to consume your days. With Love to you all including your extended family, Karen

Much admiration for you all when you just keep pressing on and do what has to be done. We have a boxer-lab mix who runs off when given the chance and I am always afraid of the cars. I cried when I heard about Allie and how it must have felt when she came home. Just another member of the family who needs to be cared for now.

What a relief to read that Allie made it home okay! You have all been through so much, and now you have two miracle children and a miracle dog to go along with them (although all children are miracles, of course). It would have been so traumatic for the children if Allie didn't come home. I'm thrilled that Maliyah is doing so much better, and Allie is home safe and sound. What blessings.

Erin, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the update today. Praise the Lord that Maliyah is doing so much better. We are so sorry to hear that Kendra has now been sick again, and we trust that she is better. It is now time for everyone to be great for a time all together. So very thankful also, that Allie came back and escaped with treatable injuries. Sorry that you had to go through surgery with her also. I would say that everyone at your place, including the dog has had their turn, so it is over now, and the rest of 2009 should be a piece of cake. Lets trust that will be the case. I know I, and many others are looking forward to the book. God Bless the Herrin Family. Friends who care in ILlinois, Earl and Cindy Felix

I'm sooo glad they got that non functioning kidney out of Maliyah! I bet it was just poisoning her system. Hopefully she will stay on the mend now and start feeling MUCH better with her bowel fixed and that kidney and the bladder stones gone. I remember when our kids were your kids ages, and in school, they were always bringing home stomach bugs and stuff and sharing it with the rest of the family. It will get better when they get older. Hang in there Erin!! God bless you all!

I've been reading your blog since before your kids had their separation surgery and I've been constantly amazed by how much you're dealing with and how well you seem to be able to handle it. I'm sure it can't be easy, but I hope you get to take some time for yourself too. Those kids will do all the better if their mom has some time to recharge her batteries. I've prayed for your daughters and I'll continue to do so. I hope Maliyah recovers soon and is no longer in pain. Best wishes.

I'm glad to hear things are looking up for you. I am curious as to what is the latest on the book "Conjoined at the Heart". I can't wait to read it and want to make sure I get a copy as soon as it is released. I know you are busy, but if you could give us a quick update on when it's scheduled to come out that would be great. Thanks

I want you to know that I will be praying for you. I just recently "met" your girls on your website. My sister has two medically fagile children and she is constantly in and out of the hospital with them. I can't image how exhausting metally, physically, and emotionally being a caretaker of these special gifts from God can be. My love goes out to you and your family. Beth

Erin, I'm glad to hear you are all (for the most part) doing well. When you said Maliyah had a kidney removed-- I'm sure you meant a kidney stone? Otherwise, I hope you, Jake, Courtney, Kendra, Maliyah, Justin, Austin, and Alli are all doing well! Love.

Hi ... Just wanted to tell you that I saw your sweet little family at the tire store on Saturday. They got so excited to see the lady with the dogs and asked her lots of questions. Ask them if they remember Godzilla and Tornado. It was so fun to watch them interact with the dogs (I thought they were puppies at first but the lady told me they were 3 and 6 years old! what a shock). Glad the tire people got your tire changed quickly and they were able to see the movie ... they seemed really excited about going.

OMG! Does this mean that Maliyah is once again without a kidney? Was this perhaps a rudimentary kidney that she had but was in the way??? My prayers are with you all and I hope to see all the kids grow up to be the terrific people you are teaching them to be! I really hope Maliyah's medical problems will be better fast, and also Kendra's. Good for her, tootling about on the crutches.

Dear Erin, Thank you so much for the update today. So glad to hear that Maliyah is on her way to recovery, but sorry to hear she has had to go through so much again. You do not mean she had a kidney removed do you?? Was it a kidney stone? I pray this is the answer to all of your 2009 health problems now and that the Herrin family will now have a year of health and blessings. We will look forward to the book also.

Thanks for the update, glad to hear everyone is doing better, though I was sad to hear Maliyah needed more surgery, but if it will make her feel better in the long run, than you have to do what you have to do. They did a native nephrectomy, correct? I work for a renal transplant program, and know that even in our adult patients, the surgeons sometimes take out their non-functioning kidneys to make room for the donor kidney. It would be sad to find out that she lost her new kidney.

I will most certainly pray for Maliyah and that the Lord will heal her and give her a healthly and strong body and I will also pray for the rest of the family as well. May the Lord Richly Bless You Always, Laura

It is a tough period for you, Erin... 5 young children and 2 still under 5! Then, the 2 girls have needed a lot of extra time over the past few years and there has been the mental stress of the operations and the subsequent convalescences. Even if just one child has a cold, high temperature or cough, it throws the whole household out! You have been a brilliant mother.. The 2 boys will be 4 mid year, and they will demand less of your time(just a little less!!). You will end up with some time for yourself, later on! They will be all grown up so soon. Take a deep breath, and carry on, and know that there are a lot of us who admire your courage and hard work and wish all the family just better luck and hope that 2009 will be a less stressful year.

Thank you for the update; I've been thinking about Maliyah and checking your update page just about every day since you last wrote. Since the ibuprofen is helping, the problem is likely what you found on webMD - perhaps related to inflammation. How frustrating that the doctors haven't been able to figure it out themselves! I'll continue to pray for Maliyah; I'm looking forward to when she's over all of her hurdles and feeling good - every day.

The stomach flu is SO awful! We got the stomach flu on an 800 mile trip home from the SLC Olympics... it was SO not fun then.. BUT, it is the part of the trip the kids remember most, and we totally laugh about it now. One day, hopefully, you'll look back and laugh about this barfy Christmas...! Meanwhile, your sweet Maliyah is in our prayers.

Also we are so incredibly sorry that precious Maliyah is having so many problems. We are thankful that there may be some answers, but sorry it has to be surgery again. Please know she and the rest of you are in our prayers daily. We are also looking forward to the book when it is complete. Friends who care in Illinois, Earl and Cindy Felix

Have they tried neurontin for her pain It could be neurogenic. My Amber had scoli surgery and ended up having neurogenic pain after it and the only relief she got was neurontin. UGH! It has to be so hard with so many ill in your house. I will continue to pray for M. Poor sweet little girl she sure has her share. I am so glad you are such good parents.

I follow your blog regularly. I don't usually reply but I was reading your description of your daughter's pain and it made me think of the time I had a "wet tap" durring an epidural. The doctor accidentally poked a small hole in my spine while giving an epidural and had to redo the epidural in a different spot. The poke let just a small amount of spinal fluid leak out and I had a "spinal headache" for two weeks. I don't know if I explained that very well but basically, because a small amount of spinal fluid (a little less than a drop) had leaked out of my back the pressure in my spine was off and I was in very bad pain for two weeks until the whole was patched and the fluid returned to normal. The symptoms I had sound the same as your daughter's. As long as I was laying down I was fine and there was no pain but the instant I tried to sit or stand the pain was almost unbearable. I felt like my head would explode, I couldn't turn my neck from side to side, and my back was very sore and achy like I had the flu. After they patched the whole that was leaking the fluid I started to return to normal. I know you have had several doctors look at her and I'm sure they checked for spinal fluid leakage, but I am almost positive that she is leaking just a tiny amount of fluid and that is what is causing her pain. I will pray that you will find the doctor that can diagnose her as soon as possible so that her suffering can be relieved. May God continue to bless you and your family and may you have a wonderful Christmas.

It's 23rd December and I've just caught up with your updates - so sorry to hear you have all been poorly!! We've had 2 different bugs going round our house too which have knocked me, my husband and our 2 girls (age 6 and 2) about!! However, you deserve so much credit for coping the way you do!! I've been a wreck and you have so much more to deal with it makes me feel so guilty!! I can't believe you're actually planning a New Year party too! You really are a saint!! Any way - I sincerely hope that you are all feeling SO much better for Christmas, and on behalf of myself and my family, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2009!!! Best wishes to you all x x x x

Please know that you and your entire family continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Erin and Jake -- I so admire how you handle the inevitable stressed of your own and family illnesses and seeming setbacks such as Maliyah's yet-to-be diagnosed pain. I know you look to the Lord for strength, encouragement, and wisdom. Keep on looking to Jesus. Take time as a couple to be alone on a regular basis and get in touch with each other. It sounds like you're already doing this, and I would encourage you to keep doing this. Time alone together will help you strengthen your bond and help empower you to persevere. You have been an encouragement to me and I believe many others, to persevere in the face of our own trials and difficulties; and your strength helps give us perspective on our own, often much milder, trials.

Dear Herrin-Family, we wish you all the very best christmas possible and a glorious new year. I really hope the doctors will be able to find out what's wrong with Maliyah. So it possibly is something to do with the implanted rod. That might mean more surgery. Poor mite! We will keep her and all of you specially in our prayers, that's a promise. Take good care (as God will). Angela Roemelt and family

Have they put her on Neurontin or antispasmotic for neurogenic pain or muscle spasms. It is something that happens after scoli surgery. My oldest had major pain issues after her rods and the younger one had neurogenic pain after hers. Hope you get it figured out soon and have a very Merry Christmas and all of you will be well.

I have been sitting here for hours reading about the girls and watched the video from the surgery seperation. I can't began to tell you what I am feeling I do know my heart goes out to the girls and the whole family, You are blessed is all I can say, Thank God the girls survived and are doing as well as they are. With each update I could hardly wait to rread the next one and I started at the beginning, it was almost like being there. The girls are so beautiful. When I first saw their faces all I could think of was what beautiful angels they are. all yor children are precious. a lot of people could take lessons in love and caring for each other by just reading the entries on this site. I am on AOL and now from day to day I will be reading your updates on the girls. I want to say Thank you for sharing and allowing me to be a part of your lives, This is very special to me, I cant have children my dogs are my children plus I am a widow for the last 10 years and a retired Nurse. all of you have gone thru so much many people would have caved in by now yet you hang in there, That is a miracle in itself. God Bless all of you and I will keep praying for you and the chldren. Geraldine Cooper ( Jerri)

I am so worried about Maliyah. U had said she has been sick for 9 weeks. How come doctors can't figure out what is wrong. So far they have been able to solve every problem. I am scared to open this website now. Don't know what you will say. I am really praying for her. They are both so cute. U r an angel. Don't know where you get the energy to do so much. U always have them wear same outfits. Courtney is so beautiful. She is a princess. I have been following your story since the separation surgery. God bless your family.

Here is Erin's post for those that aren't able to see it on the updates page. December 16, 2008 0534 PM I didn't realize that it had been such a long time that I hadn't updated. I have been REALLY sick!! The kids and Jake had a great holiday and I was sick in bed for most of it. We have had a lot of snow here and the kids have been out playing. Maliyah has been pretty sick for about 9 weeks now. We have taken her to doctor, after doctor and no one can tell us what is going on with her. She has missed a lot of school, but she is keeping up with her work. I am helping her during the day. All of the other kids are doing really well. I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving. I need to go and lay down. I will update more when I am feeling better.

Erin, I am so sorry that you're having such a hard time. And Maliyah, too. One of my daughters is also out of school for two weeks now with mysterious stomach-aches no doctor can lay a name on. I do wish Maliyah will get better or at least the doctors will find out what's wrong with her. You are all so brave. Nobody deserves a happy christmas more than you!

I am sorry to hear that Maliyah isn't doing so well. I will start including her in our prayers and will pray that God will show you what is wrong. I'm sure right now it is hard to stay upbeat and you are really worried. Whenever i have that feeling i just remember who loves me(obviously God) and that he knows every little detail about me and my children. So i choose not to worry but to thank Him for being there for me and my family. Have a great Christmas!

I look EVERY day at lunch break and I am concerned with that things are OK.. but still I would never complain. Your family has so much going on and bigger things to take care of then worrying about a blog... if you don't want to buy a book because the blog wasn't updated...then it is your loss. The family blog is used to update family and us.. not to help sell a book! wow

I reread it a few times before I noticed the past date (I breathed a sigh of relief for you, too...!!)... ha ha... it made my day- I hope it brings a smile to yours!!!

Hi wonderful Herrins, You haven't updated for a while so my prayer for you all, especially at this special time of year is that God will keep you surrounded by his love. He has already raised your coping mechanisms to at least 10 times what most of us moaners would struggle to cope with! I pray that you will not have anything extra to cope with at this family time. Bless Courtney, Kendra, Maliyah, Austin and Justin and continue shaping them into caring, sharing, loving young people. Allow Erin and Jake a few moments to stand back and admire the beautiful family they have created. Let them bring to you their worries and concerns for the future and enable them to enjoy a family Christmas. Amen.

I don't want to complain but there are many people who come to your site regularly to check out how the girls are doing. People who have followed your story from the beginning and pray for you and your family. These same people will be the ones purchasing your book when it when it comes out to support your fund for the girls. We all worry that something is wrong when the updates are so far apart. I understand you may not have time to update the site but it would be nice then if you would designate someone else to do it for you. Seems to me you like the limelight (TV shows etc and have time to ask everyone to watch) but by times forget about the people that are your true base of support. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and praying that everything is ok.

I'm sure that you hear this all of the time but I am a mother and watching how much unconditional love you and your husband have for your children is such a blessing. You are such a strong person, I cried just looking at pictures of them smiling thinking about just how innocent they are, and how happy they are to have so much love in their life. I would like to say thank you to you and your husband for letting the world see how a family with unconditional love can rise above anything. (With a little help from god.) I will continue to pray for your children and you for peace, blessings, patience, and understanding. God Bless you, you are the definition of MOTHER.

I have enjoyed your web site and I want to say thank you for allowing your family to be shared with me and all who know of your family. I just returned from Boston where my 8 year old grandson (DJ) is fighting stage four, Neuroblastoma cancer. My oldest daughter (Kelly) just had her fifth child (Shannon) last month. Shannon is my tenth grandchild. My wife and I each flew out to their home to help with the new baby and our grandson. My wife went for three weeks and then a few days after she came home, I flew out for three weeks to help. I am a retired, handicap, special education teacher. I had to retire in my mid 50s because of my poor health. When a person or family has to deal with poor health, there is nothing harder in this world to deal with. But with Heavenly Father's help, we just move on and count our many blessing. My family and I have more blessing than a person can count and I am sure that your family has so many blessing that people who haven't deal with hardships will never know. Once again, thank you for sharing your girls and family with the world. I have added your family to my personal prayer list and will keep your family in my prayers each day. Families are forever - Bless you and yours. James A. vanBuskirk, retired.

Hello Herrins! Just sending a note of best wishes and prayers to all of you - we continue to be so incredibly amazed at the strength of your family! Please send our best belated birthday wishes to Courtney! She continues to inspire our family with her strength and support of her siblings & parents. What a beautiful, strong, intelligent and all around wonderful girl she is! I remember turning 9 and how much older than 8 that seems; the difference between 8 & 9 is huge! We all wish her the best in everything; especially dance. It can be hard to be the strong one sometimes so we also wish her strength and happiness when times get a bit overwhelming. Our prayers to all of you during your daily journey & especially to Kendra, Maliyah and Justin as they continue to recover. Our heartfelt wishes to all of you and your extended families for a very Merry Christmas! Blessings - Sandy & family

Gosh, I wish you'd have somebody update us. We hear that things are going badly and then days and days and even weeks go by with no word. We don't know if things are better or what. We'd appreciate hearing when things get better, at least. If you'd just tell us when things are better. You don't know us, but we know you, and we care and worry. I know you don't have time to update it every day, but maybe you have a family member who can at least post a minimal update.

I know you can do it, Erin and Jake. you guys are super parents. You always seem to do the best for your kids and are so selfsacrifising. If every parent was like you, kids would be brought up right and we wouldnt have to worry about things like drugs or bombings in schools. Courtny and Austin, thank you for not being sick and giving your parents another thing to worry about. Be good little helpers, I guess Courtny your not so little. Stay strong Herrin Family. Good times are comming.

HSP is Henoch-Schonlein Purpura, pronounced hen awk shern line purr purr ah. It causes the blood vessels in your skin to get inflamed. This inflammation is called vasculitis. The exact cause of HSP is unknown. Doctors think HSP occurs when a person's immune system doesn't fight an infection like it's supposed to. It might be triggered by bacterial or viral infections, medicines, insect bites, vaccinations or exposure to chemicals or cold weather. You may catch an infection that caused someone's immune system to respond with HSP, but HSP itself isn't contagious. Doctors don't know how to prevent HSP yet.

I know you are very busy, but please update us on sweet Justin. I am trying hard to be patient but t has been 11 days since the last update and I am anxoius to 'see' that he is ok. Also can you elaborate a little as to what HSP is? I know you said it is an auto-Immune disease, but does HSP stand for? Thank you for letting the public into your lives and keeping us abreast on the comings and goings of your wonderful family.

I have really enjoyed "meeting" your family. I read the RD article and then googled the girls name to find this web site. You have a beautiful family. I can see why you are so proud of each of them. I think Courtney must be the best big sis in the whole world. She has a lot to deal with just being 9, much less having 4 younger sibs, 2 of which require so much from mom&dad and drs. I hope your family is well, and the girls are getting excited about their "robot legs". I look forward to hearing about it on your update page.

Erin - I know you and your family are very busy, however, I for one would like to hear how Justin is doing with the HSP. I really hope he's doing better. Thoughts also for Kendra and Maliyah on their post-op happenings and school. And lets not forget precious Courtney and Austin. News on what's going on with you and Jake too! (Smile) I know you all have much to be thankful for this year and I hope you are all doing well. God bless your entire family.

Just thought I would add that my (now very fit, healthy, energetic 21y.o.) son had a very bad case of H.S.P. as an 8y.o. with the fears for his kidneys, the swelling all over his little body, the rash, etc., etc...... And he fully recovered. It sounded horrible, was not pleasant, but he was a normal healthy kid in next to no time. Good luck with all your wonderful family.

It sounds like Justin has Henoch-Schonlein purpura. This is a type of vasculitis (inflammation of the vessels), typically *affecting* veins more severely than arteries. HSP is somewhat common in young children. (The proper spelling of Schonlein includes two dots over the 'o.') HSP has no direct *affect* on platelets. A very, very small percentage of people with HSP develop permanent organ damage. You may feel better after discussing HSP in greater detail with your pediatrician. I do not usually recommend searching the web for medical information, because most sites are incomplete, inaccurate, and\or are supported by individuals or groups with their own best interests at heart. I am very sorry Justin is ill, and hope he begins feeling better soon. I am also happy to hear the rest of the family is doing well. Take care, Liz, a pediatrician in California, who continues to be impressed with the many strengths and successes your family has achieved

They're incredibly special (not that you need me to tell you!) and the way you have all handled life's challenges is truly exemplary. Our family sends you all our love!

HSP sounds awful on the web, hope it's not that bad or I stumbled upon another disease by the same name. Get well, soon, Justin and don't fret about preschool. There'S still a lot of school in stock for you. And Happy Birthday to Courtney though it is late in coming!!! We keep praying and lighting candles and catching leaves. According to a family tradition every leaf caught in falling from a tree in autumn is a wish granted.

Hello Herrin gang! I just finished watching the Oprah segment with K&M. Wow! What a tear-jerker. So many wonderful kids who have been through more in their short little lives than most adults. How amazing they all are. Hoping K&M are recovering from their surgeries. Poor mom! You just have one "sick" kid after another! Hope Justin feels better soon. Happy Birthday to you Courtney. Give Ali a big sloppy kiss from my dog, Dakota! Have a great week!

Seems like parents just go from one trial to another and there are never times to stop worrying about one thing or another.

Your family has been such an inspiration to me. The love that you all have for each other and the family teamwork is phenominal. Please, please keep us updated well into the future. I have grown to 'know' your family as an extended part of my own. I love seeing and reading how they are each doing. Thank you again for letting me a part of you life. Give each of your children an extra hug tonight and let them know just how special they each are.

I would absolutely LOVE to meet you one day, because I feel like I know you and I care about you all like you are our own family. That must have been a wonderful show to have been in the audience at also, and Erin you even got to meet Celine Dion. Hope you all had a wonderful time, tho it must have been hectic too.

Hi~You don't know me, but we are "loosely" related. Your cousin, Michael Hornibrook, out in OR is married to Heather, who is my sister's neice. You may know Connie Stott who used to be Connie Saunders, who used to be Connie Carnes! Yep Heather is my neice! I'm sure that so many people who have written, have said about all that can be said. So I don't think I'm able to come up with any "unique and new" or "supercool" lines or phrases, so I'll skip tryin', and just say how happy I am that everything has gone so well so far, and although I try hard to pretend to be a hard veteran and a 58 yr old "grump" ... I cried all the way thru the videos (and you had better NOT TELL ANYONE or ELSE!!!) Jes kiddin' ;-] Really ... I'll deny every word of it!!! You've got things well in hand, but I'm still gonna throw in my prayers with all of yours! Take care of yourselves, and who knows ... we all just might get to meet someday!?!

Praise the Lord for answered prayer and a better report. We are so happy that the girls are doing better, and you sure deserve a nice get away for your anniversary. A lot has happened in those 10 years, but what a Blessed couple you are! Isn't tomorrow the Oprah Show that you appear on??? We are looking forward to watching that? If you could remind everyone in a note today, that would be wonderful. God Bless the Herrin Family, Sincerely, Earl and Cindy Felix, friends who care in Illinois

Dear Erin, Glad to hear the girls are beginning to recover. I just wanted to tell you how touched I am each time I read your entries. Regardless of what you are going through at the time, you always manage to say something positive and hopeful. Also, you do an amazing job of remembering your other children and celebrating them. Your sensitivity, dedication and love for your family is inspiring. Remember to take care of yourself! Mary

What a blessing to hear Kendra and Maliyah are doing better and moving around. As I'm sure you know, getting up and moving around helps the healing process. I'm not sure I could be as tough as you are, Erin - what strength and courage you have. Happy up-coming 10 year anniversary Erin and Jake!! And hope you celebrate many more together!

Hi, sorry in advance for my english, I'm Estelle from France. I was watching a documentary about conjoined twins on tv and I happened to see your daughters before their surgery (when you decided it was time to separate them). I discovered your website a few minutes ago and I just wanted to thank you for sharing all these pics with us and update us about your kids. Your two girls are a true miracle and I can only wish you the best for the future.

Hello, Herrins I hope all is going better and the girls will soon be able to go to dance. There is a wonderful video you may want to share with them on Godtube.com. It is called amazing dance. The male dancer only has one leg and uses a crutch and the female only has one arm. It is very graceful and sensual. I think it will be inspiring for the girls and dance instructor.

I am so glad they are doing well and Jake and Erin are so special, there aren't alot of parents that would have handled your circumstances as well as you have. I think you are the best, you have a beautiful family!! I will continue to check on the girls progress. Blessings to all the Herrin bunch!! Love Deanna

I cannot imagine a world without two amazing, strong willed, pure spirited, and adorable girls like Kendra and Maliyah. They truly are special and I admire you for all the effort you put forth to be good parents to them and help them have a normal life. Anyone who has had ANY contact with them knows they touch EVERY SINGLE individual soul they encounter, and gifts like that should never be torn down. Neither should you be criticized for being human. VERY VERY VERY few people could pull off what you two do as parents for 5 minutes, and you do it every day with such intense love. The world should stand in awe at your amazing family and the good that you spread every day throughout this world that is in such desperate need of people like you and your wonderful kids. I've never met a more caring older sister than Courtney and she will be richly blessed for how strong and amazing she is. Thank you for blessing us and for being an inspiration to thousands.

Your girls have challenges yet they meet them with faith.It is a harsh world in which we live but there is so much good to be had no matter what our circumstances. I too have birth defects but I have had a wonderful life.It is a blessing to know God's plan and that our adversities are temporary.It does not make it easier.Please do not let the cruelties of others effect your amazing ability to parent these beautiful children. You are incredible.

You and your family amaze me. You have FIVE children, two of which are dealing with some pretty serious medical issues....and yet you still find time to go to the gym! It is so great though, both physically and mentally isn't it? I get cranky when I miss a day at the gym. Also, how incredibly selfless of you to be on cloud 9 because your daughter feels so much better. You people are my heroes!

I know I already posted an entry today, but I thought I better post another one. With all that you are going through, I know you don't want to hear about another person's problems or issues .. but this one of mine is an exception. I had a biopsy done for probable breast cancer and praise the lord!!! It was benign!! Our God is SOOO awesome! Such healing powers came down from the heaven's and graced me with many more years to spend with my husband and three loving daughters. HALLELUJAH!! May you all feel the same power I have felt today!

I have a suggestion for the next time Kendra has a slow-healing wound. You could try a product called Xeroform. It is a sticky yellow padding that is medicated to help burns and wounds heal. You can google it for more info. Hope this helps!

I am so glad to hear that Maliyah is doing better! I've heard about your girls a couple months ago in the August edition of Reader's Digest. I didn't even know that there was such a thing as conjoined twins! I have a niece that is about the same age as your girls. I won't write much more. Your girls are so brave to go through that many surgeries. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Oh, and some ways to take their minds off their pain - talk about Halloween! Give them ideas about how they could dress up or what candy you can give kids that come to your door. God Bless, Sally

Dear Erin, Proud of you for your weight loss = you go girl!! So sorry to hear about Kendra - there is a book, written by Dr. Dobson called Parenting Isn't for Cowards, and how true that is. What do parents do who do not pray and trust in the Lord to help them through the tough times. Please know that our prayers for you and your precious family continue. Remember "Joy Comes in the Morning" So thankful that Maliyah is doing better. Sincerely, Earl and Cindy Felix, friends in Illinois who truly care.

I have 5 grown children and how I remember when I had to be up all night with a sick one and that was probably just an earache in my case. My heart goes out to your family as you have been through so much with these little girls. I pray for their pain to cease and for a quick recovery. I just wish I could help you in some way. If we were friends, I would spend the night with the girls if that would help to relieve you some! I am looking forward to hearing good news about their recovery soon.

Is there a way we can all express our feelings to your insurance company that these are extremly special circumstances and you should not bear the added burden of anything less than quick and medically expedient treatment for the girls of the highest caliber available? This disturbs me very much. With everything all of you have and are going through, NO problems from your insurance should be part of your worries. Where is the humanity above the dollar amount? These are critically unusual circumstances and should have special consideration by any insurance company worth their salt! They should be your comfort and not a worry.

Oh, I'm so happy they're home!!! That was so fast - thanks, God!!! I'll pray for their pain to ease, but how wonderful that they're on the mend and that they'll soon be getting their "robot legs"!! I hope Maliyah's off of oxygen soon - I'm sure she will be! She's had a lot of little setbacks all along, poor dear - she's a real little warrior, and so is Kendra! I'm as proud of them - and of you, Jake, and the other kids - as if we were related! I wish you all, all the best! God bless!!!

Thanks for updating! Glad to hear the girls are home. I guess the pain is to be expected with that much of a radical change in their backs. But it's never fun or easy. Thanks for keeping the site updated and I'm sure you'll post pictures when you can so we can all see the difference in their posture. This is the step before getting their "robot" legs too, isn't it? So exciting!

So happy to know the girls are home. I had surgery for scoliosis years ago and am amazed to hear the difference it has made for M&K. My heart goes out to them, and I certainly am including them in my prayers. I am also including you and your family and friends for all you have gone through as well.

When you mentioned recently Erin how worried you were about Maliyah's recovery, I noted that you said she always has a harder time after surgery than Kendra and took that to mean she will end up fine once again. Of course you worry all the time about all this, but their track record is your comfort, that and knowing that your biggest risk was having the seperation surgery done to begin with... and seeing the results of that courageous decision [you and Jake.] I'm sorry for all the pain the girls have to go through with the many surgeries, as always they are such wonderful troopers. To Courtney, I'm sorry this is all so hard on you, of course you miss your mom and dad terribly when they have to spend so much time at the hospital - on top of your own concern for your beloved sisters. You have handled all of this turmoil with such mature understanding and patience, you amaze me. I want you to know how much I care about you and admire you and feel bad for all the pain you endure through all these trials demanded of you also. I see how hard you try, and am ever amazed at how well you handle it all. You are still young enough yourself to be excused if you felt more resentful over what you have have lost in all this yet you continually set such a wonderful example for us. I feel so proud of you, I really do. No wonder your parents are so extremely proud of you for who you are and the big heart you have inside. I think of you often and try to be more like you. I am the big sister and the oldest in my family too, and I really do try to be more like you. I send you all my love and am glad that this time the results of another surgery are so visible for all of you to rejoice in! With Love, Karen

God bless both the girls and the rest of your lovely family. The pain will get better and the end result will be yet another miracle! You are all such a strong family and can get through anything. I hope and pray Kendra and Maliyah's pain subsides quickly so they can take less and less pain medication as each day passes. God bless the Herrin family!

Praise the Lord the girls are home! Since their surgery I have checked your web page several times daily waiting to hear from them. I just said a prayer for their recovery and for their pain to subside. They are "special" to me. In fact, my daughter refers to them as my "other grandchildren." Will continue to pray for them and your entire family. Thanks for the updates.

God Bless you, your family and most importantly those little girls - 36 and 38 surgeries in their little lives...just unbelieveable. I'm so happy to read they have this one over and are home. Even in pain it must just help make them feel a little bit better to at least be home. Thoughts and prayers coming your way for a speedy recovery. I will look forward to seeing some new photos of them sitting up tall and proud when they are feeling better.

The girls are absolutely amazing and have such wonderful parents. Just been catching up on your posts and when I read about what Courtney had written it made me cry. She is so precious, they are all such wonderful children. My boy girl twins have just turned 1 and I feel very blessed to have been given them, my 6 year old boy is such a big help. if they turn out as good as your children I will be very happy! Looking forward to the book release! Lots of love being sent to the Herrin household. Ashley Tilmouth and family

Hey Courtney, I just wanted to let you know that I admire you so much. My sisters are two years younger than me and they are twins too. I just hope that if anything would happen to my sisters like what yours have gone through that I would be as strong, helpful, and as good a big sister as you are.

I've become really sick and don't want to risk infecting them, so please give them a hug for me and let them know I miss them and I'm thinking about them! Hang in there you guys!

They are both such strong little girls. I wish I had just a fraction of their strenght. Just think soon they will want to go shopping for all new clothes. Growing taller deserves a special shopping trip. Take care.

I've been thinking about your family and your girls all week. I hope they have successful surgeries today. I also wanted to say that I've read every single post you've put in the 'Updates' sections, and I think Courtney is the the bravest, most mature little girl. For some reason I though she was about ten or eleven, but I found out she is 8, going on 9. For her to be flourishing and to truly love her little sisters and brothers and to not resent them is incredible. Cherish her. Also, I am still AMAZED at how you do all of this. From reading your posts, you can spend a single day in the hospital with your girls, going to your daughter's recital, and taking care of sick boys. All within 24 hours. You're superwoman, and your kids are lucky to have you.

I'll keep the girls in my prayers, the surgery will go just fine. There are a lot of members of the church that keep your family in their prayers. I wish a lot of strength to you, Erin and Jake, and all the best to the whole family!

I have periodically checked on your kids since I heard about their surgery - wonderful that they are doing well! I read about M being afraid of the tooth fairy - wanted to tell you that when I was a kid we put the tooth in a glass of water on the back of the toilet before bed instead of under a pillow - thought maybe you could try this to ease her fears

We will certainly keep you in our prayers! God has brought you so far. The girls will get through this just fine....and the benefits down the road will be wonderful for them! That is so funny about Maliyah and the tooth fairy! One of our daughter's was the same way at that age. We had her leave a note for the tooth fairy and her tooth in the dining room in an envelope, on the table, and she always found a letter from the tooth fairy the next day, and some money. Our other daughter was fine with putting her tooth under her pillow. God bless you all and please keep us updated! Richard and Teresa

I am Kendra and Maliyah's instructor at their school. These girls inspire me every day. They are always happy and positive. When other kids in the class are whining, they just smile and say positive things. They have the best sense of humor and I enjoy every second I get to spend with them. They have mobs of students following them around to "help them" but the girls are always politely reminding them that they are capable of doing everything themselves. I'm loving getting to know them and I am so excited for the school year! They've blessed my life.

Hi, Erin-I was wondering...are your girls facing scoliosis surgery this Thursday? I am 4 months out from mine. Got rods and screws-the whole deal. It completely reshaped my torso. It is nice to look like everyone else. It's not the easiest thing to go through, but it makes such a difference that it was worth the discomfort. I will be praying for your girls, that their surgeons are able to achieve maximum correction with minimal discomfort and rapid recoveries for both. God bless you guys!

The Bible says that "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1 verse 7. God is not the author of fear - the devil is. God is the author of FAITH - so rebuke the devil and put your trust in the Lord for the upcoming operations. God loves these little girls more than you do. So Praise the Lord and put your trust in Him and pray that He will guide the surgeions hands to perform what has to be done. The Bible also says not to be anxious or worry about anything. I will be praying for quick successful operations and speedy recoveries. God Bless You All. Love Phyllis

I follow you family with such delight. I love hearing about everyone's progress. Erin and Jake, you are doing such a fabulous job teaching your children about life and letting each one of them be themselves. As I have told you in the past, I have a daughter who has had two kidney transplants. Each day is a miracle for her as she was only suppose to live to be 5 and she just celebrated her 32nd birthday. Never did I think I would watch her grow to be an adult, have her own home and be a successful professional. BUT, here I am. As far as eating and food absorption, it comes with time. Their little bodies just don't know when and how to accept the trauma and tribulations that they make! Kellie has had her issues with eating, in fact at one time she went almost 6 months with nothing by mouth. Now she is one of the lucky ones in the world that gets to worry about her weight. Appitites do reappear! Just continue as you do, keep your faith in God above and know that you have so many people in your "court". Much love to all of you. Kim

And Hurray! for Kendra and the tooth. Do you have a tooth-fairy, too? My children always put their loast teeth under their pillow and found am little toy there in the morning. And I'm keeping the teeth. Love to all the Herrins, Angela Roemelt

Hello Herrin family, I continue to pray for you and wish you all the best as your family faces each new day! I also wanted to make you aware of another lovely family out there in the blog world that could use all the prayers they can get. Stephanie and Christian Nielson are a young Mormon family with 4 small children. Back in August, "Nie" and Christian were critically injured in a small plane crash and their 4 babies are now being cared for by Stephanie's sister Courtney and Courtney's husband--as well as another sister named Lucy. Courtney (AND Stephanie when she is well) both keep lovely blogs. Courtney continues to provide both updates and inspiration on what's most important in this life....faith, family and other priceless gifts via her blog www.blog.cjanerun.com I'm sure they'd appreciate any and all prayers! Thank you, Lori

Two Choices What would you do? THis is such a beautiful story... I soo wish we all could say yes.. that is what we would have done.. What I really wish is that every young student also heard this story to help start teaching our children while they still have passion and not much fear of the world or others. Adults too....I just know if we start with our kids.. they grow up to be good.. loving.. helpful adults. You and your family live very close to this story and have probably had your own version. We sure do love you Herrin Family.. and thank-you for sharing your life with us... You are all wonderful blessings. Thank-you, Lynn

God Bless those boys who put Shay first, I know how much it means for young boys to win a game and so their hearts were truly good and big just to let Shay play. I did wonder at the beginning of the story if the original premise was true. At the end it is hard to determine who got more out of their sacrifice - Shay or the teams themselves. I think maybe it was even. The deep satisfaction of knowing how it feels to put another first will stay with them long after winning a game would have, even if Shay had swung and struck out. Having gone to my young nephews games for years, it is even a surprise that all the parents in the stands were supportive too - although now that I think of it the obnoxious ones are in the minority - they just make the most noise. The father... just asking if his son could play had hope in his heart that they might say yes... good for him too. He showed faith that the goodness might be there in the first place and is the one who gave those boys the chance to show it. Thank-you for sharing this story. I will not soon forget it. With Love, Karen

I like the photo of you daughter. Not every day i can see kids or adults that are conjoined together. After seeing this i feel the need to read and look at more images of conjoined twin. And what causes it. Nothing will be able to take them appart. Finding a boyfriends that are conjoined would be good i'd say

What a beautiful story, I follow yourstory since day one and review the site for updates, your story about Shay is amazing and made me cry a lot my son is autistic, ,not severe but at the end he is not the typical child and I know what it means having a child with disabilities, I love the way your family is, the kids, your always positive attitude...... I know everything is going to be OK, the life of these kids are totally different when they have such dedicated family......

I have heard that story about the little boy and the baseball game before and it always makes me cry. Kids are naturally really good and it is sadly the outside forces that they come in contact with that can alter that natural goodness. Thank you for sharing that story!

Hi Erin, I've been following your family's story for a few years now, and I've been to your website several times to get updates. I just read the Reader's Digest article. My favorite part was the girls' comments about living apart which the article says helped you make up your mind to have the separation surgery. The RD article led me to re-visit your website today. I really enjoyed reading the updates on your website, especially the part about telling Justin not to pee on Austin! I was laughing out loud. I also got a kick out of you telling off the folks who aren't being nice. Keep up the good work; we'll be praying for you. Jen, Tom, Daphne & Justin Soboleski

Hi, Herrins, I got a lot of people praying for you and I'm glad it seems to work. Poor little Maliyah, though. I hope you'll find a way to feed her without causing her pain and trouble. Is this stomach trouble due to medication or allergies or to cause unknown?

Aw! I'm so happy for Maliyah that she's off steroids now! I'm sure it was terribly hard for her to look different from her sister - and not all children are kind! I wish her, and Kendra, all the happiness in the world to make up for the difficult days they've had! I can't wait to read the book!! Love to you all!!! God bless!!!

Glad to hear the steroids are discontinued. That may help. Sorry about the tummy troubles but the tube will be such a blessing and her health may get better with better nutrition. Tough decision. I know I have special girls and both have buttons. I felt like a failure because I could not get enough in them. It was hard to get meds in at times. Now we just slip them in the button.

Great to hear about normal activities, whatever that means for a family with five children. It must be a blessed relief. My mom had a feeding tube inserted similar to the button since sometimes she couldn't eat. In her case, at times she had no tube feedings and ate a regular diet. Other times the tube supplemented her meals. Other times that was her only food. In some ways it is easier than the tube Maliyah had before, and has less problems. And, I understood it was reversible if she could be depended on to eat enough. So maybe this will be one more step to improved health. Love & prayers from your NC friend.

So glad the girls are feeling better and have started school. You must be so proud of them and their achievements. Are they in the same school as Courtney now? And how great that the boys have so quickly settled at pre-school - your children have obviously inherited your positive will and determination. Take care of yourselves and each other. God bless you all. Lots of love x x x x x x

Dear Erin, Thank you for your update today, sure was good to hear from you and we are so thankful that things are going much better for everyone. If Maliyah gets the button, will that mean that she will only eat things like Pediasure or other liquid diets that are wholly good? We had a little boy in our classroom who was fed in that way. He did very well, but ate nothing by mouth. I trust everyone stays well and very healthy now until the surgeries in October. As always our prayers for your beautiful family will continue. Friends who care in Illinois, Earl and Cindy Felix

Hi Erin, you may remember me from twinstuff. My twins were born a few weeks after Austin and Justin and we chatted a few times. I know you've been constantly on a rollercoaster of emotions and your strength has been an inspiration. I read the readers digest article and I wanted to take an opportunity to post a comment. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Your family has endured from the strength you and Jake live on a daily basis and it is beautiful. Best wishes for the strength to keep going.

I know first hand how much trials your family has gone through and still goes through each day. You and your family are living testaments to what God do!!! I pray that He will continue to give you the strength to get through each day. Only He knows the future and His plan is perfect. Your girls have touched lives by their journey. May they continue to grow and be strong. I pray that all 7 of you be blessed by blessing the world with your story. Sincerely, Kymbra

Sending strength, better health and some rest to you all at this difficult time. Being sick is never any fun, especially in the hospital. The only good part is the nurses who are mostly very nice and sensitive, treating you like family. They make you feel safe. Remind the girls that when they can go to school, soon I hope, IT WILL BE their first day of school! School is fun and I am hoping they can go soon. The girls are real troopers through all this and deserve big gold medals, they have the Olympic Spirit and the whole country is so very proud of them! With Love, Karen

I'm sooo sorry to hear that both the girls are in the hospital as I know it has to be very frustrating not only for you but for them also. It's sad that they also missed their first day of school as well. I've been thinking of the girls and your family and will continue to do so and wish for a speedy recovery for them so they can get back home with you all.

I am so sorry to hear that both girls were in the hospital on their first day of school. that just breaks me heart. but hopefully they will get better soon and will be able to start school. that is great the Courtney loves school, she is such a cute little girl. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers daily and that I know heavenly father is watching over K & M and your whole family. he has something very special in store for those 2 little girls and made them very strong. even though it is very hard sometimes, I know that he would not hand your family anything that you could not handle.. so with that being said please stay strong and pray daily it will get better real soon. I hope you have a great day and please send my love to the girls.

Erin Hang in there...it will get better. I am sure this is a very trying time but keep your strong faith, it always gets you through. I read the Buckles Website about the origin of Conjoined Twins Day! What an awesome day. I love the way the date was chosen. How cool! I am always amazed at how much you and the Buckles family really reach out to other families to provide support and friendship with everything you each have on your own plate. Your families share a bond few others can begin to understand. I think it is wonderful. Bless you tonight, and hope you are able to rest some too! GET WELL GIRLS!! Hugs from Houston Lori & family

I just wanted to tell you how much I admire your entire family. The way you have stuck together and helped each other is so wonderful. In this day and age so many people just don't care and families are drifting apart it seems. That is why when I read about your incredible family, I just had to tell you how much you are admired for your love for each other, your courage and determinations not to let anything or anyone deterr what you thought was best to do for your little girls. God be with you always.

Just read the R.D. article, but I've seen a report of the girls progress on one of the tv news shows a while back, if I remember right. Such little miracles! And such courageous parents! I saw a photo (towards the bottom of the photo gallery) - I think the boys had celebrated their 2nd birthday. There's a boxer curled up with one of the girls on her bed. Do you still have the boxer? We're on our third boxer - they're just so great with children. Take care - you're all in my prayers.

Dear Jake, Erin and family, We have just read the Readers Digest article, looked at the pictures and watched the video, with thankfulness, joy and tears. We were deeply moved, even though we have followed your story and journey from the very beginning. We are so anxious for your book to come out. Just to watch Maliyah ride her big wheel up the drive with her one leg with more fortitude than lost of people have to do things with out complaint, and I am sure Kendra does the exact same. May the Lord richly bless your family today. Thank you for sharing your wonderful story with us. Remember we are holding your family up in prayer as the girls face their up coming surgeries later this month. Friends who care in Illinois Earl and Cindy Felix

What a beautiful story on the Readers Digest website! Tears are streaming down my face--tears of joy! I especially loved hearing about the girls e-mails back and forth; so sweet and it definatly shows off their unique personality. Happy two year seperation anniversary, Maliyah and Kendra!!! I am amazed at how much you both have overcome in just a short few years. Reading news stories and updates on your site are an exciting part of my day-- thank you so much for sharing your BEAUTIFUL family with the whole world. Words do not do justice for how much it means to me to still be updated on the girls, two years after seperation. Thanks for helping to do your small part in making this world a better place, by sharing your wonderful story of love, happiness, and hope for all! Lots of love now and always.

I have three kids, a girl and two boys, the ages ranging from ten to five. Last night during a conversation I mentioned the word conjoined twins and they wanted to know more about it. They knew identical twins but not conjoined twins. That is how I happened on your family, while surfing on conjoined twins. Your story is overwhelming. It is also very touching. I can imagine that the day to day work load and the strain on you. But the smile you can put on your children's face as a parent, the care,strength and protection you are able to afford the children as a parent make all the trouble worthwhile. It has been inspirational to see your family. All the very best in this world to the children and also especially to mom and dad.

Hello Herrin-Family, yesterday I saw the video of your cute twins Kendra and Maliyah on youtube. I was really touched of your fate, but you all are doing very well! All your kids, Erin and Jake, are so adorable! I read that you are very exhausted, what I can totally understand, and I would really love to help you with the kids and play with them, but I guess this wont work cause I am from Germany. All I can do is to wish all of you good luck, that everyone is healthy and happy and that Kendra and Maliyah dont have to endure so many surgeries. And all the best to Courtney, too, who is a great big sister! Keep on helping your mommy! Lots of love, Vicky P.S. I love the pictures of Kendra and Maliyah, after their separation I think, when they both give a thumbs up! They were, are so brave and strong!

I saw the RD article and realized I hadn't checked up on your website for a long time. Has it really been two years? Part of what has me distracted is my little girl. She's two and a half and was diagnosed a Type I diabetic when she was 15 months old. Updating here reminded me again that so many others have problems much worse than any I will ever have. We only have one child to worry about, not five! (I think my biggest problem isn't Cadence's health, but just getting through each day of being a mother. It was reassuring to read my aunt's letter to her missionary son and the rest of the family about how when my sister and I would come over as toddlers to join her oldest she would feel so overwhelmed. Now if several grandchildren are dropped for the day it's just a "piece of cookie!" Someday I'll feel that way too, I hope.) Anyway, my prayers are with you and I'm so glad that things on the whole are going well. My favorite quote is, "Your problem isn't your problem; your problem is your attitude towards your problem." You guys personify that well!

Hi Erin, It looks like on the Reader's Digest website they only show the current months articles, as well as articles from previous months, so I don't think the story will show up on the website until next month. Also, just want to wish K&M and your entire family congratulations on their upcoming two-year anniversary, time really does go by so fast. I hope the girls are healing enough so they'll be ready for their back surgeries later on this month. Take Care,

Erin I am sorry to here you aren't feeling so well. I know taking care of all the children, the house, the dog, etc...the last thing you take care of is you. BE SURE TO TAKE CARE OF YOU! I have four children and we don't have to do have the things you do on a daily basis, and I am exhausted. I have no idea how you do it....your strength is amazing. School Supplies are crazy! I bought them through our school, my youngest starts kindergarten this year, so my school supply bill $270 for four kids, which doesn't include buying a back pack or lunch kits!! School can't get here soon enough! OH...a neat thing were are doing next week. Three of my kids have birthdays between July 31 and Aug 21. So on Aug. 8th, the children are having a Luau Dance Party at our neighborhood recreation center. Instead of gifts, we are collecting books which we will be taking to our local Ronald McDonald House. My kids are so excited to be doing this for such a good cause. HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE SUMMER ERIN! Enjoy your little men, because they will be grown up all too soon once school starts. Hugs from Houston Lori & family

I have been a closet reader of your family for a very long time and found myself checking a couple of times a day the last two weeks. I needed a Herrin Family fix. I think about all of you often and I after reading your latest post I finally am posting a note to let you know how much I admire your dedication and determination to see everything through to the end. You are an amazing family and I believe that if I ran into you on the street I would think we were best friends. Keep pushing through you have everyone on your side. All my love and prayers

Could you put the name of the article in your updates? Thanks

Dear Erin, Wow what a summer. Hopefully Maliyah's infections will clear up Kendra's wound will close and your appointments for yourself will turn out just fine. I am glad Courtney has so many friends,but I am thankful that she is aware that not every house is safe to visit! I know that you want to discourage fear, but...Austin and Justin will both be ready for preschool ,but cherish your memories of these hectic days.Until the next update, I send my love. Ms. Shyla

Geocaching is so much fun!!! We do that with our 3 girls (9, 6, &2). They love searching for it and then getting a treasure and putting a treasure in for someone else to find. Geochaches are all over the world. There is a website that you can log on to so that you can find geocaches where ever you are. We like the one's in the Allegheny National Forest around here. The kids get a good hike and they see nature and have a ball. It is an inexpensive activity that brings the entire family together for some fun. Anyone of any age can go. There are easy ones, and really hard ones. Some you have to walk a long ways to find and some you can drive to. Good luck with geocaching! Would love to hear more of your geocaching stories. If you would like anymore information on the websites or any tips from us, please email me and let me know! mardajones@gmail.com Have a great rest of the summer! Martha from Edinboro, PA

Dear Herrin's, I have been following your site since the girls were separated. I love reading the updates and hearing how they are doing. What a great family you are. Such good examples. Keep it up! When my children were young I took empty tin cans of all sizes and opened both sides. I bought inexpensive golf clubs and balls (dollar store) and we made our own golf course in the house. I put contact paper around the cans and gave each a number. My children would spend hours playing golf.

My mom had a rod put in her back about 30 years ago. Before that her doctors told her she would be in a wheelchair in a few years and may die in 10. Since she had it put in she has been going non stop. She is 62 now and still up and running. It was the best decision she could have made. I pray it works out that well for your girls. They are so brave and beautiful. My son who is 6 wants them to come play. He said he could help them have fun. One thing we have had a lot of fun with this summer is paper rockets. We have a air powered launcher and my kids spend all day making rockets and launching them.

Hi, I have been reading about your family since before your girls had their separation surgery. You have a beautiful family. I wanted to comment on your keyboard. You can pop off the keys with a flat tip screwdriver and then wash the keys with soap and wipe the rest with a damp cloth. However I wouldn't take off the keys that have springs (I think) like the enter key, space key etc. On mine those were all the bigger keys. You should still be able to get them cleaned up a bit. Take a digital picture off the keyboad first so that you can put all the keys in the right place. That is how I have done it and it worked well. In fact I need to do it again. Or you could buy a new keyboard. LOL All the best, Silvia

What about Christmas in July. Of course, do go all out like you do at Christmas. Let the kids decorate a small tree with summer items, make presents for each other, wrap them up and put them under the tree. You can stretch this over a week and plan something different each day. Decorate the tree one day. Make gifts one day. If you have an left over fireworks, get your husband to pop them while the kids watch from inside. Plan a big day to end the festivities. We like to have watermelon. Be sure and let the kids string popcorn for the christmas tree.

Hello Erin! I've heard very much about your family, espacially about the girls. I always thought they are a little miracle and I hope that they would lead a normal life soon. I hope that Kendra's wound will heal quickly and that she can go swimming again. In Germany, we've got summer holidays now and it's very hot, so not being able to go swimming is like a penalty. Best wishes, Laura (If not everything is written all right, excuse me, I'm german and just learning English at school! xD)

I saw an article in a magazine recently that had a great idea for kids. Hide stuffed animals around the house, turn all the lights off, and go around with a flashlight on a "safari" trying to find all the animals. Another idea was to print out pictures of family and friends (and pets) and glue them to a magnetic sheet of some sort and cut them out (full body shots work best). Then you can put them on the fridge to play with. A great way to tell kids about family members or people they don't get to see often.

Hi Erin, Wow, what exciting news for you and the girls!! I can imagine how nervous you must feel, but can also imagine all the excitement you & K&M are feeling as well!! This summer has turned out to be hard for the girls in terms of the surgeries, but in the long term it will be wonderful for your entire family, and such an improvement in the quality of life for K&M. Like you have said, it's what you have been working towards all along, so it is such good news that it will finally happen. I am so happy for the girls and trust everything will go as planned. Just thinking about the future and all the new things the girls will be able to do with their helper legs must be so exciting for you all!! Just want to let you know how happy I am for your family, this is certainly great news!! Take Care,

Your story touched me and my seven year old. We wish you the best as the years progress. You have a beautiful family. A s I worked in my rose garden this past Saturday and despite my efforts to protect my hands with good gardening gloves, a thorn got through. While nursing my wound, I thought of the following quote... 'My God, I have never thanked you for my thorns! I have thanked you a thousand times for my roses, but never once for my thorns. Teach me the glory of the cross I bear, teach me the value of my thorns. Show me that I have climbed to you by the path of pain. Show me that my tears have made my rainbow.' ~George mathseon~ Even though I try and surround my family with good things, just as I chose sturdy gloves, bad things still happen sometimes. But through it all we still have the roses, the fragrant blooms that enhance our lives, inspire us to be better people. Those blooms are often found in the eyes of our children. They are truely blessings from Heaven. Special spirits sent to us to raise with the knowledge that we will be together after this life. May the Lord bless you and your family.

Erin, Thanks for the amazing update. Both girls will be so happy to get their robot legs and rods. I hope all your kids are having a great summer and you and Jake as well but did I miss something Were the girls May Surgeries only prepping them for August?

Dear Herrin Family, Such wonderful news!! My hubby is a Shriner Clown and having Shriners Hospital be part of the team for your children's health is a great decision. I am a "Daughter of the Nile" - the ladies part of Shriners. My children are here today because of genetic research done by Shriners Hospital. They only do good work!! Thanks for keeping us posted. Your family is in my prayers. Bye Beverley

I just thought I'd drop a line to say that I have been following your girls since the separation and I love reading the updates. I appreciate your faith and hard work in doing what is best for all your kids. I'm excited to hear that the girls can get prosthetic legs! I will pray that the back surgery goes well.

My cousin just had surgery, so my aunt moved in temporarily to watch the kids for a couple weeks. When we saw her on the 4th, she said the hit of the stay was their daily recipe. The kids are 13 and 5, and they would bring ideas they saw in books, magazines, tv, or dishes my aunt thought of. Then they would go online to find a simple way to make the dish or something similar, and the three of them would make it in the afternoon before Dad got home from work. She said the kids had so much fun trying out new ingredients, all or a portion of dinner for the night was made, and the time flew by. As I said, they were simple recipes, so they tried to use basics from the house and minimize extra purchases or else use one of the "extras" from a previous recipe. Not everything they chose was a hit, but it taught the kids lessons about things looking better on TV than when made at home and to keep trying even if you don't get the stellar results from your efforts. Hope you've found lots of fun stuff to do this summer and good luck to the girls with their surgeries and new legs.

I am so happy to hear about the blessings coming your way. Your names are always in the Reno Temple! I cannot imagine the anticipation you must be feeling as more and more milestones are accomplished! I am so happy for you. You hold a special place in my heart. My orthopedic doctor in Salt Lake is Dr. Harold K. Dunn. He now specializes in spines. He is a miracle worker. He has been my physician for over 30 years now. I would highly recommend contacting his office. Just google his name for the info.

How about buying large sheets or rolls of white paper (like you can use for picnic tables) and have the kids take turns tracing each other. When they finish with that they can all decorate with crayons their only body. You also mentioned the care center your Dad had been at, most of these patients would love to have a visit from your family. The kids could take some board games, cards and play with them or just sit and talk. the girls could make cookies to take also. You could also have a scavenger hunt in your house or yard. Good Luck.

Thanks for updating. I check in periodically. Your little family is very special. It is so good for me to read your posts because it helps me to realize that I need to work harder to make our little family better. And, it helps me to realize that I have it pretty good and I am so blessed.--As you are, just in other ways. So thank you so much! A little idea for you. Take brown paper sacks and let you kids decorate them with pens or crayons or anything to make a building. They can create a whole little city if they want. All you need to do is make sure they know that the sack will need to be opened up and then turned upside down so the open park is on the ground. (so they need to color the bags when they are upside down) You can even try cutting little doors and such. Polly's and hot wheels can fit in too. It worked with my kids one day for a couple hours! Good luck! You can do it with a little prayer!

I just watched your video and am still wiping the tears from my eyes. What beautiful, strong girls you have. I have a four year old daughter and a 1yr old son, and as a parent I of course saw my own children in their bright little faces. I cannot even begin to imagine what it was like for you to watch them being wheeled into surgery, I don't know if my heart could have continued beating. Having survived that I believe you and your children can survive just about anything.

Hi. I found your site when googling conjoined twins because my cousin is currently pregnant with conjoined twins. But I'm really writing to respond to your request for ideas for fun summer activities. Some of the things I did when my kids were little. 1. drape a sheet over the dining room table and use it as a tent. Lay inside and listen to music or read a story. This is a really good idea when it is just too hot to do anything active. 2. Line up small actions figures and,or little people toys along a ledge or stair outside. Give the kids spray bottles filled with water or water guns and have them squirt the figures and knock them over with the water. God bless you all.

1. get some plain t- shirts and fabric paints and let the kids design their own wearable artwork 2. get a tape recorder and let the kids record themselves singing their own songs. it's always fun to hear your own voice on tape 3. if the kids are not used to riding the bus a ride around town can be fun. my mom did it with us when we were little. you can get on and off at the stop closest to you home, even if you don't have anywhere you want to go 4. see if you can arrange a tour of a local farm, police station, fire station, amimal slelter, etc 5. if you have a babysitter, have some special one on one time with you and each child, to do the child's favorie activity 6. be a tourist in your own town and visit local museums and attractions hope these suggestions help!!

Summer - Try the local library, they usually have morning activities for children, like movie or storie time, all for free. Also, try having a campout in the backyard, setup a tent the kids will love it, but you will have the comforts of home steps away if they is a problem

Growing a window garden is a great way to keep them busy. They will love it when they can pick the first cherry tomato. The libary in our town is always having something going on, like story hour, pet parades etc. Going to the nursing homes just to say Hi to someone that has no family will make everyone happy and they will get wore out with all the hugs and kisses.

Erin, Rosie O'Donnell put out a GREAT craft book for parents and kids.. it really has lots of fun things to do with stuff you probably already have around the house. Cooking is always fun with kids too... messy.. but fun. Build a tent in the living or family room with blankets etc. and play camping out. For indoor fun.. for us crafts of many different types are a blast.. cooking.. making a safari camping expedition in the house too. You can hide some things... give em clues and do an in house treasure hunt.. If you need more ideeas.. just ask.. at 50 I am still a huge kid myself. Oh yeah... and container gardening.. you know.. cut a little milk carton.. plant easy things to grow.. and set in the window sill.. kids always love watching things grow too. (smile) God bless you all... you are such a blessing to me.

I love your website and regularly check in during my lunch break at work. Your family is an inspriation. Regarding activities for the children the following might work for the girls although the boys might be a bit young 1 Match-box treasure hunt - eg give everyone an empty matchbox and see how many different things can be collected or 2 see how many objects begining with a different letter of the alphabet can be collected 3 skits are fun and if you can film them children love to see them played back as well 4 Scrapbooking or journalling with pictures Have fun With love from Helen x

Hello from Norway! My suggestions for activities would be to make get well cards, thank you notes and other greeting cards for friends you have met at the hospital. You can use inexpensive cardstock and cut out motifs from gift wrap, flower catalogues and magazines. Inexpensive silk flowers taken apart and glued on with glue dots or foam tape looks great too. Another fun thing we have done at birthday parties is to rig a video camera and let the children make up their own commercials for whichever product they choose. This is always a winner, the guests do not want to leave the house when its time to go home. thank you for sharing your life with us all. You are very inspiring!

Make puzzles from pictures out of old magazines, just remember do not cut through peoples faces. Have am tea party with all of the dolls and stuffed animals. Like preschool - have a color for the week and a letter for the day. Daily find items for the dolor of the week and items with the letter of the day. Learn new words that go with the color and the letter. Have a shoe paraide. Line up everyones shoes through the house. Allowing everyone to see the different sizes - small to extra large, colors, shapes, and styles. Allowing kids to try on shoes other than their own. Don't forget to put all the shoes away at the end of the paraide with each child helping. Have a fun summer.

How about dress up clothes for a summer activity? The girls could manage hats and scarfs, tiaras, vests, plastic jewelry. sunglasses, whatever. For the boys (and girls!) you can get fireman hats, hardhats, doctor kits. My daughter and son played with this stuff for hours. Every old halloween costume and garage sale dance recital outfit I would find went in this bin of clothes and stuff. My kids are now teenagers, the girls still pull the stuff out once in a while. Even long scraps of fabric are great belts and scarves. Thank you for sharing your wonderful family with all of us.

You were wanting ideas for summer. On Regis & Kelly today they had some really neat craft ideas. One is to have the kids make a "fairy house" by decorating a small cardboard box with twigs, pine cones, evergreens, etc. Another was to sew a long sleeve of material, insert a wire (maybe this isn't a good idea),add stuffing, finish sewing (your job), and add some eyes. Voila'--a snake! Five snakes would add some more excitement to the household. You have to admit that. I've been following news of your family since the girls separation. Keep up the good work and I hope these ideas help.

Suggestons for summer play at home. 1)Fill small buckets with water, give out big paint brushes and let the kids "paint" the driveway, house wall, each other etc. It's just water and evaporates quidckly on a hot day. 2)Decorate bikes, scooters, walkers etc with crepe paper, ribbons, flags, paper chains etc. Use masking tape because it comes off easier that Scotch tape. For the 4th have a parade. 3)Get a big carboard box from an appliance delivery and make a house. Cut windows. Use crayons to draw furniture on the inside, flower boxes, etc. on the outside. We made "door" on the open end by taping a beach towel across the top. Good luck!

Hi guys, hope all is well with you. Here is a fun activity I used to do with my kids. You can do it in an empty swimming pool or empty bath tub. Mix cornstarch and cold water till its nice and thick... similar to syrup or a little thicker. Have the kids put on their swimsuits and make sure they have some spoons and stuff. As you squeeze a handful of the mix it gets hard and you can hold on to it.. but open your hand and it melts away. Kids have a ball with it and clean up is a breeze all it takes is a water hose to hose them off if they are outside or a shower if they are inside. The getting clean is half the fun on those hot days! Use a full box of cornstarch and you may even have some leftover for another day. Enjoy and if I think of anything else, I'll let you know. Keep up the good work! You guys are an awesome family.

Here are a couple ideas- Have a movie night. Close the blinds, make up tickets, and get some popcorn and a fun drink like apple juice that everyone can 'buy'. Give the kids a couple pictures and have a fun scrapbooking day. Even though the pages can sometimes be crazy-looking, it is fun to have little kids make their own pages. Once a week, taking turns have one child choose a country to learn about, a new dish to try, and a little service project. Make a chart so no one gets confused or lost. Make pictures with dry macaroni, beans, spaghetti, etc. and give them to neighbors, friends, etc. Hope this might help! Your family is the best!

Hi Erin, for fun ideas for your kids try taking a "trip" around the world! Have your kids pick destinations theyd love to "see" then google the places- learn a new word in that language, put together costumes of the native land (could even be from the dress up box Im sure you have), and make food from that country (or even food that looks like it could be from that country) great way to learn about it and let the creative juices flow- Speak in the accent etc.. Also do Not discount the wonder of a new box! call your local appliance store and ask for a couple of their largest boxes- let your kids paint their new "rocket" or "car" or drive through restaraunt! Call your local library- see if they have a book mobile that you might be eligible for(sometimes they make exceptions if you have special needs) Another fun thing is to gather all those missing socks we all have and make a sock puppet theater- glue guns sharpie markers anything crafty could be great!

Dear Herrin Family, I have been following the updates on this site probably 1 time a week since the girls had surgery to be seperated. I am amazed at those two. At first my heart was of pity and sadness for your family. I thought how aweful this could be to happen to you. But every day I read the updates the more and more excited I get for your family. The charactor building events. The humbleness of the parents The growing faithfulness in God. Now, I admire you. I don't feel pity or sadness. I anvy and admire your faith and strength. You are all amazing. I just want you to know I pray for you daily. I am proud of how you handle the negative, whether it is something with the kids or just a nastly little email. I hope that I should never have a trial as yours, but if I do I hope I have if even an ounce of the strength, faith and integrity your family has. I hope this is all coming out the way I am intending it. My point is YOU INSPIRE ME!!!! Judi

I was thinking, have you tried home made play dough, easy recipes on the net, we used to let each kid decide their own color with food dye and scent it with vanilla, etc. I bet the boys would like it, too. Also my kids spend hours with this project where they would grate colored chalk with a cheese grater and use it to color table salt and then do "sand art" layers in jars from baby food or something. For some reason it appeals to kids of all different ages and it is very inexpensive....

Okay...things to do inexpensively for the summer! I know how hard that can be! ( my youngest, and a wild child had to be on no activity once for 8 weeks!!!) How about good old fashioned water...bring it inside to the kitchen, even a small pool and let them float things in it. Let them all guess what might sink and what might float and make a chart. How about making jello? pudding? or frozen popsicles? How about break and bake cookies and decorating them? How about putting on your own play with a video camera? Courtney could write the play (maybe based on one of her favorite books?...a good summer school plan!) and then give roles to each of the kids. Then she could direct and film it. Could be one of those great memories!!! How about camping in the house? Blankets over chairs, stories, and sleeping bags... I'll keep thinking. but good luck! We are praying for your beautiful family!

Oh, I thought of something else!! Have Courtney create a play and they can all rehearse and perform in front of mom & dad. My brother and I created a "band" when we were little. We made cardboard intrustments...memorized a song and performed for my mom & dad. We even did a "love" song for their anniversary. So many great suggestions your getting...you might to need to save some for next summer!!

It's so great hearing that everyone at the Herrin family is doing well!! I know Kendra will be back to her old self soon enough!! As for fun summer things to do...do you have a sandbox? Have a sandcastle building contest... Water balloon days...nothing like a good old water balloon fight - my kids love it (they're 5 and 3)!! We play tic tac toe on our sidewalk with sidewalk chalk...AND...did I mention it was GIANT sized? Probably 5'x5'...then we hose it down and play again when it dries off!! If you're thinking INSIDE... how about making a batch or two of jello and having a jello sculpting contest...don't drop it on the floor and you can eat when you're all done!! Have an ICE CREAM SUNDAY...make a heart breakfast and then have ICE CREAM SUNDAES for lunch...let the kids create their own and then chow down in front of a good movie (in the AC). Instead of ordering out for pizza...buy the stuff to make your own - let the kids get creative with smiley faces and 'designer' pizza!! I know you'll get a lot of great ideas on your guestbook!! You will have a blast this summer!! KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK JAKE & ERIN...

Go to Kangaroo Zoo in North Salt Lake, Your kids will love it. It might be a little expensive but it's not too bad for a special occasion. Also check out the County Rec's Arts and Crafts at the schools, I'm not sure when they are but if you call South Davis Rec center they can give you the information.

I so enjoy reading about you and your family. I hear in your words your trememdous faith in God and that is so inspiring. I know what you mean when we discover God's plan for us through our children and the challenges He places in our lives each day and the opportunities we have to pass on the love. Keep up the faith. I don't have alot of suggestions as far as the summer with the kids go. Our children are grown now. But my daughter is very good with our granddaughters. She takes them to the library on a regular basis and they are wonderful readers and love books. Also since they have now finished summer school she came up with a plan to get them outdoors everyday by visiting each of the city parks in our town and taking a picnic lunch along. THen when they get home after lunchtime they will read their books while mom takes a brief nap since she has several health issues that require her to get a nap in each day. Hope this helps a little. God Bless You and your family.

There is seldom a day that I don't check your webpage to see if you have updated. I have received many blessings from your updates. I almost feel as if your children are my grandchildren. I have 9 grandchildren and one of them has some special needs. She is very dear to my heart, as are all my grandchildren. I am a child lover, I am often referred to as my church "nanny." You are doing a wonderful job with your children. I also enjoy the pictures. Will keep your family in my prayers. With love.

One very inexpensive idea, is to get large cardboard appliance boxes from an appliance store. Washer-Dryer boxes are about the right size for kids to turn into playhouses. Cut a door and then let the kids decorate playhouse with construction paper, butcher paper, old giftwrap, magazine pictures, scraps of fabric etc., what ever they want. If you have room, get several boxes and let them build a play town. (Grocery store, pet store, house, gas station, police station, Dr.office, etc.) or even turn the boxes into an imaginary castle. Limit is only your imagination. This can keep kids active decorating and also playing in them for weeks. When finished, just recycle the boxes. Worked with my kids and they still talk about them. Happy summer. j.

For a few years that I was going to Girls' Camp, when I got back I would "recreate camp" with my two younger kids (the two older went to camp with me) Anyway, I would buy beads and that plastic string, and they would "earn beads" for every thing they did or tried. We made things, read things, wrote letters to grandparents, played instruments, you name it... they got beads for getting along, or doing something nice. They also got to decorate a wooden "biscuit" with their name for the center of the necklace. It was a lot of fun- Hope that can help- inside can be tricky in the summer! Good luck, you guys are amazing!!

I know everything you have gone through you probably don't give out your address (I don't blame you). I would love to send you a package. Do you have a central address that I could mail it to?

Erin call or stop by your local University Extension Center (there is one in every county). And ask them for their Clover Kids or Clover Buds book. It may cost a couple of dollars or you may be able to check it out. It has great ideas of young kids!

I have kept up with the girls progress since their surgery. We pray that they continue to improve and just become happy little girls. We had a daughter that was waiting for a kidney transplant but developed cancer and could not receive the kidney. She was 51 when she passed away in 1-2008. We will continue to pray for your family and your brother. Love & Prayers, June Berger

Your children are an inspiration to all with their courage, strength, faith, and grace in the face of all they have endured. They help all of us put our own problems in perspective. You needed an idea for summer fun. Years ago I started a dress-up trunk for my daughter. I made different types of costumes from old clothing and bits and pieces of fancier materials. And I added funny hats, old purses, feather boas and crazy jewelry as I found things in yard sales and junk shops. It became a neighborhood treat for all the kids. I have terrific pictures of the kids in their fun combinations and a few embarrassing photos of poor Philip, the youngest, dressed in things his sisters picked out!! Our trunk came from K-Mart and looked like an old steamer trunk. I am sure that even an Army-Navy shop would have something inexpensive. It will get opened and closed a million times so it should be sturdy. Maybe even the folks at your church would donate fun items ...

Dear Erin, Maybe the girls could take up scapbooking. Could be GREAT HOBBY maybe they could play actresses or school. The kids probably have great imaginations. MaybeK&M could occasionally make alemonade or cookie selling stand on cooldays. Call the Salt Lake City Park and rec office sometimes they may have bowling cheaply. The girls can use ramps.Does your ward offer a day camp? Minicampouts in the back yard can happen sometimes.More later.

Hello Herrin Family!! I too wish I lived closer 2 u, bc I would give anything 2 be able 2 give u & ur husband a well deserved break & I would love nothing more 2 be able 2 meet ur kids. They r all so special n more ways than 1 & r such an inspiration 2 others!! If u ever need anyone 2 talk 2, u can email me & I can give u my number because I think u r such a wonderful mother & I truly look up 2 u in so many ways, but I know there r times when u feel overwelmed, u would have too, yet u never show it, u just keep going!! God blessed ur children with such a strong & dedicated loving mother! Try not 2 ever forget that. I have 2 children of my own ages 6 & 2 & I get overwelmed DAILY and when I come 2 ur site, u just amaze me everytime u leave a message & I try 2 be more and more like you & see things the way you do! Ideas for summer activities since we too live with not much extra AT ALL with bills could be like some folks have said--my kids love sidewalk chalk outside on the driveway or even in the garage, love 2 go 4 walks around the neighborhood, if u could even get a teenager like from a church 2 help -I know the churches here have things like that 2 help mothers out in the summer 2 maybe come & you could take the kids 2 the zoo? Im just guessing u all have a zoo there? if not, just a nice park 2 play 4 the day like u had mentioned is filled with fun & no cost at all. Also playing cards 2gether or some fun board games that the whole family enjoys, even filling water balloons up and playing back & fourth with those is fun, playing dress up with the girls Im sure would be crazy fun for them even letting them like pick something they like in courtneys closet 2 put on and b silly with & fix their hair up real pretty, put on some lipgloss! Even helping you with little chores sometimes I know might sound silly but my kids are at the ages right now that they LOVE to help me do stuff like vaccumming something with a handheld vaccum or helping me organize a drawer that needs it -things like that, my kids get a kick out of knowing they R helping mom & Im sure it couldnt hurt 4 you 2 have some extra help as well so its a winwin. making slushies or making a fruit smoothie & letting the kids put the fruit in and things like that they enjoy.Of course the baking of cookies & designing them like someone said is tons of fun. I also seen wear someone mentioned the making of jewelry with beads, that is a super idea I have a neighbor that her little girl started making them & selling them at her church & places like that 4 a couple dollars 2 raise money 4 Autism since her brother is autistic & it skyrocketed & not 2 long ago was even on the show Ellen since she has made so much money!but even just making them just 4 fun or making 2 sell 4 a couple dollars either way, im sure would be alot of fun 4 them.If I think of anything else I will sure let you know and if you would ever like to talk my email is gsca@insightbb.com Take Care, with love, Shannon

How about gardening? It's pretty late to start a garden, but not too late. This is a family project. Daddy digs a very small plot for each child participating or a slightly larger one if they prefer a group project. Let each child choose & plant a pack of seeds, Water as necessary. Then they check daily for plants to sprout & grow. I plant many seeds that never come up, so be prepared for failure (Part of life we have to deal with). A six or 12 pack of small potted annuals would give each child a few blooming plants to nurture and hopefully watch grow and bloom. Then if you wished, a perennial for each child should grow all summer and next spring they could watch for it to come up again - then everybody starts all over. When I was able to get up and down, I loved to sit on the ground beside my flower beds and just work away, digging, weeding, trimming, etc. I've noticed your family like to play on the floor, so this might appeal to the girls. Love and God's blessings to all.

Here's an idea for summer! We put our tent together in our living room and took our 4 year old camping for a night. We all slept in the tent and ate camp food--all from the comfort of home! It was really fun and I bet your kiddos would have a great time! Glad to hear that Kendra is healing. I keep your family in my prayers daily!

Hello Herrin's! I have a suggestion for summer activities. At our local movie theaters, we have summer movies where you can see movies that were previously played that year, but you only have to play a dollar or two to get in. That might be a fun thing to do!

As a suggestion to what to do, our family (I have 3 kids of my own and have adopted my brothers 2 children so our brood are as big as yours, aged 6,6,5,4 and 3)... Over half term I cooked 'dinner' with the kids for their Dad when he came home (and for them), we made little canapas for starters, chicken for main course and eclares for desert. The kids were each responsible for something - setting the table, being waiters of waitresses, cooking different parts of the meal. We paired the youngest and oldest together so they had some help and it worked really well - they were very excited when Daddy came in! Although it was probably a little more expensive than our normal dinner I brought the ingediants as cheaply as I could (we're fairly hard up at the moment too) and we had a lovely day and the meal as perfect! I hope this helps, God Bless, Sally

What about "scrapbooking"? Not the elaborate pages that are advertized now, but just cut & paste from colorful popular magazines to a blank page notebook. They used to have cheap paper books for this purpose. They could start out just selecting pictures they like or develope a theme, "my favorite foods" or "beautiful ladies" or " pretty outfits" finding jewely, shoes, & clothing to go together, or wherever their imagination takes them.They could work on them for a while, then come back another day to add more pages. If friends, family & church knew you wanted throwaway magazines, I'm sure there would be plenty.

Erin, My boys used to love to make "movies" with our video camera. They were elaborate productions with costumes and carefully assigned roles, and now they are a hoot to watch. Your girls may need Mom to be the producer and the camera person at this point, but believe mne, they will grow into doing the whole thing on their own by the time they are eight or nine. Such fun, and such a boost to their creativity. My boys just formed a self-image as actors and creative people, and by high school they were in all the plays. Good luck! Betsy Watson

This is in response to your request for summertime activity ideas... If you know a handy person (Jake?), perhaps he can make a sand table. It's sort of like an indoor sandbox, but you stand outside of it. Making your own would probably be a whole lot cheaper than buying one. Playing with nice clean sand can be so relaxing - kind of hypnotic - and would probably keep the kids busy for long periods of time. You can buy little sand toys for it, and other plastic toys like little people, etc.

Instead of a "normal" lunch indoors, a picnic under a tree in the backyard makes peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that much better. Letting each child be breakfast helper one day a week. The boys can help make cinnamin toast by sprinkling the sugar and cinnamin. Taking that a step further, you can designate someone to be child of the day and allow them to make some decisions throughout the day. You let them choose between two options for meals. They get to pick the movie or game for family time, etc. Make believe is always fun..someone mentioned building a tent and I remember having a ton of fun doing that when I was little, don't forget the friendly ghost stories.

Wow! So many good ideas! I think I'll try some of these with my two little people! When I was little I loved making tents out of sheets and going "camping" with them in the yard. Sprinklers are always fun too. For indoor fun, you could make no-bake cookies or freeze koolaid into popsicles.

one thing you might be able to do with the kids is to have them makeup a play (possibly with some cousins also involved) and then perform it at the end of the week.

Use dry spaghetti noodles and mini marshmallows and have them build towers and tall buildings to create their own cities. I am a special education teacher and I use this as a team building activity with my students with emotional disturbance. It is interesting to see how much the children feed off of each others towers and try to make theirs the highest. Then they can use their toys cars and Barbies to walk through the city.

Family Fun Magazine or their website has some great ideas for cool summer fun. My 9 yr old twin girls like to play with play-doh. Shrinky dinks (like when we were kids) are always fun. The special paper can be found at your local craft store. Hope all the ideas that are coming in are working at keeping the kids busy and everyone having fun at the same time. Enjoy!

I worked for an after school program for elementary school age children. One of the most fun things we did was build a "structure" out of very large boxes (the kid that come with appliances inside). I think I called some stores to inquire about getting the boxes. The kids loved it. The older ones connected the boxes (and often rearranged them) to make long tunnels with various twists and turns. They cut out windows on the side and peek holes with flaps on the top. Both are necessary for ventilation because the kids, especially the younger kids loved to crawl and run through the boxes. It would definitely be an early morning activity in hot SLC., but could possibly be moved indoors if you have a large room or basement.

Erin, The local libraries here have wonderful summer programs for kids as part of the summer reading program. They are all free to the public. Several of the larger bookstores such as Books-a-Million and Barnes and Nobles also have programs. These frequently include puppet shows, magic shows, or craft projects.

Try giving the kids paint brushes and buckets of water. Let them "paint" the sidewalk, patio, etc. Sidewalk chalk is always fun, too. Water balloons help to cool off, then you can make a game out of cleanup, to see who can find the most pieces of balloon. Much love to you and your family..I check daily for updates...we are all very blessed to be a part of your lives.

Hi Erin, I was talking with my husband about ideas you can do at home. My kids really enjoy making paper bag puppets and putting on a show for the family. A fun learning to is spreading shaving cream on cookie sheets and letting them practice writing or making designs. A fun activity is to make sugar cookies shaped like big hands and then decorating them to look like they have fancy nails and jewelry with candy and different colors of icing. One idea is to glue colored tissue paper to vases with modge podge and a brush or craft sponge or painting rocks to look like bugs or people and glue them together with hot glue (a parent's job of course) I will give it some thought and check bookstores for ideas and get back to you.My kids love to paint "keyhole" shaped paver stones to look like various animals and characters. I will check with my mom for the patterns she uses and then I would be happy to mail them to you.Many of the building material companies will donate discontinued items. I will keep thinking about it and let you know what I come up with.

Hi Herrin Family, A good activity is perhaps to make "Friendship" Bracelets with embroidery thread. If Kendra and Maliyah can learn to do simple braids, then it can work. You could start by showing them how to braid "Barbie doll" hair then progress to embroidery thread, and then you could add some beads. I was a Spark and Brownie Leader, ages 5 to 8, (the younger Girl Guides in Canada, guess it would be Girls Scouts in US) and the girls really liked learning to make them. Just a thought to keep the girls busy sometimes. Beverley

I cant imagine dealing with that heat and having to keep that many children busy. I have a few ideas. Can you rent movies from your libray for free then go home and have a picnic while you watch them. Go to the libray choose a country to study then make thier foods and have a special dinner of them for daddy when he comes home. Have the kids do a talent show for you. Bake cookies and take them to a freind or a nursing home. Get a inexpensive tent and have a camp out in the house. I know you need to get out of the house too go on a scavange hunt at the mall. Each kid has a list of things they have to find like a store that has a orange shrit, someone pushing a stroller, a store that sells candy, a store with the letter z, ect. this can take hours and you can pack a lunch and have a picnic at the food court. Good luck hope my silly ideas helped. God Bless. Thank you for sharing your lifes with us all.

Dear Herrin Family, You are in our thoughts and prayers. I hope you will be able to get a much needed break. You are an amazing family. I was reading the archives about one of your FHE when Maliyah wanted to give socks to Jesus for Christmas. I cried when I read it. You are raising amazing and tenderhearted children. I have watched the video in the photo gallery many many times with my children. We stand in awe of your goodness and commitment to all that is right and good. I have cerebral palsy and could relate to the excitement of tiny new crutches. Kendra and Maliyah are doing wonderfully. What a blessing for them to have Courtney, Austin and Justin as eternal siblings and friends. They will grow up learning so much from one another. You are a blessing to mankind. Thank you for sharing your lives with us. You are a beacon of light. Your very lives testify of our Savior. I appreciate your examples and courage.Moroni 8 3 I would love to meet you all one day.

Hi Erin, You need "the pause that refreshes." It doesn't have to be a big deal since you don't have time for that. If Jake is still working so many hours, maybe you could get someone from the family or a good friend to just come for a couple of hours, pack a picnic lunch, and you and Courtney go find a tree somewhere with some shade, lay down on a blanket and look at the sky, just talking girl talk for awhile. She is at the age where she would remember always this time alone with you, just shooting the breeze. Sometimes this simple break means an awful lot when you feel overwhelmed. Just an idea. I don't know how much alone time Courtney gets with mom, but she is at the age where it would mean a lot to both of you. Just an idea. I'm glad Josh got to come home, and wish Jake a belated Happy Birthday. With Love, Karen

Sending love and light to you from Amelia Island, Florida. May God continue to bless you and your family.

Erin, I am a mother of six and grandmother to eight so far. If you really need someone to help please contact me. I have been following the twins since I knew about them and the possiblilty of the seperation surgery. I work for Big Brother Big Sisters so that I can help children. Possibly I could find a week this summer to come and help. We would need to discuss dates. If you email me back I will send you my phone number but do not want to put it out on the web. My husband is a minister so we are good Godly folks. Let me know.....Ferne

boy, would i love to come and help you with the kids! Just wished I lived closer. Take it easy on yourself....try to at least get in a long bath at night when the kids are asleep. That helps me sometimes, get a few candles and just relax. my prayers are with you and your family - hang in there you are doing great!!!

Hi Erin dont' worry about Courtney and the computer game, i expect she spends time on it as unwinding time now that school is out. The boys will get there,, just when you think they will never get the hang of it. They 'know' you need them to be dry before school in September! Glad to hear that K and M are progressing well. Take care of yourself - i hope you get a rest during the summer, it Does get easier as they get bigger and more independent.. you are teaching them well,

Hang in, you have been so upbeat for so long, how could you not be tired and discouraged, just remember how amazing you are, how much you do for your kids and what an incredible advocate you are for the whole family, you are an inspiration to so many of us that do not have the special issues you deal with every day. Hope you can find a way to take any break you can, you deserve it!!!

Hi Erin, Thank you for your update today. Sure wish I lived close where I could watch the children so you and Jake could go out. I would absolutely LOVE to do that for you. Every mom needs a break once in a while and every couple needs a date night now and then as well. I only know your family through your web site, but I care about you like you were my own family.

Thank you Erin for the update about Josh. It was really refreshing to have an update.I was looking at pictures of the family on lunch break. What an amazing journey you have lived! I know the power of love especially between family. Josh seems like an amazing man. If you parents have done a great job raising you and they have, they have given Josh just as much support and love. I GUESS MY MESSAGE IS FOR YOUR MOM AND DAD SO PASS IT ON TO THEM. Continued prayers Bummer about swimming,but I know the girls and family are going to stay busy.

I hope Justin and Austin enjoyed their birthday - June birthdays are brilliant, half way between Christmases and usually warm and sunny. Mine was yesterday and I always remember when I was little having my birthday party in the garden! Take care of yourselves and each other. My thoughts and prayers are with you as always.

I've been following your family for a long time and I've always thought that your girls are miracles. I recently learned some statistics about conjoined twins and know I know your girls are miracles. God obviously has something special in mind for your girls given all the stats against them. Also, it's unfortunate that the U.S. has such a ridiculos healthcare system. I'm not an American hater and I'm not rubbing it in your face, but if Canada has one thing right it's universal helathcare. Hopefully, if Barack Obama becomes president, you guys will get it too.

I check your website regularly to see how your family is doing. You inspire me, not only because of the miracle of Kendra and Maliyah's separation, but because your family is so incredibly loving, caring, and stable throughout the stress of medical conditions. When I have kids, I hope I can be half as good a parent as Erin and Jake are. God bless you.

Hi Erin, I'm happy to hear that the girls are slowly getting better, and that the wound vac at home is helping Kendra. I wish them both a speedy recovery so they can enjoy their summer holidays!! Sorry to hear about your fender bender, but glad that no one got hurt. It's also good to hear that Courtney & the boys are enjoying their summer. I saw the Dateline episode the other night with the previously conjoined twins who now have the helper legs, I'm assuming that is the family you met? Anyway, their helper legs were pretty amazing and I can see why K&M are so excited to get theirs!! It's wonderful what science can do these days. You mentioned previously that the girls would also have back surgery this summer. I trust they will recover well from their current surgeries, so their back surgeries can be successful too. I feel bad about all the surgeries the girls have to go through, but I know it will all be worth it when you look back on it. Take care,

I am so glad to read the update today. My little daughter has been asking me every day "How is Kendra? She's not going to die, is she, Mummy?" and today I can tell her, there's news from the Herrins. And your guardian angel is very busy, it seems ;-). But if you have to have a car-crash, isn't it nice to be hit by friendly people? And, Erin, I am very glad to read that you have people around who take the other kids sometimes and they sure seem to have a great time there with others who love them. There is a saying in german that it takes a whole village to raise a child and if Courney has her cousin for a pal and the boys, too, have fun at their "outing", you can relax a bit. May God bless you every day!

I am so sorry to hear about the latest struggles with Kendra. I have seen you at PCH a lot lately. (I'm the mom that gave you batteries at Make A Wish event with several children that stay at PCH) Those girls have been threw so much. When another struggle comes it almost seems so unfair that they have to deal with yet another challenge. While it is hard on the entire family, I know with prayer you will be able to make it. These children are truley gifts from heaven, and you are truley a wonderful women to have been blessed with these special children. I believe they would not have been sent to you if you could not have been able to take care of the many special challenges you face. When things get difficult and hard to handle, please remember your family is always in our thoughts and prayers. If you ever need anyone to talk to, come find us at PCH it seems we are always there! Good luck.

Please know that our prayers are with your family. We pray for the healing, complete healing of precious Kendra's little body. We are thankful that Maliyah got along as well as she did. We pray that Kendra will heal soon and completely with no infection. The Lord brought them through the seperation and many other trials and we believe He will bring Kendra through this trial as well. It sure is hard to watch our children suffer. We also pray for you, Erin and Jake as you care for your wonderful family that the Lord has entrusted to your care.

I think this is a scam now. I used to love reading the updates and looking at the pictures but it seems the updates have recently changed tone and don't "sound" like the Herrins anymore. Does anyone else agree? Maybe I am wrong and I hope so. If I am, I apologize but things just seem different. I hope all is well with the Herrins.

And speaking of news, what a great news video of you and the girls. It was wonderful to see them so active and joyful. You have truely been blessed. Can't believe it's been two years.

Thank you very much for the update. My prayer rate was speeding up, already. And I looked at the video just now. This is just great! The girls look so happily normal, you get more interested in things like "do they ever quarrel? What is their favorite food? What do they like to play with?" than in the fact that once they were conjoined. Hope everything is going on well with all your family and that there will be holidays soon (the last weeks of school are hard on kids over here, too). God bless you!

Within the chaos and confusion of having two of your daughters in the hospital for surgery, you can still see the beauty of your other daughter as a flower in the school play. Of course she did a good job. She has you and Jake as examples of how to do the best you can.

MRSA is treatable, you just need stronger antibiotics. You are able to over come it. It is not 100 percent the Dr's fault. A hospital is not the only place you can contract it. You can pick it up ANYWHERE. As a nurse in a PICU in the hospital I come across it every day. Surgeries are still done on people with MRSA. It is not a life sentence.

Im sorry to hear about the MRSA. But when ever I hear about someone that has it, I all ways think, idiot doctors, because you only can get it in a hospital and it is the doctors fault 100 percent because they don't santize well enough so thats how it happens. You could actually sue the hospital its been done. I hope k and m can come home soon!

For the MRSA, can I recommend acupuncture (or acupressure if the idea of needles is too much) for boosting the immune system. It's changed my life from being completely dependent on anti-biotics (up to 7 per year) to being anti-biotic free for the last 2 years. Ginger, garlic and honey are also great. Fingers toes and everything else crossed for you all.

I'm sorry to hear about Maliyahs MRSA infection. Thats a darn tricky, and highly contageous, infection to fight. It stays with you forever even if it is inactive and it makes most doctors unwilling to do surgeries for situations that aren't life or death. Over here in Connecticut there was a HUGE buzz about 4 diagnosed cases of MRSA in the state this past year. My parents are two of them (who are about to celebrate the 13th anniversary of thier kidney transplant) Since then we've adapted our lifestyle to revolve around paper napkins rather than hand towels, and sanitizer in every room. No worries though, your family has already proven you can handle everything that life has to throw at you. This is nothing compared to what you've already been through. Good luck and I hope the girls heal up quickly so they can go out and enjoy the summer!!!!

Erin, so glad things went well, you all will continue to be in our prayers. Now..please take a deep breath about the MRSA. It means that this staph aureus bacteria she has is resistant to a drug called methcillin. There are other drugs that can treat it though,it's just a more resistant infection. Thank goodness they caught it early. Our son has had this bacteria for several years off and on in his bone. He has done very well with Vancomycin,and, or Gentamycin and Zyvox when it flares back up. He has an immune deficiency too but has been able to be treated and is doing well,even with occasional relapses. Since his MRSA is inside a bone it's harder to eradicate totally. I hope this helps ease your mind a bit. K and M and all of you remain in our daily prayers. So glad the surgeries went so well for both girls! God bless Richard and Teresa

Yes, I read about MRSA a number of years ago and about how many contract it in the hospitals - as well as how very difficult it can be to overcome. However, the dr. who wrote the article, mentioned about the power of GRAPEFRUIT SEED Extract to CURE it - as well as other bacteria and viruses, too. If she can have grapefruit, I'd think she could take the grapefruit seed extract. I have one bottle by Nutribiotic, but you can look up about grapefruit seed extract on the Net and read about it. I have been checking on the girls almost every day for the last couple of years - and was really worried when you didn't update anything yesterday or earlier today. Soooo glad to hear all went well. May I please also mention the hazards of eating SUGAR. It lowers the immunity and is really destructive in many ways. One can us STEVIA to sweeten foods, or a little honey, but Stevia does not contain sugar, which even honey does. You can also look up about Stevia on the Net -- it is said to even have health benefits. You are in my heart, thoughts, and prayers! God Bless you and yours! Love, Eleanor

I am assuming no news is good news. Prayers and best wishes are being sent your way. You are the most incredibly strong, wise parents I have heard about recently. You have been tested, and have come through with your kind spirits and strength held together by your faith and family. Most of all I like your humble unassuming manner. I enjoy your journals. They will become real family treasurers in the years to come. GM

Hello! Your family is truly amazing! I have been reading your blog since before the girls separation. I am so amazed at how positive you all are and how much love you all have for each other. Your story has moved me and helped keep me positive through my family's struggles. In February our little Henry joined the world 9 weeks early weighing only 1 pound 10 ounces. He is still in the hospital and is getting better after a fight with RSV and pneumonia. He is a big 4 pounds 10 ounces now and I hope he will be coming home in a few weeks. I think about your family often and how happy I am that you have shared your story. My thoughts and prayers are with you for continued health and happiness!

I am sending mental and spiritual support for you and your family as you go through this difficult week. I have followed K&M's story for years, and have never 'blogged' or asked a question in the past; I only sent my best wishes for all of you outside of the WWW. In your msg today you wrote you might have time to write again tomorrow. As I am not a member of your faith, I would very much like to know what a "blessing" is. It sounds very special and important, and I would like to know more. Your family is an inspiration to all, regardless of specific beliefs or faith. I hope the next few days go as quickly, painlessly, and positively as possible. Thank you for letting so many strangers follow your path. You and your family are remarkable. Lisa

Oh my gosh, are you a precious family! I just wanted to leave a note for you to say thank you. I am an OB nurse, and on my downtime I search the internet for special situations to read about. This helps me to have ideas for things to talk about with parents when special situations arise. That way, hopefully, I can refer to situations I've read about that may give them hope or help them to understand they are not alone. So, thank you for sharing your story and your feelings so openly. Every one of your children is adorable. How blessed you are! (and potty-training boys... don't even get me started!)lol

Sorry things are going rough for you right now. I wish your boys could come to the pre-school where I work. I always found the end of the school year tough when my 4 were young. On top of ALL of us being ready for school to end, the teachers were either cramming work down their throats to "finish up" or doing time filling or wasting activities. Keep your chin up! Summer will be here before you know it!

Children can be wetting at night til they are 7 or 8. Just keep on loving them and never ever scold. I think Courtney may be stressed by her little sisters' suffering. She is probably internalising all her feelings. They are all darlings. Hang in there. Everything will be ok.

Hi Erin, When my sister was potty training her son she bought him Spiderman underwear and put them on the wall in his room. She told him as soon as he was ready to go potty on his own he could have them to wear. He was trained in less than two weeks! He is now married and has sons of his own but my sister still has the picture of him flexing his muscles like a big wrestler -- wearing his Superman undies! It is a great picture and we have had many laughs over it!

So sorry to hear about your bad week. You sound rather stressed out...with very good reason. I'll say a prayer for the girls to get better, the boys to calm down a little, Courtney to settle down in school, and for you to have a chance to catch your breath. I hope the knowledge of having people care and praying for you and your family is a comfort to you.

My daughter was almost 4 when she was completely trained, but somehow it all worked out with preschool, etc. It will work out for you and your boys too. Hang in there, Courtney, it will be summer soon. YAY!!!

My sister once started collecting things that she heard her friends (and herself) say to their kids that one person should just not have to tell another. One of her favorites was "don't rub your apple on the cat. It makes the cat sticky and the apple furry!" That does seem self-evident, but apparently, not to a three-year-old! Little boys. Good to keep your sense of humor. It can be hard at times, but it makes life with little kids happier.

Hi Herrins, Great updates and pictures. It is amazing how fast our kids grow up!!!! Enjoy every minute with them as I am sure you do. K&M seem to be doing extremely well as well as your other 3 children. Courtney seems like the perfect big sister to all the younger ones. She is a beautiful girl!!! Actually all of your children are beautiful. Loved the pictures from Disney and I am so glad that you all had a great time. One question-- how is Ally doing? You haven't mentioned her lately and I am a dog lover too -- Just wondering. All my best to your family -- Ally, too!!!

Hi!! Your pictures are great!! Loved seeing them. Your family is simply amazing!!! You have 5 very precious children. Your trip to Disney looked perfect. Brought back fond memories for me --- we took our 1st trip to Disney World in Florida with our 4 children when the youngest was 2 and the oldest was 7. It was a great family week. I am sure you and your family had a great time. I am sure you are looking forward to the next trip to Disney --- there is always something new and different to do there. I am so happy your family is doing so well. Not long till summer vacation for them. Look forward to more up-dates. God Bless

Oh my gosh! Your kids are getting so big and each one of them is as beautiful as the next. The love you all have for each other is evident in your photos. Jake and Erin, you are such caring and wonderful parents. As parents we all have our joys and sorrows; I'm glad you both try to find the joy each day. Oh, and telling the boys not to pee on each other was hilarious. It reminds me of when my boys were little and I caught them trying to pee through holes in the fence. Our family continues to pray you and yours.

Thank you for sharing that priceless moment with your boys. I laughed as I read it because I remember hearing a story of my brother, as a young child, peeing on the back of the family dog. I guess the saying is true, "boys will be boys." Keep those cute stories coming. Children are so precious. Michelle

Thank you for letting us follow your family's story. I have been following the girls since about two or three months before they where separated, but I've read all the way back to the beginning multiple times. You do not let the girls' medical issues prevent them from being normal children. I love that you do not hide the girls from the public, but you allow them to enjoy the same things my boys love, like Disneyland and the beach. I hope everything keeps going so well for your family.

I have been following your website for about a 2 years. I can't believe how big all the kids are. It is so fun to find the updates and hear how each child in your family is excelling in what they do. Courtney is looking much older. They grow so darn fast. The boys don't look like babies anymore either. The girls are starting to look more grown up tto. Glad you had a great vacation. You sure deserve it!

Thanks for the updated pictures. I can't believe how much of a young lady Courtney is turning into. Kendra and Maliyah have grown so much. It's great being able to see them have fun and play in all the pictures. The boys have grown a lot too. You've got two handsome little men.

Your family is the light at the end of my every day....I check on you all every day through your web site. I love your pictures, your stories, your out loud thoughts, and you overall concerns and love for your family. One thing I can say is that you are lucky I am not you neighbor....your kids would be calling me Aunt Sandy because I would never leave. If you look up the word "FAMILY" in the dictionary your picture should be posted next to it. Keep up the good work and I am so happy you are all happy and healthy.

Well done, Courtney! You're a star! And congratulations, Erin, on a clear check-up. It's hard to believe it's been a year since the transplant. I know as far as the boys' pre-school goes, you'll put their interests first. Education is important and a child's introduction to the system leaves a lasting impression, so it has to be a happy experience - I speak as a retired Kindergarten teacher in the British education system. You've seen Kendra and Maliyah thrive in a school-based pre-school, but you know Justin and Austin better than anyone else. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you face another important decision. God bless. Lots of love to you all x x x x x x x x x

Dear Herrin Family, I sent a greeting yesterday, but don't see it posted, don't know what happened, but I must tell you I am so thankful that you had a safe, wonderful Disney trip. Trust the children got to see all of the Disney gang, like Mickey, Minnie and everyone else they may have dreamed of seeing. What wonderful memories were made. Do as much as you can while they are young and everyone is still at home., and take lots of pictures too. Please know that our prayers will be with you as you go through the upcoming surgeries the middle of May. God Bless Friends who truly care, in Illinois Earl and Cindy Felix

Glad to hear everyone had a great time on the vacation!! There always seems to be so much work when vacation is over and we have to get back to school or our jobs, but you're right, it always is SO worth it!! I used to be afraid of the rides too when I was a kid, but eventually got used to many of the rides and found a few that I really likes, I'm sure that eventually K&M will discover there are some rides they enjoy as well. Looking forward to seeing the photos, take care Herrin family!!!

I am so glad to hear that you had a great time.. Your whole family deserves it. My family of 6 always drove 18 hours every year to get to the beach, it was a long ride, once we even took a friend of my daughters, 7 in a minivan! The memories are so worth all the hassle it seemed at the time. They are all grown now and do the same with their families. Bless all of you!!

Have just been reading through your journal and looking and the photos. You guys really are an amazing family! The kids are all so, so cute, and cheeky looking - what a handful! Mum and dad you are the same age as me, 27, but my life is very different to yours, so I completely take my hat off to you guys managing to cope with a big family and all their needs. Cope sounds wrong - you're doing a lot more than just coping are you, you are doing amazingly. Lots of love and God bless to you and all five children, hope you have a wonderful summer with as few visits to doctors as possible!

Yours is not only a beautiful family, but it is an inspiration to all of us out here with only the regular day to day problems that most people face! With you and your husband sharing your lives here, you reach out to all of us with your faith, courage and strength...even during the times when maybe you didn't recognize that these things were a part of your lives! My prayers will be that all of you will continue to live your lives in the light of God's Love; and that He will continue to bless you all with even more miracles!

I hadn't heard of your daughters until I accidently stumbled accross this site. I'm supposed to be working, but I've spent the last two hours learning everything I can about them, and I have been in tears at my desk the entire time! Thank you for this site and sharing your experiences. You have truly amazing girls who I'm sure will grow to be truly amazing women. It reminds me of that quote "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain." - I think your family displays that message beautifully. I wish you all the best!

I have just spent the past 3 hours going through your website and your blogs and pictures! The story of your family's journey is amazing and humbling. We all take life for granted and think the smallest hurdles are impossible. Your family has truly been an inspiration to just be more thankful for life and for all the loved ones around us. P.S. I work at Disneyland. Maybe I'll be working and be lucky enough to run into you guys!

Wow you guys are amazing. I saw a picture of your girls on a news website (ABC, I think) and I remembered reading a few years back about a surgery to separate them, and couldn't remember if I heard the outcome. So I looked it up, and found your journal. What a wonderful site, and great family you have. It is so good to read that the surgery went well and am sorry to hear of your continued medical trials. I wish you all the best in health and a great life. Very beautiful girls and family, all of them. I have to say I agree with you about negative comments! How awful that people would even do that. I see mean comments to video posters on YouTube, even to young girls tributing Hannah Montana, and I just don't get it. Take care and have a great vacation.

Hey Herrins, I love reading your updates, you are such a wonderful family. Maliyah & Kendra (and mom & dad too), don't worry too much about your upcoming back surgery! My sister had the exact same operation and to this day is sooooo happy that she did it! Even though operations aren't the most fun, her and I still have some of the best memories of the time she had at the hospital. The coolest thing is that she can't slouch anymore (she feels like she is slouching but just doesn't look like it) so you will never have to have someone tell you amazing little girls to sit up straight--haha! All the best & God Bless!

Congrats on your 1 year transplant anniversary! I can't believe it's been that long. Hope everyone is feeling better before you leave for Disneyland. Try to get extra antibiotics to take with you in case someone else gets it while you're there. I know if one gets it in our house another 3 or 4 of us will get it. Have a great time!!

At their age, I have no idea what i would do and how i would handle it. It just shows to how smart they are! Your other kids are just adorable as well. Best of luck to you and your family.

I have to say, I have been checking out your web site since I heard about your babies. I am so amazed at how strong you are. You children are georgous. I was told during my second pregnancy that I was having triplets. I was scared. Petrified to be honest. Thank God for mothers!!!! My mother told me "God never gives you more than you can handle". Well, I lost 2 of them during my 4th month, and had a very healthy baby boy at full term. It was God's plan to not give me triples for a reason. I don't think I could have done it. So to see you with your girls, going through what you all have gone through, Is AWSOME!!!! I love reading the posts, and agree with you, WHO CARES about the spelling, if they don't like it, then maybe they are reading this for the wrong reason!!! Again GREAT JOB, Your family is AMAZING!!!!!!

As an English teacher and as a person who looks at your site regularly, I just want to say You are ROCK STARS!!! Anyone who wants to pick on the words you use to express your life needs to get over it. This is not school, it is your life, and you are leading by example. PS, post the insurance company, maybe some of your 'friends' will call to complain about the treatment you are not receiving. Good Luck, and Keep up the Good Fight.

I have two special girls and a third coming. We lost out Amber last March. I frequently have to fight for the basic necessities to care for them. Anyone who would criticize your spelling or grammar is not busy enough in my humble opinion. They need to walk in your shoes and see how well they do.

Hi Herrins! I'm so sorry to hear that you're all feeling lousy, but hopefully all the meds will kick-in soon and you'll all be your best for your Disney trip. I had to laugh for you when I read your post about your spelling. I'm the worlds WORST speller! I thank God for spell check when it's available- but when it's not, I choose my words carefully. Honestly, I don't care either. Published works get proof-read more than once before being printed and often errors get through. Hey, if the "best" can misspell, then we can too-right? When my daughter was small, she was in Girl Scouts and also took dance from an early age. At 8 years old, she announced to us that she was "retiring" from dance because she missed playing with her friends and birthday parties and the like. We thought that was hysterical that she was "retiring", but she came up with that 'cause that was the year my dad retired and she learned that you can decide to stop doing something and the world didn't get mad at you for quiting, but threw you a party. We all still laugh about it today and now she'll almost 17. Rest up and mispell as much as you want! We don't care, we just love to hear from you guys. Love to all of you! -Sue

Dear Herrin, Hope your family gets well soon so you can all enjoy your well deserved trip to Disney!!!!! Don't let the insurance company get the best of you. They like to give everyone a hassle!!! I personally hate talking to my insurance company --- always a problem. Also, don't listen to the negative comments --- just hit DELETE. You are a remarkable family. You and Jake are doing a fantastic job with your beautiful family. People twice your age would have a hard time dealing with all the medical issues you have had with your family. I marvel at the wisdom you both show towards your children. They are blessed to have such wonderful parents. Remember, God never gives us more than we can handle!!! And you are an inspiration. When I get frustrated with my family, I think of you and your family and say if they can do it I certainly can!!! You are in my thoughts and prayers everday. I hope you have a fantastic time at Disney. Also, we will keep you in our prayers for the up-coming surgeries. Keep the up-dates coming!!! God Bless!!!!

Congratulations on your 1 year transplant anniversary!!! I may have mentioned this before, but my mom gave a kidney to my sister 10 years ago. She is doing just great and we had a big 10-yr celebration party a few weeks ago. I pray that Maliyah will have many, many healthy years with her kidney. My mom is 65 and still doing great with only one kidney, too!

Erin, The Lord knows just exactly where HE wants to place HIS children, whether HE choses to place perfectly healthy children or those that need SPECIAL care. I believe that HE and HE alone chose you and Jake as parents for Kendra and Maliyah because HE knew what kind of parents you would be to them, HE entrusted them to your care for their earthly journey. Love, Cindy

Dear Erin, Jake and family, We are so happy to hear that Maliyah's kidney is secure and not failing. Please know that our prayers will be with you as you travel to Disneyland. We trust you will have a tremendously fun and relaxing time as a family. We will also be praying for the girls and your family as they face their upcoming surgeries in May. No one likes to look forward to surgery, but we trust that their surgeries will be successful as they have been in the past. We know how the Lord has brought them through in the past and He will do just that again this time. Thank You so much for keeping those of us (and there are many) who truly care about your family, updated. Please don't worry one bit about typing or grammar errors, what differeance does that make anyway. In Christ, Cindy Felix

To whomever wrote, UM you did choose to have special needs kids. Erin and Jake chose to have Kendra & Maliyah.Yes, they might have special needs and disabilities,but I bet their abilities and talents outshine their disabilities.Insurance problems and jams can be frustrating and can occur to all.

I feel your pain with insurance companies, a young(early 40's) friend of my dad has cancer and has met his life time deductable of $1 Million, so his insurance will no longer cover any of his treatments and since he has a pre-existing condition no other insurance company will touch him. Now without treatments what is he to do? The insurance company has basically said ok you have costed us so much money you can no longer be treated even though you have paid us this amount of money. You are now on your own. Our government needs to spend more time looking into insurance companies. I do not know how these people can live with themselves after the things they do to people. Morally and ethically wrong! Please let us all know how or if we can help, we can write Senators, Governors, Better Business Bureaus, and the President if it will help you and your beautiful daughters. I know donations and other means may be available. We have to look after each other since we can not depend on those that are suppose to be here to help us. God Bless and I hope the family gets all better before Disney!

Keep your chin up. Don't let the individuals that feel they need to comment about grammarical errors get to you. Chances are they are not trying to keep a household with five kids going. I am so sorry that you are having to deal with the insurance companies. Does Utah have any programs that can help? I know the State of NC has programs for financial assistance for children with serious medical issues. Of course, there is a waiting list. Good luck and please keep posting. I enjoy hearing about your family.

I love reading your updates and hearing of your happy times. I also like following the amazing progress of Maliyah and Kendra, your struggles and worries and also the joy that all your family brings you. You are all doing such an amazing job. Hopefully when the boys go off to "school" shortly, you will be able to take an hour off totally for yourself, Erin,to sit and have a coffee or whatever with a friend or relation, away from the house and not fill all the time in with the huge load of things that you must have to do around the house every day. The 5 will be all "grown up" so soon. You will then be able to sit back and look at your lovely family and smile. I hope, at that time, you will sense a few "well done"s and "you are amazing parent"s and "happiness and success for the 5 as they make their way through life", floating around you as you settle down into a more relaxed life which will come sooner than you think! You have another worrying period of surgery coming up, we will worry with you and hope that all just goes super well. Best wishes

Erin, I had to reread your entry from yesterday. All of us are unique! We each have diferent likes, dislikes and talents too. As long as we are using are talents to help others, we are moving in God's Direction. I know that your family strives to do this and I know in my heart that you have inspired many.

I am so glad that the kidney is OK> I am sure the bladder can be helped with your great doctors. And what a thing to look forward to, the helper leg! They will benefit by it. Bless all of you.

I just got home from California an hour ago, and I live in SC. A long flight, but I have good news! The weather is great! My Mom and Dad took my brother, sister, and I to DisneyLand and it was so much fun! I know you guys will have a ball! I hope you have a great trip to California! And, Great job Kendra for getting used to the crutches!

Erin, I'm glad things seem to be going smoothly for you lately. It makes life a lot easier. It's great news that the kidney is not trying to reject itself. Have a great trip to Disney World. It's always fun to have something to look forward to. It's always nice to see updates & how all of you are. Daycare already? It does seem like the boys were just born. I continue to pray for your whole family. don't let those few negative people get you down. You have been through so much, they have no idea what it's like. In God's Love, Margie

I love my career but I truly love, love, love being a mom and that is what I am first and foremost. I will be praying for the kidney and for your trip to disney. Have fun on a much deserved vacation. I work with a lot of families in trouble. I wish you could talk to them so they could hear your story and see your relationship with Jake. It is so important to be a good role model for our children as they watch us all the time. God bless, Martha

Hello Herrins! I missed when you are going to Disneyland so maybe you are there now. It is truly a fun and magic place and you will all have a great time. A belated Happy Birthday to you Erin and to the girls. Courtney, congratulations on your standings in the dance contest, I know you are feeling happy and proud of that, it feels good doesn't it? I guess you have had enough advise about rude people, I just want to share a personal similar story and how I delt with it. Someone did something that upset me very badly and it bothered me for years. Then one day I thought, this is bothering and upsetting me, and it is not upsetting them at all, or how could they have done it to begin with? So I decided to forgive them, it was the only way I could look at it that ended my own turmoil over the whole thing. It worked for me and I never thought about it again with painful feelings. It wasn't as hard as I thought. This is more upsetting because it shows up here where everyone sees it. Perhaps someone you are close to who would love to fill their time helping would like to be a moderator who can view and block these sort of things before they get onto the comment pages. I heard once that we are all doing the best we can. It is very sad that some people's best is so destructive. I try and consider whatever happened in their lives that this is the best they can do, and it help me cope with it. So much for that! A bunch of friends and I all went to Disneyland once and even though we were all adults we had a really wonderful time, it's great that there is a place the whole family can enjoy together! One night at our hotel we saw the fireworks going off and spontainiously started singing softly "When you wish upon a star..." All these years later it is one of our fondest memories. I know you will have that kind of a wonderful time, you all so deserve that happy time together to just have fun and make memories you will always smile about, inside yourselves or together! And you are right Erin, even the car trip together with your anticipation will be so much fun! We look forward to hearing all about it when you return! With Love, Karen

Some of you are saying just delete the rude comments, that would work great if they could be deleted before they were read. In order to know what it says it has to be read and no one is strong enough to just let repeted attacks flow off their backs. Don't fault her for posting their email, it sounds like she was at the end of what she could take and had to do something. It is not our place to judge. We can not say what we would do if we were someone elae because we haven't had their experiances.

Erin, So sorry someone has brought you pain and sorrow through the internet when you and Jake have been so open and generous with your time and updates. You know your purpose better than anyone. You live with them and for them. God blesses special people with special children. I know it's hard to understand why anyone would or should judge you harshly. All I can say is, "Let go and let God". Hit the delete button. Remember there are an abundance of us that hold you and your family up in great esteem. Have a wonderful Disney vacation! Can't wait for the pictures! Cathy

I know I just sent a note, but I have another one. This one is for the person who has been bothering you-apparently even though they "don't approve or like you", they are obsessed enough about you to follow your life.... Dear miserable human- What a small person you must be to attack a family who lives to walk daily in love, devotion and trust in God. Sadly, you're misguided into thinking that you make yourself a bigger person by trampling on others. I feel very sad for you and your empty heart and soul- I will add you to my daily prayers and ask that God forgives your selfish and ugly self. You must truly be a miserable and unhappy person to try to bring others down to your level. Don't worry- God loves you too and if you reach out to Him like this family does- you too will understand the joy and blessings of God's love just like the Herrin family does on a daily basis. You see, what you don't understand about our God is that His Word says that He won't give us more than we can handle.... it is apparent why God gave these 5 children to the Herrins and not to you. WE ALL could learn a thing or two about devotion and faith from this family. They are one of the richest families I've ever known-and personal possesions have nothing to do with it. Income, support, gifts, awards and all the other "extras" that have come to the Herrins are just the extra fluff in thier lives; they have not asked for those things, but our Father has bestowed these things upon them for thier faithfulness and devotion to Him and the gift of the children that He gave to them. I pray that you will be humbled and rise above yourself soon. -In Christ, Sue

I just wanted to wish your girls a happy, belated birthday! I would NEVER try and tell you what you should or shouldn't do regarding the nasty messages because I have NEVER been in your shoes. But I would suggest taking your email off your page and people can contact you through this site only. Most everyone I know has a junk-email account that they use for online purchases and registering for things online that they have to use an email account for. Anyone wishing to contact you personally could leave an email address (that is not their main personal one) in the guestbook and then you could contact them back if you were so led. Unfortunately there are far too many people in this world that think they know better than you do when it comes to raising your family. You are doing a great job and the kids are adorable! Enjoy life!!

Your family rocks. It is the work of the enemy to try and destroy what blessings God provides us. Your family and your trials have filled your lives with blessings (and ours too for being allowed to share in all this with you). Remember who you all are in Christ and just understand that it comes with the territory to be attacked. If God didn't have such amazing plans for you and all your children-satan wouldn't be working so hard to tear you down. You Go Herrins!

Erin .. while it makes me upset to read you are having problems with someone sending you nasty emails, I don't think it's appropriate for you to be posting their email address. Just because someone can't be nice to you, doesn't mean they don't have their right to privacy. There are other things you can do to hopefully stop them from continuing (i.e. report them to their internet service provider). I hope you and your family are doing well. May you all have a safe and happy vacation to Disney! Your whole family is wonderful. Please do not let anyone ruin what you have going.

Hi Erin I have been reading your updates, you are a truly amazing woman, many people faced by what is your daily routine, would have gone under. Yet you manage to not only see good in your family but offer strength to others. You are right you have a truly amazing family. They all lead such active lives a major feat without all the hospital visits and stays. I hope you all remain in good health, and the planned surgerys go as well if not better than you think. You are a truly inspirational family. Remember to take care of yourself and short time outs so you stay strong. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Having followed your children's story from their surgery I feel like I know you and them and love hearing how well they're doing. You are great parents and these children and all your children are so lucky to have you. I love your family picture, too! I wish you all great luck and great health in the future. P.S.

Herrin Family - you continue to have my admiration and prayers. After all this time I STILL check out the website every few weeks for updates and news of Kendra and Maliyah. They have touched so many people around the world - don't let the few bad apples spoil things for you. These few angry and unhappy people lose out so much by not sharing in the vicarious joy your family has brought to millions around the world. I also appreciate how you love ALL your children and give them the space on the website they deserve as well. Thank you! And my very best wishes to all of you for a lovely vacation.

AT LEAST NOW THEY HAVE TV'S FOR THE KIDS TO WATCH, WE RODE A TOTAL OF 36 HOURS WITH THEM , AND NEITHER MY HUSBAND OR MYSELF LIKED TO DRIVE AT NIGHT, SO WE LOVED IT WHEN THEY FELL ASLEEP FOR A NAP. ONE TIME WE EVEN TOOK ONE OF MY DAUGHTERS FRIENDS WITH US WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT 16, WHAT A CRAMPED RIDE IN AN OLD SMALLER MINIVAN. I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT......JUST ENJOY, YOU DESERVE IT!!!!!!!!

I am so happy to see all the progress the girls are making and how the rest of the family are doing despite all the attention given to Kendra and Maliyah. May you continue going strong and may you continue to have the strength to go through with all the corrective surgery you still have a ahead.

Dearest Herrin Family, I am sorry that people are sending you nasty emails and wish I could fix it but I can't. People are people. I personally think you are all doing great. You are a great family and I admire the strength, love and courage you have. To those people that want to complain and cause problems...just ignore them! They are jealous and envious of the wonderful family you have. Post their messages and let your many fans handle their crap. I don't know anyone that is the perfect parent although we strive to be. All we can do is try our best. If we love our children and do what we can I think that is all our God asks for. Your children are wonderful and you and your husband are great parents. You have had a rough time on more than one occasion and have come through with flying colors. I myself honor you and keep you all in my prayers. So those people that have to be nasty...may God bless you and teach you what you need to learn. Thank you!

I don't think asking people to email the poster of the offending email is the correct way to go. Think about it. We would be subjecting our own email into the hands of folks who are possibly spammers. I would just recommend deleting and ignoring the negative comments. They aren't worth the time and energy of a response.

There's always one lunatic in the bunch! Dwell on your family and don't give them the time of day or let them think that it unnerves you. This type of person thrives on setting things in motion to upset someone and then turns it into a sick pleasure. You have too many positive people rooting for you to let them get you down. Continue to enjoy the kids cause they grow up so fast! Enjoy life and remember SPRING is only a few days away LOL! Renee

Real life isn't as complex at our house as at the Herrin's, but I've been too busy to check in and see how you are all doing! Children are a blessed trial, and it's never going to be boring. You are certainly blessed with beautiful kids and a large and loving family! We send prayers for your well-being, today and every day, from my family to yours!

Erin, I know its hard but don't let those rude people get to you. What they are doing is a sign of their insecurity in themself to have to lash out at others to try and make themself feel good. You certainly don't deserve it. I admire you so much for how you and Jake have handled all the challenges in your life. God gave Maliyah and Kendra to you two because he knew the kind of parents you would be. Take care.

So sorry to hear some people or person is stooping so low as to enter rude coments. It is very hard and frustrating I am sure but to retaliate I do not think is the answer. This would just give them attention. Just continue to pray for strngth no one knows what you or any other family totaly goes through. I totaly admire your stength and your faith you are my inspiration. Many times when going through a trial I think of your family and all your faith through all the trials you have and have had. Thanks always for updates on the family, I check often for them. I think it takes great courage to share with the world a lot of what you are going through. Keep up the GOOD WORK AND GOOD ATTITUDE. Ask our heavenly father for help in everything as you have done in the past and try not to let the rude people bother you. I remeber you in my prayers. I know the Buckles family had some bad coments too, that is so sad. Both of you are special people we need more like you in our world.

Erin and Dad, I agree with Kelly..in N.Y. even though I did myself write the aol person and just said.. grow up.. find something positive to do with your time. But.. to go the the lower level is not what we want. As soo many others have said.. Thank-you for sharing your family with us.. and we always send extra blessings to the whole family. I, like many folks love to read the updates and keep in touch in our own way. I LOVE to bake and would LOVE to send you all some goodies.. I am sure you stay busy and don't get to bake as much as you might like to. Don't let the smallness of others effect all the good you create. Thanks and blessings to you all.

Hi! I can't imagine someone leaving ful comments. The story of your family has been such an inspiration to so many people! A story of hope in such a difficult situation! I'm sure there are hundreds of people who love you and your family who you don't even know! Thank you for making your lives "public." I have enjoyed watching your precious children grow. Don't let the small number of negatives outweigh the gigantic number of people who love and are praying for you daily. Thinking of you all, Lisa

You are such wonderful people, and the majority of us out here know that! Unfortunately, there will always be ignorant people who decide to spew hatred. Keep your heads up and continue to take the high road. You are loved by many!!! Lots of love, The Buckles Family

I have been reading about the plight of you and your family since the girls have been seperated and the story has been an inspiration to me as I am sure it has others. I do not understand why people have to be so mean and cruel as to send rude emails, but I am guessing that they have no life so since they are miserable they would like everyone else to be as well. God Bless you and your family and don't worry about what those people with too much time on their hands have to say.

About your request to email rude things to the people who have been attacking you--I don't know that it is worth it to strike back. These people aren't worth anyone's time, and writing mean things to them doesn't make anything better. You know that you have the support of people all over the world, and that you have been doing a great job for all of your children, so don't worry about small-minded people. It's not worth it to strike back, and only puts you at their level.

sorry again to hear about your email problems. to the people who post random comments, like typing gibberish, talking about there own life, talking about elections, telling you what to do, or just making no sense, please stop. even though you are not being rude, it is annoying and unessecary. dont waste your time is you have nothing important to say. also to the people correcting erin's grammar or spelling, she is busy, don't bug her. youd make a few mistakes if you were as busy as she was. remember nobody's perfect. and were just human.

Erin, you are an amazing woman and your family is blessed to have you. The children are wonderful and I enjoy reading about their progress. As for rude people, I think you've done exactly the right thing by shining a light on their rudeness. Unpleasant people like that thrive in darkness. Maybe they'll be mortified enough by all the attention that they will grow up, or go crawl in a hole and disappear. Good luck on the surgeries and Happy Birthday to you. I will keep the girls in my thoughts.

Hang in there. For every one nasty person on this earth there are thousands of wonderful people. It is a shame that they have nothing better in this world than to be negative. A glass half full is better than a glass half empty anyday. We should all take the hand that has been dealt to us and make the best of it. I pray that God will continue to bless you and your family with good, strong, supportive people. Always remember, always be yourself, because the people who mind don't matter and the people how matter don't mind. Much love and best wishes! Happy Easter!

Erin and Jake, Don't let the few idiots get you guys down. You both are so strong and a great inspiration to us all. If this person keeps harrassing you try blocking him or her and if that doesn't work, I would try contacting the police. I had to do that because I had an internet stalker who would constantly change email addresses when I would block one. AGAIN, DON'T LET THIS BOZO GET YOU DOWN!

Erin, I am sorry you are being harassed by a few rude people. Have you tried blocking their email addresses? These people usually feed off the attention they get from being this way and sometimes blocking them and making no response is the best route. You could also try reporting them to their ISP, they could lose their internet account for harassment. Hope you had a wonderful birthday! So glad your family is going to Disney together. What a long way you've come in the last couple years. We continue to keep all of you in our prayers. God bless you all! Richard and Teresa

Well, Happy Birthday Mom!! I have been reading your updates and following the Families progress for years now. I am soo amazed at all the uphill roads that have crossed your paths.. yet you struggle and work and take care of everyone. I'm sure you must know that God has a very special place for each and everyone of us.. I think that when we meet our struggles head-on and tackle them .. we get a little stronger.. understand a little more and become just a little more thankful. If there was anything I could teach the world.. it would be to be thankful and love everyone.. for everyone fights an inner battle. Good luck and I'll say extra prayers for the girls surgeries.. your vacation and your continued strength!! Love to all of you!! Lynn XOXOXO

Happy birthday girls! I know that today is a special day for you! 6 is a great age. I have a sweet little friend that turned 6 on January 25th and she thinks she is a big girl now! She has a way of melting my heart just like the two of you. I look forward to hearing about you'll and I really appreciate your Mom & Dad keeping us updated. I pray that both of you will continue to grow as quickly as you have seemed to in the past 2 years. Happy Birthday and God Bless you both and your family!!!!!

Hello again to the whole family. A special Happy Birthday to Kendra and Maliyah! Birthdays are so exciting, don't forget to make a wish before you blow the candles out girls!!! I was wondering if the girls remember being conjoined or ever refer to it. Please ignore that question if it is too personal for them. They are getting old enough to have their own ideas and feelings about all that has happened with them. It sounds to me like they are busy enough just thinking about what is happening in the busy lives of their whole family at the moment. Also Courtney sounds pretty busy, I can imagine her dancing and how graceful she is. She just has that quality that showed in the Christmas pictures. I always look forward to hearing about her along with the twins. She is surely the kind of big sister that the twins really look up to and try to emulate. Of course the young boys give all three little brothers to cuddle and laugh with. What a houseful of fun and laughs it must be, along with the struggles of fitting every day's activities into 24 hours! (not to mention the dog too...) Hope grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and other friends and family are all well. Am looking forward to hearing all about the birthday celebration! With Love, Karen

Congratulations on all the progress your children have made. What a great accomplishment it will be to have the girls wearing underwear. I am sure it will help the girls feel better about themselves in the years to come. Praying always for your special family. Your family has been thru a lot and come so far. I want to say CONGRATULATIONS! Thanks again for all the updates and pictures, I love reading them. I can't wait for your book to come out, I have already requested a copy.

Dear Erin, Thank you for the update today. Sure hate that your precious girls need surgery again, but REMEMBER there are those of out here who really do love and care about you and your family and we will be holding you up in prayer. God has been so good to your family and He will not fail you nor forsake you. Glad Maliyah made it through the dentist also. I remember how terrified I was going to the dentist as a youngster also.

I agree with you whole-heartedly. Kids these days have enough to be worried about, a children's dentist is a wonderful thing. They are prepared for nervous kids and yet know exactly how to deal with their fears. My kids are now 12 and 10, and they NEVER worry about going to the dentist, they actually like it.

I had an incident similar to your ghost email as well. It was the one where you watch a car driving up a hill, very peaceful, and then a scary face jumps up on the screen. My daughter, who was about 5 at the time, was in tears. I felt so bad about it. I'm glad to hear Maliyah had no ill effects from it. I hope everything continues to go well for you and your wonderful family. I check your website just about every day to see how everyone is doing, and to get a morning 'uplift'. By the way, did you ever find out what happened with Austin? That would've scared me to death. May God continue to watch over you and yours, and know that my prayers are always with you.

Just got the computer back up and running and thought to check in. I will continue to pray for you and the girls and school situation. I also will pray for Courtney and her upcoming performance. The back surgery is a long one and nasty. Not as nasty as the separation. YOu will get through this and God will carry you with strength you didn't know you have. I am so looking foreword to the book. How nice of you.

Hey Erin, It's Loni from Sheer Indulgence!! I actually found your website because I was reading up on Charlie Christensen's blog and saw that you had mentioned him on your blog. What a small world. I hope all is well, I haven't seen you in a while! My baby girl is already four months old, so it has been forever! Happy Valentines Day and you better get in the salon soon even if it is to just say "hi" I miss you! Lots of Love! Loni

Happy Valentine's Day! I just discovered that your girls share a birthday with the Buckles twins, also formerly conjoined twins. How ironic. I'm sure you know it already, but what an interesting coincidence! Happy Birthday in a few weeks, K & M! You guys are so cute.

Hello --- I must have missed something but when is M&K having surgery? Are they having problems? I sure hope it isn't serious. I think of your beautiful family every day but haven't checked out this site in about 2 weeks - so I think I missed something. Please update the surgery --- I will keep them in my prayers and hope all goes well and that it is not serious. I will continue to keep your family in my thoughts and prayers!!! God Bless!!

Hi Kendra and Malihay, I here you are excited about your birthday coming. Guess what? My birthday is February 26th too. I don't get quite as excited as you do anymore because I am much,much older than you are. I will be 67 years old this year. I want you to know how very special you are and how happy you make me by reading your web pages. I am always happy when you and your family are doing well and when I know that you are happy. You are very wonderful, special, girls. A friend in Illinois, Cindy Felix

Sorry to hear about trouble at school. your family is TOUGH and will get through this. I know you will keep up with the problem and that is the best thing, that parents stay involved. Sometimes you have to be kind of pushy just to be heard! You know what is right for your family and do a great job. You are in my prayers, bless all of you.

You know your girls better than anyone else in the whole world and you know best what they need. I worked in Special Ed and I know that kids who have parents fighting for them always do the best. If you say it enough times, it will eventually get through. Keep your chin up!

your family has been in my thoughts and prayers and i'll make sure to pray that whatever is going on at school concerning k&m gets resolved soon in a way that's good for them. (and also for k's surgery). i pray that the problem at school isnt due to kids being mean or rude over them being different. i used to get harassed at school simply because i have always been a tomboy and didnt care for things like the backstreet boys (who were huge back then) or wearing makeup. good did come out of those years of harassment in that it lead to my faith and my personal relationship with God becoming MUCH, MUCH STRONGER. i highly doubt that my faith would be as strong as it is today if i didnt go through those tough years first.

I am sorry to hear that conflict at school is causing so much stress. Hopefully it will resolve soon in the girls best interest. Seems the person who suggested checking with an advocacy group has a good way to look into some help with this. Also higher up in the school system. I sure hope this becomes just an unpleasant memory soon. Nice to hear that otherwise everyone is doing so well, more surgery isn't something to look forward to now but if it helps it will be worthwhile in the long run, as you so well know. With Love, Karen

Hi Erin, Sorry that the girls may have to go through more surgery.But, I sure know that will be troopers!Yes kids say the darndest things. If the girls are having problems in school. You can call an advocacy agency that works with kids with disabilities they'd love to help K&M. I'd love to help.Hopefully,all else is well. Remember,God sends the best in life.

Erin and Jake, Thank You for this recent update. PLEASE KNOW that our prayers are with you. It is always so difficult when we see our children suffering in any way and when we see them facing any kind of surgery we always would rather put ourselves through it than see them endure it. We know you always make the best decisions for them. Our prayers for all of you continue. God Bless. The Bible says "Joy Comes In The Morning" Friends in Illinois, Earl and Cindy Felix

Boy, you guys don't update for awhile and then everything happens at once, it seems. Of course, I haven't had a computer for over a month to check on you. I hope everything's okay with Austin and it wasn't anything serious. That would be scary. I love the title and cover of your book. I think the title is great because there's more than one way to be joined at the heart and your girls are, in the true sense of the word. I love your family photo taken at the church, I assume, at Courtney's baptism. That is so great.

Hi Herrin Family, I hadn't had a chance to check the site out in a month or so and am glad to hear that Courtney's surgery went well and that Kendra and Maliyah and the boys are doing well also! (I hope Austin's situation turned out to be nothing serious!!) LOVE it that you guys are working on a book--I think it will touch a lot of lives! Speaking of touching lives...there is a family that was featured on Extreme Home Makeover that could use your prayers.... The team built a house for the Byers family in Oregon. Rob, Rachel and their children Jenessa "Boey" Nicole, and boys Chris and Joe. Little "Boey" was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer rhabdomyosarcoma but she had such faith! Boey passed into the arms of her Savior on Dec. 28th 2007 and her parents and family could use your prayers and support. You can visit their website at www.jenessabyers.com Thanks, Lori

I am glad to hear the Herrins are all doing well. I am very excited for the book too. I wanted to ask a favor of the Herrins....one of my very closest friends lives in a small town called Granite City Illinois. We just found out a couple of weeks ago that her seven year old cousin, Hannah, has Leukemia. Please add Hannah to your prayer list. She is an amazing little girl and going to do great, but we all know what amazing results we can get from a little faith and prayer. Here is a link to Hannah if you want to learn more about her. She is in St. Louis Childrens Hospital. Many thanks and best wishes for your family. www.caringbridge.org then a slash, word visit, another slash, hannahbrumley

I am excited for the book to come out, but the title is misleading, since they weren't actually joined at the heart. People who don't know of your amazing daughters would be led astray by the title. I like the idea that someone else on here left, the title being "Born As One, The Inspiring Life of Kendra and Maliyah" Food for thought ! Have a great day, I'm glad Austin is doing better!!

Motherhood is hard, but you truly have so much more to deal with than the average mother. And what amazes me the most about you is you can tell us about your son throwing up bright red blood and then ask everyone to pray for Charlie! God could not have given your children to a better person to care for them. I'm sure there are times you must fell like pulling your hair out, but you seem to get through the day with all your family's activites and still put the needs of others in front of yours. You are truly an inspiration to us all. I'll say a prayer for Charlie, another for your family and a third that I can stop sweating the small stuff and realize my blessings. Cathy

Hi, I don't mean to be out of line, just a soft comment, what about including the girls names in place of Herrrin Twins in the title of your book. They have such beautiful names and I think it would capture more interest in the story of their inspirational lives. Best of luck to you all in your book writing and plaease continue as you have time to delight us with your wonderful updates and photos. =) Kendra

I've only commented once, but I must say.. I love coming here to check up on the girls and your family and see how well everyone is doing. I'm loving the idea of the book, I will most definately be getting it once it is published and released. I do have one small suggestion though.. I love the title, but I think it would sound a lot more persoanl (like you're really seeing into their world) if it was '...the inspiring saga of Kenda and Maliyah Herrin' versuse just 'the Herrin Twins.' (Hope you don't mind the suggestion.) The recent pics are super cute.. thanks so much for updating us all on your family both with pics and the written updates.

Just had another comment - remember when you took the girls on the rides in the Summer to accustom them to more experiences? I forced my four year old onto some rides (she is a wild kid and I was sure she would love it) she fought against it but when the ride was over she was first in line to go again!! Enjoy all the new experiences with your girls and unless they are hysterical and shaking with terror go ahead and have the girls join in!!

Get a kidney removed is a serious operation that is hard for anyone at any age to recover from. Getting a hernia repared is a much simpler procedure fortunately for Courtney. Erin did very well for loosing a kidney. You can't compare one to the other.

I have been reading your site for a while now, and I feel kind of like I am intruding on your family, but, I am also an incredibly nosey person. 19 months ago, I had my son, my third child ( my only son, and I am sure you know the difference between boys and girls! He scares the wits out of me! Wouldnt trade him for the world, but man does he terrify me), but three weeks before he was born, there was a set of conjoined twins born in my area, Meteo and McHale Shaw. (they were technically born in D.C, but they live here) So, I have a HUGE soft spot for babies, I am just a sucker, so I started reading up on them and other familys. Again, nosey and looking for a way to help I guess. I have noticed a trend, and your family is part of it. You guys are SO STRONG. I mean, I am sure that you cry, and get mad, but you are so positive. I have never really been one for faith, always thought that God listens no matter where you are when you talk to him. But my faith never really went beyond that. Where do you get it from? Where does the stregnth come from? If you could bottle it, and send me some, I would really appreciate it! I am so happy to hear that your children are happy and healthy. Sarah

First, I'm thrilled that everyone in your home is doing so well. I wanted to write my suggestion for your laundry, I have six children, 2 girls and 4 boys, we have lots of laundry, and after working on my system, it's much easier now. I don't know if it'll work for you but I figured I would share it. First,the socks, each child gets one kind of white socks, they have them gold stripes at Target, or grey soles, or pink or lavendar around the edge, whatever works for you but toss all their white socks and then buy each child enough in the same style so you can make it a little longer than a week, then the matching is much easier. Do the same with the dark socks, pick a style for each child and that's the style they get, if the girls want cute patterns then they have to match them, it saves so much time. Next, each child has their own identifiable laundry basket line them up and then do clothes laundry for two days in a row each week, wash the clothes and as you take them out of the dryer sort them into the basket, at the end of the two days you are done for the week, don't touch clothes laundry again until the next week, you can pick one other day to do towels and sheets if you didn't get them finished in the two days but it saves so much on the sorting and putting away time, if you do it and finsih for the week. Hope my system helps you. I pray for your family. God Bless You All, Always.

CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING NOMINATED FAMILY OF THE YEAR!!! I am so happy to hear that everyone is doing so well. Personally I think that all children are a blessing from God but your girls especially becanuse of all that they have endured. I am a firm believer in the thought that God doesn't give you more than you can handle. Just remember that when things get tough! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

Hello Again Herrin's, So glad to hear everyone has recovered so well from the surgery. I wish I was closer and could do that laundry for you! (To Marianne and anyone else I may have offended, I too come here to keep up with the Herrin's. If you notice in a recent update Erin was so nice to ask me to let her know how I was doing, not even knowing more than that I have chronic kidney failure. I had to answer here as it is the only way I know how to tell her about it. Perhaps I went overboard with the details.) Anyway I am so very very thrilled the surgery's went well. I find the whole Herrin Family inspiring too, I think they are such a great example of how much it means to be upbeat no matter what. Erin and Scott, it is very meaningful to see your example of what love, faith and family can do to make life a joy no matter how great the challenges. With Love, Karen

Erin I am very proud of your bravery. You are a very strong lady. Your children will grow up to be very strong adults because of the example you have put before them. Both of my children have had very minor surgeries, but as you say it is still very scary. I have been a basket case both times. You are the hero! To be so strong raising 5 children and with all the surgeries and you yourself having a major one with Kendra.

I'm always amazed at how well you all seem to get through all that is thrown at you. Your faith and family is strong. I had to laugh out loud when you said Kendra woke up MAD. Good for her! Cathy

I am so glad to hear that your girls both did well. I am totally with you guys for letting your kids tell you how they feel, anyway they can. That is one of the healthiest things you can do for them, and for you!!!!!!! Having had children with health problems, I know how hard it is on us moms (& Dads too). I have cried along with my babies too. Good job Courtney for being so brave. Remember that you will feel a little bit better each day. By next week this time, you will feel much, much better. Kendra you were so brave too. You have been through so much in your young life, what a strong person you are. Good job!! Take care of yourselves, Herrin family. Thanks for taking the time to update us, I appreciate your time. Martha

P.S. TO ERIN, I FORGOT, [SINCE YOU ASKED] THERE IS AN EVEN BETTER VERSION OF THE PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT ON ARPKD-CHF ON "YOU TUBE", CALLED "FACES OF ARPKD-CHF" WHICH IS ACTUALLY SUPPOSED TO BE A FORWARD SLASH BUT IT WON'T LET ME PUT THAT SYMBOL HERE. I KNOW YOU WOULD BE TOUCHED BY IT ERIN AND SCOTT, TO SEE ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL YOUNG CHILDREN WHO LOOK HEALTHY BUT HAVE THIS VERY SERIOUS KIDNEY AND LIVER DISEASE. AGAIN, THANK YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH FOR ASKING. IF ANYONE HERE LOOKS AT IT ON "YOU TUBE", THEY WILL SEE WHAT YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED, PARENTS WITH THEIR BABIES OR YOUNG CHILDREN IN HOSPITAL BEDS OR AT HOME PLAYING. AGAIN, WITH LOVE, KAREN

Dear Erin, I just checked your updates and was so startled to hear you talking to me! You are amazing to take the time with all that is going on, thank-you, you made me cry with your concern. You asked me to let you know how I am doing, perhaps you wouldn't mind my saying that I have a rare genetic kidney-liver disease and am one of the oldest known survivors. {I'm 55 in April} I am a participant in a long-term study on this disease(called ARPKD-CHF) at the National Institute of Health in Maryland. There is a website called ARPKD-CHF ALLIANCE if anyone else wants to check this out, started and run by the mom of a young boy with it. She is amazing too. You can read my little story there along with others. Anyway I've had Dr.'s ask me is there a shorter name for it and I have to tell them "That IS the shorter name!" There is a short video there of the beautiful children with this for which there is no treatment or cure yet, just a transplant for some is possible. I do so appreciate what you did for your daughter by giving her a kidney. If only more caring people would consider being a donor now or later... there are so many needed that the waiting list is years, and most don't have the time to wait. It's sad. Thank God you were a match. The Alliance is not funded by anyone other than donations and is the only organization in the world dedicated only to this rare disease. My Dr. at NIH said the incidence is approximately one in twenty to fourty thousand, so I tell everyone that makes me special! {smile} I also tell everyone that ARPKD-CHF means I glow in the dark! I wanted to say that Grandmame from Wyoming had a suggestion on potty training that I know worked for my nephew when he was little, he loved baseball and I found some tiny boy's underwear with balls and mitts and bats on it for his birthday that year, he wanted to wear them so bad that he was dry from then on! I am looking forward to hearing how Courtney is doing, but I can wait as long as it takes for you to find the time to let us know, you just keep on doing whatever your family needs and worry about all of us last, O.K.? We are grateful that you find time for us at all, and can "wait till the cows come home" as they say. Courtney, I have three younger sisters and always thought it would be so nice to have an older sister too, one just like you. I see you in the pictures and how wonderful an older sister you are. I admire and love you for that so much. I know the surgery itself is not fun but you will feel better every day. The sisters you have been there for will be pleased for the chance to return that concern and care. Not to mention two brothers! Say hello to your dad for me too O.K.? Thanks again Erin - more than I can say. With Love, Karen

I have been following your website-updates since just before the girls surgeries. I check it daily and am glad when there is good news to report. I hope and pray that Courtney's surgery goes well. Tell her that my daddy just had one hernia repaired two days ago and he said it hurt but that it hurts less and less each day afterwards. Courtney - Be strong because I know you are brave. I have three little girls I know they would be proud to have you for a friend. Tickle your brothers and sisters for me when you are feeling better, so they will laugh. Through the updates mommy and daddy put on the website, I can tell you are a happy girl and like to hear laughter too. Hugs to you and your family. Vicky, Jennifer, Rachel and Hannah

I too, like so many others, check your site often. My life isn't half as busy as yours, and I still wouldn't be able to keep up a posting to the world! Just that you find the time periodically is amazing and appreciated. We will (and should) wait on your time schedule and be delighted to hear anything. Even if you only have time to ask for prayer occasionally- we'll all be here for you... isn't that what love is? Love is patient, it is kind, it is not about what you get, it's about what you give. We know you have love for us all too, but love doesn't have expectations; that's what makes it so great and unique in this world. I'm sure most will agree with me that we love your family so much to say- no pressure, we're here whenever you have a minute. Best of luck to the girls today. They are being lifted up by millions of prayers- so expect good things. Thank you for the inspiration from one mom to another. You are a friend to so many even though you haven't met us all-thanks for your willingness to be a vessel in this world. -Sue in Wisconsin wife and mom to three

You seemed to be so calm and she clearly loves you dearly. I wish both of your girls good luck today with their surgery and I wish you all of the peace and strength that you need. I can only imagine what it is like to go through this as much as you have. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I have followed your family for years now. I became so intrigued with you all and the obstacles you have come to face. I admire you and wish you nothing but the very best for your family. I was reading about the kidney reflux. My daughter is 4 and she had developed TONS of kidney infections and UTI's. Some would give her fevers of 107.0 Finally they determined the cause and simply went in and stretched her urethra and so far all has been well. No other infections have come about. So I know somewhat how you feel about that situation. I can't wait until you all have a book. I think it is admirable and I commend you for sharing your family with the world. It's not personal gain, it's public knowledge. That's the only way to look at it in my opinion. God Bless you and your family.

Dear Herrin Family, Thank you for continuing to share your amazing family on your web-site. I really enjoy your updates, because they are filled with motivation, inspiration, love and are very spiritual. I have always thought of Courtney as the #1 big sister, setting the example for Kendra, Maliyah, Justin and Austin. My prayers will be especially for Courtney, for her to recover from surgery and quickly return to the things she loves to do. Congratulations, Courtney, on your recent baptisim. Best wishes for many blessings for the Herrin Family in 2009! Brother Jim Barnes

Hey Courtney! I hope your surgery goes well and that you recover quickly so you don't miss too much time off school. Hopefully you wont be in hospital for too long, after a few nights in the hospital I'm sure you will be excited about going home! Stay strong, I'm praying for you. Thanks for the updates you have posted in the last week or so! Your children are so special and I love reading the updates on your family I also like how you keep us updated on how you are all doing and not just kendra and Maliyah as some people with websites set up for their children do

I hope both surgeries go well tomorrow. I hope Courtney is treated like a queen, for a day or two. There is a great messageboard with lots of families going through various stages of treatment for Kidney Reflux. This comment section isn't letting me post a link to the messageboard. Please let me know if you'd like the link. I don't think anyone has experience with a transplanted kidney, however. There is good information on the list that describes how kidney reflux can damage kidney tissue, over time, and how infections play into the treatment options. I'm very happy to hear the urologists are willing to try Deflux for her. I hope it is 100 percent successful! I've been a silent lurker, keeping up with your updates. I've also been at PCMC with my son some of the same times you've been there. I'm not stalking you, I promise. I wish your family continued best wishes for a Very Happy and Healthy New Year!

I wanted to tell you that I Hope Courtney's Surgery goes great. I had a little surgery when I was her age. It is scary when you get there and change into the gown to go and breathe the gas. But, I can promise you, It will be okay. I was scared to have my surgery, and when I woke up, I was sore, but the pain went away soon with the medicine doctors gave me. It was scary for me to have the surgery done, but I have been doing well. I am now 14(my birthday was the 30th of december) so the surgery was when I was in second grade. It is great to see how much better you feel when you have the surgery. You will be in pain, But it will go away after a few days. I also Hope that Kendra's procedure goes great and that things go well tomorrow! Love, Brynn

Thanks for the update. We will be saying a special prayer for Courtney tonight and tomorrow. Courtney---my daughter who is almost 9, says to tell you that she hopes you feel better really fast after your surgery and to cuddle with your mom if it hurts (that's what she does whenever she is sick or hurting). We will also be praying for all the kids and mom and dad too. Sometimes it is hard on us parents too. Take care. Thanks for letting us into your lives. Martha

Glad to hear from you. Good Luck to all and the Best to all of us for 2008. As for those who commented that others are "demanding" updates....it is not demanding updates - Remember we have all been drawn and pulled into their lives in one way or the other and don't like the feeling of being dropped like a hot potato. When they asked for our prayers we were here, etc. so a minute out of a busy life is not too much to ask for. Good luck to Courtney

thanks for the update! Sounds as though everyone is doing well and is pretty healthy which is awesome! I hope Courtney's surgery goes well, keep us updated on how it goes please! And also it is a pretty good thing that she is excited about her surgery! It does seem kind of strange, but it would be so hard on you all if she was nervous and upset and crying about her operation. Then you would have to reasure her that she would be fine! Sorry to hear about Grandma Herrin's broken leg, thats pretty nasty. Well thanks again for the update, I hope you post new pictures soon, your children are so beautiful I love looking at the pictures of them ;) Sending you all lots of love and prayers, Lucy.

I'm so glad to hear that everyone is handling things well. Sorry to hear about Courtney. My daughter had a double inguinal hernia and surgery when she was 5 years old. It's amazing how quickly kids bounce back. Her dad carried her to her bed when we got home and by the next day she was walking around and feeling fine, just a little sore and couldn't stand up straight. I read your site frequently. Your kids are amazing. May you all have a happy and healthy new year.

It was nice to hear how you are all doing. I will say a prayer for Courtney's surgery and will add her to our church's prayer list. While I like reading your updates, I do understand how busy life is with small children (I have 3 girls, 8yrs, 6yrs, and 2yrs) so I understand the delay between them. I was reading some other people's posts and would like to remind everyone that your posts are a privilege for us to read, not a requirement for you to write. Thank you for taking time to give us a little insight into your world!!!! Have a wonderful new year with the best of health for everyone. Martha

To Kendra and Maliyah and your amazing family, I heard of your story all the way over here in Australia just over twelve months ago when you underwent your separation surgery. As a proud Aunty to twin girls that are slightly younger and just as precious as the both of you I endeavoured to find out more about your story and a way to check in on your progress to find out how you were going. That's how I came to find this site. I can't tell you both just how precious, how adorable, how brave, how strong and how simply amazing you both are. I can't tell you how much I admire the amazing dedication of your parents who have shown the world what true and unconditional love and faith is. Your gorgeous big sister is the best big sister anyone could hope for and those cute little brothers of yours must bring so much fun into your lives. My twin nieces have some medical issues and one day when they were getting scared about one of their upcoming doctors appointments I told them all about two brave and amazing twins named Kendra and Maliyah and told them all about you both and all about how brave you've been. They wanted to see pictures of you both so I told I brought them round to my house and showed them your website and some of your pictures. They couldn't believe all the clever things that you can do and they told me that when they went to the doctors they were going to be brave like "Kendra and Liyah" (they can't quite say your name properly yet Maliyah but they're practising!). Their Nanna told me that when the doctor went to give them their needles they kept saying they wanted to be brave like you two and for the very first time they didn't cry when having their needles all because they wanted to be brave like you girls. The only thing that made them sad was that you live so far away because they really want to be your friend and have you come over to play with them so I had to explain that you live too far away and could only get here on a very long plane ride. I also want you to know that the two of you and your family also inspire big people as well. I am very sick myself and some days are really hard for me. On those days I often turn my computer on and come on to your site. Reading all about how strong you are and how hard you try at everything makes me stronger and makes me harder. Seeing your photos ALWAYS puts a smile on my face - you're such cuties. I'm an awful lot older than you two but the both of you have taught me so much and I have learnt some very valuable lessons about life, love, strength, courage and faith from you both. To the Herrin family as a whole, you have given me and no doubt countless others the most priceless of gifts - that is the gift of the miracles that can come from hope and the possibilties that come with faith.

hi Jake and Erin, am simply overwhelmed! u two are the most amazing parents in the world! the amount of love u showed your children was enough to carry them through their most difficult time. Your children Kendra and Maliyah went through alot, and so did you, but u did not give up, even when one of the girls remained without a kidney after the op, you didnt lose hope, u knew there was a way, and indeed there was! your story has inspired me so greatly, and i would like to say that u are the best parents ever! should u by any chance be able to travel to Uganda, i have a small resort by the side of the most beautiful lake in the world(according to BBC),lake bunyonyi in south western Uganda, where i can host you and your kids for as long as you please to stay. God bless you so much and may he keep those little angels safe, my prayers are with you always. With love and prayers, Kate

You guys have done a wonderful job with all of your kids. Your story is very inspiring. thanks for keeping us outsiders in the loop. Lots of love and prayers.

I have no comparison to what these girls have been through in their little lives, but I can say that to be blessed with the challenges that we face in life are beyond understanding. Even for some of us, the challenges that we face have no rhyme or reason and therefore frustration and disappointment come along too. But I can honestly testify to the fact that hard work pays off and no matter what we have to face in our lives, we will receive the blessings that accompany our faith and endurance. To the Girls Remember that you are precious and amazing. Never give up on the challenges that you must face. Things might be hard, and seem unfair...but by working hard and never giving up, you can come out conquerers

I have been following the recent story of the little 2 year old girl from India who has limbs from her parastitic twin removed. She is doing remarkably well since the surgery and she has made me think of Kendra and Maliyah. I check the site at least once a week and love to read the updates and guestbook entries from around the world. I continue to give my love and support to your family, and have added the little girl from India to my list. Everyone out there, say a prayer for her to heal as well as the girls!! Happy Thanksgiving Herrin's!!!

All five of your beautiful children (and the dog!) are little gems to be proud of. Their courage and determination is inspirational and make me feel ashamed of when I complain about such insignificant things. You are amazing parents who have done their children proud. Congratulations on being such wonderful wonderful parents. One day I hope to be half the parent that you are. Wishing you all the best of health and happiness for now and forever.

I have followed your girls' progress for a long time. I love reading about your whole family. The thoughts of having 5 children is one I cannot imagine, but I think it is wonderful!! I have a good friend who has 11 children. She does very well with them and if she weren't in her early 40's, she would love to have many more. Your children are all beautiful. I am so happy and pleased for you that the girls' surgeries have all turned out well. I wish all of you the very best.

Thank you so much for your website. I check it everyday to see how your family is doing. I realy feel like you are part of my family and would do anything I could to help you. Thank you also for your recent entries. I love to hear what you are upto in everyday life as well as how the family's health is doing. These journal entries brighten my day and show me how your family is dealing with 5 children including 2 sets of twins. You are an amazing family. Heavenly Father knew He could entrust you with 5 of His most precious spirits. Your trials have been and still are some of the most difficult trials to go through on this earth and yet your faith has not been shaken and neither has your testimonies. That is why He knew He could send these noble spirits into your home. I have been blessed and my testimony has been strengthened just knowing your family's story. I thank you again for your willingness to share your lives.

I have followed your journey from the beginning, hourly during the surgery, and have prayed for your family. I still check daily and get disappointed when there are no updates for a while, but that's a good thing also, because it means there are no problems with the girls. I love seeing the pictures of those "big" smiles, (on all of your children), keep up the messages, you've got a huge carrying group of people out here!

Hi Herrin Family!!!!!!!! I am SO glad to hear that you might write a book. I am SO sure I will buy it. My mom said she will read it too. My mom is also going to write a book. She started on it yesterday. That must of been pretty funny when Maliyah said that she has a boyfriend! THAT IS SSSOOOOOOOO ADORABLE! And I LOVE the new pics. They are all getting SO BIG!!!! Courtney is a beautiful girl. She is going to be a beautiful beautiful BEAUTIFUL girl when she grows up. Anyways, how is your family doing? I am doing great. I went to the school dance last nite with some friends. It was a lot of fun! By the time courtney gets to be 12 like me, she will be going to the dances. Our school program is coming up and since I am in 6th grade i have to speak in front of people! I'm not that scared beacause I want to be an actress someday. I think courtney and the girls should be come actresses some day. I also heard you guys got to see hannah montana. SO DID I! Well in Omaha. It was fun!!!!! I can't wait to see the halloween pictures soon! GOD BLESS!

Hi Herrins! Catching up with you, the book is a wonderful idea. I believe you that there is so much to the story we have yet to hear - you are right too, the more time goes by the less details you remember. I'm glad that all the girls are doing well in school. You are right, the boys are typical two's. There are more of us still reading than you realize, so thank-you for every update. Glad everyone is feeling better after the flu bug. Erin are you feeling all healed from the transplant? My love to you all, Karen

God has truley blessed you with wonderful gifts of your children. I believe all things happen for a reason and God knew that as parents you were the perfect ones. God Bless all of you and it gives me such joy to see such happy faces on your children who have endured so much! I can see the love in the pictures. May God give you whatever your family needs to continue on. I know I will certainly keep your family in my prayers. You have to be very strong to go through all that you have in such a short period of time and I know that I do not have that kind of strength. That is why God chose the two of you and your children.

I think you guys are such an awesome family. I am amazed at the trials you have overcome. Your children are beautiful and I feel like I know your sweet girls because I have followed your journey over the years. My son Quayd is 5 and he asks about the twins all the time. So we look at your site and get an update! My son, husband and I sat at the edge of our seats during all of the major surgeries the last year or so and Quayd would pray every night for Heavenly Father to bless "those cute babies." I just want you to know what an inspiration you are to us. Thank you for so freely sharing your story with us! I am sure you get lots of messages just like mine all of the time, but know that we are sincere! If you would like to meet us, check us out at www.craftymandy.blogspot.com

I agree, way to go Amy Jones!!!! They're not looking for cutomers- they asked, and I quote, list of names and e-mail addresses of people interested in the book to "SHOW THE PUBLISHERS THE INTEREST THEIR BOOK WOULD HAVE". I think it's very inspiring and it could help other families. Isn't that what it's all about, what even God would want, helping others?

God has truely blessed your family. Today when I signed in I noticed the new pictures. They look sooo happy and healthy and beautiful! I can't help but to remember the pictures prior to and during the surgery. They have come so far and yet stayed so up beat and never gave up. They have taught me so much about staying focused on what really matters. I hope your family continues to stay strong for one another and when things seem rough, remember it "was" worse once upon a time. God Bless You!

I think you should definatley write a book. I would love to read it. You might want to consider selling over your website instead of mainstream and maybe donating some of the profits so people don't accuse you of being exploitive. I don't think it's exploitive

Meyers Family from OKC this is for you. ARE you crazy or what? This family would never do anything to hurt their girls. You are stupid to think that this family shouldn't make money off of THEIR STORY. People like Paris Hilton make money off her stories and she could of killed someone, but she makes money off that. This is an average wonderful family that wants to be able to give there history up to this point. I don't know if you read their post, but they said it doesn't matter if 100 people buy their book or if 1 million do. Why shouldn't they write a book? YOu need to keep your stupid concerns to yourself. Think before you write.

I check in own your family weekly you are an inspiration. I would greatly enjoy reading a book about your ordeal. My husband wrote one when our son had cancer and I still enjoy reading it now. He is 12 now and I am amazed each time I look at him. Because he went through so much at 10 months old with cancer and surgery then he had chemotherapy until he was 18 months old. You will enjoy the book more than anyone else because it will there for you to know that your little girls and family survived alot.

We've been praying for you and following your family's story. Asking for *prayers* is lovely and important, and you have indeed touched our hearts with your courage and family unity. However, asking for *customers* to buy your daughters' story strikes me as crass and exploitative. Write a book with your daughters when they're old enough to have a say in it; don't they deserve to get away from Oprah and 20 20 and just have a childhood? Or do you NEED the money?

A book is an excellent idea! Your family is such an inspiration to others to reevaluate their lives and priorities. For you to have conjoined twins and then follow with another set - many people would not have had the strength and faith to deal with that. I know your days have to be hectic with five young chilren (I have five myself), but your updates are always so positive and uplifting. It helps me not too "sweat the small stuff" as much. Let me know where I can sign a letter to your publisher. And be sure to include LOTS of pictures. They make my day! Cathy

It would be wonderful to write a book, maybe even do a sequel in a couple years, showing the girls doing many things that could have been impossible, before. Also, maybe focus on your other children, as well. They are just as amazing, and cute, and fun! Include lots of pictures. That would be wonderful. May you be blessed for being so patient and wonderful to all of your five children!

You HAVE to publish a book. Not only for your children to understand the trials,struggles and the joys that you as parents have gone thru and how much your enjoy each other for all of it, plus what IF there was another mom & dad struggling with the decisions you all were faced with and they read your book and you helped them, that would be worth it all

I think that writing a book would be a great idea. Very inspiring! Reading about those girls and watching them on T.V. and the internet, gives me hope that God works. Dealing with a child that has something wrong with them and it's out of your control is hard sometimes and scary. As a parent, we want to fix things with our children and when you can't fix it or make it better you have to put your child in the doctors' hands and pray to God that the doctor can help. For me, I had to let go and give it to God. My daughter has a rare lung disease and she's been in and out of the hospital herself. The doctor's really can't help her because they don't have a cure yet. They thought she wouldn't make it past 14 months old and she will be 4 in December. Right before her first birthday we had to go to the hospital for a month becase of the common cold and I remember thinking this is it, I'm going to lose her and I went to the Chapel and prayed and prayed and put it in God's hands. She's here right now because of God and only God. I don't know how much time he's going to give me with her but I'm very grateful for what I have right now. Watching your girls go through all that they have and seeing what those Doctor's did gives me hope that God still works. If it wasn't for him those Doctor's couldn't of done what they did for those babies. I feel that we're both blessed in so many ways. So, yes. I think a book would be great!It could give hope to other parents that are in our situations that don't know how to get through it. They would be able to read about a miracle in my opinion. A couple of miracles! Take care of those babies.

Fantastic idea on the book thing. I think there are so many things that you can write that can be so helpful to not only people going through what you went through, but just people that are looking for hope in their lives and to know there are miracles out there. I would love to have a book signed by both Kendra and Maliyah. I love those little girls. Please do this for us.

Hi all, sorry to hear about not feeling well. On the wonder of writing a book, I feel that it would benefit so........... many people! Your story is far too inspirational not to. You have stirred up emotions in all of us. In a world that is in many ways "cruel and unjust" you have let us all know that there is a true purpose for living!!! Each and every trial and tribulation you have faced with so much love and determination. Your faith is unending. I truly believe that miracles are gifts from God. Your family is Truly full of Miracles. Writing a book would not only share with the world "your story" it would share with the world what "miracles are all about". Good luck in all of your future endeavors! I look forward to purchasing and reading your incredible book full of miracles! Here's to the future!!!! much admiration, Lynn

Write a book? Absolutely! Be sure to include a LOT of pictures. Those ones of you all in white prior to separation are gorgeous! You are an amazing family of amazing individuals. Both the story of the girls and of how you as young parents have not only coped, but flourished, is very inspiring. If Courtenay is having trouble reading, she will benefit from direct, intensive phonics. English is composed of 44 sounds, represented by 70 phonograms (single letters of groups of letters making one sound). Knowing these and syllabication allows you to decode the letters in order to read, and encode them to spell.

Darn. It's too bad Maliyah's been sick. But its great they're doing so good in school. All your kids are definitely going to go far. Maybe you could get the boys their own boat LOL. I think you should write a book but I'm afraid the rate your kids are developing you'd have to keep writing -maybe a series of books. All kidding aside it would be a great book and a great uplift to many people.

Trust that everyone is doing better by now.

It is so wonderful to hear that both girls and the entire family are doing so well, this week's obstacles mostly hurdled. I think a book on your ordeal, experiences and suggestions is a terrific idea. There are many parents that would benefit from your words. I have no children and I keep up-to-date weekly through your website. Learning about what others have gone through, learning about complicated procedures and the toll (good and bad) that conjoined twins can have on a family is definetely something that more people should know about. The nation has been drawn to your family since the first mention of it. You both have done an amazing job. You have taken care of your ENTIRE family completely. Best of luck.

You have beautiful children. I am touched by your story. I am researching twins in literature and have recently turned my attention to conjoined twins. It's so nice that you have this great website.

What an incredible thing you all have gone through. Congratulations on your anniversary! You made a very difficult decision for those girls and it all worked out.

It has been so long since we have heard from your family. Hope everything is going great! With school starting, and three children having home work, can keep parents very busy. But if you have a minute would love to hear from you.

I watched a program the other night on the separation of conjoined 4-month girls. I hope they are doing as well as Kendra and Maliyah. Ironically, these twins were born on February 26, and I believe their names are Jade and Erin. I still check everyday to see if you have posted any updates and new photos. Hope everything is going well with your family. God bless you.

Hello Herrins! Hope you are doing well. I know how busy you must be daily at every minute of the day but i just love your kids and your site. I fell in love with them more then a year ago when i first heard of the twins. I wish we could get more frequent updates and or pictures. I miss so much reading about them on a more frequent basis. Again, im not being negative, as you can see from your posts there are so many people that have just fell in love with your family and love knowing how they are doing and seeing new pictures. And Courtney is one of the most beautiful little girls I have ever seen. God bless your whole family and hope very much you are doing well. PS-You all need an assistant that will write the updates for you all that way you dont have to do it, so all of us around the world dont have to wonder how well the girls and family are doing. Take Care

Haven't checked in for a long time and it's wonderful to see how well the girls and the other children are doing. You have all been through a lot but never lost your faith and became an inspiration to many. May God continue to bless you.
