Thank you so much for the regular updates. We all realise just how things must be with you all ... and for this reason are so very grateful. Time will go by so very quickly and the little angels will be completely healed. Just think of how quickly time has gone by from the time you decided to have them separated until now. There are prayers from all over and continued faith for their full recovery. May God Bless you all.

Well Little Noah just came out of surgery and everything went better than planned and when he was brought into the PICU where Josh was at all of a sudden they both started crying. It was amazing to hear both of them especially Little Noah since he had been in such a critical condition. In other news Noah my husband had to finally tell Alex about Alexandra. The heart surgeon said that Alexs heart would be able to take anything about now and it was just getting really hard to keep it from him so Noah was very wise and told him in a way that wasnt a total shock. I mean loosing your sister and best friend after 16 years is a big shock but Alex is ok. He has requested that nobody go in his room except for the necessary doctors. A while ago during Little Noah's surgery I went and saw him through his window and he was crying uncontrollably. When Noah and I went in he looked at us and stated crying even harder and then asked about Little Noah and Josh. After we told him that they were ok he asked us to please leave. We respected his privacy and left but through the window we saw him crying like never before. Please help us pray for him. You would never imagine how much he and Alexa prayed for your girls and how much they mentioned them. Alex is the drummer at our church and even asked for prayers for the girls to the church so they were really into it. Please help us pray for him and his family now. Also thank you Marley and Jeanette for understanding us and praying for us. I will later on show Alex and his family that there were many out ther praying for them. Jake and Erin sorry were writing here but we really cant write to you any other way and we wanted to let you know about our twins and about how much Alex and Alexa loved you guys and now really need your prayers. Thank you and please keep praying. Love Noah, Brenda, our Twins and Rosa and her family. PS We asked my sister if I could give you Alexs e mail address to try to confort him and to tell him you are praying for him and she said yes so if you want to write to him write to alexs_rodriguez@yahoo.com . It would really show him a lot of support. Thank you all again!

I am writing to Brenda and Noah and Rosa and her family. I am so grateful for the miracles that you have been blessed with for your new little twins. I have been praying for them since I read your first guestbook entry. I also have been praying for Alex and Alexa for about the past two months (when I first read their entry about needing another heart transplant). I am deeply sorry for the loss of such a beautiful young lady as Alexa. I have never seen her with my eyes, but I could see her through her sincere and compassionate words. I think when you pray for someone over an extended period there comes a connection. I have shed many tears tonight for your family. I pray peace and understanding will be your gift, that you will be able to feel her presence and know that she is with the One who loves her perfectly and suffered with her through everything. I will continue to pray for you, your twins and Rosa and her family. I know during difficult times such as these we are attended by our loved ones that have passed on. May you feel their love and strength buoy you up. God bless you all.

Girls, dogs are great...just keep playing with little Alli and she'll be great, we love dogs! Thank you so much Jeanette! It's great to know someone cares...just help us pray because Alex is getting out of hand because he really wants to talk to Alexa and thinks is very odd when his parents and brothers and sister comes in crying and he can't talk to Alexa so please help us pray. Also help us pray for Little Noah because his wounds got infected so he went in for sugery about an hour ago to take out the infection and clean it out. Thank you, Noah, Brenda,our Twins and Rosa and Her kids.

I know this guestbook is for Jake and Erin and the girls, but this is for Noah, Brenda, Rosa, Alex, Nathaniel, Nathan, and Nathalie. I read your post, and I am so very, very sorry that you lost Alexa during the heart transplant. I had read Alexa's comments in here and admired her and her brother Alex a great deal. My deepest condolences. I hope that the boys Josh and Noah will be okay. Sending you a big virtual hug, Jeanette.

Hello Jake and Erin! Congratulations to the girls for doing so amazingly well. I'm sorry they had to go back to the hospital a few times but I now know that road bumps are part of the experience. Please give a huge hug from us to Courtney, Kendra, Maliyah, Austin, Justin, and Alli. We hope you keep doing so well and if we could, we would go help clean up that house, but don't worry, I haven't been home for almost a month now! My mom has been bringing me clothes but I haven't returned home ever since so don't worry to much about your house being clean, just enjoy your kids...I know that's what I will do! You guys aren't getting our messages, are you? Well, I would like to tell you this in a more private matter but since we can't here it goes. Well, here's the story, our boys are separated!!! Here's what happened and truly it came from God because it was just such a coincidence and such a miracle. Ok, well, my husband Noah is a Tumor Pediatric Surgeon at UCLA Medical Center, the same hospital were the boys are still at. On September 22 a lady gave birth to twin girls and they both had tumors in their brains that had passed on from their mother. Unfortunately the girls died on the after noon of that same night but while Noah was with them a few hours before death, he tried to comfort them and told them that he himself that conjoined twins right there in that hospital that were on the brink of death. The lady went to see our boys and just fell in love with them and she said that if her girls didn't survive, which she was sure they wouldn't, she was willing to donate BOTH girls' hearts and lungs so that our boys would live!! I was so amazed. That night at about 8 our church was in deep prayer for our boys and at about 9 the organs were ready for next day transplant...it was so unbelievable! So on Saturday the 23rd they both had the separation and transplant surgery which was to take about 24 hours and ended up taking 32 hours but in all it came out perfect. During the surgery though, we got he biggest scare yet, as the boys were already in different rooms and were being worked on, Josh's surgeon came down to talk to us and we though it was so weird because the head surgeons never came down as their nurses always did. Well, as he was coming he had the most saddest face ever. As he took a deep breath and was about to tell us, his phone rang. He answered it and all of a sudden jumped for joy! He then told us that he had lost Josh but the call had just told him to get back because they had re jumped the heart and made the lungs work along and he was living!! Later on he told us that it was a true miracle because the heart hadn't been beating for about 10 minutes already but all of a sudden, it just started. We were so amazed. There weren't any more bumps on the road. Just that we were getting really worried because a 24 hour surgery had turned into a 32 hour surgery but everything came out fine. We still haven't been able to hold our babies and they'll be a month in 5 days but it can wait as long as they're okay. Noah is bigger than Josh but Josh is in a less critical situation than Noah because Noah has a lot more cables and hasn't even woken up or stirred and Josh has even cried but they'll both come along just fine. The surgeons just said that Noah's body is really trying to reject the organs so he's still extremely weak but he'll get along just fine. Please write back soon and give me some support because it's extremely hard to see my babies in this condition. Please write back to this address, Lynwdbrenda@aol.com , this one you wrote to last because it's faster for me to get to. Thanks for all your prayers because I know you must have prayed a lot for this to come out the way it did. Thank you and write back. Oh and I couldn't put the pictures here so write back and give me your e-mail address so that you can see our babies. PS- Please pray for my sister because I don't know if you remember her comments but her name is Rosa and she has a set of 16 year old twins, Alex and Alexa and a set of 11 year old triplets, Nathaniel, Nathan, and Nathalie. Well her twins got a hreat-transplant yesterday morning and my niece Alexa died. Her body just couldn't take it anymore with so much heart pressure and once the transplant was done, the heart gave up on her and she died. Once Alex woke up he started asking for her and his parents and brother and sister couldnt stand telling him so Noah and I went in and told him that she was fine and was in the ICU Room next door. He wanted to talk to her on the phone but we told him she was sleeping. Today all day he's been asking but the surgeons told us not to tell him because he's at a high risk of heart attack so he doesn't yet know. Please pray for them because it was because of Alex and Alexa that we found out about this website. It was them that gave us the gift of being able to talk to you so please help us pray for the family but especially for Alex and Nathan because they were the closest to her. Well I'll stop writing because I realize I've written a lot but please write back soon! If oyu want to see what hey wrote, they comment in he guestroom on August 19 and Septmber 13, just incase you want to see what the twins wrote to you. Noah and Brenda

Also I want you to know that your family story has been uplifting and touched me. I know there are many people out there that wish the girls, you, your entire family many blessing.

Soo happy to hear the girls are doing so well, they're such beautiful little girls and are lucky to have parents and a family who love them soo much. I've missed a little bit of the updates and when I checked today I saw the new puppy for the first time and my heart skipped a beat... a wonderful boxer pup... they're the most loving pets with such a great personality. you've made a great choice. We had one for almost 11 years before he passed in Jan... my best pal. Now we have a 9 month old pup who is our 3 yr old daughter's best friend... and don't worry... they get easier!! Best of luck in the future for your whole family. with your faith in God, you'll make it through with flying colors! God bless you and yours with a long, healthy, wonderful life together!

I am very sorry to read from your personal journal entries that people are writing mean and destructive comments to your family. We pray for you and I have a 5 year daughter that would love to meet your girls! I also have enjoyed reading about all your adorable children.

So glad that your family is back home and together again. Your new little puppy is adorable! I have a question for you, why is it as identical twins, M & K don't really look "identical"? Their facial structures seem to be quite different. They are both adorable little girls but they don't seem to be what one might call identical. Just curious if there is a specific reason. Wishing you all continued joy and success and the girls continued healing. I hope that Maliah's kidney transplant goes smoothly when the time comes.

I try to check your website every day to see how your girls and your family are doing, but even when you don't post for a few days, I understand because your number one priority needs to be your family. Don't let anyone guilt you into keeping the updates current to the second if you don't have time to do it. I can't imagine the time and energy it takes to keep up with a houseful of kids - much less a houseful than includes two children who underwent such major surgeries at the same time. Do what you can, but don't feel bad if you can't keep it up. Do you have a trusted friend you could ask to help out with the postings? If not, don't beat yourselves up about not getting it done. God bless you all!

Want to say Thanks for taking time to keep everyone updated. You're so busy with the kids and puppy but somehow you still manage to think of all of us. I share these updates with everyone around me on how the girls are doing. Your children are beautiful, and lucky to have you for their mother!

Well, I check up on the girls frequently but I rarely say much. I hope yall didn't have to go back to the hospital after that last trip. Those girls have been through enough. They just need to be able to rest and heal in ALL aspects. You're entire family just needs some rest. LOL. With all the children and new puppy, I don't know about the resting part. *smiles* God bless yall.

Don't they have any home care nurses available to help you with the girls? Here in Michigan, nurses could have done the IV antibiotics at home and changed the IV, too. I'm glad the girls are doing better. You parents try to eat right and get as much rest as you can to stay strong. God Bless You all.

Thanks for the new pictures. What an awesome family you are to put your life on display so intimately. I am praying for the girls and your entire famly. I would love to meet your family the next time I come back to Utah. I usually come two time a year. You have been through so much and are still smiling, except for the puppy dog picture with Mommy. It will be okay Mommy. Puppy doggies can be great companions.. Thank you for sharing your lives with me and the world. May God always bless your family.

I have been following your family's story ever since I read about it on Google News (sometime in the middle of this summer). I don't watch much TV so I haven't seen the news episodes. I only read the updates weekly or so and I guess being the mother of twins myself keeps drawing me to your story. I have been very fortunate with all of my children that we haven't had to endure the hardships that you have faced. Not that I would wish hardship on anyone but I truly believe that what you have dealt with has made you a stronger unit. All your children are richer for the experience I'm sure. The reason I chose to write today is because I was appalled that people would attack your religious beliefs in this forum. Who is to say what religion is right and who has the right to choose for someone else? I am glad that you feel so strongly in your own beliefs to dust off what others have to say. Glad to see that the girls are home and doing as well as they are. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you even though you didn't know it until now. Mom of three in Canada

I'm so glad the twins are doing so well. And all of your children are lucky to have you as parents. I admire how you are there for K&M and still are there for your other children. I've been following the website since their surgery and am amazed at what your family has gone through. It's proven to me that there is a such thing as strong family bonds left in this day and age. God Bless your family!!!

I check out your site once a day and always send good thought to the girls. Recently, though I 've started thinking more apout you parents. Everything sound exhausting! And that is befor the other three kids. Take care of yourselves too. Make time for a center of calm so that you have the strength that your children need, rather than the last of your reserves. Good Luck! So many people are thinking and praying for you that I am sure you will weather each of these moments.

Don't know why I didn't check the old year book sooner. Kept thinking Jake looked so familiar when I saw you guys in the news....We graduated from BHS together. Always amazing to see where life has brought us in such a short time. Kendra and Maliyah are only a few months older than my daughter Alexia and funny enough Justin and Austin are just six months younger than my daughter Briannda. Guess they will all be in school together too! You have a beautiful family....your kids are all so cute and I wish you all the very best. If the kids are ever up for a playdate I'm sure my girls would love to make new friends. Oh, here's our little spot on the web www.geocities.com\animalcracker.geo Abbey

Well shoot, I sure hope that things start going a lot better for you guys in the near future. Those little girls are probably so sick of that hospital, along with yourselves. But things could be a lot worse too. Those pictures ar priceless to us out here in vast out there. It seems so good to see those little girls smiling so big, and you think back of the pictures of them right before they went to get operated on for their seperation, and think what a tragic momement that must have been. They have come along way thats for sure. I am still keeping you guys in my prayers, and want you to know that I think of you alot, wondering how those little darlings are doing. And even though I love to get your updates, I know that you have lives to live and shouldn't have to feel obligated to keep us all informed about everything. We love you guys!!! Bye

You all are an inspiration to people all over the world. You have faced your trials with nothing but the deepest of faith and love. This has been my most profound impression of your entire family. Hold on to your convictions and believe in your faith and it will get you through. Our family will be facing a profound trial with the birth of my newest granddaughter to be born in November and I only hope that we have as much strength and conviction as you family has shown. God bless all of you. I hope Kendra will soon be back home and that only continued good health will come to both of the twins and your entire family. God Bless. Sue Ellen

It is so hard to really grasp what K&M have gone thru as well as your whole family , what a miracle , a true miracle. I keep all of you in my prayers , the Lord has been good and I am sure He will continue to bless each of you. And for Mom and Dad , I pray for you also with the great job you have with all of your children , you are a true inspiration to those of us who think that we have difficulties in our lives.... keep up the great work , your reward awaits you in the joy you receive from seeing your children grow and prosper. God Bless Kim

Thank you so much for sharing info so frequently on your whole family. I admire your strength to cope with all that has been going on in your lives. I'm sure you've wondered how you would have managed to go through each day if you and your husband didn't have such a strong (and growing stronger) faith. How comforting to know that God is there with us in each of our lives. I know it's not always easy for you to take some time out for yourself, much less time out to share news about all your children. Thank you very much.

I'm sorry to hear that Kendra is back in the hospital. Hopefully it won't be too long of a stay. My daughter had a central line for about 1.5 years and had to deal with line infections on a few occasions. Glad to hear she is already feeling better. And good news on Maliyah possibly coming off the wound vac soon.

Thank you SO much for sharing the intimacy of your family with all of us. I am in awe of your strength...even knowing it is God driven, you have made your entire family such an inspiration to us all. I am sorry to hear that Kendra is ill...hopefully, she will be feeling better soon. I took a moment to look at just the most recent archive of comments...my goodness! They are from EVERYWHERE! How wonderful for K&M and for Courtney and the boys, too! We all forget how much Courtney and the boys have to be under the spot-light too...I love the way you are so inclusive in your photos...remembering all the special moments that take place for all the children. You and Jake are amazing parents and your family is so amazing and loving. May the Lord continue to bless you and shine His face upon you. All the best for each of you. Thank you again for the updates and sharing your family with all of us! Carla in Oregon

Prayers here for Miss Kendra's antibiotics to get rid of those bad bugs and let her come home quickly! And yay for Maliyah losing that wound vac soon. Two steps forward and one back is still a net gain, and those girls are getting there! It amazes me to think about how powerful your testimony is, and how many people you touch by sharing your family's story. You and Erin truly are ministers, not only to your family, but also to those of us who follow along. Praise God for raising up such a family as yours, and may He pour out an extra measure of strength and grace upon you today.

Herrin Family, I admire what you do so much and I can only imagine how hard it must be. I have a set of twins myself that are in Kindergarden now. They are wonderful but a definate challenge. I also have a 2 year old that seems so easy now after having the twins. Your family is beautiful and I hope the best for you. May you have energy, modivation, and patience. (Those seem to be the things that I lack on the bad days). You are amazing and are blessed with one of the hardest jobs in the world. I know you've been doing this for a while now and know so much better than I, but don't forget the support you have from your family and friends and even so many strangers. Your family is truley a miracle. Thanks for letting us into your lives and leaning so much good from it. You inspire us all to do better and love more! Sincerely Lacey Olpin

GOOD MORNING Erin, I would like to thank you for being such a strong mother to your children and your husband and to thank your loving husband for all the support he gives you and the children. I know it can be hard and testing at times, but with the Lord by your side you can accomplish anything. Don't worry about the house hon; one day the children will move out and go their way, the house will be empty and then you will have time to keep it clean. I have a daughter named Erin,26, two sons,Brad 22 & Cody 19, a step-daughter named Erin Renee, 25 and two step-sons, Jason 29,Jeremy 22, I know the feeling of turning around and not having time to "finish" what I started, or having to do something AGAIN. Enjoy each day as it comes, close the doors to their rooms so you don't see the "organization" and enjoy those special moments with each of them. The old saying "Time flys by." is so true. I wish I were closer so that I could help you out. My daughter Erin Renee is a school teacher in SLC, I will let her know of your family; she has a "large loving heart", especially for children. You have a very beautiful family and I'll bet the "grands" are very proud. I have four grandchildren, Landin 33 mos, Nathan 26 mos, Madison 22 mos, Triston 4 mos, and I love every minute with them, even when I have to count them out or pick up after them. If ever you and your darling husband need to talk or share with someone, please don't hesitate to write. It's great to share. Love to you all, write if and when you have some time, I will understand.

Its so great to hear the girls are doing so well! I have 6 kids as well, (well, 5 kids and one dog!) I have one set of Twins and a set of Triplets! My twins are 16 and their names are Alexander and Alexandra and my triplets are 11 and their names are Nathaniel, Nathan, and Nathalie. Although they are pretty old, our house-clean records are about the same. I mean, I pick them up from high school and jr. high school and it only takes them as long as it takes me lock the van and go in the house for it to be a complete mess!Its completely insane, so I know how you feel! What you can do is tie them all to a post and not let them loose...I'm just playing. Well good luck in keeping that house clean and congradulations on the girls doing so well! With love and always in our prayrs, Dad, Mom (Rosa), Twins Alexander and Alexandra, Triplets Nathaniel, Nathan, and Nathalie, and our adorable maltese dog, Max. WE LOVE YOU!

Living outside of Utah, I have just learned of your family through the article in LDS Living. You are truly an inspiration and give great meaning to being parents with unconditional love! Your family was given this challenge because so many other families would not have had the strength or perserverance to make it through. May the Lord bless you, your children, and those you come in contact with!

I wanted to take the opportunity to let you know how often I think of your girls. I check your website every week to see the girls' progress. One night when my two year old daughter Kate and I were saying our prayers we prayed for the twins in UT to regain their strength and to get better soon. Kate asked me if she could go to their house and play with them. It was very sweet. So, I just thought I would send a quick note to let you know that so many people across the counrty are thinking of your family and keeping you in our prayers. What an insipiration your family has been! You truly exemplify the meaning of the word strength. I wish you all the best the future has to offer! Take care Erin McKeighan

I am pregnant with my second child and have been so interested in the amazing story of the Herrin twins. My son (16 months) and I have said a prayer every night for M and K and every day I read the update and our prayers are answered. Thank you for keeping total strangers like me involved in your family's life. I know that it must be difficult to write something every day, but I really look forward to hearing about their progress. God bless and best wishes to you all.

THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME INVADE YOUR PRIVACY. WHEN YOU READ ABOUT SOMETHING COMPELLING IN THE NEWS, OFTEN YOU NEVER HEAR THE "END" OF THE STORY, OR ANYTHING MORE ABOUT IT. AS A MOM AND GRANDMOM, IT TOUCHED MY HEART. I REALLY WANTED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED NEXT. I WAS DELIGHTED TO SEE THAT YOUR GIRLS ARE MAKING STEADY PROGRESS. YOU HAVE A LOVELY FAMILY. OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU.

Your family has been in my prayers. I have kept up with you on your web-site and the news. Please don't let the negative opinions get to you. No one has a right to judge someone by their religious preference. We have one God and he hears all of our prayers. We have no right to judge. Only He has that right. I am a Baptist and we always seem to be the brunt of jokes and statements, so I know what you mean. God Bless your family and keep raising your kids the way you are doing. I believe you deserve a Parent of the Decade award. Your Sister in Christ, Mary

I am about the same age as you both and I don't know that I could take care of 5 children. I will continue to pray for you all. Your family is beautiful. Thank you for keeping your readers updated, I read it everyday. Your puppy is really cute.

Hi! I am another of those who checks daily on your family, even though you don't know me. There is something so inspiring about everyone and every happening in your family. God clearly chose you to make a difference in the world. I love to check on K&M but am especially amazed by Courtney, who appears so full of love and grace. It goes without saying that all your children are beautiful as well as unique. What an abundance of blessings! Thanks for keeping us updated despite all the other work you have to do.

But oh the love and the fun we had - so glad you can enjoy your family - they are precious treasures! XO Jackie

Hello to the Herrin family! I've been keeping track of how things are going with the girls ever since I saw you all on the Kerri-Anne morning show last month. I have a twin brother who didn't survive birth, so your story really touched me and I have been praying for Kendra and Maliyah, that they both have great outcomes and be happy healthy little girls. Most people may never understand what I mean when I say I feel as though something is missing because my brother didn't survive, but having two sets of twins, you would know that it is a very special thing, and no matter what happens a twins presence is never lost. I may be only 20, but through what hard times I have been through I always knew my brother Jordan was always there with me. I am delighted that your daughters will know that they still have each other, and that they overcame such a difficlut thing so early in life. Your family is truely blessed. Congratulations for making it this far, I wish you and yours the very best. God Bless, Emily.

Hope the puppy continues to be a sweetie. She is really cute and a bunch of kids is a perfect environment for a little boxer. Take care of yourselves, Mom and Dad. Will keep praying for you all.

Dear Jake and Erin, Most of us cannot even begin to imagine the demands upon your lives day to day or even hour to hour. You both are amazingly strong and resilent;however, as you pointed out in your most recent posting -- you can't do it all with the demands that your special family has. Contrary to what you may think, it's good to see you mention the limitations... because it really does give the your loving church members the opportunity to be His hands to help and minister to you. When we allow others to use their giftings in our lives, then we are touched by the hand of God in very tangible ways. He uses his children to love on those who need it most.Jake and Erin, you are such an inspiration ... your honesty and willingness to share with all constantly touches me. I pray that your energy is restored tonight during your rest and that the Lord would bring many willing servants into your life to help when you need it the most. By the way, the photos are just adorable!Thank you for sharing with all... Blessings, Bernice

I have been reading daily about your girls. I hate to even miss one day..cause I love watching them get better each and every day!!! I know a friend of mine and I have been praying for your family. I have 4 kids of my own and could not imagine going through what you go through everyday with 5 kids!! Four kids keeping me hopping on their own with just everyday stuff without all the extras you have to deal with. I am glad everything is going great for your family and know that I pray daily for the healing of your girls and strength for the rest of your family!! Keep up the great work and know that some day it will all be worth it when everything goes back to normal...which I don't know what normal is with kids!

Hello Kendra and Maliya, I probably spelt your names wrong. I appologise! I have been following your story since your surgery. I'm LDS too, and that made me stand up and pay attention when I heard it on CNN. Then I got to watch you on the TV as well. You girls, no, the whole family is famous!! I just wanted to say that you have really represented us well. That is to say...our LDS family. I wonder if I would have done as well. I hope you don't mind. But I'll keep coming back and checking in on your story. I hope that things get better and better. Just think what amazing things you will be able to teach us all when you are both adults! You're sure teaching us amazing things now! Sincerely, Dolly Perry

I've been reading your website since before the girls had their surgery, and I finally made time to send kudos your way. When I was growing up, I always wanted 3 kids. Then I had my first, and kept thinking, when he's finished with this stage, or when he's reached that stage, maybe I'll have another. Well, he turns 14 in December, and he's still my only! You two must have the patience of Job to raise five children (plus a puppy), and I admire you greatly for rising to the challenge with such grace and dignity. I just read your post about not keeping the house clean for more than 3.2 seconds, and I can't manage to keep my house clean, and there's just me, my husband, son, a dog and a cat. Good luck in the future and remember that we're all a little insane.

Thanks for the update and new photos. I especially like mommy looking not too happy with puppy. I got a real laugh from it. I can relate. And the three girls together is very nice too. I do hope you can have extra hands. I took care of twin for 6 years from 2 months to 6 years and that was very difficult at times. But at least I went home at night and got a good nights sleep. Keep smiling.

Hey this is Bonnie Jean's daughter. I just wanted to say that I'm so glad the girls are doing so well. I miss being able to come over and play but we haven't seen each other since grandpa Lamar died about 3 years ago. We did come and see you about a month or so ago. We watched 20-20 with you and talked about how the girls were doing. Again I just want to say that I'm glad the girls are doing great. They look so good and they are getting big. Well I love you and hope to see you soon.

As a mum to three kiddos all total care and all on feeding tubes all diapered and in wheel chairs one who will be walking as soon as she gets her back brace in a walker that I will have to help her into and out of I KNOW how it feels. Saturday it seemed like every pump was going off at many times a day. It is even worse when two who are on over night feeds go off when the girls turn and kink a line at night. Then there are the nights when the oldest is on 0 2 and the sat monitor gives false alarms and you need to be sleeping. So I REALLY know. Is there any way you can get some help with night watches or house cleaning? Even some respite time when you and your wife can have some down time? I have been at this 8 years and it gets easier if you can keep a routine. But let that get interrupted and it becomes chaos. I will pray that you get some help. Loved the pics. Your wife does not look thrilled with the pup. I understand. My oldest wanted a puppy for years and I gave in finally at Christmas and did not know at that time that Amber would be so ill and require surgery and two weeks in the hospital and suffer kidney damage and twice weekly trips to the doctor for that along with 4 months on inhome IV antibiotics. UGH! We still are not out of the woods. But, the puppy is house trained . YEAH! Courtney looks so lovely in her Uniform and all look so happy to have some normalicy in their lives. Thanks for posting updates and pics. I will keep praying for all of you. Virginia and the three angels

Amazing! I have been following the girls' progress and I love how you are so devoted to the entire family because it would be easy to let the overwhelming day to day care of K & M become the main focus and forget about the other kids, especially Courtney who seems so mature. We also have 5 kids (and a dog, 3 cats, and two turtles... ) Only one of our kids had any major health issues and he was born with club feet that had to be taken off and reattached at age 1. He is doing so well that you wouldn't know it unless we told you he was different or if you see him without his shoes. God is good, all the time. I pray for you and the girls for a fast and complete healing for the girls and for strength for the two of you to keep going and doing so well with your family and faith. Good luck and God Bless all of you!

All of your kids are beautiful. I must mention Courtney who always looks so pretty and pleasant. I'm sure she's a wonderful big sister to all of her siblings. Hang in there with the puppy. They can be as much work as another kid, that's for sure! But they provide nearly as much joy (especially when they're fully house-trained).

I check your website daily, and really enjoy the updates. I think that you are the strongest parents in the world. You raise your 5 precious children, while taking extra care of your two gifts, Maliyah and Kendra. On top of that, you update on their progess; it's greatly apprieciated. GOOD LUCK!!!

Dear Herrin Family, Just a note to say I read the updates daily and look forward to each one. I am uplifted by your strength and courage. The pictures of the family and how much love they convey is priceless. I was amazed to see the picture of Kendra standing up. Could the girls stand up when they were conjoined? Jake, when you wrote that you realized it was impossible for 1 person to take care of the "6" kids I thought Wow! Most men never figure that out with a couple of kids with no health issues! May you have many less stressful days as the girls continue to heal.

Welcome home girls! My son saw a news blip on the t.v. and said - "hey mom, you know the girls you've been checking on all the time (on the computer) - they're home and okay now!" Pretty cool stuff! You remain in my prayers...

I have enjoyed your updates since the seperation, but had been out of town for awhile this month. It is great to learn that you now have your family at home and back together again! It is alot of work, too, it seems and I just pray that you and your wife continue to be inspired and encouraged by the many thoughtful emails and the knowledge that many, many, many people are pulling for you and your kids!!

Thank you so much for updating the site and adding the photos. The latest pictures are beautiful. I am very happy to see how happy all the children look. It seems everyone is adjusting to being home together which is the most important part. May God Bless you and your entire Family. I pray that he continues to give you and your husband the strength that you both need to take care of your family. God Bless. Donna Swanson

Loved all those new pics of the girls with the pups. Was wishing one with all the boys (especially dad and the twin boys) with the pup and also all 7 of you with the pup. To me, Erin didn't look to enthusiastic with the pup. Sorry to comment, but I understand that Erin must be really tired at that time. Erin, do take care of yourself as well as your kids. Courtney looks so gorgeous and grown up in that school uniform. Will be looking forward when the time the girls will be off their feeding tubes and Maliyah will be getting that kidney transplant. Keep the website open and updates coming. God be with you and your family. Hugs, prayers and kisses to your family, and one extra one for Alli the pup.

Cheer up Erin! The puppy looks like a boxer, and boxers are wonderful dogs. It'll be good lesson for the kids (and Dad) to take care of her. Just have patience while she's a puppy and learning what you expect of her.

Your girls look so beautiful. Its wonderful that they are already home. My daughter and I also have a female boxer. She's 2 now and she is truly a wonderful dog to be around children. I seen that Mom doesnt look thrilled about the dog. I noticed that look because I was not wanting a dog but when I seen my daughters tears I got the dog. Hated it, but now I wouldn't give MY dog up for anything. Don't worry Mom, they are a lot of work at first (its like having another baby) but it does get better. Good Luck and congratulations. Your family is very fortunate.

As usual, your site has given me my "pick-me-up" for the day. Don't worry, mom, the pup won't be a puppy for long. They grow up fast. And if you've got it potty trained already you're doing great. (Could I send mine up and see if you could train her. LOL) As that pup grows she might be a great help with the kids. Somehow dogs seem to sense needs of their humans and try to fill those needs. I hope someday I can meet you all.

I am thrilled for you all that you are at home and settling into "family life" It was sad to hear that some people have taken this venue to express their religious beliefs. This isn't about them or their views, so maybe they should stay off your website. This IS about the girls and you. It is an experience that you have chosen to allow us to follow and recieve information on updates and we thank you for that. There is no need for you to apologize for late updates or missed days. Most of us that TRUELY care appreciate what you are doing.

First, your family is absolutely beautiful and you are truly blessed! I just saw your website today for the first time and was given the website by another mom on a website that we post on. I have monoamniotic twins and we were told our twins were almost conjoined. For a few ultrasounds, they thought they were. My husband and I have extreme faith and prayed a lot during the twins pregnancy. I give you all the credit in the world and hope that the girls are doing well. Congrats on such a beautiful and loving family. Your story was truly touching and brought tears to my eyes. Continue to have such strong faith and hope and it will get you through any times (hard or easy) in your life. We did during our pregnancy and that is why our twins middle names are hope and faith. Congrats again, Gabrielle

Just a note to let you know we have been praying for all the family. It is so good to see the girls are doing fine. Dialysis is hard on the body but she will do well once she is adjusted. Take care of the new puppy. What is her name? All our love & prayers are with you.

As a nurse, I understand the benefits of being able to have your children at home as opposed to the hospital. How wonderful. The girls look like they are just healing remarkably. Such a major surgery only weeks ago and now look how excellent they are doing. It is truly a miracle. It must be extremely tiring, but for such a wonderful outcome. Will continue to pray that God will give you as parents (and your entire family) the energy, knowledge, and wisdom that He has blessed you with. You are truly a role model for all us parents out there. Young parents are often questioned of their abilities and you two have set such a wonderful example for the rest of us young parents as well. How admirable. God bless those little princesses-absolutely gorgeous!!! And such smart little cookies, too.

Im glad to see the girls are doing good. You'll probably need to keep things a little slower and shorter for a while. Have the relatives meet you half way maybe. Just keep those girls coming along little at a time, they are well worth the time. When the time comes that they are well enough to travel down here, I'd love to have you come and have a good old country meal with our family and take the kids on a horse ride. We have some real nice horses that I know they and you would have a real good time on. I am so dang happy those girls are doing good, you guys must be doing a great job with them. I love them so much, keep up the good work. Thanks

I can't believe you would be so brave to share your experience with the whole world! I know you must have endured much in the process, like the negative comments from people who's hearts are cold. We have prayed for your family manny times and feel so blessed to be able to see God's work. So many times we pray and just have to believe that God is listening and working, but watching your beautiful family through the pictures and your updates lets us see, and feel that God IS working a miracle through your family! I just can't imagine the strain of having to make some of the decisions that you had to make, but knowing that you were praying for "God's Will" you must have been assured that you were doing the right thing no matter the outcome. And look where it has gotten your girls! Two separate lives! How they will live their lives from this point forward is because you said, "Yes" to our God in heaven and then trusted him with your daughters whom he loves even more than you love them. Imagine! Such an awesome God! Bless you and your family (and the puppy-does she have a name?)

I had never even heard of your girls until a few days ago I saw a blog on a friend's MySpace page talking about the girls' surgery. I applaude you!!! I am not necessarily a religious person, but I have to admit that it must be some kind of miracle that they're both still alive and thriving. I have faith in them and your love and strength that they will continue to grow to be happy, functional adults!!!

Dear Herrins, just rereading the article in the Church News(Sept.9) about your family and noticed the website.So glad the girls (and family) are doing well. I have watched the news stories about them and am so glad there's a place to keep track of their progress.We're members of the church also and I think your in such a unique position to be missionaries through your experiences.Why anyone would want to write negative things in light of the very obvious miracles you've had is beyond me.Oh well,their problem! Give the girls a hug and we'll continue to add our prayers to the zillions of ones your family is getting. Sincerely, Jeanne

Congratulations on the puppy! Sounds like the whole family is enjoying the new member. I write because we recently got a lab puppy when he was 6 weeks old. By 7 weeks he could "go potty" on command. It's pretty funny, but very convenient. Even now that he is older we continue to use it and it never fails. We just took him out and told him "go potty" and praised him once he finished. Anyway...just something to think about. It really minimized accidents. Have a great day.

Dear Jake & Erin & family, I have been following your family's story for several months now, since Kendra & Maliyah were preparing for seperation & have been very impressed & touched by your family's faith & positive attitude. I guess that one of the reasons I have been so interested in your family is because I am from Utah too. It is fun to read uplifting stories from our great state, especially since my husband & our family are so far away. I wanted to express my congratulations & best wishes to you all. May you both be blessed with the strength & ability to care for your young, beautiful family - it is obvious that you are very busy with many demands that are different than what a typical family of young children has to deal with. I hope for Courtney to have a healthy & fun year at school, & not contract any illnesses that could bring potential danger to the younger girls while they are still in delicate health, & may she realize what a great, big sister & help she is in your family. Our family's prayers be with Kendra & Maliyah for a continued positive recovery, & for a lifetime of wonderful health & happiness, & thanksgiving for the opportunity to have known life together as most people won't experience, & to now be best sisters in this new way. Good luck to your little Justin & Austin as they grow & learn all the great things about life & their world around them. Thank you for sharing your family & your intimate experiences with us, they have been very uplifting & inspiring. I have loved seeing how 2 such young parents can be so skilled & organized at caring for such a busy family. The way that you have handled both your trials & your blessings is very impressive. May the Lord's choicest blessings be with you & your beautiful children always! Very sincerely, Jeanette Nielson

I read the updates on the girls and the family on a regular basis. I was really saddenend to read that someone used the guestbook for criticism. I don't know how anyone could criticize your family for any reason. You have a wonderful family and all the faith in the world, what more could a person ask for her? Some people just don't stop to think if it was them how would they feel or how would they handle what has been dealt to them. You all keep up the great work and the wonderful attitudes and your faith because I agree that is what has gotten you through all of this. It doesn't matter what your religion is as long as you believe. It is so great that the girls are home and you all are a whole family again. I give you all so much credit and talk about the girls healing process to my friends. Reading the updates makes me feel like I know your family. Most people wouldn't even take the time to do this they would just leave it up to the media. I think you guys are incredible parents. Most parents will never endure what you all have ever in their life. I was almost killed by a drunk driver when I was 16. I am now 40 and ocntinue to have problems so I know the ongoing issues with the medical world. Mine are nothing compared to K&M's but I sort of understand. I am happy to hear the family got a dog. Mine have brought much ahppiness to me as they stand here and wait for me to finish typing so I can take them for a ride. I have four dogs and two of the four expect a ride every Sunday. I am sure your dog will become polied also with all the love that is in your home. Tell the girls I said congratulations on their return home and continue the great work. I pray this all gets easier as the days go on. You all are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've always wanted five children, but my husband originally only wanted one. We have three and he tells me that's the compromise haha But even with three people say "You sure have your hands full". My response is "I'd rather have my hands full than empty". What a beautiful handfull you have. Thank you for sharing so much with everyone. Your entries are such an inspiration.

Dear Jake & Erin, I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to both of you with all the well wishes my heart could possibly hold for your precious daughters and all of your beautiful family... I am the mother of three children...now grown... 25, 21 and 17. I've been following the progress of K&M since the day of their surgery, and I continue to pray for them each day. I have enjoyed so much looking at all the beautiful pictures and hearing about your daily experiences. Honestly, I feel like I know your family personally, and I wish I did. You're certainly all very special and exude a warmth and love that jumps right out of your pictures. It's been comforting to me to see that there are still young parents out there who are raising their children to know and love the Lord. My husband and I started our family at a young age, as you have, and we so enjoyed every stage of their growth. I feel we have reaped what we've sown with our children, and I know all your love and effort will pay off one day for you also when your children are all grown. You've nourished them, body and soul, and this nourishment will carry them through a lifetime... I don't want to go on and on here and fill up your whole guest book. I wish you continued blessings and many, many years of love and happiness with your beautiful family... God Bless, Marie Blair mab4289@yahoo.com

I saw the twins leave last week. My brother was on the third floor of Primary Children's recovering from a burst appendix, so when I was wandering around I saw the camera crew. I had seen the older sister around, too, looking really cute in a black dress. The camera crew took many pictures right outside. They were laying in a shared wagon, and the sun was shining in the Maliyah's eyes! The twins are so special. I think they have done amazingly well. I have loved their story, especially since they were born into such a wonderful family who puts Heavenly Father first of their lives. We appreciate you all!

I'm an identical twin and understand the bond that they share to some extent. Even though my sister and I are forever joined by our hearts, I can't imagine being conjoined then physically separated. I pray that K&M will adjust well. Thanks for sharing such a huge part of your lives with all of us!

I think that for you guys to be able to send your daughters through surgery was amzing. I think that you guys had to have a tremendous amount of faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus. I know if it was me going through what you have it would be quit difficult. I know PCMC Pretty well I even know a few of the doctors because as a Child I was There alot because of my brother

We pray that you will always have strength to tackle whatever comes your way and grow stronger. Good luck with everything!!

Hello, I am so glad that your twins are doing so well. They both look very happy. I just have a question, which maybe you could explain in your updates. In all of the pictures, I noticed Kendra really lying or sitting up straight, whereas Maliyah needed to be supported more...Is this a result of how they were positioned before, or just because of Maliyah's dialysis?

Your family is such an inspiration to others. I was sad to see that you were getting unwanted comments in your guest book. The bottom line is that you know in your heart that you are doing right by your family and the majority of us see you as an inspiration.

I have been following your updates over the past few weeks and just wanted to let you know that your family's journey brings tears to my eyes. Please, keep writing and also, please, keep sharing your faith, whether it be a reference to a priesthood blessing that Courtney requested, the power of prayer or whatever else you feel prompted to mention. I am LDS as well and am very sorry that some people have used the guestbook to be so negative about your religious references. I believe that you are touching many lives by letting people read about the miraculous events that are taking place in your family, and I am sure that your strength and faith will prove to be a tremendous missionary tool. You all are in my prayers. Sister Hull P.S. Have fun with the puppy

I have been following the girls' progress since the day of their surgery and just so happy they are doing well, so courageous for having gone through such trauma. Their smiles and goofiness show how strong they are! I do not believe in any religion but, as you do, believe every one has a right to their beliefs without being harrassed or scorned. You are also very strong and courageous parents and I would have done everything you have for the happiness of my children. Congratulations on your new lives and best wishes on Kendra and Milayah's continued recovery.

Hi, I just wanted to say that I am so glad that Malayia and Kendra are doing well! I have been Praying for them and your family. I enjoy reading the good reports that are posted, I look at them almost everyday to see how the girls are progressing. I also have Faith in God, I know that he is the one that does the healing and that he also used the doctors to help the girls. Keep up your faith in God! I hope and pray that the girls as well as the others in the family continue to do well! God Bless You all,Natasha

So glad to hear that K&M are doing great. Hope Kendra's eating habit will be better soon. Great to hear that Maliyah isn't in a lot of pain. Glad to hear that the puppy is all settled in and that all 5 kids love the puppy. Have you given the puppy a name yet? I would like to comment on the past few updates of some people who gave negative comments. Although I am not LDS or Mormon, I do believe that no matter which religion we believe in (I am a Christian who used to go to Baptist church, but now go to gospel church), we all believe in the same almighty God and shouldn't up with negative remarks. Just don't pay attention to those comments and delete them as soon as possible. Keep the website open forever and keep us updated on the news and more pics of the kids with their puppies and K&M with their crutches. Hugs, Kisses and prayers from Vancouver, BC

I happened upon your website when I was researching cases about conjoined twins and was delighted to realise that you were members. Your story gripped me and I really find it inspirational how you have dealt with the challanges you have been faced with using your faith as your rock throughout. Your family seems wonderful. Thankyou for your example of faith and love. I happened to see an article in the London Metro newspaper that the twins had been seperated, I'm so excited for your family. All my love and best wishes, Heather

A big welcome home to the girls, I've been praying for their recovery all along even though I've never been one of strong Christian faith. The girls are bound to be a positive inspiration to many people for years to come, thanks to your willingness to share your life with us. The pictures are wonderful, although it's hard to scroll back-n-forth horizontally. THANK YOU!

Kendra and Malyiah, You both have been a wonderful inspiration for us kids in the hospital to get better and overcome whatever we all have. I can truly say that knowing about your sucess gives me hope and comfort during the tests. I just wanted to say Thank You. Keep going! =) Mr. and Mrs. Herrin, All five of your children are absolutley gorgeous. Thank you so much for telling the world about your beautiful children, it has always been a soul lifting piece of news to hear how your family is handeling everything that is thrown your way. There are too many families that don't act as a family, and yours seems to be the most amazing family that I have yet to find. The hospital is much easier now that I know there are those out there who can overcome much worse then what I see everday. Thank you so much -Kiara (15 yrs old)

They are so strong. I am just waiting to see them WALKING, it will be a long process but I am sure it will happen sooner than later. Sorry if my English is not to good but I am still learning.

So very happy for all of you. Good to hear that the girls are able to be individuals and have all the emotions of seperated and singles. They are precious. As a mum with three on formula and having to watch fliud balance on one who suffered kidney damage with her surgical complications last year I can sympathize with you. Hope the eating will pick up. I do know that some kiddos won't eat well when they have a NG tube. They may want to do a night drip of the formula to give her tummy a chance to feel hungary during the day. Hugs and prayers to all, Virginia and the three special angels

Jake and Erin, I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how inspiring and strong I think you are. You are so young, and yet so mature. What a great example you are providing to the world through your calm dispositions and obvious love for your family, your church and for God. In the face of adversity, you seem like the type that will always tackle it head on, and come out stronger. Thank you for sharing of yourselves so much.

I am thrilled to hear the girls are doing well. I laugh when I imagine the puppy licking them! I am sure by the end of the week they both will love it! Please tell little Courtney what a wonder big sister she is. What a wonderful little girl! She's a giver by nature and I suspect she doesn't fall too far from the family tree. I am so impressed with her loving nature. The boys sound like they are having a ball with the puppy. They sound so funny! Please give all of the children my best wishes. Tell K&M to rest well and we love them along with Mommy and Daddy, Courtney, Austin and Justin. God bless your wonderful home! Love to all and continung in prayer and thanksgiving, Betty Jean

I would like to thank you for sharing you story and life with us. I believe that everything happens for a reason. And there was a reason God chose your family for these two little girls to be born into. You have face situations most parents could not even dream of, and have faced them with the courage to do what you thought would be best for Kendra & Maliyah, and not what would be easiest. I belive God choose you for that reason. Please don't be discouraged by the negetive comments from people that have no idea what they are talking about. Your are an inspiration to everyone, and especially those who have to face challenges in there lives. I look forward to seeing how Kendra & Maliyah are progressing. Thanks again for allowing us to share that joy with your family.

We are so very happy that your family is back together. I have twin girls that will be 5 Oct.11. Their names are Emily and Kayla. They love me to read about Kandra and Maliyah and to see the pictures. This is such a beautiful age and the twins just love each other. I thank God every night for them. They are my life. My son is 12 and jst was diagnosed with diabetes and Celiac disease. I pray everyday that they can do something about these.

Keep the faith - that is one thing that is constant - GOD. Some people are just plain old nasty. I feel the same way about religion and the NEED we all have to believe in someone higher than ourselves. These types of people are toxic. that is why so many wholesome values seem upside down. You and your family are to be commended.

I am very dismayed to hear that some people have been sending you negative messages. How could they do such a thing? You are a wonderful and inspirational family who have infinite love and faith. You have given these two little girls a chance to have a normal life. Do not be discouraged -- it will be a very long and difficult road but there will be a miracle at the end. They will be fine and will be able to live a totally normal life albeit with a handicap. But lots of people have them and it does not deter them from the joys of life. In my apartment building there are two people who have only one leg! What are the odds of that? They both are doing just fine and are already elderly. So don't pay any mind to the ignorant and insensitive messages. You are heros ! Sincerely Melissa Jossa

You are a very strong willed family and I hope & pray for the best for all of you. Hopefully the peole in this world that have nothing better to do than harass you about how you and your family live your lives will eventually find GOD and stop being hypocritical of your choices. We were not put on this earth to Judge others. I have the utmost respect for you and your family for being as strong and committed to faith after all you have been through. Most people would have lost their faith and asked why me. Just remember when life hands you lemons, make Lemonade. Please give the girls a kiss for me and let them know they are still in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. Congrats on the new puppy. What is it's name or have you gotten that far yet?

You are showing great strength in how you face your trials. We have 3 wonderful little girls ages 7, 4, and 11 months. Our 4 year-old suffers from epilepsy and has had developmental delays and many, many hospitalizations and tests. Our 11 month old daughter started having seizures at age 5 months and is also suffering developmental delays and is currently going through all the testing. It is a struggle to watch your dear children going through physical trials but the strength of our daughters is amazing and it sounds like your wonderful little girls are the same way. I pray that they continue to improve and face their recovery with continued strength. I will also pray for you to have strength and comfort when you need it as well. We are not of the same faith as you, but like you we respect all faiths and are glad that you find comfort, strength and all that you need in yours. Your family is beautiful!

I've been following the girls' progress, it is just amazing what dr's and the human body and soul can do. Seems to me you've given the girls a chance at a normal, individual life. They are accustomed to being together, but, they will learn and grow being apart as well. Must've been a tough decision - I'm glad all has worked well to this point - and hope that everything continues to work positively.

I finally got around to checking to see how the surgery went, and I just wanted to pass along my well wishes. Sounds like the girls are doing well. Your family is an inspiration. Also, I'm sorry to hear you've had negative comments from people about your faith. That's completely inappropriate IMO.

Dear Herrin Family, I just wanted to write and express my sincere joy. I am so pleased to hear that the girls are doing so well. I am sorry to hear that others have come to this awesome sight as a means to hurt others. I know that you are strong in your faith and that is what has kept your family on the right path all this time and will continue. Please know that the selfish people who have come to abuse your family are not following the Lord and serving him like we do. I may not share the same religion, but my faith is strong and I believe in the power. My children loved seeing the girls at home finally. Our daycare has followed the progress that K&M have been making and love every minute of it. Good Luck to all of you and God Bless The Entire Herrin Family!! Very Sincerely Yours, Jennifer

Hello, I have been checking your web site almost daily and have seen you all on the various TV news shows. I think your family is incredibly strong and I am amazed at how well your girls have done considering how much they have had to endure. I have had some surgery in my life that was fairly routine and I don't think I recovered nearly so quickly or so well. Good luck to you all. (And personally, I think a puppy is a wonderful thing to help healing, even though you already seem to have your hands full!)

I'm sorry to hear that you've had hassle regarding your faith. I lost mine a while ago, and am still hoping that it will reappear. Stories like yours are an inspiration! I wonder if those who would have you lose it might be envious? I pity them. I hope that all continues to go well for you, you all have so much courage. K&M have had to accept so much pain, and it must be just as painful for parents to watch. Special thoughts for Courtney, as she settles into her new school.

You have nothing to be sorry for, all people should respect someone elses faith and beliefs. You have been wonderful to share you loving family with the world and let us know how things are and what you feelings are. Judge not that ye be not judged. And I for one can see the touch of God's hands in all that has happened to your sweet family. K&M are special angels sent by God to teach us all a lesson, and the lesson my be different for each. Thank you for sharing, you have strengthen my faith as a LDS person. Although I struggle daily, your family has touched my life and given me a greater apperciation for God's love. For that I am eternally grateful to your family...Hugs and Kisses

I have enjoyed reading and hearing your story. I want to wish you luck with your daughters transplant. We too will be having a transplant soon, it may even be at the same time! We are looking towards November or December (hopefully the first). We will be having ours at the U also. Good luck. We aren't on dialysis yet, but I want to wish you luck because I know how difficult it can be knowing what your child can and can't eat, trying to get them to gain weight, and all of the appointments that go along with it.

It's OK to rant. It is OK to defend your faith. I am looking forward to pictures of all your kids with the new PUPPY. Kids and puppies have so much pure joy and innocence in common that they make great pictures. As I understand scripture we ALL have to have faith like a little child to enter heaven--they trust because they sense things greater than themselves NOT because someone proved something to them in a wordly way. I rejoice with you that the girls are home and I will continue to pray for them (I am a Presbyterian attending a Baptist church).

Just a note to say how inspiring you family is to me. Whatever negative comments people made, please try to ignore them - God is all important in every second of our life, and I - like you - believe that without HIM in our daily life we have no hope for salvation. Keep up the good work and give your precious angels another hug from this grandma from Texas.

I'm sorry people were unkind. You have faith, it may be different from mine but faith is the key to strength. God does not give you more than you can handle. In times when life is almost too painful to endure, God holds you close, giving you the strength to meet another day. I have a disabled child and as you have stated, with your girls "I wouldn't change a thing." My son is 33 now and has had multiple heart operations, outlasted 3 pacer batteries and is a kind, gentle caring person. You know God answers prayers as do I. Peace be with you. Charlotte

I can understand your defensive response and am glad you chose not to despair. Also I am glad you choose not to be critical of others despite their thoughtless remarks. As you stated you are committed in faith...Onward then! Your little girls have become a symbol and your willingness to share their story is inspirational. However anytime you open yourself so wide you sometimes also (unintentionally) invite persecution. Please ignore the negative and contiue to focus on your faith and family. Also I know you are very busy with your own lives and family, but I hope that you keep Mateo and Mchale Shaw in your prayers. The Shaws have formed a very tight bond with the Buckles family who also had their twins separated. All of your stories are equally inspiring and particularly special to our family as we lost conjoined twins in utero. Your stories are all triumphs and I celebrate with you. Please continue to pray for others...and maybe invite others to as well. Your website is a resource for reaching out to many others.

They don't know what your going through so i guess take it with a pinch of salt and enjoy your new family. pretty soon they will be running around and getting under your feet, but you'll love it.

Jake, Yes, I know what you mean; some people can have such funny thoughts -- like separating is NOT the right thing; but I think if it is at all possible and the girls were psychologically prepared, their lives would have to be better. Yes, I, too believe God lets everything happen for a reason and perhaps this was to get the world involved in how strong His power is. Don't let the pessimists get you down; you've all done the right thing and you will see that as time goes on.

I've visited this website almost every day since I heard about the girl, that was just a couple weeks before their surgery. I just wanted to say that they have been in my prayers, and their recovery has been so amazing. The strength and will the girls have shown is nothing short of motivating. I hope they continue to heal quicky!

In response to what was written on Wednesday. If it was not for faith in God and prayers I feel I would not be here today. I had Ovarian Cancer in 2000 at the age of 24. And my husband had an hunting accident and was broke up pretty bad and could not walk for 4 months. All this happened in a months time. And without the faith and prayers I truly feel that we would not be where we are today. God blessed us in 2003 with a spunky full of love and life little girl despite having ovarian cancer and only having half an ovary. So keep the faith. You all have seen with your own eyes what it can do. Hope all keeps going so great!!! mirvingrove@yahoo.com

Just remember no matter what church you belong to there is one GOD and he gives us what he knows we can handle. Until you go thru life's "Bombs" or walk in someone's shoes no one can say anything. God is great and I believe me I live that everyday of my life. He will continue to bless your family each and everyday. Keep on smiling and praying. Your prayers have already been answered.

first I would like to say your girls are beautiful. I am happy to hear they are doing well and I wish them and you continued success with the future procedures. I think that having faith is a great thing....I also thing that living in this country affords us the right and priviledge to worship any God we wish or to worship no God at all. I like to know about other religions before making any commnets at all about someone who studies that religion. I say good for you for stick up for yourself, your family, and your beliefs.

I wanted to comment on your last 2 posts. We have very dear friends who lost a 2 year to cancer last year. They have a webpage much like yours, and Tom (the dad) told us about all the horrible things people said to them. They are a family of great faith, too, and people had the nerve to tell them if they just believed harder that their baby (Big Ben) would be healed. There was much more, and it was hard for them to deal with during their terrible time of watching their baby die a slow painful death. I say unless you have been in someone's shoes you have no right to criticize their actions, and you never have a right to question their faith. Your whole family is so precious, and I wish you the best.

I just wanted to let you know how much I admire your family and your strength to handle all you have been handed. I agree without prayer and God's divine intervention none of us would be able to have the lives we have now. Sometimes the lot we are given may seem to be unfair or too burdensome but the old saying comes to mind - it goes something like this - If God led you to it he will lead you through it. Or how about the Footsteps poem when the man asked God why there were only one set of footprints at times and God said "that was when I carried you". Keep your faith and cherish your family. They have stood you well and will continue to enrich your lives. love and God bless

I've been keeping up with your family and have posted before to wish you well. I'm sorry to hear of the ignorant comments. Actually, it's not suprising after what we see happening all over the world. Quick story - My mom was raised Pentacostal but converted to Baptist when she married my father. They raised us six kids in the Baptist church. My mom & dad have returned to the Pentacostal church. I have raised my daughter in the Catholic church but she attends my famiy's churches when visiting them during the summer. My sister and nieces are Mormon. Their church is one of my daughter's favorite to visit. We respect each other's beliefs. I wish everyone could do that. Let all your kids know many, many people are praying for them. You've got a gorgeous family and I've really enjoyed the updates and pictures. I'm happy things are going well.

Hey guys, I'm so glad you've had a sweet homecoming. I know it must be extra physical work for you, but it must feel so good to have everyone under the same roof. I cannot believe that people have atatcked you and your religion. Your religious convictions are personal. It is no one else's business. Your religion has sustained you in a difficult time. I'm sure your prayers have helped you find answers in your time of need and helped you celebrate your joy. I did not see the negative comments. Only your response. Take care. I'm hoping Courtney is liking her new school. Love from Sarah, mom to 3 in Wisconsin.

Hi. I just wanted to say thanks.....over the last 2 months I have been following what has been happening in your family. It has given me a lot of inner strenght to see what you all have been through. My son will be having brain surgery in the winter and I hope that my family will hold up half as well as yours. He was born with left hemispheric dysgensis - the left side of his brain doesn't work. It has caused him to have seizures since before he was born. We are hoping that with the surgery, he will be able to live life without the seizures anymore. I am so glad to hear that the girls are home and doing well. Thank you for sharing your story with others...we all could use alot more of that.

I am sorry that some folks have a mental block that prevents them from see two lovely little girls given a chance to be themselves together or alone. May your entire family always be blessed. Keep up the great webpage, I love it. Debby Black

I have been following your family since the day of the separation surgery. 3 years ago, my son was born with a lot of health issues and had to have 3 major surgeries in his first 7 months of life. I do not know how we would have made it through the surgeries if we didn't have our faith in God. It is wonderful to have God to lean on in our greatest time of need. Keep up the faith. Congratulations on the successful separation surgery of your two beautiful girls. What a wonderful family you have. May God bless you always.

I am so amazed at how your kids are doing so well after have a 26 hour surgery and only in the hospital for 86 days. PTL!!! Well I read your comments you put in every day at least in the morning or in the evening. Just want you to know that your family is still on my thoughts as your girls go through getting well and everything. And I know that Maliyah still has to go in and have a kidney but in I will definitely remember you guys at that time.

I have been reading your website after I saw the twins on the news a couple of months ago, prior to that I hadn't heard of your wonderful family. I am so pleased the the girls are coming along in leaps and bounds! They are such happy looking wonderful children.It is so good to see them getting better and improving everyday and it is also wonderful that we get to hear how the other children are coping with all the changes in their lives. You have a beautiful family and I wish you continued happiness and that the girls continue to improve. Thankyou also for setting up this wonderful site so we cam also keep up with how things are going for you all. best wishes Sandra

To the Herrin Family, I saw an article in the newspaper many months ago about your family, in particular Kendra and Maliyah and their amazing story. I searched the internet to see if there was any updates or articles on how the operation had gone and found your website. I have quietly logged on every second day to read about the girls and your beautiful family. I have loved reading how well the girls are doing and also about Courtney's first day at the school and the boys being little terrors. All the updates. So it saddened me to read that people had put negative comments in your guestbook about your faith. I am not a mormon but I think that, like you said, you gain a lot of strength from your faith and heaven knows you needed it and still need it with the trials your family has faced. I just wanted to say that I thought it was disgusting and so unecessary that people felt the need to say anything like that. If your faith has helped you through this time then it may very well help someone else who needs strength or guidance - so whilst I dont follow the same faith I think that its important for you to include it on your site for others who made need that same strength or guidance. Thank you for sharing so much of your family's ups and downs each day and for spending the time to do so. Im sending all positive thoughts your way. Kendra and Maliyah are such cuties that hide a real strength and determination behind those smiling faces and are lucky to have such a caring big sister! Your whole family is just gorgeous and I wish you all the very best. I just wanted to post something from a person who appreciates your efforts - balance out the hurtful nasty comments! All the best Herrins! - Emma

I must have missed most of the negative comments too, I just read one. Although I am not a strong believer in God myself and personally I would also thank the medical staff, first of all, for this miracle, I do have a great deal of respect for the way your faith kept you all going. It's enriching for me to see how strongly you believe, and I hope that one day I will be able to do the same thing. But somehow it's not that easy when 'god' has taken a loved one away and you keep asking yourself why. Anyway, this is not a negative comment, please don't read it as such, I have a strong admiration for your wonderful family and I think your girls are unbelievably strong. The best of luck always for all of you.

I'm hesitant to post something here because I know you all are already overwhelmed with support, but I just want to say that I've been following your amazing story and it makes me so happy to see everything turning out so well for your cute little family. Often I'm discouraged by all the sadness in the world, so it was important for me to hear that there ARE some happy endings and that children don't ALWAYS have to suffer or live their lives in discomfort. Thank you for being a good example (great parents and two strong little girls) and thanks also for sharing all that you have. On an unrelated note, I'm not religious, but I thought your response to the negativity you'd encountered was appropriate and tactful. As you said, it's unfortunate that others feel the need to needlessly attack spiritual viewpoints, especially when your family is already going through so much. Just keep doing what you're doing and know that many of us have been touched by your experience.

Hey, I just wanted to say I think it is wonderful that you are standing up for the things you believe in. That shows everyone how you feel about things. It's better to stand up for what you believe in and not let people discourage you and your family because of your religon. Keep up the good work. Good luck with your lives and may things get MUCH better.

I have been reading your journal and your faith in God is truly inspiring. I am so glad the girls are home. Your family is an example to all. On a side note although I am from Oklahoma I am not a Sooner fan. Oklahoma State is the team I cheer. When all of the fuss came about last weekend my first thought was truly this "that there are more important things in life then the outcome of a football game, and I thought of your little girls and the great outcome that has taken place in thier lives." I wish them well during thier recovery and I offer my prayers to your family.

Don't let the opinions of some strangers somewhere out there on the internet get you down. You all are tremendous missionaries and witnesses to the power of God's love. If people don't get that much, it's their problem. Let them use their freedom of speech elsewhere; this is YOUR site. XD I just realized that this means that you'll be able to baptize K&M separately. That'll make things easier on them! ^^

Faith is a special thing. The best thing about it is that it is very individualized. While we may make the concious choice to worship differently, the one thing we all have in common is Faith... faith that there is good in the world, faith in ourselves, faith in God. Faith is one of our most defining qualities, yet a quality we all share and can relate to. Kudos to you and your family. Those girls are just beautiful! I have a set of identical twin girls myself (turning 5-years-old in November). I can see that Kendra and Maliyah are loved and cherished beyond all belief. Lucky girls. And, lucky family to have not just one or two, but FIVE beautiful rays of sunshine to bask in daily!

hey its cool to know that there is a websitee that is dedicated to the girls they are so brave to have gone through what they hae so far its really amazing i know that it must have been hard and i think that they will be really succesful in the future and i hope that they are ok and well.

Even though i dont know you or the twins i think that this case is special and its really really cool!!!! i hope you and the twins all the best. god Bless

I didn't read yesterday's update until this evening and I just had to let you know how great it is to know that your priorities are in the right place. God never promiced us an easy life, but He did promice He was with us. The negiativeness is just an indication that the devil is trying to keep you from being a positive force, giving God the credit, and reflecting God's guidance in your lives. Thank you for standing up for what it true. My prayers continue for each of you.

I have written once before and thought I would write again. I know that you must be mad about some people and what they say about your faith. But try to ignore it. Because you and your family need God. There's gotta to be somebody to spread the word of God around and you have helped by doing it. I know if God wasn't in my life I wouldn't be happy. Your family is iseprational to everybody. So keep up the good work. May God bless your family even more. With all the love in the world. God Bless, Brenda

This is my first trip into your guest book and the first message I have left. I have kept up with your girls since the seperationwith you updates you have left. These girls along with your other three children are beautiful and are very lucky to be being raised by such loving, educated,and informed supportive parents. So please keep your chins up and ignore any of the negative you are getting from the uninformed nuts out there. This journey that you are going thru is I'm sure rough at times but is having a beautiful outcome. love to all!

I too have twins who are 2 years, 4 months old. My babies are beautiful, a boy and a girl, so I know the challenges you have faced with a multiple birth, let alone, being joined. All the best, and I hope they grown to be the most beautiful people you can always be proud of. You are a lucky family.

Jake and Erin, thank you for the updates and allowing us to follow the girls, I have said this before, but they have stolen my heart. There was an interview done with them just before the surgery and since than, I have followed the story. They remind me of my niece Laura. They have touched my life. God does not give you more than you can handle, and you are an example of this. Take care Linda

Your family has been in my thoughts and prayers since a few days before your daughters' surgeries. There is no doubt that you have been greatly blessed with such joy and love. Kendra and Maliyah's smiles light up a room. I have a daughter the same age as them and it is so fun to hear about their personalities. They have a lot of spunk. When I first read about your family I felt that it put small worries in perspective. To be honest, I now visit your site when I want to feel good, when I there is something I hear in the news that is sad or disturbing, just seeing those 2 smiles reminds me of all the good in this world. I want you to know that I pray for your family daily, but I also want to thank you for sharing yourselves, you have no idea what you give back to people. The Herrin family is such a wonderful example of all that is good in this world. Thank you and God bless you all.

I am so happy that the girls are progressing so well and that you all are able to be home together as a family. Thank you again for taking the world on this journey with you. Your faith and strength have truly been inspiring. I am sorry that some people have used this as a place to degrade your religious affiliation and your faith. If they cannot look past that and the miracle that your beautiful girls are then they are the ignorant ones. Continue believing and sharing as it is inspiring to people from all walks of life!!!!!

Dear Brother & Sister Herrin, Thanks so much for sharing your family, especially Kendra's & Maliyah's amazing story with the public. I felt a very strong spirit, praying for Kendra & Maliyah during the seperation surgery, along with following the updates on August 7th & 8th. I believe 100% that Heavenly Father blessed your family with a miracle that day and continues everyday with the girls recovery. I will keep a photo of your family and some of Kendra & Mailyah in my scriptures to remind me of the awesome power of prayer and of miracles. I was watching the Amazing Race on Sunday and one of the new contestants, Sarah, who is a triathlete and has competed in the Ironman has an artificial leg. Sarah made me think of Kendra and Maliyah and how their future is unlimited now, especially with their loving family and growing up in the LDS church. I will always keep you in my prayers. May Heavenly Father bless the Herrin Family always.

Yeah for the Girls went home. Your updates and pictures were awesome. I am thankful for the lord to let the girls waited for 4 years to try successful apart. It is worth of waiting. I thank God for sending good doctors and nurses to take care of them. For now, Kidney is stand by for a little while for M and Erin. I hope the dialyis keep on going for M. It is important. The girls will get legs and very anxious to hear about them to use it and walk with it. I bet it takes a while for them to accept it. I am so proud of their older sister, Corky accept the way and her feelings about the girls. I bet she feels left out some of the times. I hope I say it correctly. Twins boys don't know what is going on but I hope you both and all the girls can tell them how and why when they get older. It is so wonderful for all of you to share. Erin, Do not worry about other people disagree or say negitives about religion or anything. I know that is bothersome. I don't like that too either. I am sorry to hear that when I looked up the update while ago. My daughter looked the pictures of K&M and very speechless but of course she asked me questions and all that. But she thinks it is neat and sad to hear they weren't suppose to be when they were born. But she is happy they are all okay. I was laugh alittle when one of the girl hitted with a Barbie and gave a timeout for first time ( alone). Oh, I hope they can figure it out and wondering. I am thinking They will say" No more time out and want to be together." I know it will be difficult and lot of changes for past 4 years. That is not too simple. Timeouts will learn on their own. Erin, Good luck with a kidney transplant near future and try to stay well. You are such a good mother and a great gift for M. She needs a kidney and hope it will goes well. You all keep all up and relax. I know kids keep you busy. But that is alright. Your kids are so cute and handful. I have two children, daughter 10 and son, 5. They are healthy. Once I watched on TV or something, one of your girl sign " I Love you." in sigh language. My children use some signs because I am hearing impaired and had Cochlear implant which it was sooo successful. My sign to the girls " I love you." too. Good luck. Keep on update about their processes. God bless you all, Sherryl

I love reading the updates and seeing the pics. Can't wait to see the girls with their new puppy. I was just wondering what their thoughts are now on being separated? Do they still need to touch each other a lot? When they did that after they were separated it touched my heart. God bless your whole family.

Dear Jake and Erin, I missed reading yesterday's update, which is unusual in that I have tried to get to it everyday to know how to pray to support all of you and to consistently post words of support. Therefore, I was stunned to learn today from your posting there are some who are following your story who feel called to use this forum to address negatively your worldview. For what it is worth, I want you to know I am a Evangelical Christian. I know, with total confidence, that God has blessed your family and given guidance and direction not only to you as K & M's parents, but to those who have cared and tended to their physical needs. How else could everything evolve the way it has? K&M's journey has been a clear testimony of His divine intrevention. Our Heavenly Father has used your lives to demonstrate how much He cares about the details of all of our lives ... His Miraculous Handiwork in both girls bodies provides the world with the tangible evidence of His love. His personal signature is all over this experience! Thank you for your continued honesty and willingness to share your lives (literally!) so openly with the world. Lastly, and most importantly, I am grateful to God that the girls continue to be on the mend, that they are experiencing joy in exercising their newfound autonomy and that your family's sense of togetherness is being restored. God is so good! Blessings, Bernice

Thank you for making this website available to the public. I understand and feel your testimony of God and you have strenghtened mine far more than you realize. Families are forever and this life truly is the time to prepare to meet him. I look up to your two little girls.They have so much determination. My husband and I have had some major health issues this last year and your girls have given me the strength and endurance I need to continue in my trials. We are truely grateful for our bodies and the health we have. I know that he hears every prayer even when sometimes it feels like they hit the wall and come back. He is aware of His children. Thank you for reconfirming that with your experience.

I realize more will come. I attribute both parents with holding hope in front of these two girls. God Bless you both

Iam so sorry about all the negative people in this world. K&M would not be as happy and healthy today if it wasn't for you being the perfect parents you are and the family support you have, You have a wonderful family. The girls look so happy in the photos posted. I pray that the rest of their recovery goes well, I know there will be some hard times ahead but when its all over you as a family will look back and know it was all worth it. I'm sorry about the negative comments you are recieving. People are so ignorant sometimes. You made the right choice for the girls and they seem to have such a positive attitude, all your children are adorable. Barb Gilland

Even though the girls are doing wonderful, I know this still must be a stressful time. All of your children are beautiful and as a mother I know it is alot of working taking care of everyone. I admire your strength and I pray for all of you. Pray is very important in my life and I know and feel it makes a difference in peoples lives. Thank you for sharing your lives. Even though I will never meet all of you in person, I feel I have shared in your experiences and come to know you. God Bless all of you. You are always in my thoughts and prayers.

I once had an experience that God helped us through. My sister's son was born with cancer and it entangled his brain. The doctors gave us no hope. Today that boy is 43 years old and has a family of 4. At the hospital at the end on his report it reads, "modern day mircale baby". The cancer has disapeared. Prayers were said all over the world for him, in every denomination and religion. God saved my sister's son. As for you, you keep your faith. I sure will on my end. God bless you all and take care of those little angels.

Hi Herrins, Just a quick note to say I am so sorry you have received some abusive comments from insensitive and perhaps, ignornant, people. As you implied, Jake, God is the God of all of us who have faith in Him. I have no doubt you experienced His presence before, during and after the surgery. My husband and I continue to lift up all of you in prayer. Thanks so much for the updates new photos...I am sure it demands time you would rather spend elsewhere. All the best Peggy St John-Heck and Dan Heck

I was absolutely appalled, upon reading your recent update, to hear that folks would have the sheer audacity to post negative messages to your family. Shame on them, and may they -just once, even briefly- be given something really, truly difficult to endure. May they feel the touch of God and know Grace, and come to a greater understanding of their -and all of our!- true ignorance, in the face of the Father's wisdom and knowledge. I, too, struggle with keeping faith first, due to my own health issues (I broke my neck a few years ago) and my 8 year old daughter's special needs. But we would never have made it without Grace, and I applaud and salute you and your family for clearly giving credit where credit is due. Your story, your family, your strength, and your daughters', has inspired my family in so many ways, and my daughter is constantly asking how your girls are doing. Their healing is truly miraculous, and their strength is contagious! I know you realize fully your blessings, but I will say anyhow, God bless you all! Yours sincerely, Chris McCreary

Hi, I just want to tell you what a georgeous family you have. I admire you so much Erin, for staying home with such a big family. I have one daughter that is 13 months and I think what a big job to have 5 children. What a blessing though. I pray that your girls will continue to recover and live healthy lives. I occasionally get the update from my cousin Andrea Merrill. Her daughter Carly went to preschool with K & M. They are such precious girls with smiles to stretch across the U.S. Remember to keep praying and I will too. Sincerely, Samantha Farrer.

Your family is very inspiring. I just read your update on the twins, you had commented on how some people were saying inappropriate things. You have probably heard this a million times, but what you think and how you feel is the most important. Who cares what others think. You and your family are VERY STRONG ! It is so easy to become discouraged. But Do not ever give up! You have came to far for others to slow you down. * When it gets hard to stand, kneel to pray*

Hello I live all the way in Auckland, New Zealand. About a month ago the documentry on the girls had aired on New Zealand television. As we silently watched the documentry we were overwhelmed with the work and efforts of the medical team. Just last night the update aired again on the progress of these 2 special spirits. I was grateful for the testimonies and your faithfulness in the gospel, knowing the Lords plan of eternal families. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints I was thankful on how you trusted in the Lord and that he has blessed your family for your faithfulness in the gospel. I will endeavour to watch the progress on these 2 beautiful girls and I know without a doubt they will touch alot of peoples lives. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR SHARING YOUR STORY WITH US. May you continue to enjoy every moment with them.

I hope you don't mind me writing a few times. I feel drawn to experiencing your journey with you. I read your note that people are writing negative statements about your beliefs, and I felt I needed to write. I am one who believes intensly that my beliefs are my most precious and private possesion. I have always had a problem displaying it, however I believe there is a plan, and all our experiences make us stronger in him. I also believe he he only give us challenges that we can bear. Boy that must mean something special here. You two are so young to take on so much, and you have delt with it... in an amazing way. I have a son that has been challenged with drugs. He is your age and just recently became a father. It has made an amazing difference in his life. This little angel has brought him back, he is completely devoted to her, and she is such a little daddy's girl. Her name is Trinity, and she truly is an angel. Without my faith, and prayer, I would have never survived this ordeal. Don't ever give up... always believe he is there. We're all here for you. God Bless you.. Helen

Hi All! I was readingyour up dates and you made reference to this guestbook so here I am. I just first want to say that I was thrilled when they showed you taking the girls home a couple of weeks ago. I am curious what some people said about the church and our faith? and why they wound you up. I would also like to know why you are giving Mayla your kidney? As my great niece Lori Michelle Bird (her mom is a Barlow,and you no doubt have heard of them and they are all related) anyway the baby had a wilms tumor and lost her kidney the other day and will be undergoing chemo. I was wondering if you could pray for her? And lastly, I am a children's story writer and have a book I would love to send all the children. Just send me your private address and such to my e-mail address. Bye and God Bledss, Launa

Glad the girls are doing so well! Also, its wonderful that your faith sustains you in light of any negativity you receive. I'm sure your decision to separate the girls was between you and God and that you chose what was right for your children. That's how it should be in most cases. You all continue in my prayers.

I have been following your girls since right before the separation. I am continually impressed with your faith and optimism. As the parent of a special needs daughter, I fully appreciate the impact of prayers, faith, fasting, and priestood blessings. Equally important, as a member of the LDS Church, I understand how necessary maintaining our faith in the gospel is, as there is so much to face each day. Your testimony is shared in each of your simple updates. Thank-you

Your children are all a gift from God and the success of the surgery was nothing short of a miracle. Keep us all posted and know that there are a bunch of peiople out here that love your family even if we haven't met and we will keep praying that all goes well.

Dear Herrin Family, I have been following the girls' surgery and recovery with great interest since the very beginning. I, too, have a deep faith, and pray for you and your family often. I am sure He has a purpose for these little souls. I hope to continue following their progress over the next several months. God bless all of you! Fondly, Suz

Dear Herrin family, Thank you so much for sharing your faith and experiences with the world. You have set a wonderful example as you have dealt with the media, spoken in public, and shared your experiences through your website. I know that because of your example many will come to know the Light of Christ. May the Lord continue to bless your family as you continue on this journey. You have taught us all what true faith is.

Religion is a wonderful thing, never underestimate the power of prayer. It has been proven many times that sick people who have religion, i.e. they believe in a Higher Power no matter what it may be, recover faster than those without. They also recover as opposed to just letting themselves go. Religion gives us so much to live for that we fight to the last breath to stay alive and well! I admire you all!

I was very upset to hear that with everything you and your family have been through that there are people out there that would be negitive and try to discourage your faith. On the upside, the girls looked happy to be leaving the hospital and to be home. I am very glad to see all is well and things are improving a little more every day. Please stay strong, keep your faith and continue to love each other. God bless you. Have a great day and enjoy every minute of every day, because it is truely a blessling.

Dear Herrin family, I have been keeping an eye on your girls since they were first on the news. I have been amazed at their recovery and the feeling that is conveyed by your family. I am not a church goer but I know that god has had his hand in all of this. He had to help guide the doctors and give you all the strength that you have needed. I know that I have felt god's presence as I have watched through the surgery.What a wonderful miracle he has given your family. May god continue to watch over all of you.

Hang in there! All of us of any faith are challenged simply because we have faith. Your challenge touches many of our lives, our personal challenge is dealing with Autism and fighting the battle of the century to help bring awareness to the world of how serious this problem is. No matter what we all go through God is with us. We have something that others do not. It is a gift. Treasure it always. My kids (Zachary Nathan (16), Teddy David(14), Eli Marc (13), JuliAnne Brooke(12), and Maggie Elyzabeth Joy(2)) check the website daily to see how everyone is doing. You have our love and our prayers. Keep on keeping on. The Ellis Gang ps. We would love to hear from you if you ever have the time to drop a line, be strong! jcmommaof5@yahoo.com

I have followed your story from the beginning. I prayed for your girls and glad to see the strides they are making and hope they continue to. There was a pull for me to continue to hope and pray that this dramatic change in their lives became a positive experience. Sorry to hear that some want to degrade you and your beliefs, but don't let some small minded individuals keep you holding onstrong to your faith. Your story has touched people in a way that is so profound. Good luck to you and your entire family! It has been a joy and a blessing to read your updates and and see the progress they have made! May God bless you always!

I just wanted to tell you three things. First, if there is anyone in the world that deserves a little rant time - it has got to be the two of you. With all of the stress on the two of you (even with all of the support and prayers) you get to rant once in a while! Second, you and your family are an inspiration for me and the rest of the world. When life seems hard, it helps to see what other people are dealing with (and handling with grace). It makes you feel like you can handle anything. Third, I am not a religious person. I have never belonged to any church of any kind... but, you, your family and those two beautiful girls have made me believe in "the force" as my grandmother puts it. Thanks for making us all believe in miracles! Please tell the girls that my daughters (4 and 2) ask me to check your website every day for updates and new pictures. They love seeing the girls getting better and better!

I am so happy for the girls, and that they are doing so well. They bring me tears of joy everytime I see there adorable little faces! I pray for your family daily, I love to hear about the girls progress, thanks for sharing it with the world. Do not let ignorant opinions (mostly due to misconceptions of LDS faith) get you down. I am a a convert to the church myself, & I have a testimony of all the blessings it has brought to my life & my familys. My Father in law received a kidney transplant from my mother and law a few years ago, when we thought it was hopeless for him & now he is doing wonderful. Keep you faith, & the lord will continue to bless you & your family as he has. My thoughts are with you. Love Always-Christon

HI there, I read your post about people and their opinions of your religion. Good for you. It is hard sometimes being a member of the LDS Church because people don't always understand, but the blessings that are received make it all worth while. I will email you some scriptures that have helped me so much and hopefully will help you. You might already know them but they are good reminders. Talk to you soon.

I am so greatful for your beautiful family. I am a Latter-day Saint and I know that miracles do happen. I know it is by God's will and the strength of you family that K&M have done so well. I love reading the family updates. You are blessed to have 5 beautiful children. It is nice to hear that K&M have adapted to being seperated. It does sound like that it is exactly they wanted. Your family has had its ups and downs, but it is my testimony that your family can and will succeed in all that you do, especially when you rely upon the gospel. I am sorry to hear that people are being so cruel concerning our faith. It saddens me that people could be so cruel, especially, since your family has been through so much. Hold to the Rod! Take care of your most precious and beautiful Family.

When it comes to faith and love, your family is the example that all of us should take a closer look at. True love and faith can change our lives and our world. Seeing the smiles of K & M humbles my soul. I can only imagine how strong they really are. All of your children are angels. Thank you for the daily updates and photos. It is the brightest spot in my day! As always, my prayers are with you every day.

They are the two strongest little girls in the world and they are so lucky to have parents and family like you that care and love them so much. I want to thank you for letting all of us know each day how they are doing and I love seeing the new pictures of them. I will continue to keep them in my prayers. Thanks again!!

I feel that your update on the 20th was well called for. I for one have looked at this website as a new beginning and a new way of thinking for me and my two little ones. I see things different and it is all because of you and your faith and your family. My daughter, 3, loves looking at the pictures and my son, 11, understands the importance of family and love and God. I have shared this with them and it has made them believers. Your family has changed my family for the better and I thank you with all my heart. I will continue to pray for you and K&M, those two little girls have touched the hearts and lives of so many, God bless you all!

Herrin Family, Thank you for taking the time out to update everyone on the girls. It is only with Our Lord and your amazing faith that your family will get thru this. I don't know much about the Mormon faith, I am a Catholic. But that doesn't mean that I will put down your religion. Everyone has different beliefs and that is not for anyone to judge you. All it takes is prayer and you will see God's amazing gifts. I am sure you see that in those 2 beautiful little girls. Your website is great. I love looking at the pictures, your family has come a long way. I will continue to pray for your family and I look forward to new photos of all the children. You have a beautiful family and you and your husband should be very proud. My best to you all, Donna Swanson

I am not even gonna waste time on "idiums". Thats a word from the Pink Panther. I am glad to hear that you want let this bother you or your faith in anyway. Can't wait to see pictures of the new puppy. I am so glad to hear that K&M are doing well. I was showing my 13yo the site last night and she said awwwwwwww thats so sad. I continued to explain what a journey your family has been on and I could see tears in her eyes. I told her that this is what family and faith can do. She now wants me to update her as well. I know that you have heard this dozens and dozens of times,but its amazing what the girls(and your family) have brought to all of us. My husband is leaving for a 911 convention thing Sunday. He's getting a quilt trip from me because he's gonna be in Salt Lake City. I keep telling him thats where my twins live. Hugs and prayers!!! Anige

Hello, You don't know me, but I'm actually from Prattville Alabama and when I read about your family and saw that you lived there once, I had to write. Prattville is a very large place now and is still growing! I have been following the progress of your girls and have enjoyed reading the updates on them and am so glad they are both doing so well. God is an awesome God! Don't worry what others may think or say, just pray for them. My family and I are pentecostal and we have family members that are Mormons and we haven't always seen eye to eye on things, but we all love one another very much. I wish you and your family the best in the years to come and pray that Kendra and Maliyah do wonderful in their lives ahead . Sincerely, Merrily M. James

I am not a religious person at all, but I do pray for your family to have strength, love, health and happiness!

I have followed M&K's surgery and recovery and I feel as though you are all part of my family. It brings a smile to my face to see the sweet happy faces of your children. Your daily notes help keep the "Herrin groupies"!!!! informed on what's happening and I appreciate that. Please know that prayers are being sent up to heaven for you'll and the children. They are very lucky to have the support from both of you and they are even luckier to know that their parents love and support each other. Your children will do great and wonderful things with their lives! I look forward to watching them grow-up and will keep all 7 of you in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you'll!

It's such rejoicing to see such progress every day. Have been joining you in prayer through this journey. A suggestion - The opening picture on the main page is absolutely adorable, but it's history. How about replacing it with an updated one, such as K&M enjoying the new puppy?

I just wanted to stop by and say that I am so happy that the girls are doing so well. How are they dealing with the wound vacs? My sister in law had to have one after her cancer surgery and it was very uncomfortable for her. I check the updates everyday to see how their healing is going and to see how they are adjusting to being seperated and home. Don't let the ignorant people in the world get you down. You have 5 of the most beautiful children in the world. God has definately blessed each and everyone of you.

I have enjoyed so much to hear your stories and to feel your faith in every word. I am still praying for all of you daily. Thank you for sharing your personal lives with all of us. MOM OF 4 IN KY

Blessings to you and your family. I read the updates and check the photos every day and am disappointed when there is no news. However as busy as you are I don't see how you are able to find time to keep us udated with the progress. I could not do what you do and I admire you and your family. I am sure you have a lot of support but the fact is there are only 24 hours in a day and you can only fit so much into a day. My prayers go out to you and your family and I am sure with your faith you will come through all of this just fine. Everyone has to believe in something in order to get through our trials and tribulations. Keep your faith and know that we are all behind you. Linda

I just wanted to wish your family the best and let you know that your faith has inspired me as well. It doesn't matter to me what religion someone is or believes in, it is the amount of faith that you all have in God. It is truly inspiring. I love checking your website and following the girls' progress. And although, many people have different religious beliefs, I do not think anyone can deny the faith that has been demonstrated. Thank you for devoting the time to this website, so others like myself can continue to follow your family. God bless and best wishes!

You are correct The Lords Hand is upon you. I am a mother of 4 demanding children and they run me ragged. I read all what you do on a daily and it seems so overwhelming May the Lord keep you strong. I am glad to hear that the girls are doing good as well as your other family members. You all have been thru so much it is nice to hear that the girls are enjoying their own space, I know it must be hard to see them hurting and all the side effects.I admire you & your husband it took alot of courage to come to your decision. I know the benfits of it all is well worth it. May God keep you and your family strong so you can keep doing such a great job. Nancy

It is so wonderful to hear that your little girls are at home and doing so well. I usually kept up with the news on TV until my Mom told me about your web site. No one can ever imagine just what you and your family went through, but I too know that the good Lord was there with ya'll through all of this. Never loose your faith. I have a 3 year old niece that was born premature and was not given a chance to live. She has gone through so much and now has many health issues to this day. Her mother and father have never given up hope and that is why Cara is still with us today. Much love to your family, and may God continue to bless your girls.

Hello to all of you! I first heard about Kendra & Maliyah the day of their separation surgery through an article on MSN.com. I was so fasinated by the story that I went to the website and read all of the past updates. I feel like I know all of you so well. I tell my children about their progress like you live down the street from me. I am so happy and completely overjoyed that they are doing so well and that the rest of the family is doing so well with this huge hurdle that you have to jump. There have been so many comments about religion and angels and I would just like to tell you that I have never been one that could worship my beliefs to others so openly. I know there is a God and I know it takes him for all things to be possible, great and small. I pray and I have experienced things that only God could do, but I still worry about what other people think. For you to be so open with your beliefs about God and to have taken the critizim from some, has been very uplifting for me. Remember that when you are this close to God, Satan has to work harder to bring you down. So be strong!! One other thing, you always talk about the doctors being the angels, and I believe they are, but don't think they are the only ones. To your children and to alot of us out here, the two of you are angels also. Your families' story has touched so many people including myself. I will continue to pray for everyone and I know that with God's hand, Maliyah's next surgery will be just as successful.

I just wanted to say everyone has their owns opinions. But why come on here and waste time in writing rude comments?Just keep your faith in GOD and my family will continue to pray for ya'll. My son is 4 years old. His name is Taylor and he says your little girls are his "friends". Hmmmm? So they have one that likes them here in Houston! Thought I would share that cute message. I really admire you guys strength. I mean, to be such young parents and be sooo strong... just amazing. I am only 24 and my husband and I have 3 little ones. I cannot imagine being in your shoes. But I know that you guys know the saying, "GOD only gives you as much as he knows you can handle." Anyways, keep up the great work and alwasy believe in GOD! Love always- Hannah Bledsoe

Hi Again. Firstly thank you for the beautiful pictures of the girls at home. They look SO happy, what beautiful girls they are, along with the other twins and, oh my goodness, your oldest is just as pretty as can be! I have had boxer dogs all my life and know your family will love yours. I have a handicapped son and they are a wonderful breed to have around children. It's almost as though they know which children are that extra little bit special. All of our boxers have been as good as gold. They take a long time to grow up, if they ever do, but are just a wonderful breed of dog. The one we have now is 3 and is called Bailey. Let us know how you all get on with the new arrival and take care of yourselves.

I would just like to say I am happy to hear that everything is going so well. I am not a very religious person, however sometime I have seen that is all we have to hold on to. I am sorry to hear that becuase of that you were getting some not so nice postings. My prayers are with you and your family. You have a very close family which is something you really don't see very much anymore. Your values are strong and your family bond is even closer. Please keep us all up to date as much as possible. Stick with your beliefs and never let go. Also, I don't see any need for you to say sorry for your posting on the 20th. You have every right to say what you feel.

Hello Herrin Family, I hadn't really thought to write till reading your last couple of entries, although I have been a faithful follower of the highs and lows associated with with girls' separation surgery. I take my hat off to all of you for standing for your faith, and most especially your family! There are many roads to the one God and each of us must choose the path that resonates best with us - the important thing is knowing that He is there, and while we have free rein in our lives, nothing is impossible with Him. I am overjoyed for you all that Kendra and Maliyah are home and have done so well - what a fascinating and challenging journey they have chosen to take. I know you will continue to take the hurdles one by one as you all have till now and I will continue to share vicariously in your lives via this website (BTW - what a marvellous idea to share your lives with us this way - you give so much to us - but hopefully you also gain from the worldwide support and interest.) It is wonderful to be able to follow such inspirational happenings in a currently rather sad and dark world. You folks are quite a light! My love and prayers to you all (and the new puppy!) E

Wow, it is great to see the girls are back home. It must be great to finally be sleeping at home in their own beds and able to do things on their OWN. I check in every day and look forward to all the great updates. I keep telling my husband that I checked in on my girls today and they are doing well. Our hearts go out to the entire family as I know it is a big adjustment for both of you as well as the other children, but it looks like things are going great. Keep smiling and take one day at a time. Darlene and Dale

There's an opposition in all things. You know what you are doing is the best for your family so don't even waste your time or energy on those who wants to bring negativity to your life. You don't need it neither your precious family! So don't bother reading or responding them, just delete, trash, ignore them. You are not alone, there are thousands of people like an invisible network praying for your family so for those of us who wants the best for you, keep posting updates and pictures! ;-) And promise us never again respond those negative comments, they don't deserve even a second of your time. The time and energy you spent responding those negative comments can be well spent with your daughters. You don't need to defend your faith because it speaks by itself. Save it for those who someday will ask you with a honest heart about it. Lord bless you and your family always and remember, your friends are supporting you and when all of this is over, you will look back and say "I did it and it was worth."

Hi to the whole family. I have been watching the progress of the girls for sometime and I am so glad that they are doing so well. I am also so sorry that others feel to critisize our faith. Yes, my husband and I are of the same faith and there in no doubt that Heavenly Father has had his hand on the girls since before they were born. They are an inspiration to us and their mission to touch the lives of all who come to know them is possible their great work. Thank you for sharing the blessings of our Heavenly Father with all so many. My prayers will continue to be with you. Stay strong and hold on to the iron rod for it leads us all home.

Regarding Negative comments directed toward your religious beliefs. My advice would be to completely ignore, and not respond to, all negatative comments from people about your religous beliefs. People who do that are the low-lifes of society, and the same mentality of those in mid-evil times who used to torture and kill anyone who believed differently than they did. In fact, these people are no different than the terrorists in the Mid-East who believe everyone not of their religion should be killed. Ignore them, God will deal with them in his own time. Your experience with what God has done with the surgery with your two little girls clearly shows the power of God, and how his power transends all beliefs and religions. My prayers are with you.

Hello Herrin Family, I have been follwing the girls' progress since I saw your story on MSN. I check the updates every few days to see how things are going for them and the rest of your family. It seems like just the other day they went into the hospital to have the surgery and now they're home already! I'm sure you get so many messages and I never planned on leaving you one until today. I was so surprised and disgusted upon learning that people are leaving negative comments to you regarding your faith. As if you don't have enough on your mind, now you're insulted on your own website! I am not a strong religous person but do believe in God, Faith and Hope. We do what we need to do to make our lives peaceful and happy, you have that right and no one can tell you otherwise. I have never felt as though you use the website to promote your religion. I too have been through tough times with an ill child and know firsthand that having something to believe in works miracles. Please don't let those unhappy, uneducated people bring you down, they're the adult form of school bullies. Be proud of who you are and what you believe in and don't let them put you down, especially on your website!I think you created it for people to support you, your daughters and your family, not argue about views on religion! I think you're amazing, loving parents to all of your childern and I'm appalled that there are people out there that can't see any of that past your religion. Thinking of you and your family.

I have logged on daily since I first heard about this great journey you all have taken. I've cried, laughed and have recieved such joy in my heart to see how your great love of family and God has gotten you through so many trying times. Please keep the pictures coming. It's so wonderful to see how well Kendra and Maliyah are doing. I pray that Kendra can get her feeding tube out soon and that Maliyah will be able to get a kidney as soon as she's ready. I know it is your plan for Erin to donate hers. I guess it's just a wait and see situation - God will let you know. Glad to hear the Courtney is doing well in school. I hope she has fun and makes lots of friends. The boys look great. I'm sure they love their sisters being home again. God bless you all and keep you strong in the months to come. I pray all the bumps ahead are small. You've certainly gotten over a hugh mountain. Keep the faith and I can't wait to see more pictures soon. Cathy

I work for Smith Administrators and have been following your families stories and struggles and enjoy reading the updates daily. The entry you made yesterday really hit me hard. I am LDS and have 3 children of my own. Although I know that this church is true and I would never want to be any other religion, I have and continue to struggle with my own faith inside, if that makes any sense. I have been through many struggles in my marriiage and family and at times have turned against all that I know to be true. I admire your strength and strong faith in our Lord. I can't imagine going through what your family has been through and being so strong through it all. I was so hurt when I read in your entry that there have been people that have been so ignorant to talk bad about ones belief in God. They obviously have not ever experienced a moment where they had to rely on a higher power. As hard as it may be, don't let these people bring you down. Your familyis awesome. Whenever you are on the news or I read something in the paper, I always seem to cry. You are truly and inspiration to me. My little girl was admitted a few weeks ago up at Primary Childrens for an Asthma attack. She was in the RTU for 2 days and was so scared. I reminded her that this was where your girls were and how brave they were and she was comforted by that. I appreciate you taking the time to read my entry. May God continue to bless your little angels and continue to heal them. Sincerely, Tara Barnwell

I just wanted to let you know that I love and fully respect your faith in the Lord, no matter what form it takes. My eldest son, who is now nearly 16 was born with a cleft lip and palet, at his first surgery I had not really found my relationship with God, and though every thing went fine the baby in the room with us was from a devout christian family. The night before we were to go home, he pike a high fever and it looked like he was not going to get to go. His mom got on the phone to their preacher who sent out the extra prayer SOS. Within the hour, his temp. slowly started coming down, and by morning he was normal. I became a believer stronger than ever that day. When he had his second surgery at 18 months, I was put to the test. He was supposed to be in for around 4 hours. 12 hours later, I still had not heard anything, my preacher went and told the nurses if we did not get an update, we were going to walk back ourselves. It turned out that everytime they brought him out of anesthesia, he would bleed profusely. I was 7 months pregnant with his brother at that time and the nurses and doctors did not want to upset me if they did not need too. Rev. Larry prayed with me, and Jeff as I said is now nearly 16. I totally love your family, and check here daily to see how you are doing. You have my prayers, and I don't think any religion is worth condemning, because in the end, we are all praising the same God, and it is wonderful that your children get to establish their relationship wwith God now and not later in life when they will realize how much peace they would have missed out on if God had not always been there. God be with you. Tanya

WOW - The good Lord has blessed you with such beautiful and loving children. I read your latest comment dated Sept. 20th and I couldn't agree more. There is a purpose for everyone here on earth, and if he wants us here then there must be a reason. God only gives us what he knows we can handle. Take care of those very gifted and special children and never give up your beliefs.

I'm not sure what religion you are a part of but I know that GOD is what gets me through my day and through the toughest things I've had to go through. I admire your faith in God and the way your family leans on Him to get you through such an amazing experience. THANK YOU for sharing this experience with all of us - it has touched my heart tremendously.

Thank you for keeping us informed on your website. I check it every morning to see how the girls are doing. I am thankful they are doing well and you are all able to be at home now. It is wonderful to see such loving and caring parents and families and uplifts my heart. I lost a son to SIDS in 2003 and know how precious each moment is with our children and families. I now have a 16 month old son and only hope I can give him as much love as you have given your children. Bless your family and I hope to continue to see the updates as the girls continue to grow and learn about their new way of life, separate, but still together.

Hi-I found the link to your website in a newspaper article and have been checking in on your family since the day surgery was happening. As the mother of twins and an appreciative recipient of God's grace, I have such a warm heart for your family. I check your updates every morning and say a little prayer for you all. Thank you so much for sharing your journey. All 5 of your children sound like special kids, and they're lucky to have such positive and gracious parents!!

Dear Herrin Family -- Thanks for all the great news on your family! I have been following your Web site since I first heard about the Maliyah and Kendra on the news and found the link by Googling it. Though I am not a deeply religious person, I have been keeping the girls and your whole family, about whom you have written so much, in my prayers. (It's nice that the site is about the whole family, because it shows how much you are about the strength and love of your family, beyond the stuff that makes the news.) I am a mother of two sweet kids, and I think about how I would handle it if either of them had a life challenge like Maliyah's and Kendra's. I somehow discovered that becoming a Mom makes you feel maternal to kids everywhere! So, every day I log on, I can't wait to check to see how "my girls" are doing. They are so sweet, brave, and delightful. I know you must be so proud of them, and for their big sister and everyone else in the family who has been there for you. Your postings give me a boost to my day, because they are a reminder of how much good there is in the world, made possible by the love of so many. I want to tell that I think it's sad that some people have criticized you about your statements of faith, but you must not take these comments to heart. Set them aside; there are always a few people out there in this wide world who will write such things. Instead, focus on the vast majority who rejoice with you and thank you for sharing this remarkable human experience with us. It was the mention of the negative comments in your posting today that finally moved me to write in your guest book, but I don't want to end on that low note. I want to say again how much I wish the best for you all, and hope that healthy, happy lives filled with love lie ahead for each of you. And keep telling us how you're doing. I can't wait to see the next pictures! - Mary

I'm sorry to hear that you've been having problems with complete strangers expressing their negative points of view. It just isn't right. I have been following your story right about the time K&M were to have surgery and I find it amazing how well they did during the surgery, as well as the rest of your family. I'm sure that was VERY stressful for all of you. And I couldn't believe it when I read the girls were going home ALREADY! That's amazing in itself!! They look so great and are coping so very well apart from each other. I know all this couldn't have happened with out the help of God. He is a wonderful comforter and excellent with handing out those miracles when they're needed. Thank you very much for allowing us to be a part of all this. It really is incredible! God Bless all of you!

Thank you so much for the continued updates. I look forward to reading about the girls each day. I was very dismayed to learn that anyone would send negative comments to you about anything. You and the entire family are heroes! God blessed each of you with special graces to be a part of the this family and to witness to others about faith, hope, and love. I pray that you will continue on this same path. Please disregard any negative comments. Just feel the comfort of His Presence and His Love. You are all in my prayers.

I have been following your incredible journey avidly from the start.Never have I been so moved and impressed with the courage,strenth,love and great intelligence of a any family. What motivates me to write now is yesterdays post regarding negative feedback. First let me say I am an athiest and a humanist,heavy on the "human".I am heartsick and astounded that you found it neccesary to defend your religious beliefs and the strenth you derive from it.If your faith produced a human like you there must be agreat deal of good in it. Please just focus on the love and respect that puors on you and don't waste tour precious time on the jerks out there. I guess if they were'nt around,how would we know who the good folks are? first le

Your family is an inspiration to all who are following your story. In this crazy world we live in it is through your family we see God's love. May you always be blessed.

I was really saddened to read that someone used this site to attack our belief in GOD, but that is how the devil works. But, then I read all the comments you have received praising GOD! What a blessing you are and what a Mighty GOD we serve! So much mightier than a few harsh words from a lost soul. GOD BLESS you and your family!!

I appreciated your testimony today. I too had a child in 2004. Lauren was born in February and was 10 and a half weeks early. She and I endured a terrible ordeal but have both been blessed to still be here on earth today with our family. When I look at your girls and then at my little four year old I think they may have been waiting in heaven together to come to their earthly parents. What strong little girls they are to have endured and continue to endure so much. They were chosen for this day and these experiences to strengthen us and those around us. You and your family continue to be in our prayers. With Love, Tha Kapp Family

Your girls are an inspiration to me. I look at their pictures each morning. They make me smile, and make me realize that I'm a pretty lucky lady in my life. Don't let comments about your faith get to you. What a mean-spirited thing to do. As an atheist, I get questions and comments that are down-right insulting. Don't let them get to you...consider the source. Anyone who would take your situation and bring that to the table isn't worth a discussion. This is America, and you're free to follow your own path! Too bad others can't do the same. Best of luck to your family and your girls.

I commend you for standing up for God and what He has done in your life and for your children. Be reassured that the low-lives who choose to condemn and put down are really just lost souls who need Jesus - just as we all do. Even those of a specific religion are capable of having the relationship with our Lord that people need and will ultimately be judged for not having. Just keep your heads held high, and know that "You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you." Powerful words. Millions of us have no doubt that God has his great big comforting hands surrounding your family, the doctors and everyone else involved with the whole thing. Just keep your faith alive and do not stray. God has rewarded your prayers and persistance with the miraculous recovery and Lord-willing continuous healing of your blessed children. We need to pray for those who don't have anything better to do than to judge and criticise your faith. God bless you all. All of your children are little miracles.

You are doing a great job. Don't let anyone put you down!! There is a GOD and because of him you have the most precious family. We that have faith and believe in GOD are lucky, I feel sorry for those who have no faith and do not believe in GOD and all we can do is pray for them. I enjoy your daily updates and I think that for being so young and going through so much and keeping your faith you are truly blessed. You are right it is not easy and no one is perfect and I don't believe that is what God expects from us, all he wants is for us to love him above all and to try to make him #1 in our daily walk, he never said it would be easy. Keep your heads up high and never let anyone put you down, as long as you have faith, God is on your side!! How wonderful is that?? God Bless You All!!

You are such special people and everyone of your children and each person in your family deserves only the best and all the love and support from everyone. You are such wonderful parents and I know how much God loves you and your children. I am excited for the crutches also. I can't wait to see those special angels just zooming around with their other siblings, family and friends. The courage of Kendra and Myliah and your entire family continues to inspire me. Thanks so much. Love Pauline

I am so glad that you responsed to that comment from Memphis,TN. I'm pretty sure that's who you were talking to, if not, you should of! It upsets me to think someone from my state, Tennessee, would be so judgmental. I think that everyone who comes to this site KNOWS who's in control of these babies. Just because you have a different faith doesn't mean you don't have a conception of God. I'm not sure if this will make sense but, my faith doesn't come from what Church I attend, it comes from knowing in my gut that there's something out there bigger than me taking care of everything. My GOD loves me and those babies know matter what!!! Know matter what church I go to, know matter what religion. I'm sure there's all kinds of different backgrounds that come to check on these precious babies. To me, that's what my God wants and my Jesus, he wants us ALL to come together as one. It's not about were we've been, it's about were we're going. And, to set there pointing the finger, well, my grandmother use to tell me that when I'm pointing the finger at you, I have four fingers pointing back at myself! And, the thing I don't like about someone else is the one thing I hate about myself. Some people don't have a clue to how you feel or what you go through when you have a child or children in the hospital for so long,I mean, a month can seem like forever, and you feel so-o-o-o powerless. You have no control of anything! How your heart just splits in half. But yet, they can try to give you advise and criticize. You know what, I pray for that man. God's taking care of your family, I just hope he has the same mercy for him!! Give those babies, all the babies, hugs & kisses from Jackson, Tn. They will always be in my prayers!!

Your family has been in my prayers and I am so glad that things are going well. Your girls are darling and it's clear that they are happy even with the challenges they have handled and will continue, with faith, to take on the ones they have in the future. The doctors, surgeons and other folks who have helped are more than likely angels in disguise! I believe that God has known from the start what he was doing. I feel sorry for the people who are knocking your faith - it shouldn't matter what faith one is. God loves each and every person no matter what. God bless all of you...please give those precious girls of yours a big hug for me. Kathy Shupe

I just want to say how much your little girls have touched my heart.I have twin daughters that are 30 now,so I know how much work they are, but to go through what your family has with such grace is a miracle in itself. You have such beautiful children, and your own faces reflect such loving hearts full of happiness. I just wanted you to know how much it has blessed me to watch as you share their progress. Thank you for sharing them with me and the rest of the world.It is truely a testimony of what God can do if we allow Him to guide us. We need more people to speak out and say as you have,"I have come this far because of the mercy and grace of my God, and because of the prayers of His people." So once again, thank you for being so brave and allowing God to use what was already his. For children are but angels whe have borrowed from heaven. Love & prayers,

I came to "know" your family about 2 weeks before the girls separation and have kept coming back to get to know them better!! You and your precious children (all of them) are a blessing. I do not know what religion you are, although it would be interesting to know because you do exhibit such great faith. I am a born again Christian, and know the power and love of the Lord Jesus Christ as my saviour. I appreciate you and thank you for sharing your family with us!!

I know that people can be negative about prayer and faith but if they would have had to stand where you and your wife has stood. They would know that God is the one that brought your girls through. I have been keeping up with your little miracles at work and this has been a blessing to me. I have a daughter that was born with Charge Syndrom my husband did not stand by me. You and your wife have been such a blessing.I know that if God had not been with me and I had not had the prayers of the area churches that I would not have made it. I know you and your family have already reaped some of Gods riches and I know that he has so much more in store for your family.

K&M are very beautiful individuals. From your pictures, your whole family is very beautiful. It is fortunate that your children have such supportative & wonderful parents. You seem to be very grounded with secure values. You both are the best role models for them in becoming strong, self-confident & value oriented young persons. Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to update us on their condition. People are challenged in life every day from so many different extremes. Goodness knows I have mine. And when I have bad days, I think about your famiy. I can't even imagine experiencing what you have had to endure with your daughters. My boy's are my life and I know I would do the same for them. That's what a parent is suppose to do. I commend you both. Thank you for sharing your experiences. No matter what my day brings, your updates and photos encourage me to be a better parent and to give thanks for what I have in my children (and your strong will gives me hope that I can do the same for my boy's.) All said, your children are very lucky to have you two (God knew what he was doing!) and if they don't realize that now, they will one day. Again, thank you.

I am so happy for your family. This is the 3rd time I have written you. I check on the girls daily and continue praying for them as well as your entire family. I am so happy they are home and you are all together again. God still performs miracles. Without Him, where would we all be? Thanks for keeping us informed about the girls' progress. You have a wonderful family!

I want to commend you on your entry about religon. I agree with you completely. Some people just don't understand, but if you have ever felt the presence of the Lord, there is nothing that can compare. I just wish that if people disagree that they don't try to put everyone else down. I will continue to pray for a speedy recovery and strength for the girls and all of you to make it completely through this. I am looking forward to the day when you report that the girls have walked for the first time apart. I am excited that the are getting their crutches. I know they will be so happy.

I am totally amazed on how fast the girls have made their recovery! God has truely blessed you, no matter what anyone (rude) is saying. You all have been a tremendous influence to this country in such a difficult time for your family, I don't think any of us could ever truely express, what your family has given to us; the opportunity to see a miracle happen and what genuine strength and curage truely looks like! I know that we will not get regular updates as time goes on, but thank you for the ones give us.....it still reminds us what life truely is about; undconditional love of family and god. God bless, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing your life in hopes to touch others! With great admiration and respect, Michelle, Christopher, Faith, Sydney, Piper and Payne!

I appreciate you taking the time to share your family with us and wish you all the best in the future. Although we come from different backgrounds I completely agree that the Lord hears all the prayers and that His work is being done. Continued blessings to all of you...Brenda

Just a note to let you know that you all have been in my thoughts and prayers all that way across the world in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea where my husband, daughter and I are serving the Lord as missionaries with Wycliffe Associates. My mom in Ohio told me your story when Kendra and Maliyah were being separated several weeks ago, knowing I have always been fascinated with the stories and lives of children of multiple births and conjoined twins as well. I have kept up with the girls progress and recovery since surgery by your website and daily updates which has been a delight as we have no television or newspapers here except what we get from the internet. The Lord is good and I am rejoicing right along with you all in His wonderful care and keeping of the girls throughout their extensive surgery and in these weeks following. Their surgery and recovery thus far is miraculous! May the Lord continue to bless you all! In His service, Deb Martin

i'm really saddened to hear that anyone would criticize your religous beliefs, when your faith has obviously helped you so much. i don't share your exact beliefs (i'm not even sure what religion your family belongs to, but as i choose to call no religion mine, i'm sure there are some small differences) but i do get the feeling that you, like me, talk to a god who is good and loving and cares for all people. i pray for your family and feel hopeful that you won't take offense because i don't do it in your church.

I think that God has truly blessed you with wonderful children, all of your children and each other. People like your family are an inspiration to those of us who should have more faith in God, not just in times of need but in all times.

I love all the new pictures of your family and the girls look wonderful and SO HAPPY!! GOD is so good!! I am so sorry that you have been getting negative responses, we just need to pray for them as they are allowing satan to control their thoughts. We are all Gods children, from all different walks of life, and are responsible for our own beliefs,actions and thoughts. Stay close to God and don't let these few try to tear down your relationship with God. Just pray that God will help remove their blinders. I continue to pray for your family. You are touching lives of believers and nonbelievers so HANG IN THERE!!!!

I always get on your website to check on the you and your family. But today I felt compelled to write to you about your Sept. 20 update. I can't believe that people would write negative things about your religon on your website. I'm sorry for that! They should not come to your site if they feel that way. The higher being is what led the doctors and nurses and you guys to get through this! Keep your faith, it's what we need to get through everyday life. Love to you and all the girls and the boys.

I admire and respect you, and your faith, and was horrified to read in your updates that others have expressed disrespect.Surely anyone can see how that faith has stregthened you all, and the love that surrounds your family is clearly visible in all of the photos on the website.

Everyday I log into your website to see how the girls are doing. These little girls and your family are an inspiration to me. I am very sorry to hear that someone has said negative things about your religion. I believe that it is ignorance. I have a counsin who didn't believe in God at all. We were all raised Catholic but many times we "catholics" go through the motions without understanding why. Anyway to make a long story short, she became a believer in God after she became a veternarian. She told me that in the operating room where she had performed the same operations over and over again that the simplest of technics sometimes would not work. The animal would die, no matter what she did. That is when she said there had to be a greater being and force to make the operation a sucess that was beyond her expertise. I believe this too. I am an attorney with an undergraduate degree in chemistry. I have decided to go back to school to study medicine. As I said before your children and family truly have inspired me. God Bless you all!!! Connie

I am so HAPPY for all of you! I know that feeling when everyone is home. Although you are happy it is very overwhelming too. Don't let others get you down. You continue to pray, live everyday to the fullest. Don't worry about yesterday or tomorrow. The Lord is Great and He will continue to bless you all. When I read your last update and you were talking about the waiting room, I know that feeling. When My daughter had her kidney transplants the Lord was with us and with the docs and it was such a strong feeling. I love it! Enjoy your family and I will always keep it touch. Bless you all. Kim

thank you so much for keep us up to date on the girls. You have to look pass all those nut cases out there that think there regilion is the only way. The only way is God's way. You seem to be special people and loving parents I just wish there were more young parents as kind and love there children as much as you do. I may never get to meet you kind people and your Beautiful children in this life but I am sure we will meet in Heaven. It doesn't matter what regilion you have chosen as long as it God's then that all that matters. We will keep praying and praying for those nut cases to that they will find the Lord soon. May the Good Lord give you strength and keep those girls safe and your other children too. They are all beautiful. Sandy Hertel, Cincinnati, OH

To the Herrin Family, I having been reading your updates ever since I learned of the twins seperation. I must say that I did pray for your girls and your family when I first read about you. I was very happy to hear that you to looked to the Lord and know that He was with the girls and the doctors when they had their surgery. Though I have not gone through nearly the things you have been going through, I have felt the Lord in my life many times when I needed Him. It broke my heart to read your update today that some people were making comments about your religion. Thank you for your response to that situation and keep up your faith. I will continue to pray for your family and I am sure there are so many people also praying for you. God bless all of you!

Dear Herrin Family, I just read you most recent update and I am heart broken. I do not understand why anyone would use this website as a forum to disrespect you or your beliefs! I am appalled! One of the greatest things about our country is our freedom of religion. We may not have the same thoughts or beliefs, but it is important that we respect each others rights. I admit that I do not know much about your beliefs, but I completely respect and honor your faith and trust in what you believe. I have prayed for your family in these trying times and believe that prayers are heard and answered in God's time. I believe that He has watched over your family and physicians and has been with your precious little girls every step of the way. I believe that He cradled them when they didn't even know that He was there. Your faith has carried through these otherwise impossible time. I believe that those who criticize or condemn your beliefs are frightened. They do not understand the faith and trust you have and the comfort that it brings you. Obviously, they have nothing to believe in. Maybe they should try getting down on their knees and losing themselves in prayer and they would begin to understand. If they don't believe, all they have to do is look at your family and they would have to rethink their lives. You are truly an example of God's love. I am proud that you have allowed so many of us to share in this experience. We may not have been able to be there with you physically, but you know our thoughts and prayers are with you always! I feel like we are a part of your family. You have done an amazing job with your family. Let the negative comments fall on deaf ears. Sadly, people will always criticize and ridicule what they don't understand. The important thing is that you understand. Keep doing what you are doing! You know that you are on the right path!! You have a special gift that many will never find. Faith. God bless your family!

You have such a beautiful family! Our family has been following your girls' progress every day since before the surgery, and my 12 year old daughter rushes home from school and goes straight to her computer to see the latest photos and updates. Thank you so much for allowing us to follow their progress. We love reading about them and seeing the pictures. It's unfortunate that people feel the need to post negative comments, but as I tell my three children often, there are a lot of miserable people out there and they want to do their best to make everyone else miserable too! It's obvious that you are wonderful parents, and there will be a day that K&M will thank you for being strong enough to give them the opportunity to have lives of their own. I am so thrilled that they are recuperating at home now! We will continue to keep all of you in our prayers.

I have followed your story from the day that the girls went for surgery. It truely is an amazing thing to go through everything that you have and to see your faith come through it all. I believe that heaven was definately looking out for you and your family. I believe that God only gives what you can handle and being told I would never do many things in life due to a disability I can tell you to never let anyone say you can't do something. I have accomplised everything I have tried to do and push my self to do anything that I want to do. Tell those precious girls that the sky is the limit and to settle for nothing less.

To the Herrin Family, Since reading about the twins and their upcoming separation, I have been keeping an eye on how they have been progressing and can not believe your family's strength and togetherness. The love and support that you give to each other shines through each of the photos and articles I have read. I only hope when I start a family they will have all of the wonderful attributes that yours does. It is great to see the twins doing so well! Thanks for sharing your wonderful story.

Hi there Herrin family! I don't know if you've had many messages from New Zealand, but your story has been shown on TV here a few weeks ago and i was enthralled by your beautiful girls story. I found myself crying and praying for their recovery. Tonight, we saw an update post surgery and it was such a thrill and a relief to see them progressing so well. Viewers watching the doco. were directed to your website, which I visited as soon as the programme has finished and i've felt such joy, to see the photos of these two brave & beautiful wee girls, back home at last and the wonderful family they are a part of. As parents and as a family, you're love and strength has been inspirational. Love & Blessings from New Zealand

Your girls have deeply touched my heart and I pray for them every day. I check your website every day to see how they are progressing. My son has identical twin girls who were born March 16, 2002, so they are only a few weeks younger than your girls. When they were born six weeks early, Jane Elizabeth was not breathing and had to be revived. Jordan Marie was fine. As I watch my girls, I see many similarities between your girls and mine. You have 5 beautiful children and you are very lucky. Please keep up the website. I am a believer in miracles, you have 2 and I have 2.

I just saw your beautiful girls on a television programme here and I wanted to wish you all the luck and strength in the world. I can't imagine how hard it must be for the girls both physically and emotionally to go through such a change and I am sending you lots of love and best wishes for all the hurdles ahead. I am sure the love you and your family obviously have for the girls will stand them in great stead for the rest of their lives. Good Luck to you all.

Last month I watched on 20 20 the story of your two beautiful daughters Kendra and Maliyah, which followed right up to the surgery itself. I found I was left with such an empty feeling by not knowing how they were recovering after surgery, so immediately went on-line and found your website. I think that you both have raised these two special girls in such a loving, caring way that has enabled them to adapt to their situation in their own special way. I think that they are increadibly beautiful, intelligent and oh so loveable, and I thank you for sharing them. I wish you all the best and send my love to you all, especially Maliyah and Kendra.

Dear Herrin family, don't let negative comments about your faith bother you. There's no need to defend or explain yourself. People should not use your guestbook to put your religion down or to mock your faith. You're woderful parents, you have 5 strong and beautiful kids, you have a great extended family. And you're an inspiration to a lot of people. Focus on the important things in your life and don't let degrading remarks get you down.

Jesus has been holding their hands so far and He always will. My best to your whole family. You are truely blessed. As for all the nutz you seem to be hearing from.... forget them.

Hopefully your life will become so normal that you just fade away.............. God bless you all. Have a Great life! Deb

I think that what the two of you have done for your children could only be regarded a wonderful. In times of need, we all need a God to look to and if we don't need this power, I do not think we would be human. I had a child die and if it was'nt for my faith, I would not be here..Try to ignore the religous comments, keep looking to God as you continue to care for your family. I personally think you are wonderful parents, who have been blessed with a beautiful family. You have been put to the ultimate test...love the children as Jesus loved us...Bless you and best wishes for a continued awesome healing for all of you... sincerely, Kris

As long as it helps you to cope with all this, it is perfectly alright. If other people would decide differently - just let them. I think you don't have any reason to regret yours so far. kind regards Marion and family

I am sorry that you had to endure negativity from anyone when you have been so willing to open your very life to the public. Recently I was only slightly used in the paper and things were twisted around about myself and my husband and our family and there were no names or photos given. I had a hard enough time with that so I can't imagine actually opening your whole life to the public and obviosly there are those who don't appreciate how brave that truly is or they wouldn't be so mean. Chin up and just continue to read all the positive comments. I've been at Primary's with my son for the past few weeks (like so many I know) and it hasn't been fun. I've actually seen you a couple of times. I can't imagine being in your shoes and I am sure the only reason you chose to open your lives to the public was for the good of others. That is so unselfish and brave, thank you for setting such an example. Sincerely, Another Mom close to home

I admire you all for your courage and faith. I know that faith is what gets us through so many trials. Heavenly Father has blessed you with a beautiful family because he has the confidence in you to take care of his precious children. May He always bless you.

Horray for you Jake!!!! You tell it like it is.... There are many of us out here that feel the same way as you do. So if people don't understand it, then they shouldn't knock it! There have been many times in my life I have felt on the verge of losing my Faith in our Church and the Lord only to have something real special happen that I know my prayers were answered or I've had a very special feeling inside that everything would be all right. This happened to me recently as my oldest daughter, a woman 40 years old, went through a bout of Cancer and the operation to remove that Cancer. She's not 'out of the Woods' yet so to speak, it could come back, but I pray every day that it won't come back. I know the Lord and His Angels were there to help the Doctors with your girls, or it wouldn't have gone so well. They are such sweet little angels themselves and I will continue to pray for them. Your family is such a sweet family and deserve nothing but the best that you can give them and I know you will do just that. Love Always, Marlene J.

Kendra and Maliyah, Welcome home. You have a wonderful Mummy and Daddy and your big sister must be so pleased to have you back home too. I guess you are enjoying seeing more or your handsome brothers too, although they can be a little messy and demanding at their age! They are going to be very spoilt though, having THREE big sisters! I am a long way away -- in Australia. Perhaps you could look for it on a map. I guess you have had letters from all around the world and have learnt where lots of other people live. It is a little boring being stuck in hospital beds and I hope that you dont have to stay there again many more times. I wonder if you have a world globe so that you can see where all the people are who are checking Mummy and Daddy's news of you. You have been very brave girls. You both look so beautiful...and I love your smiles. It is going to be a wonderful Xmas for your whole family this year. You are lucky girls. From Ann in the land of the kangaroos.

I am so glad to read daily how the girls are doing. It was disturbing to hear of the negativity you have recieved about your belief. So sad that some of the world is so negative...I have to chalk it up to ignorance. Not just in belief in God, but other things as well...for instance....My daughter was 20 weeks pregnant with her first born...and was hit by a drunk driver...it killed my Grandson in utero, broke her back, pelvic and hip....Being a Grandmother to Joshua (which was to be and is his name) and a mother to my daughter....people do not understand the grief we bare....not only for seeing my child's unbearable pain of losing her first born, but also for myself for losing my Grandchild....That is ignorance....I can only assume that they have never in there life had a complication as your's in there life, or the one my family went through....thus the ignorance....Please know that there are many people out there that truly believe in God, even when we lose such a little person and ask the ulitimate question we all do...WHY? We wouldn't be human if we didn't..When the time comes for the Lord to see us all home, only then will they come to realize that God is the ultimate devine being. God Bless your family as you travel this road of recovery and may he give them a long and healthy life to enjoy with you and your husband....You are amazing people with amazing strength....

I cannot imagine the anguish and emotions you have gone through these past years and especially since the surgery. We have 5 perfect grown children of our own, so we feel so very fortunate. I know the Lord has blessed your family and will continue to do so. I want to thank you for putting your story in the Church News which has allowed me the opportunity to read about your twins. May God bless and take care of you and all of your family. Respectfully, Bill Themar

This is my third entry in your guestbook, my fourth e-mail to you (the first was directly to you shortly after the girls' surgery, in which (among other things) I thanked you for making me proud to be a native Utahn). I was stunned to read today that some have chosen this forum to criticize you for your faith and beliefs. I am no longer religious (my religious background is the same as yours), but I would never critize someone for remaining strong in their faith and relying heavily on their beliefs in the face of the challenges you've been given, and PARTICULARLY not in this forum dedicated to Maliyah and Kendra and in which you have shared yourselves and your very personal experiences with the world. Your response in your update was filled with grace. In my reading, you have never used this site to proselytize; you have simply been honest and open in explaining the foundation of your beliefs and provided links to those who might be interested. You should not feel compelled to explain yourselves, nor to share any more details or pictures about your experiences than you feel comfortable. You have opened yourselves to the world and we are grateful, and once again you have made me proud of being a native Utahn. Thank you, Jake and Erin, and blessings to you all.

We just wanted to send a short note to let you know we started keeping up with the girls since the surgery. We have prayed for them daily and have loved checking on them everyday. Your love for your children comes through the words and the pictures on the site. Your faith is also apparent and you should not have anyone question or belittle that. Yes we too believe that God and his angels got the girls and your family through this miracle and also showed some of us out here the power of his love. Best Wishes, to your family God Bless, love the Kelly's

I read your update today (9-20-06) and am sorry that people are being critical of your religion. I have a feeling this isn't what Jesus would want them to be doing. I greatly admire the LDS religion, even though I am not LDS. Your family values and strong faith are things we should all strive for. Thanks for sharing your family's special journey with the world. Your family is truly blessed and God will continue to bless you in the future.

I am so sorry it has taken me this long to take the opportunity and pleasuree to once again sign this book. I read about your family twice everyday, and every time I do, I am overcome with a sense of joy. When I read about the time out given (after the barbie was thrown) I just cried. It is amazing how much we can take for granted, until we realize how different our lives could be. Your family is absolutely wonderful, and I am truly honored that you have let the world share your experience. Once again THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart. Mother of Two and avid reader.

I follow your updates every day & feel like I am part of yor family. While we do not share the same religion, I know that we share the same belief in our God. We know the power of prayer & believe that God is with us always & he will carry us through whatever His will is for us...We pray the same prayer "Thy Kingdom Come...Thy Will be done..." I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at age 53 (Dec 1993)& did not expect to have more than 5 years -- even after 6 months of Chemotherapy. My LDS friends put my name in the Temple while my Catholic friends led prayer circles & offered daily mass for my well being. I know that it is through these efforts & the Will of God that I am still in remission. God Bless your entire family & give you the strength you need to get through your daily activities. K&M are beautiful girls with a great spirit - I look forward to more pictures & your continuous updates. Much love from an "old granny", Millie

Have followed the progress of your beautiful little girls and am so happy it's worked out so well. I realize your faith has gotten your family thru a very difficult time and I'm so glad you have had that to hold on to. You come across as a phenomenal family and I wish you all the best as I realize the challenges will continue but I know with your faith and the help of the medical profession and the courage of Maliyah and Kendra you will triumph.

I watch this sight every single day and can not believe that you have had comments about your religion?? It shocks me - what does that have to do with what these little girls and your family have gone through - the nerve of people questioning your personal religion!!!!!! So thrilled to see the girls are home and doing OK - it must be a very busy household - sure hope you have lots of help!

Hello, =) I have sent a few GOOD WISHES emails to you and your family. I'm sure you receive hundreds, maybe thousands on a regular basis... It is great to read the recent updates and photos of your WHOLE family now at home. It is also interesting to hear of the girl's new self-discovery as "physical" individuals. Please, keep those of us who's hearts go out to your family and anticipate hearing the continued joys and successes of the girl's new journey. I can't wait to see pictures of them getting around on crutches and to see the joyful sparkle on their faces while using them. ~Kendra~

I was so sad to read your latest update. This is a tough time for your family, yet very exciting and you have every right to thank God and your faith for getting you through this. Negative comments about your religion are simply ignorant. I pray for the best for your entire family. You deserve great blessings. Last, I would like to thank you for the picture on your homepage. I log in every evening to check on the girls and that picture makes me smile every time! They are beautiful then and now.

Your faith is wonderful and I know it is helping you daily. Oh I know you felt it during the surgery. God has been with your special girls all along.

Your family is such an inspiration. My husband is not a member and I am always looking for ways to help him see how our church is so much more than the others. Your outlook and positive thinking, combined with faith is a wonderful example. You can see your oldest daughter is more mature than girls twice her age. Just the look of love in her eyes as she held the girls when they were first born brings tears to my eyes. I am sure this has been both a trial and source of strength to you all. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. Thank you for sharing your life with all of us. All our love, Debbie Ramirez

Your family is such a blessing to read about. I pray that God will continue to Bless the whole Herrin Family. Know that we are still praying for you all.

I just read your update today and felt both joy for your tremendous faith and understanding and sorrow that you had to experience the negativity of some unfortunate souls who haven't yet learned about compassion and love. There is a community of souls on this planet who believe in love and caring and who support each other. You are blessed to be in that community. I admire you and Erin for the strength and love you have for each other and for your children. And what a blessing to have the support of so many people around the world! So much goodness is possible when we share. Thank you for opening your family's experience to us. And I send you my warmest regards and prayers.

You and your family are truly a testimony to what prayer can accomplish! I have been following your story since just before the surgery and have been sharing with friends and co-workers your updates. "The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" is one of my favorite scriptures to meditate on, and it certainly proclaims the truth. God bless all of you and I thank God for making it possible for you to share all of this with all of us.

Hey Guys, We are twinstuff members and big fans. Sophie and Sally are 27 weekers that are now 9 months old and doing great. We read about you every day and pray, pray, pray. Today's update was great. It is so wonderful that the girls are enjoying their independence and getting to make some of their own decisions. So fun! I am so terribly sorry that anyone is giving you any trouble about your religion. When S&S were in the hospital we had folks praying all over the country in whatever religion- anything that would help. I believe very strongly that g-d had a handle in Sophie and Sally's great outcome. Our Sophie had a Grade IV IVH, 50% of those cases the little one passes. She is doing great- so far, so good. Just a few weeks developmentally behind her big sis, but she is hitting those milestones. So- you have some prayers your way of the Jewish variety! We will be thinking of the girls in temple this weekend as we celebrate the jewish new years and thank everyone for all of their kind thoughts and good wishes. Here is to an even better next year!!! Love, Debbi, A.J. Sally and Sophie Simsbury, CT Debbi & A.J. (on twinstuff)

I thank the Lord above for you and your family and for standing up for what you believe is truth. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God was with those girls during that surgery, now, and forever! And with your family in the waiting room that day! Praise God for people like you who are not afraid to give God the glory, honor and praise that he so deserves. I also am of a different faith, but our God is the same!! Let's not allow these negative people to bring us down or discourage us, lets gather each time we come to this site, to pray for them just as we do K&M and yur family. I pray some day they also will receive Christ as Lord and Savior. Ignore them, they only want attention, but pray for them also. Regarding the girls, it is awesome to see how well they are adjusting to being seperated. I love looking at the pictures and even though we can look at the pre seperation pictures, I really enjoy the after surgery pictures!! You have a wounderful family and I thank you for the time that you take each day to share their lives with us!! That means a lot to many of us because know you are so busy with their care and daily lives of your other children as well. God Bless!

Herrin Family, My heart broke as I read the last update and the points you had to bring up on religion. I am LDS just like you and you have been such a inspiration for me. To see the miracles of God second hand (updates) has been amazing. I am so sorry you have had to deal with other comments. I read your updates everyday and I am so happy when things are going well and so sad when they are not. K&M seem as though they are such special spirits as do the rest of your kids. I am expecting our 2nd right now and there is nothing in the world more important then family. You show this to me in so many ways. Thank you for the sweet spirit that all of you so willing share with me. I wish you the best. God Bless. Abbi

I have been told all my life that if you put God first, family second, and career third, everything else will fall into place. We have had some hard time (not like yours), however, I know that because of this we have been blessed many times. God always answers prayers, sometimes the answer is not what we want, I beleive that this makes us stronger. May God continue to bless your family.

Don't feel badly about those who write negative things to you. Know this -- G-d makes miracles happen. We don't always see it, but once in a while, in this very modern world, he still makes miracles that we can see and feel and touch. You've experienced one, or maybe even several. What folks say is immaterial, and very unimportant. Everything negative is just plain JUNK!! My husband and I are jews and we have followed your story in your updates daily since the operation. Our prayers continue to go with you. We wish all of you a wonderful future. Phyllis and Barry Satz sharonhg1@comcast.net

I have watched with interest and have prayed for all of you. I have never ever taken into consideration "your religion" whatever it is, when I have prayed, nor do I care. I do know that in "our religion" we believe in a loving God who answers prays and never gives you more than you can bear. So, whatever your religion there is ONLY one God and He watches over all of us. So, please do not let people bother you and know that people of all faiths are praying for you all. God Bless you All!

I was on MSNBC.com to day and read the article at the end of this comment and immediately thought of Kendra and Maliyah and of course Courtney. It is about a girl who dances with a prostetic leg and I thought these girls will now be able to do what ever they want and what a blessing that is. Before I posted this though I read today's update and was so happy to read your reply to those who have written negative comments regarding your religion. I am not LDS, I won't say what my faith is because I don't think it matters. I believe that no matter what your faith is your family has definitely watched over by a higher being. I may not believe the same things as you but your family has all of the respect I have to give. I look forward to reading your updates about your beautiful family. I have seen an update about Courtney and her new school I hope that she is having a great time. Thanks for the updates and I will continue to pray for your family no matter what my faith is. I hope everyone else does to. www.msnbc.msn.com-id-14895335(if you want to see the article you will have to replace the dashes with backslashes since your site won't accept them)

Your comments today show, once again, how mature you and your wife are. Indeed, God hears all prayers, and you were so very gracious in your comments. Your family is such an inspiration to so many.... of so many religions! "In the garden of thy heart, plant naught but the rose of love." Baha'i Faith

Thank you for the updates. I check them daily. Thank you for taking the stand that you did regarding your beliefs - not that you need to explain them to anyone. Know that there are many, many of us who believe in what you are doing - and admire and respect you for it. Please don't let the negative comments get you down.

I'm sorry for the negative comments you are getting regarding your faith. Don't ever back down on that faith. It has taken you through this and has brought your little girls to this point. I wasn't in the waiting room with you, of course, but I felt that same spirit as I watched the news on TV telling about it. You definitely have the guidance of the Spirit and a strong testimony. I can feel the spirit of your family in your photos. I admire each of you for your strength and testimony. I have a cousin who lost a leg when he was 6 years old. He is now an adult and has three children. He has opted to use crutches rather than a prosthesis and has done great. Just thought that might help you.

I would just like to say that your children (all of them!) are completely adorable. I read about your family's story on cnn.com at the beginning of the semester and ever since then I have been checking up on the twins to see how everything is going. I love the front page of your site; not only is the photo so sweet (that two-dresses-in-one is awesome!) but your story of hope, faith, and perserverence (along with a little bit of technology) always puts a smile on my face. I hope you all are doing well and please say hello (+ high fives!) to Kendra and Maliyah for me! Much love, Carly Romeo car4t@virginia.edu

This is my third time to the guestbook and I have checked the updates daily(sometimes twice a day) since before the girls had their surgery. I am very disappointed that anyone would have anything negative to say on this site. And, I truly hope this does not stop you from updateing those who truely care about your family. This has been a great learning experience for my daughter who is 8. She has learned what the power of prayer can do. She knows that the prayers she says everyday for the girls helps them. And, she looks forward to reading about them and the family everyday. Thank you again for allowing us to be part of your extended family. God Bless you and your family.

Thank you so much for sharing this experience with the world. We live in Bountiful and are now serving our mission in Eugene, Oregon. We have been able to follow this separation through the whole process and what a spiritually uplifting experience we too have enjoyed. God loves all of his children and he certainly loves Kendra and Malayiah very much to allow them to have this special experience. We love you and pray for you that you will have the strength to continue the care of these children. My late husband had a kidney transplant and that was such a special spiritual experience in itself, there is much more ahead of you, but know that there are many people that you can lean on and celebrate with. I have shared this on a daily basis with our missionaries and they also have been uplifted as we discuss what is going on here. To live without God in your life is no life at all. To know God in your life is the only place to be. He lives, he loves us and He, His only Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, will return again and we will be able to feel his love personally. I'm sure that he has cradled these girls with his love to get them where they are today.

There are many, many people checking in daily and cheering them on. Don't feel for one minute you ever have to explain why or why not you have chosen to do something. You and your family are an inspiration to a lot of us.

Good Afternoon I have been following your story everyday. It was almost as if I was there the day of their surgery. When I saw the first pictures of them separated, it gave me chills. It is so disheartening to hear the people have taken the time to express their thoughts on your religeous beliefs. I too believe that in addition to the wonderful doctors, God had a big hand in it as well. I just think that while people are entitled to their own beliefs, here is not the place. I find it overwhelming that you have allowed all of us into your lives. I am grateful for that. Stay true to your faith and your beliefs, and don't worry about what others have to say. If they feel that way they do not need to be coming to your site. I admire you and your family and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I don't know that I have ever seen a family with more love that you all show. God Bless!!

I just read your update for today, September 20 th. I love it and I am here to tell you I respect the things you have tried to convey to others. I am a witness that God DOES hear and answer prayers. Every person in life is entitled to their own belief. That is the beauty of life. The beauty of a free country. For those who don't believe, my heart truly goes out to you. It is sad when you judge others. I believe there is an old saying that goes somewhat to the effect of, "Don't judge another until you have walked in his shoes". My wish for everyone is that very statement. Do not judge others. To you the Herrins, you have our complete respect and support. I pray both night and morning for your family. Again, I am a WITNESS that God HEARS and ANSWERS prayers. May God bless your family. You have a beautiful family. The girls are my heroes. Bobby Jo Jackson

Once again, I wanted to post and let you know that the girls are in our prayers every day. I am of a different faith (Orthodox Christian), but GOOD HEAVENS! why should that stop me from praying for your sweet girls? I'm sorry that people have been using this forum for negative notes. I have a four-year-old (Patrick), and whenever I look at him, I think of K&M (and say a quick prayer). Thank you so much for sharing your journey with all of us, everywhere.

I just read the September 20 comments and I continue to be dismayed at people for condemning others and their religions and beliefs. Religion is a personal experience and if you don't believe like someone else, at least keep your mouth shut and let them have their beliefs and you can have yours. The struggle in the middle east is due to religion and misunderstanding. Your two little girls are a miracle and God Bless You

For reasons I can't explain, your girls have captured my heart. Maybe it's because my twin granddaughters, who are now 6, resemble them in so many ways.

Thank you for the wonderful posting. I too agree with you, we should not judge each other. I am of different faith than your family, but yet I admire the strong faith and bond your family has. It makes me believe more in God myself, and too try to make him a #1 priority in my life. Your stories and the stories of others I follow thru similar sights, restores my faith and my desire to help others, no matter how small the help. Sometimes the help can be just a listening ear, or just that next ticker on the guestbook to show someone came to check on your family. God provides miracles each and every day, and your family is living proof. Thank you for sharing your family with us.

WAY TO GO JAKE!!!! No one, with any compassion in their heart, should ever pass judgment upon another for their beliefs or spiritualty. I'm protestant and prayed for the girls and the rest of your family everyday as did, I'm sure, Jewish, Muslim, Catholic, Church of God, Church of Christ (I could go on & on) believers. Our Lord, our God, our Savior, what ever your teachings, watched over these little girls and their wonderful surgeons. What a time for someone to choose to be negative or debate one's personal choices. Good job Jake. Kiss the girls for me. Love all the new pictures.

Hi Herrin Family, I just read your latest update. It is so wonderful how your lovely daughters are doing. I love reading the updates and seeing the latest pictures and thank your family for sharing them with us. I'm very disappointed to read that some of people have made negative comments about your Religion. Although I'm a Catholic I truly believe in God and how many times he has helped me through difficult times in my life. I believe we all need to be christians. I also advise these people to read the comments on the Website for the Carlsen twins from North Dakota who were separated in April at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. I heard that before the separating of their conjoined twins, the doctors, nurses, family and everyone involved along with their minister went into the chapel to pray. The minister also blessed their hands. I am sure they all felt the presence of God throughout the surgery. As your family is, the Carlsen family are very close to God and expressed that many times on the comments on their Website. I thank them also for sharing the updates and latest pictures of their daughters. God must pick the most wonderful parents who have a lot of faith to raise and nuture these special girls. I again thank your family for sharing. Love the updates. God Bless You. Helen Janni

I'm an athiest, that's MY personal choice, it's what works for ME. I would NEVER "preach" to anyone about what works for them. Your faith brings you strength, comfort and joy.

Thank you for making your family part of all of our lives. It is simply amazing how we have been kept aware of this most unusual situation in such a "normal" way. You clearly are just everyday people who have had this extrodinary thing happen, and you have been a lesson to all of us in how to face life toughies. The magic of computers has made this available to us everyday, like a serial on the radio or t.v. Any people who have commented on the "God" aspect of this, only prove that they are grappling with those type of issues themselves. You have touched our lives in all sorts of ways. And, oh by the way, you couldn't have a more beautiful, photogenic group of people as family and care givers. Gail

I'm sure that God is with you and your family. I think you are an inspiration to families everywhere, no matter what religion they are. Also, I want to take a minute to commend your oldest daughter. It must be hard on her with the twins getting all the attention, and I'm sure stressful for her as well - worrying about them. It is to your credit that you have raised your family well and with love. It shows. My prayers are with you and that you find the strength you need in this long healing process.

I am so thankful for the girls doing so well. It thrills me to hear about them being able to make choices of what they want to do. So many of us forget from day to day how blessed we are to be able to make just a simple choice as to when to go to bed. I am so proud of Kendra and Maliyah and the strength they have. I have learned to love them and your family. I must say I was so thankful for your last update and the things you wrote about your faith and beliefs. I can't understand how anyone could be critical of what you are doing. It is so apparent to me that the decision to separate the girls was completely in God's will. I thank Him for you and your family and the blessing you all have been to me. Continuing in prayer, Betty Jean

I must have missed the negative comments but pray that the Lord will lift you up above them and continue you to give you and your family the strength for what lies ahead. I read with much joy about the Kendra bopping Maliyah over the head with the Barbie...how you must have prayed for that normalcy! It truly is wonderful. My prayers will continue for all of you, especially those beautiful little dolls!

I just want to let the whole family know how excited I am that the girls are home and doing well. I wish the whole family nothing but joy for years to come. I am so thankful that you have shared your experience with all of us. I am so moved by every single entry that you put in for updates. The girls, actually all the kids, are gorgeous. You are so blessed to have such a wonderful family. Every night when I put my 14 month old daughter to bed, I way a prayer with her and I always include a prayer for your family. Once again, thank you for sharing your lives with all of us and I hope that you continue to update us for a long time. Enjoy every single day with family and know that there are a lot of people that care deeply for all of you. God Bless!!!

I am so thankful that the girls are doing so well! They have been in my thoughts and prayers daily. I check your site several times daily to see the updates. I am aghast at the thought that anyone would bash your religion. I am not that familiar with LDS but the ones I have known have always been great examples of God's unconditional love. Stay strong and hold to God's unchanging hand for He will lead you through all the trials in your life. The girls are such an inspiration as are you. My hat is off to you for doing such a wonderful job of parenting and loving your children. Take care and keep the updates coming!!

I have been keeping up with the girls every day.. I am taken back by your entry today though..How in the world can anyone blemish your miracles? I don't care what your practiced faith is.. I believe in God..and I know He is alive and well and hears our prayers. I also know it is God who gives life and takes it away.. shame on those who are being cruel... shame on them. Best wishes for continued good health and news!

Dear Herrin Family, I am so pleased to see that your sweet daughters are back at home and doing so well! I have religiously read your updates on a daily basis since the seperation surgery. I am a twin. My sister and I are fraternal (we're 43 years old). So, I'm always interested in twins and have just been SO captivated by your story. Through your updates, I feel like I've been there with you the whole way! Thank you for your updates and pictures, your family is a true inspiration to us all! Oh, and being a twin, I must say that you ABSOLUTELY did the right thing in seperating the girls. I know that they will thank you in the future. You have given them the best gift of all. Take care and good luck for continued progress and with the "final" surgery. Clare Myers

Welcome home GIRLS!!!! I am so happy for all of you, it must be such a great feeling to have your whole family under one roof again. I was so saddened to hear that there were people who used your generosity at sharing your story to try and make a point about something as personal as religion. Don't let it dampen your spirit because it is infectious, and some people just have too much time on their hands! Thanks again, Nicole in Pittsburgh

I just finished reading your latest update and it brought tears to my eyes. I have been following your story since I first heard about it, pre-separation. I have prayed and thanked God for all he has done for your family and the inspiraton you have been to me in this short time. You are a family who has worked very hard and faced obstacles along the way that most of us don't, yet still you keep your priorities straight and give credit to the One who gives us strength. Please do not let those who choose to disagree with your choices discourage you. As I look at the pictures and read I tear up each time. My tears are not those of sadness but joy. I see so much love, joy and peace in all of you, there is no reason to be sad. I know that K&M will growup to be wonderful, well adjusted young ladies. I wish for you all only the best that life can give. Thank you for sharing your story with us. You have touched many in a very positive way. And by the way I am of a different religious affiliation than you. I hope all continues to go well and I will continue to keep you in my prayers.

Forget all the negative BS (excuse the exprssiion). I believe that God is there regardless what Relgion you are. I was Baptsied Mormon even though I am not a follower anymore. When my 2 month old went in for her second surgery I had her Baptised Christian, and when we looked back at the pictures, her hands were crossed. God is with those who are with him. There are only 2 religions I hate and one of course is the extreme Muslin and I will not mention the other as it is not important. Believe me I have been following and reading each day as it is hard to go through what you have gone through, as it was hard what we went through. Good thing you had family there with you, we just had God as no family lives here with us. Good Luck and give the girls a hug from my girls....

Your notes today (Sept. 20th) were heart tugging. As an LDS sister who has worked in Church Public Affairs we know that many do not understand us, and chose to believe those who make their living by misrepresenting us. Your testimony is quite sufficient. We learned long ago that arguing and trying to convince (bashing) only increases tension and changes no one. Following Pres. Hinckley's example, the best response is dignified and minimal. Last year I had serious neurospinal surgery, and was blessed that angels would be in the operating room. It was very difficult and turned as well as could be hoped for. A couple of months later I told my non-member surgeon of the blessing and he said "I believe it." It can an does happen. All your children could not have come to better parents. The positive attitude and smiles, and the incredible smiles of Kendra & Maliyah show your family's strength. You must have tremendous support from family and friends. Our prayers are with you as we enjoy following their progress. Jetta Washington LDS Family Service Missionary

I look forward to "checking" on the girls daily. I have been so amazed at the progress that they are making. We serve a mighty God! Like you, I firmly believe in the power of prayer and am confident that He is in control of everything. Those who would criticize your beliefs and your faith just don't know the God that we serve. I am elated that the girls are home now and life can return to somewhat normal. But what is normal life with children? I will continue to pray for you and your entire family and look forward to "watching" all of your children grow up. You are a fabulous family and a great witness to what can be done when a family loves each other and much as all of you do.

Those twins might be beating up on each other any day now! My twin girls are five and over the years they've bitten, kicked, slapped, knocked heads together (on purpose), you name it. And I think it's a shame that people are judging your religious beliefs. My mother says there are many different paths all leading to the top of the same hill.

It saddens me that some people criticize your religion instead of celebrating how much it has helped you get through all of your challenges over the past four years. I would suggest that you delete those comments without even acknowledging them. You need to stay positive and it's your family and your religious beliefs that have gotten you this far. I'm Catholic and we have enough people criticizing our religion. I wouldn't dream of criticizing someone else's religion if it helps them get through this life, which can sometimes be quite a challenge. Keep up the good work.

I read about your family on our way to Flagstaff this weekend in the church news. I read it to my husband and we discussed it for a good 30 minutes. We were so intrigued, we got onto your website to read more about the it. We are a young couple as yourselves with 5 children and I couldn't imagine being in the circumstance that you deal with daily. With such braveness, it helps and inspires the rest of us to be better parents and be grateful for the things the Lord does give us to deal with. Remember all things pass and one day your children will call you blessed. For you truly are!!!

I have been watching your story since the very beginning and I don't miss an update either through the national news, newspapers and your website. What an amazing family you have. I can not believe the rapid recovery the girls are making and that you as a family are seemingly unaffected by all the work that is and will be necessary as the girls continue to need additional medical attention. You have shown true commitment to the girls, your other children and to each other and that has kept you strong. May God continue to hold your family in his hands and help the girls to be happy, healthy and successful.

To the Herrin family, we all know that the twins's survival is a MIRACLE and that God is to be praised, He gave the doctors and staff the knowledge to be able to do this wondrous thing for your precious girls and He gave these girls to parents who would love and cherish them in the way they would need to survive. Please give your children hugs and kisses from all of us and TO GOD BE THE GLORY! AMEN AND AMEN!!!!

Just out of curiosity, have they said anything funny or unexpected regarding being separated, like is it easier to move around or any comments about not being conjoined anymore? It's always neat to hear things from a kids point of view. What about Courtney? Has she said anything in those regards either? Just wondering.

I know it must seem like this has been the longest 6-8 wks of your lives, but to look back from my perspective it seems like so much less time than its actually been . I think i've only missed 1 or 2 days of checking for updates since their surgery. To think that only a few weeks ago the girls were entering into such a risky surgery and now to see them back to their old "new" selves and your family being able to get back into a routine. How amazing the Lord truly is. Will continue to pray for healing and strength and wisdom, health and happiness for your entire family. All the efforts and sleepless nights are so worth it! You have set such a wonderful example of what it is to be like Jesus for your children to see and grow in your footsteps. What better gift could a person ever hope for their children? Thank you Jesus!

I first read about the girls on a web news site. I scoured the news for any update until I happened upon your website. Thank you so much for sharing your family with us. We are so thankful that the separation went well, and pray for a complete recovery. The girls are truly an inspiration to the rest of us, i.e. always smiling after all they have been through! I can only hope that I was half the parent(s) you are! May God continue to bless and keep you!

Hi, we just found out about you guys and we were just wishing you guys the best luck in the world and so happy that you guys were ok. We just had conjoined twins on September 8th 2006 as well, two little boys which we named Noah Nathan Lopez and Josh Jacob Lopez. The good news is that they each have their own legs and arms and are conjoined from the stomach down. Another good news is that they each have their own heart. The bad news is that they share the same lungs. They are still in the hospital because the same lungs isn't enough to support the two of them. The only hope we have is to transplant lungs into each of them. Its very complicated what has to be done. You see, the both share the lungs so they dont belong to either of them alone so what will be done is that they will BOTH have a heart-lung transplant to help them out. BUT, there is only 75 percent chance that Noah will live and even worse, theres a 65 percent chance that Josh will live. Please help us pray and give us support. You are the only people we can really turn to for suppot. Please e-mail us at Brendalmunoz31@yahoo.com and tell us of your experience. Thank you Noah and Brenda

I have been checking your website every day since the twins went into surgery. When I saw the pictures of the girls going home, I was over joyed. As I write this, tears are welling up in my eyes. I never thought I would feel so close to two little girls I've never met living on the other side of the country. Thank you so much for allowing me, and the rest of the world, to be a part of this amazing journey. You are always in my prayers, I wish your family only the best. -Emily

It is just so amazing. How awesome that they can now do their own thing. Kendra doesn't have to hang out with Maliyah at the doctor if she doesn't want to and Maliyah doesn't have to go with Kendra! You are truly an amazingly blessed family. I look forward to the girls (all 5 of the kids') accomplishments. Tons of prayers, good thoughts, good wishes, hugs, kisses......

Congratulations on having your girls home! We have a 3 week old baby in the NICU at PCMC. Reading your story gives me hope that one day my baby will get to go home. The doctors and nurses have been great. He has nothing copared to what you have goen through but it is pretty hard for us his parents. He was born with scoliosis, club hands and feet and something neuromusluclar we are waiting on test back from that to see just what it is exactly. He is on a ventilator and they have tried 6 times to extubate but no luck. We are hopeful and pray everyday fro his strenght and hoep one day soon he gets to come home to us. Congratulations again and best of luck to your family.
