A Conversation for Jennifer Jane Brown

Well done for writing such a sensitive entry on such a tragic circumstance.
It brought back to me of the story on TV last night of Bethany and Alyssa, the two Siamese twins joined by the head. Only one of them (Alyssa) survived. It was particularly poignant for me because my newborn daughter shares the same name. It was truly humbling to see the parents try to cope with such difficulties. It makes me reassess what heroism really is about, not wars, bravado and mayhem, but coping and adjusting under very difficult conditions such as this. That's truly heroic.

Thank you so much for your post.
I watched the documentary on the conjoined twins and I wept buckets.
I wrote this entry on Jennifer because I lived every moment with her parents, waiting for good news and was devastated to hear she lost her brave fight for life.
I had a stillbirth myself.
Writing about events like this help heal my wounds - I write from my heart and soul and give it my all.
Thank you for your kind words, they meant a great deal on a very sad day for me, we just buried our nation's Grandma.
