Learning To Walk Independently
Learning to walk independently presented a massive challenge for the twins. They’d already learned how to maneuver around as conjoined twins, and now they had to relearn how to move their bodies separately from each other. They began using wheelchairs to get around, but their parents were determined to help them learn to walk. Kendra and Maliyah underwent physical therapy where they learned to walk using crutches and walkers. It was a challenging time, but the parents frequently commented on their girls’ amazing resilience. Somehow, despite facing more difficulties in their short years than most adults experience in a lifetime, they never lost hope. They never stopped fighting to improve their situation, and the girls were an immense support to each other as the navigated the world as separate individuals.
