Their Bravery In School Pays Off
Kendra and Maliyah worked hard during school. Along with the usual studies, they worked hard to learn to walk and build their identities as separate people. Despite the difficulties, the twins managed to overcome all the odds. They learned to navigate around with the help of crutches and other mobility devices. They built meaningful, life-long friendships that helped them through the tough times. When Kendra and Maliyah graduated from high school, it was one of the happiest days of their parents’ lives. Their parents reflected on how they weren’t even sure if the girls would survive 24 hours after birth. Yet, they overcame that and the separation surgery and both of Maliyah’s transplants. Their graduation day was one filled with happiness and excitement for the future. But there was still another challenge the twins needed to overcome before they could enjoy their independence outside of high school.
