Identical twins share a unique kinship that others may never be able to fully comprehend.
Twins Two excellent instances of it are Jalynne and Janelle Crawford. Since the day they were born, they have never been apart and have made an effort to do everything together. Even infants were born on the same day for them.
“Except for being a twin yourself, being a twin is unlike anything you can express or understand. One can sense what the other feels and vice versa since the relationship is so deep. We were inseparable as children. We were attached to one other’s hip, according to Jalynne, who spoke to Love What Matters. We had the same friends, shared a car and mobile phone, and always dressed alike.
Teachers would advise our parents to put us in different schools, and we would scream at the notion of being apart from one another, she added. We were very grateful that our mother kept us in the same classrooms since she did not have the heart to sever the tie between us. That persisted up until high school freshman year. Teachers were concerned that we wouldn’t be ourselves if we were in the same class every day, but we believe it benefited our personalities and we consistently received straight As.
The two women have always been the closest of friends. They even developed a unique language as children that no one else could comprehend. When they were young, they imagined living next to each other and having kids of their own. They desired for their future children to go to the same school and make lifelong friends.
When Jalynne married her Brandon in 2011, she was the first out person. Janelle wed one and a half years later. They were pregnant within two weeks of one another because they wanted to start a family at the same time.
Sadly, Janelle experienced a miscarriage. She was diagnosed with several medical conditions that made it difficult for her to become pregnant. Jalynne had suffered two losses, while Janelle had an ectopic pregnancy and a history of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
But the difficulties strengthened their bond, and Jalynne and Janelle chose to deal with the dire circumstances as a team.
Jalynne became pregnant once more six months later.
She was first ecstatic but soon became anxious and struggled with her emotions. She didn’t know how to tell her sister, who had recently gone through a horrific miscarriage of her own, the news.
Four days after hearing the good news, she then got a call from Janelle.
She revealed to her sister that she was also expecting!
When Jalynne and Janelle discovered they were both expecting at the same time once more, they couldn’t stop laughing and crying.
Given that they both became pregnant around the same time, they joked that they may give birth on the same day.
The parallels grew more obvious as the pregnancy progressed.
The babies developed at the same rate and were similar, which astounded the doctors during routine examinations. Each infant had the same length and a weight that was within a few ounces of the others.
Jalynne was certain that she wanted to deliver through cesarean section, and it turned out that Janelle would be as well.
Jace Alan Leopoldo was born to Janelle, the older of the two sisters, first, exactly as they had imagined. Jalynne followed with her baby Bryson Ryder Crawford just three hours later.
Janelle and Jalynne’s great childhood fantasy was realized!
Of course, for these two mothers, welcoming these amazing sons into their life was a great occasion. We wish them well after all of the challenging obstacles they had to overcome.
