    Some comments that people have written about her are absolutely disgusting and so disrespectful!
    I wish her the best in her future, and hopefully, soon, she’ll be able to walk properly, run and play with the other girls her age.

  9. god didn’t make this miracle happen, a group of 30-40 surgeons and USD $650000 did. If god did anything, which he didn’t, then it would be creating her with her dead twin connected to her

  10. God bless you, sweetie. It’s a miracle you are alive, and should be thankful for it.
