Everyone is doing great! Erin and the girls are going to be doing more media in the next 2 days than we think we've done since the separation. For those in Utah, they will appear on KUTV 2News today at 5:00pm, 10:00pm, tomorrow around 6:45am, and again at noon tomorrow. Then on the radio on 98.7FM at 7:40am, 93.3FM at 7:55am, and 107.5FM at 8:15am. Then on TV tomorrow on 4Utah and KSL5 at 5:00pm and 10:00pm. We'll try and post links for those not in Utah. We are having a reception to celebrate the book release tomorrow the 28th. You can see the invitation below for details, sorry for the late notice.
You and a friend are cordially invited to a very rare and special reception to meet the world famous Herrin Twins, hosted by #1 bestselling author Richard Paul Evans.
Come celebrate with the Herrins the release of their new book, WHEN HEARTS CONJOIN--the miraculous true story of the Herrin twins.
(The Herrin twins have been seen on Oprah, Good Morning America, Today Show, NBC News, Access Hollywood, 20/20, People Magazine, Glenn Beck and many other major media outlets worldwide.)
Who are the Herrin Twins?
On August 7th and 8th, 2006, the whole world watched as a team of doctors performed a miracle at Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. For the first time, four-year-old twins Maliyah and Kendra Herrin were having surgery in separate surgical suites. Born conjoined from mid-torso down, these two angels captured the hearts of millions of people around the world!
When Hearts Conjoin is the heart-warming (and heart-rending) story of Erin Herrin, her husband Jake, and Maliyah and Kendra. It is also a story of faith, hope and the power of a mother’s love.
Excerpt from the book:
At 5:45 a.m. we started getting ready for the big day. We awoke Kendra and Maliyah, wanting to hold them for the last time as conjoined twins.
“Is it Cut-Apart Day?” Kendra asked.
“Today is the day,” I said, hoping she wasn’t worried, like I was.
I’m not sure worried was a strong enough word to describe how I felt.
Terrified might be better. My nerves were raw, my emotions ready to erupt. I tried to stay positive so the girls wouldn’t see how upset I was and
become frightened themselves. If anything went wrong today - if I lost one or both of my precious daughters, I’d never be able to live with myself.
This is an extremely rare opportunity to meet these remarkable little girls, one you will likely never have again. Books are just $12.95 and not available at bookstores. Also available is a Special Editions signed by the girls. Author royalties from this book go to the girls’ special medical trust fund. Come support a fellow author. This beautiful book will make a great gift for your friends, family and loved ones.
