SOLOMON's Graduation Day

I wrote all about SOLOMON's big day on our other site, but I wanted to share some of our photos here.  I didn't have the opportunity to take many pics that day, because both ceremonies were inside the prison, and we weren't allowed to take our cameras inside.  They did have a few photographers there, and we should be getting copies of the photos fairly soon.  I will post some when I get them.  Anyway, it was an absolutely FANTASTIC day full of excitement and wonderful people.  We will begin our transfer training very soon with SOLOMON, and we should have him with us full time right before Christmas.  The excitement in our house is building!!!

Taylor and her friend Madison at the
reception.  They had a great day

This is Jade and her new love, Nikki!
Nikki's owner, Sharon, thought she
might have to take Jade home with
her too!  Jade absolutely loves this

Jade took about 30 minutes to say goodbye!
She couldn't bear to let her go.

This was the only picture I got of all three
girls with SOLOMON that day.  We were
just getting ready to go, and we had to say
goodbye to him.

"Conjoined Twins: After Separation" on TLC tonight!

I just want to remind everyone to watch TLC tonight at 9 pm ET. The show we are on, called "Conjoined Twins: After Separation" is going to air. We had the opportunity to watch it this afternoon, and it is outstanding! You will get to see Erin and SOLOMON together. I will post more about this tomorrow, and we would love to hear what you think of the program. Our internet and phone are down right now, so I am posting this through my phone, and it's way more effort than I have time for now. We just got back from our trip to WV for SOLOMON's graduation, and we're still trying to unpack and get the girls ready for bed. The weekend was fabulous, and we were thrilled to spend time with the amazing friends we have met on this journey, and Erin was ecstatic to see her dog. We won't have him with us full time until right before Christmas, but we are one step closer. If anyone is interested in learning more about paws4people, the organization giving Erin her service dog, you can visit their website at
More tomorrow. Have a great night! Enjoy the show! ;0)

Watch TLC on Sunday night!!

This is the show we have been working on with Figure 8 Films.  There are two other sets of formerly conjoined twins who will share the hour with us.  We can't wait to see it, because we know it is going to be fantastic!  Please watch it (or TiVo it, DVR it, or record it with whatever means you have)!  :0)  Oh, BTW, these were the post cards they sent to us so we could send them out.  Obviously I couldn't send them to everyone (we don't have your addresses), but we wanted to share it with you.  O.k., so here is the key information:  November 15th (Sunday night), TLC (The Learning Channel), 9 p.m. (Eastern time), "Conjoined Twins After Separation".

Thank you to everyone who has always been so extremely supportive through the years.  We could not have made it this far without you!  We love you all!!!

Kennedy Krieger Institute in October

Here are the photos from our trip to Baltimore in October (finally).  I mean, that's not too bad... it's only November!  The pics definitely don't do our trip justice, especially when Erin started initiating some steps.  You'll just have to watch the videos to see that!  :0)  It was an amazing week of physical therapy, and we couldn't be happier with how hard both Erin and Taylor worked.  Absolute heroes, both of them!  And Jade did a great job helping out and being a good distraction.  We're so proud of them all!
