Twins The Crawford sisters, Jalynne and Janelle, are excellent illustrations of the remarkable closeness that exists between identical twins. Since infancy, these twin sisters have been close and have always tried to do everything together.
They even gave birth to their children on the same day…
“Being a twin is unlike anything you can express or understand until you are one yourself,” Jalynne told Love What Matters. The connection is so powerful that one can sense what the other is going through, and vice versa. We were inseparable as children. “Every day, we dressed identical, shared a car and mobile phone, had the same friends…we were attached to one other’s hip,” says one of them.
“Teachers would recommend to our parents that we be in different courses, and we would scream at the notion of being separated from one another,” the woman added. Our mother didn’t want to sever the relationship between us, and we were grateful that she kept us in the same classrooms. This lasted until the beginning of my freshman year of high school. Teachers were concerned that by always staying in the same classroom, we wouldn’t be our actual selves, but we believe it benefited our personalities, and we always received straight A’s.”
Best friends since childhood, the twins have always been close. They even developed their own language that no one else could comprehend as they got older. They imagined a future together as children, where they would live as neighbors with their different families. They also desired that their future children have close friendships and attend the same school.
When Jalynne married Brandon in 2011, she was the first to come out. One and a half years later, Anelle married. The twins were pregnant barely two weeks apart due of their desire to start a baby at the same time…
Janelle, unfortunately, was afflicted with m.i.scar.riag.e. This woman had several health difficulties that made it difficult for her to conceive, according to doctors. Janelle had an ectopic pregnancy and a history of polycystic ovarian syndrome, while Jalynne experienced two losses.
However, the disappointments drew the twin sisters closer together, and they agreed to face the crisis together.
Jalynne became pregnant again six months later.
She was first thrilled, but soon became concerned and experienced conflicting feelings. Jalynne had no idea how to tell her sister, who had recently gone through a horrific misc.arri.ag.e of her own.
Then, only four days after the wonderful news, she got a call from Janelle, who informed her that she, too, was expecting!
When they realized they were both pregnant at the same time, they couldn’t stop crying and laughing.
Janelle and Jalynne joked about having babies on the same day.
The parallels became more apparent as the pregnancy progressed.
Doctors were astounded by the usual examinations because the newborns matured at the same rate, were similar in length, and weighed within ounces of each other.
Jalynne was certain she wanted to give birth by cesarean — and it turned out that Janelle was as well.
Everything went as planned for Janelle and Jalynne: Janelle, the older sister, gave birth to her baby, Jace Alan Leopoldo, first. Jalynne arrived three hours later with her baby, Bryson Ryder Crawford.
The big childhood dream of Jalynne and Janelle came true!
