These twins have kept the world in suspense for weeks: Kyrie and Brielle Jackson. What happened with them verges on a miracle.
The tiny twins came onto this world a whole 12 weeks too early. Weighing barely 2 pounds (1 kg), they were clearly underdeveloped and their life prospects were dismal and bleak.
The 2 little, weak sisters were separated into different incubators. Brielle’s condition stabilized itself slowly and she gradually began to put on weight. The doctor’s prognosis for Kyrie was less optimistic, however, and the doctors believed the little one would not survive.
After a few weeks, something completely unexpected happened: the stronger Brielle suffered a life-threatening screaming fit, lasting until she could barely breathe anymore and her body began to turn blue. The responsible nurses tried to do everything in their power to help her, but nothing helped. No one knew why the little one cried so heart-wrenchingly.
In her desperation, the nurse Gayle Kasparian had a daring idea: she put the incessantly crying Brielle simply next to her fragile sister. This was against hospital policies, but Gayle risked it along with risking her job. And then something unbelievable happened: the still crimson colored and convulsing Brielle calmed down immediately and instinctively laid her arm around her still-struggling-with-death sister.
And then a miracle happened: after some time, the little Kyrie’s condition began to stabilize. She gained weight daily and even caught up to her bigger sister.
In the meantime, Kyrie and Brielle Jackson have grown into young women of 20 years old and are about to graduate from college. Naturally they spend tons of time together still. And do things that normal twins do…
Sometimes human warmth the most effective medicine. It’s amazing when 2 people are so deeply bonded like twin sisters. Share this wonderful story of Kyrie and Brielle!
