National Twins Organization

I've mentioned it many times in the past, but my twins club has been incredibly supportive of my family throughout this whole situation.

Well, I recently got the March/April edition of the National Twins Organization and they put in an "In Memory Of" for Corinne:

"Corinne McCarthy struggled with life for a few short hours following her birth and that of her twin, Kaitlyn on October 4, 2005. Corinne's mother was on bed rest during much of her pregnancy. She has created a website ( sharing her story of the amnio that went wrong, and a chronicle of events leading up to Corinne's death. Corinne is survived by parents, Brian and Liz McCarthy, members of Marin Parents of Multiples and twin sister Kaitlyn. Club members provided the family with prepared gourmet meals."

I've actually heard from twin mom's throughout the country who read Corinne's notice.

I saw your tribute in the magazine as well. Let me know if you would like another copy.

Liz -

I saw the tribute there as well - made it seem like a "small world" that I would already know you from the blogosphere.

I thought it was a sweet tribute - I know our twin club has had a few moms recently who also have surviving twins. They don't participate in the meetings - but our hearts are still with them.
