I think one of the hardest elements of losing one of my twins to Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) is the fact that I feel so cheated for my survivor. For me, as the mother, I deal with somewhat of an identity crisis. I am a mommy of twins with no twins. I worry that she will also have an identity crisis.
So I’m prepared to share with her all that I can about her twin sister, and let her embrace her identity as a twinless twin. I found this book, Always My Twin and I absolutely adore it. (Disclosure I am an amazon affiliate.)
It is a wonderful book that really delves into the emotions of losing one of your twins. I will read this to my daughter and she grows older, and we will share in Kathryn’s legacy of love and hope.
If you have lost one of your twins to TTTS, we have a facebook group called Twins with Guardian Angels. Feel free to join us there.
I have also written a book for grieving parents. Sunshine After the Storm: A Survival Guide for the Grieving Mother. The book includes four different accounts from TTTS moms.
