Katrina, Rachael & Lorelai's Story:Katrina is currently a 6th grade student at Morgan Middle School with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. As a result of her significant prematurity Katrina has multiple physical and mental challenges. She was weighed 1 pound 8 ounces when she was born. She was given less than a 5% chance of survival so we know she is a fighter!
Katrina has a good sense of humor most of the time and enjoys being teased and teasing others as well being with peers and other adults. She loves to use any type of electronic devices and to wear a life jacket and swim at the city pool whenever possible. Katrina continues to have health complications and recently has been in the hospital three times for medical assistance.
Rachel and Lorelai are conjoined twins with very different personalities. They often play together and like most sisters, have their fair share of arguments. Due to the complications of being conjoined twins, they spent most of the first 2 and a half years of their life in the hospital. After numerous health battles, they are currently thriving with good health which will hopefully continue. The uniqueness of being conjoined twins continues to pose many challenges with mobility, clothing adaptations, personal care, and social interactions. They continue to be closely monitored by their physicians.
