You have woven a masterful tribute. Your vivid writing is filled with compelling description and powerful emotion. What a gracious gift that the parents could take her beautiful twin home.
With writing such as this, I expect to see you moving up rapidly.

this story strikes "close to home" for me. Recently a young couple in our church experience a similar situation. Their faith has been a monumental testimony to their unsaved families.

At the time of their son's death, I had a similar vision of Jesus holding up the baby, showing him off to the angels....

What a story, what a couple and what an Awesome God!

I really hope this does well. It is a heart-wrenching trip to go up and down with life and death. How beautiful and different. You did really well with descriptions, I loved the line with 'marinating in numbness' VERY descriptive. ^_^
