Happy Valentines Day to My Twin, Monkey

Monday, February 14, 2011

Valentine's Day is the day we remember the ones we love. I am one of the lucky people in the world because I am a twin. I love my family but my twin, well, my twin is extra special. My twin is my hero. She was a marathon runner, a soft ball pitcher and could throw a foot ball further and with more spiral than any boy I've known. She is smarter than me by miles, has musical talent and has a prestigious job. My twin also has Lupus, and broke her back twice.
She can't run anymore. My twin just had major back surgery so that she can continue to have the ability to walk. Right now she is 3000 miles away from me in an ICU unit. She has a blood clot in her lung. The last few days I have thought of nothing else but my twin. The horror that I might lose her. It has also made me think about how lucky we are, those of us that are not sick and can move. You don't know what you have until you lose it. So for those of you that can, MOVE! You are so blessed that you can. Anyway, this is for you Monkey, Happy Valentine's Day. I love you so much!

    My name is Coral Baker and I'm a casting producer from CryBaby Media (, a New York City based company that develops projects for various television networks and production companies.

    We are currently casting for a major cable network and are seeking female twins that lead completely different lives! Whether it be occupations, family life, looks, or lifestyle differences, we are looking for twins who are completely opposite. This series aims to explore both the good and complicated experiences of twins who are alike in nature but are completely different on every other level!

    We are doing outreach to individuals throughout the country and I came across your spark people blog and you had made a comment on one of the blogs that you were a twin.

    If you are interested, please contact me at Thank you!

    I hope your sister recovers quickly. I completely agree with you, sometimes we take things for granted. Bentley sends his Valentine's Day love to you and your sister. emoticon
