This was a well-done piece, non-exploitative and personal.

The title is more apt than perhaps intended: there is no avoidance of the fact that one day, one of the girls may experience health issues which will also affect the other one. If one dies, the other cannot survive.

The same happened to the most-famous "Siamese Twins." The conflicting career ambitions make me want to cry.

One wants to be a dentist, the other a pilot. Frankly, neither can do either without the ultimate commitment from the other.

Kudos to their parents for making their world safe from intrusion... if only there was a way to give them full freedom in their future. But alas: in days gone by they might not have survived childbirth, and to be alive is a great gift. That they may be limited in what they do when they grow up is not the end of the world.
