For almost twenty-five years, Jeff and Pat Robbins lived with the knowledge that their identical twin daughters, Charlotte and Vanessa, diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age nine months, would die young. In spite of this overwhelming terminal illness, they raised their girls to be joyful, hopeful, full of life and most important, abundant in love. Choosing to live and work on a thoroughbred horse farm, living an idyllic, simple life focused on time spent together as a family, Charlotte and Vanessa grew up trusting in life. Secure in who they were and the bond they shared as twins allowed them to venture into life fearlessly to follow their dreams of acting, painting and writing five children’s books together. For college, they moved three thousand miles away from home, where they found happiness and the love of two incredible young men. This is the story of their remarkable journey. Written by Pat, the girls’ voices are threaded throughout each chapter, using their own words taken from a documentary, a news program and their journals allowing them to tell their unique story of living and loving.
