molly and emily's story

Sisters Molly and Emily bring so much joy and love to their mum and dad's lives, but since they were born, life is not how their parents James and Sarah ever expected it to be.  Both girls were born healthy babies two years apart but as time went on, their parents noticed their daughters weren't developing as they should be.
