Blanket Delivery from Ireland for Harley and James
The story of conjoined twins Harley and James and their successful separation surgery has captured the hearts and minds of people around the world. Several weeks ago, we told you the story of a group of Irish schoolgirls who made a blanket to auction off to raise funds for the twins, “SoRoZo: Nine-Year-Old Leaders of Hope“. The person who won the quilt was none other than our very own Healing Homes Director, Julie Flynn Coleman, and she planned to donate the quilt to the boys. Since their separation surgery was successful and Harley and James are now two separate boys, the schoolgirls decided to make another quilt so that they could each have their own.
