Brooke learned about the Ohio TTTS walk through a support group, she said, and support groups have been instrumental for Brooke in dealing with the loss of her son.

“When it happened to me, a lot of people made me think that I couldn’t talk about,” she said.

That’s something she never wants another young woman to have to deal with.

She said if a woman loses a twin or both her children, Brooke will contact them through an online support group.

“I refuse to not talk about it because I got told to focus on the one you have,” she said. “People make you think like you’re not supposed to talk about it. That’s not healthy. You should be able to talk about it with your kids.”
