The twins are having surgery in Singapore
Here is a copy of the letter published on the Raffles Hospital website:
Thank you for all your good wishes and kind thoughts.
We are touched by all the cards and email pouring in every day from people all over the world.
Your kind gestures have brought much comfort to us as we anxiously wait for surgery next week.
We have been praying every day for our operation. We are excited about it as we've waited 28 years for it!
Please pray for us, for Operation Hope to be successful.
Both of us have started on this journey together and we hope that the operation will finally bring us to the end of this difficult path and may we begin our new and wonderful lives as two separate persons.
May God bless you all,
Laleh and Ladan Bijani
