It's been a few days, and I'm finally ready to talk about this. Mermaid Girl was a personal hero of mine. She was so brave, funny, and inspiring. Mermaid Girl was in one word: awesome.
This is seriously devastating. Anyone who has seen her TLC special knows just how amazing little Shiloh Pepin was. She was an inspiration to us all.
Shiloh has sirenomelia, which means her legs were fused together before birth and she has no genitalia or uterus.
