Bessie suffers from a very rare syndrome. Her condition refers to as a variant of Landau Kleffner syndrome. She hasn't spoken for 13 years and when she finally broke the silence, everyone was stunned.


Best sisters with unbreakable bond.

Bessie and Ernestine can't live without each other even for a single day. These two sisters share a very special and beautiful bond and are never seen apart though they never even had a proper conversation in their life. But still there bond is unbreakable and very strong.

“If you see me, you’re going to see her too. I can’t be away from her no longer than she can be away from me,” Ernestine said.


Bessie is a very special child.

Bessie is not a normal child. She hasn't spoken once in her thirteen years of life. That is why she and her sister's bond is very unique. Her family at first used to think that Bessie's speaking ability is developing slowly but four years ago, she finally got a diagnosis after a life-threatening seizure.


She suffers from a rare kind of syndrome.

Her doctor named Dr. Daniel Arndt, from Beaumont Hospital, told that her condition can be referred to as a variant of Landau Kleffner syndrome.


But recently a miracle happened in Bessie's life.

“The child has an excessive amount of abnormal brainwave activity while she is sleeping,” Dr. Arndt said.

These seizures caused her to have difficulty in language progression. Her family was told that she would never be able to speak and when she finally broke the silence her family couldn't believe. It's a life changing miracle for her family.

She started singing only those songs that her sister wrote and sung.

Ernestine is so close with her baby sister that she can even understand what she wants to say though she can't speak. She is always around her sister and can't stay away from her even for a single minute. Same goes for Bessie, she isn't attached with anyone else as much as she is attached with her sister.

Something really amazing and extremely unexpected happened last year. Bessie started singing thus surprising everyone.

“The first time, not only was it shocking,” Ernestine said, “[it was] amazing. I couldn’t believe it."


Bessie and Ernestine's love can't be expressed in words.

Bessie's family uploaded her video on social media which soon went viral. Bessie would not sing just any song. Instead she would only sing those songs that are written and sung by her elder sister Ernestine. Her mother says that Bessie loves those songs and that she sings what she loves. She says that she believes it's sister love.

This miracle has changed her family's life. Bessie's improvement is a sign that true love can really conquer world's.
