Preemie Twins Surviving and Holding Hands, Amazing!

on 01/21/2016 - 01:22 pm

Check out the amazing preemie video that's gone viral. The twin babies were born January 4, 2016 at only 28 weeks. They weighed under 2.2 pounds.



Mommy, Anthea Jackson-Rushford, gave this explanation for posting the video:
“I’m sharing photos and videos for the simple reason that it gives hope to all parents out there that even they do just fine! I Googled like crazy looking for hope when we told we might be Prem. I would love to see this kind of positivity as a mum that faces the possibility of a premature baby. To all parents that face this, be comforted in knowing that today anything is possible and your babies will be just fine!!!”
