Brittani and Ian McIntire of Hutchinson, Kansas, recently got devastating news: one of the twins that Brittani is carrying is not likely to survive. Little Mason has a hole in his heart and an abnormal brain. His twin sister Madilyn is healthy.
But then last Tuesday the McIntires saw something amazing: in a sonogram, Madilyn appears to be holding hands with brother Mason.
“He’s only weighing nine ounces and his sister is over two pounds,” Brittani told KWCH-12 in Wichita. “His only chance of survival would be heart surgery but they wouldn’t do heart surgery because of his brain” . . .
“We didn’t really see much, [the doctor] said there’s his hand and there’s her hand, and it looks like they’re holding hands. Most twins, when she’s trying to take pictures, they’re kicking each other and hitting each other, and she said with our twins it just seemed like she was very protective over him.” (Read more from “Sonogram Shows Unborn Baby Girl Holding Hand of Dying Twin Brother” HERE)
