In a truly remarkable but heartbreaking story, a pregnant woman in the U.S. will forever have a devastatingly beautiful image showing one of her unborn twins holding the dying hand of her brother in the womb.
The breathtaking and touching image will surely comfort devastated parents to be Brittani and Ian McIntire in there difficult times ahead, after they were tragically told by doctors that one of their unborn twins will not survive the duration of Brittani’s pregnancy due to the fact that he has a hole in his heart and an abnormal brain.
The remarkable and tear jerking image was captured by sonogram recently when the heartbroken parents visited their doctor for a routine check up. A emotional Brittani told local reporters: “We didn’t really see much, she said there’s his hand and there’s her hand and it looks like they’re holding hands.”
The incredible image shows the unborn little boy already named Mason, on the left, with his tiny hand wrapped around the growing finger of his sister named Madilyn.
A brave Brittani further explained: “Most twins when she’s trying to take pictures and stuff, they’re kicking each other and hitting each other, and she said with our twins, it seems like she was very protective over him.”
Meanwhile an equally emotional and brave Ian said: “We know we have a piece of them together that will last forever and it’s special to have.”
Whilst Brittani added, “It’s just nice with everything going on I know I’m holding him, I’m carrying him but I just want to be there for him and not knowing and she’s the only one who can actually be there and holding onto him through it, and so it’s comforting to know that if he does pass, he won’t be alone.”
