Jackson-Rushford of Victoria, Australia, also posted on Facebook that she and the twins — Kristian and Kristiana — are doing well after a tough delivery at just 29 weeks.

“We [realize] it may be a tad bit disturbing seeing our twins with tubes but they are premie babies so it is understandable and normal,” Jackson-Rushford wrote. “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 [premature]. 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!!!”

“They are proving to be medical marvels for their age and progress,” she added. “All going swell!!! Just growth is all that we are waiting on now!!”

As you can clearly see, they can't stop holding hands!! 󾌧󾌧󾌧
