they are angels.

The last few days have been very hard for my family. Especially my sister and her husband.

My sister went into premature labor at 20 weeks.

Her twin babies, Michael & Alena, were born October 12th at 12:53 and 12:57pm.

Baby boy Michael passed during birth and his sister Alena died around 1:14pm.

Rest in peace angels. You are very loved. 

 Please pray for my sister, her husband and their beautiful babies.

Oh Mandy, I am SO sorry to read this. My heart is breaking for your family. As their aunt, I know how you feel...my sister lost my triplet nephews in May 2008, at a little over 23 weeks. Although you didn't know them this side of Heaven, they will always hold a very special place in your heart. Not a day goes by that I don't think about my nephews, Mateo, Ian and Anthony (I actually named my daughter after them, using the first letter of each of their names). May God comfort your family, especially your sister and brother-in-law, during this very difficult time.

Love and prayers to all of you...

I don't know her but feel SO sad for her. I lost twins almost 2 years ago. And 7 weeks ago, also went into preterm labor and my little boy died at birth. I have never really understood what it meant to have a broken heart until that day. She will be in my prayers.

One can only imagine the heart ache and wanting that attends one when this situation occurs, unless one has personally experienced this. Ava and I experienced this! I learned a very important thing from the experience. Have Philip tell you of Jessica. Our sincerest heart felt prays go out to you, your mom and Alissa and hubby. We know what they are feeling. Our experience of this kind is one of the greatest bonding occurrences in our lives.
