Why this adorable photo of newborn twins hugging is breaking hearts

GAINESVILLE, Fl. — A photo of newborn twins hugging has captured the hearts of many people.

The photo shows Mason hugging his brother who was in the NeoNatal unit.

Hawk was born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, which is a defect in the diaphragm.

The twins were three weeks old at the time.

Unfortunately, Hawk passed away due to complications from the condition.

“Our hearts are saddened this morning as our sweet little man was called home to be with Jesus. He went very peacefully and we know he’s no longer suffering. Please give us some time to grieve and try to start the healing process,” said a post on a Facebook page dedicated to the twins.

The parents of the twins say they will treasure the photo and the time they had with Hawk.
