Glen and Anthea Jackson-Rushford's twins were born 11 weeks early, but they have already shown remarkable strength and determination to stick together and survive.

Both my angels holding hands again as if they were born to! Amazing sight!

Kristian Ian and Kristiana Micaela were born on January 4, weighing about two pounds each. Despite their early entry into the world, Jackson-Rushford said "All [is] going swell! Just growth is all that we are waiting on now!"

What's even more miraculous is that the two can't seem to stop holding hands. In the video below, the twins are one week old getting skin-to-skin time with their father - and with each other.

"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!!!"
