A week or two ago Jacare posted on facebook asking for prayers because Macelo and his wife had their twins at 24 weeks. I know this is early even for twins. I'm hoping everything is ok. I know it's a personal matter but does anyone have any info?

Olivia and Joey Tognini Garcia were born on October 9, 2013. Olivia at 1 lbs 4 ounces and Joey at 1 lbs 9 ounces.
The twins are fighting hard and Tatiana has posted on Facebook to keep all of them in our thoughts and prayers.

As a single dad (split custody) of 3 kids, I have complained numerous times to Marcelo and his wife about my kids driving me crazy.
Now, I feel like such an asshole, and it really puts parenting and life in perspective.

Best of luck to them. Good thing they made it to week 24 which I guess is considered first week when there is lot more hope.
My first kid came couple months early and felt so small even though 3lbs. Modern medicine is great though as some on the ER were lot smaller and still could survive.

My wife and I did fertility treatment in order to have our first child, and she's now pregnant with our second. Through that my wife met and became friends with a lot of other woman going through the same thing. Several ended up pregnant with multiples and I know a few who didn't make it to birth, and some that didn't make it much past birth. But I do know multiple multiples that were born at 24 weeks that were all in that weight range that are all now doing great.
My son was small and had to spend a few days in the NICU when he was born. I remember going to there to see him and he looked so giant compared to the other babies in there. The nurses joked that his dirty diapers weighed more than some of the other babies. Anyway these doctors and nurses work miracles and I'm sure their twins are in great hands. I'm glad they are doing ok and they will be in my thoughts.
