MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM)- The babies born to a mother who had been brain dead for the previous month are slowly improving.
Nicholas and Alexander Bolden were born on April 5 at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. Each weighed less than two pounds.
Their mother, Christine Bolden of Muskegon Heights, suffered a pair of brain aneurysms on March 6 and collapsed. Her brain was dead but she was kept alive on a respirator for as long as possible to allow the unborn babies to develop more fully.
The grandmother of the twins, Donetta Bolden, spoke with WZZM 13.
"It still hurts, I can't believe she's gone. 26-years-old and all these babies back here, but God did it for a reason., I don't know what, but it's for a reason and we just got to come together and we got plenty of help with the babies when the babies do come home."
