It's been a rough few days for Michelle Brantley and Bryan Mirabal.
The Jacksonville, Fla., parents welcomed conjoined twin brothers Carter and Conner on Dec. 12, and the little guys have already undergone multiple surgeries.

The survival rate for conjoined twins is between 5 and 25 percent, but the Mirabal's situation has an upside. Their sons do not share any organs, which often makes it difficult to separate the infants. In Carter and Conner's case, their livers and parts of their intestines are simply fused together.
But despite that good news, the boys aren't out of the woods yet. Carter currently has heart complications and both are on a breathing machine.
"Please pray got the boys continue to fight and keep their strength (sic)," the couple wrote on Facebook. "They are so strong!"
A crowdfunding campaign has been set up by the family to help pay for medical expenses and updates on the boy's conditions can be found on their Facebook page, "Prayers for Carter & Conner."
Our thoughts go out to the family during this difficult time and we look forward to watching the twins grow stronger every day!
