Their Smiles Say It All! Boy With Cerebral Palsy Hugs His Twin For The 1st Time.

Some people say that there’s no other bond that compares to the one between twin siblings.

Twins Lex and Lochlan are here to prove that the statement above is true.

In a heartfelt video posted on Instagram, their mom mentions that they were born four years ago with extreme prematurity. This resulted in a long recovery process for both of them, especially for Lochlan. According to their mom, Lochlan developed cerebral palsy, which affects his muscles and, therefore, his ability to move his body.

But Lochlan is a true fighter and he didn’t let his disability stop him from hugging his brother.

Their mom caught on camera the beautiful moment when Lochlan walks his first steps toward his brother’s arms. The twins’ excitement when they get to hug each other for the first time is too cute to handle!

And as if this moment couldn’t get any cuter, Lochlan’s contagious smile after falling on the floor shows that this hug meant the world to him – and judging by Lex’s face and support, it also meant the world to him!

Watch Lochlan’s and Lex’s beautiful first hug below and don’t forget to share.
