Heartwarming video shows sick little boy meeting his newborn sister for the first time

Since February of this year, Holt had been struggling with cancer. He was finally diagnosed with a rare form of non-Hodgkins lymphoma in September, and has since completed 3 of 6 rounds of chemo. As you may have guessed the process has been hard, but he got a lot of joy thinking about his new brother or sister that was on the way.

Halfway through Holt's 4th chemo round, his mother Melissa finally went into labor.

As he finished his treatment, little Natalie was born into the world. By chance, Holt finished chemo just as Melissa was discharged. He had been hoping for a baby sister so when big brother Holt finally got to meet her, the moment was truly touching.

The excited boy even got emotional while holding her.

“I can’t stand it,” he told his parents,”She is just so cute.”
