“I just lost my mom,” MacLeod said. “I can’t lose my brother too.”
Doctors were able to perform an emergency cesarean section and save the baby for a few days, but the family announced Joseph died Friday.
"It's sad to inform everyone that our son, grandson, and baby brother is now flying high in the sky," a post on the family's GoFundMe page reads. "He is now with his Mom in which he was and is greatly loved. I love you baby brother more than anything. You are an blessing to not only us but to the whole world. God bless everyone and thank you to everyone who has helped. From my family to yours love all and god bless."
The family is still trying to get back on its feet following a fire that gutted its home in December. Most are currently staying at a motel in the Tacoma, Washington, area.
