Glenda Hatchett, the star of "The Verdict with Judge Hatchett," shared rarely seen family pictures of her grandsons as she celebrated her youngest grandson turning four-years-old.
"Langston, My very special grandson turned 4 today! A fun combination of birthday and the Easter Bunny."
In April 2016, Langston's mother passed away only 12 hours after his birth at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. In Langston's birthday tribute Glenda reflected on how blessed she felt, and revealed:
"Langston and his older brother, Charles, are constant reminders of God’s Miraculous Amazing Grace!"
Glenda's daughter-in-law was named Kyira Dixon Johnson; she was 39-years-old at the time of her death. According to Daily Mail, she died from massive blood loss following a C-section.
Kyira was found to have three liters of blood in her abdomen that was caused by "hemorrhagic shock due to acute hemoperitoneum."
Glenda and her son, Charles Johnson, have filed a wrongful death suit on behalf of Kyira's sons Langston and Charles, and have named them as the plaintiffs.
It is reported, they are suing the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center because they feel the hospital staff did not respond fast to the initial signs of discomfort when Kyira alerted the nurses.
Charles admitted that he was shocked about his wife's death because she appeared well and in good spirits after giving birth to Langston.
He revealed that before her death, Kyira was well enough to enjoy some skin-to-skin bonding time with her new-born son.
Recalling the day that changed his life, he said after the doctors noticed some bleeding in her catheter, she was rushed to surgery where she died shortly after.
Revealing the lessons he has learned from the experience, he explained, "it's a silent epidemic going on. There's nothing I can do to bring Kira back, but what I can do is send other mothers home with their babies."
In honor of Kyira and other mothers who have died during childbirth, Charles has formed a non-profit organization called "4Kira4Moms."
It is dedicated to raising awareness, pushing for new legislation that helps prevent families from going through the experience of birth-related deaths.
