Jack’s over the rainbow…

Baby Jack’s last trip over the rainbow had me blubbing at my desk this week. His story is in this week’s Pick Me Up, which I am also editor of.

Jack was born with a fatal genetic condition which meant he would gradually lose the ability to smile, see, hear move or even swallow. His parents Melanie and Scott decided to make his short life as wonderful as they could and captured all the best bits on camera.

After baby Jack died in April this year, Melanie set all the photos to music – Over The Rainbow – and posted it on YouTube. So far almost 3,000 people have looked at it, including me.

What a wonderful mum Melanie is, if you watch the video you will see how hard she tried to make Jack’s short life as good as it could possibly be. I warn you, it will break your heart. God bless you, little Jack.
