Heartbreaking Video Of Father Singing to Dying Baby Son After Wife Dies Unexpectedly

Posted in: , , ,

This video of new dad, Chris Picco, singing "The Beatles" Blackbird song to his newborn dying son after his wife and the boy's mother passed away, is going viral. And it's just heartbreaking!

It absolutely kills me to hear stories from friends, and some of these ones we come across online of miscarriages, stillbirths and now this. May the mom and little angel son rest in heaven.

Chris Picco singing Blackbird to his son, Lennon James Picco, who was delivered by emergency C-section at 24 weeks when Chris' wife Ashley unexpectedly and tragically passed away in her sleep. Lennon's lack of movement and brain activity was a constant concern for the doctors and nurses at Loma Linda University Hospital, where he received the absolute best care available. During the pregnancy, Ashley would often feel Lennon moving to music so Chris asked if he could bring his guitar into the NICU and play for Lennon, which he did for several hours during the last days of Lennon's precious life. One day after filming this, Lennon went to sleep in his daddy's arms.
