It’s Jack’s 1st Birthday, And The Video Had Me Crying Floods Of (Happy) Tears.

Jack and Greyson were twins whose entry to the world started off like a bad dream: Greyson was stillborn due to prenatal complications, and Jack weighed little over a pound. His parents said goodbye to his brother, then focused all their attention on Jack. Born at 24 weeks gestation, he was only given a 50% chance of survival.

The beginning of this video is harrowing to watch, as it's hard to believe that a baby so small could exist outside its mother's womb. However, as the footage goes on, it becomes clear that Jack is a total fighter: When you see how much he grew over his 110 days in the hospital, you're going to be shocked in the best possible way.
