Doctors prophesy: ​​The 33-year-old doesn’t have to live long. A quick decision is made: Parke absolutely has to get to know his son!

Opposite “Good Morning America” ​​the widow recalls the moment: “A nurse placed his newborn son on his chest. And from the point in time when ‘Baby JB’ was placed on my husband’s chest, we had about 35 to 40 minutes together. ” What a life together should be minimizes to less than an hour. The 33-year-old dies on the same day and, in addition to his wife Haley and “Baby JB”, also leaves behind another 18-month-old son named Brinton.
