Usually I steer clear of all “heart warming” stories I hear of or get via e-mail, but this one got to me.
When I saw this photo and the related story on http://www.snopes.com I was immediately touched, an occurrence that is pretty rare for a cynic like me. This might not be surprising as I am a recent father. There’s something really special about holding my daughter when she is content to sleep in my arms, with total trust.
A child will always need a mother; sometimes, however, only a Father can stop the tears and provide strong but gentle arms that provide comfort and protection from all that the world throws at them.
