An caring mom knew that her son would miss his dog terribly the year he was overseas for school, and she figured out that the next best thing to being with his dog every day was to take and send a picture of her every day he was gone.
A Filipino mom has been taking photos of her husband and daughter holding hands without their knowledge for years and plans on making a video montage of the photos for her 18th birthday or her wedding.
“My husband and daughter. They have no idea I’m taking photos of them holding hands since 2014,” she wrote.
When Philippe Morgese became a single dad, he knew he needed to be able to do his one-year-old daughter Emma’s hair. He started out small with simple hair clips. From there, he branched out to pigtails and braids. Eventually he became so adept, he would receive compliments from friends and strangers alike on how great Emma’s hair looked. It was then that Philippe realized that if he had struggled to learn how to style his daughter’s hair, surely tons of other dads would be going through the same thing and would benefit from his knowledge. That’s when he saw an opportunity to do something great for the community. He created a “Dads and Daughters” hair class to help other fathers learn about doing hair.
When a three-week- kitten was found in critical condition by animal-loving humans, they took her into their home to nurse her back to health. They weren’t sure if she would make it through the night, as she remained “lethargic and limp” despite constant care. Then, they enlisted the help of maternal husky named Lilo.

After learning about how much heavy metal music soothes and comforted his son, Richard McDeid decided to take his son with cerebral palsy to a lot of heavy metal concerts. And when I say a lot, I mean more than 1,200 shows.
Richard’s son, Mason, has loved heavy metal music since he was a toddler. When Mason was a baby, his dad said in an interview, all he did was cry — until Richard put on a Metallica music video. Then, the crying stopped.
“Afterwards, it started happening in the car whenever Metallica was on,” Richard said in an interview. “He would calm down and relax. At first it was only Metallica and then grew to other bands.”
It’s not hard to describe what it is about these photos that make them so profound, but one word that immediately came to mind was ‘sacrifice’. Judging by these photos we can only assume this is a father who devoted his own life in one of the most difficult and low paid jobs in order to send his son through college.
