The Beautiful Way Complete Strangers Are Helping a Grieving Father
Sometimes, even in life’s saddest moments, there is beauty to be found.
Such was the case for Nathen Steffel — a father who posted a picture of his late infant daughter, Sophia, to Reddit earlier this week, asking if anyone could photoshop out the tubes around her mouth and hands.
“Since she was in the hospital her whole life, we were never able to get a photo without all her tubes,” Steffel wrote on Reddit. To his surprise, a ton of Reddit users — complete strangers — responded (and are continuing to respond).
“I didn’t really want all the publicity, I just wanted a picture,” Steffel wrote in an email to Today. “What I received was a whole lot of love and support from complete strangers.“
