A Father's Love

This photo shows a devoted father with his medically fragile son. They have a beautiful and very strong relationship. It is becoming increasingly difficult for the father to hold his son for long periods of time because of the combined weight of his son and his oxygen tank. Here they are enjoying a special moment of just being together.
