I don't have a child, but I can't imagine what it must be like to lose one. This story proves there are truly good and decent people out there that are willing to comfort a complete stranger.

Picture a parent, a father in this case, praying for a miracle for his infant daughter who had never left the hospital. Sophia had to fight a battle from birth. Tragically, the newborn passed away.

Sadly, her father never got to see his beautiful baby girl without the tubes that were keeping her alive. He didn't want to remember Sophia like that, so he reached out to community of complete strangers with a request.

The father posted this on the website reddit.com:

Photoshop Request: My daughter recently passed away after a long battle in the children's hospital. Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes. Can someone remove the tubes from this photo?

The response was overwhelming and quick. Talented artists got to work to help this father mourn. At the same time they renewed my faith in kind, decent people.
