The parent of a baby who died a few years ago followed the lead of another father who last month asked the Photoshop experts of the Internet if they could work their magic to remove the tubes and cords from his baby’s photo.
Like that father, this parent, going by Jstefut on Reddit, wrote that they too have “no pictures of [their son] without all of the tubes.”
“If anyone can remove the tubes from this photo, I would be extremely grateful,” Jstefut wrote.
Here are a few of the images the parent received.
Later Jstefut wrote: “I want to thank you for the kind words and for all the different pictures you’ve made. I had never used reddit before this and had no expectations, but seeing the response to the first post a father made about this I wanted to give it a try. It’s so great to see a community just taking time out of there day to help someone else and show them love. I’ve tried to thank message everyone who’s made a pic so far personally, but if I’ve missed you so far just know I appreciate you and I will try to talk to you soon. Everyone, just try to surround yourself with love.”
