Hundreds Of Strangers Help A Grieving Father After His Baby Daughter Passed Away

When Nathan Steffel’s beautiful daughter Sophia passed away at six-weeks-old due to medical complications, no one could have predicted how hundreds of people from around the world would have eased his and his wife’s grieving.

As baby Sophia had spent the entirety of her short life in hospital before succumbing to hepatic hemangioma in her liver before a transplant could occur, her parents had no photos of her without medical tubes. So Nathan decided to ask for help on Reddit. He requested that somebody, just one person, photoshop the medical equipment out of this photo of his daughter:

      The response was overwhelming. Hundreds of people responded with different styles of photographs, sketches, and paintings of Sophia:

            Steffel told Buzzfeed, “I just wanted to reach out to get at least one quality picture. I was amazed how many people responded. We have so many nice pictures now. We are going to hang up a few of our favourite photos and drawings. Also some of the artists were nice enough to mail us the pictures they made.

            “At first there was so many responses I couldn’t even keep up reading them. I stayed up until 3am that night trying to respond to everyone who had seemed to have a similar experience. It helped knowing that others cared enough to stop whatever they were doing in their own lives to either send me a picture or just their condolences.

            “It’s just awesome that this story and her pictures have touched so many people.”
