Father Passes Away Before His Baby is Born. His Family Paid Tribute to Him in a Photo and It’s Beautiful.

Being a parent for the first time is perhaps one of the greatest joys in life. Hector Daniel Ferrer Alvarez and his partner Kathryn Seable Williams couldn’t wait to hold their child together for the first time. Hector loved motorcycles and did everything he could to be safe while riding and wore protective gear and rode cautiously. But only a month before his baby was born, his life was taken away; however, not by a motorcycle accident but by someone he believed was a friend.

When Kathryn gave birth to her new daughter Aubrey, she knew her husband would never hold his child. She wanted to pay tribute to him in the best way possible. For her baby photo shoot, she wanted to arrange Hector’s motorcycle gloves in a way that demonstrated like he was holding his baby girl. The image of her daughter smiling immediately went viral and the touching photo has been viewed over 7 million times on Facebook!

‘His life was taken just a month before she was born by someone he considered a friend. They say that angels are talking to babies when they smile in their sleep. I guess maybe that’s true.’ A GoFundMe page has been setup for the family and we could only wish the very best to Kathryn and little baby Aubrey.

Please share this touching story of little Aubrey who will always know that her father will love her with your friends and family.
