Sweet Photo of a Dad’s Love

Sweet Photo of a Dad’s Love December 3, 2012

A news anchor of Oakland, California’s Frank Somerville recently gave viewers a glimpse of his normal life, off the television set.  This photo of him taking the braids out of his daughter’s hair got an overwhelming response.

So for those of you who think tv can be glamorous, this is how i spent my morning, learning how to take out my daughter’s braids. It takes a long time and a lot of patience!

CNN did a segment on outpouring of support and appreciation that commenters on Frank’s Facebook page showered on him.

In response he wrote:

“It’s not often that I am speechless, but I am floored by the response to the picture I posted, and by how touching and personal many of them were. To me the picture shows a dad doing what a dad SHOULD do, and loving every minute of it. The birth of my first daughter, and adopting my youngest daughter, are the two best moments of my life, and I feel like the luckiest dad in the world that my family is interracial. I can’t thank all of you enough. And remember CHANGE HAPPENS ONE PERSON AT A TIME!”

I just wanted to share this sweet story of parents’ love for their children. What a touching celebration of life!
