Heartwarming Illustrations Showing The Love Between Dads & Their Little Girls
Few things compare to the support of a loving family.
Unfortunately, we live in a time when divorce and separation have never been more prevalent, with approximately 40-50% of marriages in the United States ending in divorce. (source) Being a child to separated parents myself, I understand the hardship that accompanies such familial divisions. Even though at my current age I am happy that parents had the courage to part ways, it certainly took a toll on me when it was happening, particularly during my teenage years, and it continues to impact who I am both in and out of my own relationships. However, one thing that I am extremely grateful for is the fact that I have been able to maintain a strong relationship with each of my parents — something that I feel these Instagram images by soosh perfectly reflect in a world where separation seems to be so prevalent.
These illustrations showcase some powerfully heartwarming moments between a loving father and his daughter. Even though I’m yet to be a father and certainly never will be a daughter, these images still speak to me of the importance of building strong relationships with our children, regardless of whether or not we have a partner until death do us part. Here are some of the images featured, but be sure to check out the rest of soosh’s work through her Instagram.
