The This is a picture of a hard working man dedicated to his family!! After working all night third shift, he’s right here with his son who is in the hospital. He’s so tired but he’s here!! Father of the year award goes to Andre Palmer!!! I love you more than words baby
I am so overwhelmed with so much emotion right now. I just want to take a minute to thank everyone who reached out to us whether by sharing the story, commenting, or sending messages. I appreciate all of the prayers and thoughts. I took the picture because I thought what a selfless thing for my husband to do. He could have went home after work, he could have asked me to get up. I would have never imagined that it would have touched so many people. A little background for all …the questions I’ve been seeing…. The room our son was in was so small there was literally enough room for the crib and a chair that turned into a bed. It was early in the morning and Andre Palmer just got done working third shift and dropping our daughter off at daycare. He was literally exhausted himself! The hospital was amazing the whole time we were there. They did not know what he did, for if they did I know they would have offered him something! I didn’t leave him there, I quickly got him up into the bed/chair I was sleeping in, but not before taking the picture that I felt spoke volumes about the good person, husband, and father he truly is. Our son is doing much better and is now at home resting. Thanks again for all of the support, we truly are so appreciative!!!! ????
