The viral photo of the week comes from Pennsylvania native Amy Palmer. She probably didn’t think much of it when she posted the photo but she and her husband quickly became viral internet sensations. Within hours, the photo was shared and liked by thousands of people.
Every news organization picked up on it. FOX, CBS, ABC and CNN picked up on the story within 48 hours and it was just a matter of time before it became a top trending topic on social media sites.
Amy’s son was recently admitted to the New York Pediatric hospital for an undisclosed illness and she has been by her son’s side. Needless to say, she has not gotten much sleep but one night as she woke up from a short nap, she saw her husband sleeping under her son’s crib. Amy took a photo of this precious moment and the rest is history.
Amy said the following on Facebook: “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.”
We agree. Give Andre the Father of the Year award because he deserves it!
