This Dad's Heartbreaking Post About His Handprint Tattoo Is Going Viral


In Australia, Father's Day is celebrated during the first week of September. To commemorate it, 27-year-old Brad Kearns shared a photograph to his parenting Facebook page, DadMum, that quickly went viral.

The photograph shows his tattoos of his first son's handprints on his chest, who was sadly stillborn.

He told Metro.co.uk:
