Father is caught sleeping on the hospital floor in order to be with his sick son.
When York, Pennsylvania native, Amy Palmer, uploaded a picture of her husband, Andre, on Facebook, she didn’t expect much to happened. Amy thought it would get a few likes, comments, and maybe even one share.
However, her expectations were completely wrong. Amy’s photo turned out to be so incredibly heart melting that it went viral in a matter of 24 hours. Even major news organizations such as ABC are now talking about it.
Recently, Amy had to admit her baby boy to York Hospital Pediatrics for an undisclosed illness. Being a worried mother, Amy has not left her son’s side since. She has slept in a chair next to his crib for several nights now.
On 7/5/2016, as she woke up from one her naps, she caught her husband in a precious moment. He was sleeping on the floor under her son’s crib. Amy immediately snapped a photo of the moment and added a backstory that turned a priceless photo into one of the most popular stories on Facebook.

What an beautiful moment. Andre’s gesture may seem small but it speaks volumes about him as a father. His photo is truly an inspiration to us all.
