There’s nothing quite like the pain of your child dying before you, especially if she has passed before ever living out her life in this world.
This is Sophia Steffel, who died just 6 weeks after her birth because of a liver tumor. Her father, Nathan Steffel, sent out a request to Reddit users if they could create a portrait of his daughter without all the tubes attached to frail and small body. And the results were outstanding.
