Dedicated Dad Carries His Son With Cerebral Palsy Through The Rain

Jan 29, 2016 By Archit Tripathi

One of the greatest, most important responsibilities any man can ever take on is fatherhood. Being a dad isn't easy, and there's no set way to do it. Some people choose to be stern disciplinarians who give tough love while others are big ol' softies. Some choose to go for the role of authority, while others play the part of a big, lovable goofball. It's all relative to what you're like personally (I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be a goofball dad like Phil Dunphy on Modern Family), but there's one thing that all great dads have in common: you love your kids unconditionally and do anything and everything in your power to keep them smiling. 

For some folks, fatherhood comes with an even bigger challenge, in the form of disability. Raising a child with special needs can be daunting and a lot of people are terrified of potentially having a baby with a birth defect because they're not sure they have the inner strength and dedication to overcome the extra hurdles in their way. Thankfully, there are plenty of parents who embrace the challenge head-on and find the experience extremely rewarding. 

This guy is definitely one of those dads. His son appears to suffer from cerebral palsy, a condition caused by abnormal brain development that results in severely limited motor functionality. On a rainy day, he takes him out to experience the water. Even though the boy is fairly large, the dad carries him around as if he were still a toddler. It's unclear whether or not the father is in such great shape as a result of carrying his son so much, or for some other reason. Either way, his love for his son is commendable.
