In a profoundly heart-touching video, an elderly man was captured sharing a few precious moments with his great-great-grandchild. As he lay in his bed looking extremely fragile, he couldn’t stop patting the baby, who kept gazing at him in complete adoration.
There’s something heartwarming about the beautiful connection grandparents share with their grandchildren. It’s this lovely bond that a family recorded in their camera and decided to share with the world, showcasing how genuine love can bind two people for the rest of their lives.
On September 19, 2016, a YouTube channel titled “Cadance’s Magical Adventures” posted a 17-second clip that instantly went viral, amassing an overwhelming response from people who were moved by the contents of the video.
It wasn’t hard to guess from the short clip that the senior citizen wasn’t doing well health-wise. Little Cadance’s parents shared the video, and its caption was a bittersweet combination of happiness and deep sorrow. According to the description:
“First time she has met him. He woke up and wanted her to sit with him. It was so precious. We may not have him much longer and I want her to have something to remember him by.”
Little Cadance’s first meeting with her beloved great-great-grandfather was a memorable moment that her family wished to capture and save so that they would always have it as a golden memory to look back on and cherish.
Since the older man had been unable to celebrate the baby girl’s arrival due to his ailment, his family organized the meet-up to offer him a chance to bond with the little girl. They brought Cadance to meet her great-great-grandpa when he woke up after being asleep for a few days. Please watch video below:
