Internet Users Respond to Grieving Dad’s Request, Photoshop Tubes Off Body of Late Baby

by at . Comments

Sometimes, the use of Photoshop removes arms and takes away nipples.

Other times, it restores your faith in humanity.

Such was the case for Nathen Steffel, whose daughter Sophia passed away in Cincinnati's Children's Hospital after suffering a hepatic hemangioma in her liver at just six weeks old.

Not long afterward, Steffel told his sad story on Reddit and made a request of other users:

"Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes," he wrote. "Can someone remove the tubes from this photo?"

And complete strangers took it from there.

They sent Steffel numerous edited shots of Sophia, a gesture that prompted the grieving father to issue a note of gratitude online.

"This is really amazing," he wrote. "Everyone you have made my day. All I wanted was a nice picture. What I received was a lot of love and support from a bunch of strangers. A long with a lot of great photos, drawings and paintings. Thanks everyone!"

Here is a look at some Photoshopped pictures of Sophia, tube-free and beautiful:
