This father took the same picture with his son every year for 29 years. The last picture will touch your heart

Our childhood and the time we spend with our parents are irreplaceable and will one day come to an end. This is why having pictures of those cute moments become all the more important for later on in life. Usually, on special occasions, particularly birthdays, parents will always take pictures of their child. For one, it is an important marker of their growing up. For two, who knows when they will be able to celebrate their child so much, later on.

One Chinese father from the Guizhou Province took it a step further. He made it a point to take a picture of him and his son every year since 1987, but there’s something special about them. In every picture, they tried to keep the pose as similar as possible. More interestingly, the pair took continued the tradition for 28 years!

It is only in 2015, that the pictures stopped. There’s an amazing story behind that too, but you have to see all the pictures to know that!
