A Facebook post and a photo of an elderly man volunteering at an Atlanta Hospital is going viral for all the right reasons. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta shared a photo of “ICU Grandpa” holding an infant at the hospital, something David Deutchman has been doing there for 12 years.
ICU Grandpa comes to hold infants in the PICU and NICU when their parents can’t be there. It’s an incredibly important job because these tiny babies need attention and affection, but sometimes their parents need to be at home with their siblings, so he fills in.
The photo has been shared over 62,000 times and has more than 230,000 likes so far. Because who doesn’t like to see an image of a grandpa doing what grandpas do best?
