Diply 5 Dec 2017

When someone mentions the r/aww subreddit, my mind always goes to cute animals, but one post is reminding everyone that you don't need to be an adorable doggo to give the entire internet a case of the d'awws.

The post includes a pair of images and a simple caption:

"My brother is a low-functioning downsie. He used to love to hold babies but it's rare someone lets him now. My wife and I let him hold our baby today and here is his look when we gave her to him and then the way he held her without movement for 5 minutes. I almost cried. :)"

The images sparked a ton of comments, many urging the poster to keep on loving his brother.

Many also felt the need to go give their own babies a hug.

The outpouring was a shock to the original poster and he couldn't wait to show the thread to his parents.
