This Photo of a Baby Girl Being Held by Her Late Dad's Army Battalion Will Bring You to Tears

Christian Michelle Harris was born into a whole lot of love, but, unfortunately, without her father by her mom's side. Her dad, US Army Specialist Chris Harris, was killed in action in Afghanistan on Aug. 2, 2017, just one week after getting the news that his wife was pregnant. Britt held onto Chris's Army family throughout her pregnancy — they even helped her reveal that she was having a baby girl — and now, that same group of service members who knew and loved Chris are embracing baby Christian with open arms . . . literally.

In one of many gorgeous photos taken by Kendra of Pinehurst Photography, Christian — wearing a "My Daddy's my hero" onesie — can be seen from above, laying across Chris's fellow Army members' open hands. Britt shared the photo with the emotional caption: "Sometimes all we need to soothe our soul and ease our burdens is the loving hand of a friend gently touching our heart and lifting us toward love."
