Here’s something you don’t see every day: a 101-year age difference captured in a photo.
Rosa Canfield was born in 1913 and her great-granddaughter, Kaylee, entered the world 101 years later. Sarah Hamm knew she had to capture their meeting with a photo, but she never anticipated the impact it would have.
Days after posting it on the Life of Dad Facebook page, the image went viral and touched hearts across the globe.
Rosa’s photo currently has 2.5 million likes and over 77,000 shares, and it has inspired more than 120 people from around the world to post their own multi-generational photos. Patrick Quinn, who manages the Life of Dads page, says he was shocked by the number of responses he received.
“[Readers] thought of all of the things this woman has seen and lived through in her lifetime and imagined how her experiences will shape the life of the baby just starting her own journey,” Quinn told The Huffington Post.
The photo shares continue, and now hold even more meaning: Rosa passed away on March 30.
