Births and adorable sessions with newborns are among the photographer Lindsay Foster’s specialties. When the professional released images of the delivery of Milo, the son of BJ Barone, 34, and Frankie Nelson, 44, both teachers from Toronto, Canada, on July 28, she noticed an increase in her popularity. The images show the parents’ emotion when they received the child after the birth, on July 27, and became a һіt on ѕoсіаl networks. Very emotional, they accompanied all the labor. The most shared photo shows the two receiving the boy shortly after birth, next to their bare backs a technique to generate comfort for the child known as the “kangaroo method.”
A midwife frantically yelled, “shirts off,” to make sure that new fathers Frank Nelson and BJ Barone were ready to hold their newborn skin-to-skin, not their naked chests, just before a gestational surrogate gave birth to their son in Kingston, Ontario. Photographer Lindsay Foster was there to capture the event as a gift for the couple’s surrogate, Kathy Frechette. Prior to the umbilical cord being cut, Foster expertly captured the first time Milo was held by either of his fathers.
In the photos, a shirtless Nelson, 44, holds Milo to his сһeѕt, and Barone, 34, has an агm around each of them as the new dads shed teаrѕ of happiness. The raw emotion Foster captured, he said, “represents unconditional love for us and pure happiness.”
The picture has already gotten 50,000 likes and more than 9,000 shares. The majority of responses are supportive, with wishes for the new family’s health and happiness. Words simply cannot express what a joy it was to be present for such an amazing event. But I have a lot of faith that these pictures will be able to convey the deep admiration and affection that everyone has for this surrogate and the baby’s adoptive parents. These fathers will undoubtedly make two fantastic parents, the photographer commented on the social network.
Frankie posted the image and an emotional text beside it on her Facebook page. “This is our preferred image! It includes everyone who contributed to the joyous birth of our baby. Our surrogate mother and her husband are on the left, while the two midwives are positioned on the right. The umbilical chord was still attached to the newborn even though Kathy had just given birth! Truly a day I will never forget!”
“We appreciate all the likes, comments, and shares of our photo. Thanks to Lindsay Foster’s beautiful photos, this truly was a great period in our life and will live on forever. We were incredibly fortunate to give birth to a handsome, healthy baby boy! Although we might not agree with the bad remarks, we nevertheless respect all of them since they outweigh the disadvantages. Everyone has a right to express their own opinions. Pure love and acceptance are present at this time. Milo is surrounded by unwavering affection, and he will learn to accept everyone (including intolerant people) as he gets older and becomes aware of the diversity of families. During World LGBT Pride Week, Milo was born. The picture embodies everything that is proud. Love has no limits color, no gender, and no sex ual preference. Love is unconditional. Thanks again, from the bottom of our hearts!”
