See Touching Photo of Woman, 92, Meeting Great-Granddaughter
The bonds of family are in full force in this sweet photo.
Millie Martin, 92, appears in this photograph with her three-day-old great-granddaughter, Penelope, or Pip, as she's being called.
The photo was snapped by the baby's father, Scott Martin, on his smartphone. He then posted it to Reddit, where it quickly went viral.
Millie is confined to a bed with heart failure, but still has her faculties. Pip's mother, Jennifer, said the meeting was oh-so-sweet:
We’d been sitting talking with Millie and finally Penelope woke up.They just sat and talked and looked at each other for a few minutes. It was a really special moment. She kept her in her lap for close to an hour."
Pip as she's being called, was born last Friday in Tumwater, Wash.
