Divorced couple still takes a family portrait every year for their son

When children grow older and look back on their lives, they often turn to family portraits as the physical proof of their evolution and that of those they love. There are loving moments preserved forever, and moments we all love to laugh at, with silly grins, awkward poses and siblings in cheesy matching outfits. 

But for most children of divorce, these family portraits cease the moment their parents separate.

That, however, will not be the case for Bruce Dyson, the adorable little boy in the photos below. Though Bruce’s parents divorced shortly after his second birthday, they made a promise to continue taking portraits every year as a family.

“The top two photos were taken when Adam and I were married. The bottom two, taken nearly one year and over two years after our divorce was finalized,” Bruce’s mom, Victoria Baldwin, wrote in a now-viral post on the Love What Matters Facebook page. “We are not in love, we don’t always agree, we’re not best friends, sometimes we don’t even like one another. But you know what we are? We are forever connected because of our beautiful, smart, kind, compassionate, funny son.”

“Adam and I are not perfect co-parents, but we made a deal when we got divorced, to put our son first and to value the richness that we each bring to his life, for different reasons,” she writes. “So yes, we still have a family portrait taken, and I still pay good money to have the images printed, framed, and placed in our son’s bedroom; he may not grow up with parents who live in the same house… but he will grow up to see respect, kindness, empathy, compassion, perseverance, flexibility, and even sacrifice being modeled by both of his parents and he will know it is possible to fall out of love but never fall apart.”
