Happy Father's Day! There is no question that fathers play a very important role in their kid's lives. And it is also a very challenging role. Some fathers even give up on fatherhood, but others don't. They teach, they protect, they love, they are there for their children, and most importantly, they have a special bond with their children that no one else has. In honor of all the fathers in this world who made us who we are today, we share a list, compiled by Bored Panda, of beautiful photos showing fathers holding their babies.

Do you have a picture of a father holding his baby? Add it to the list and don't forget to vote!
