#3 I’m a dad who has had custody of my daughter since she was a baby. This was the first Halloween I’ve missed because I had to work. She went trick or treating with her grandparents tonight last minute. They bought costumes and sent me this pic. It made me really happy.

#7 My boyfriend took this photo. It’s the first time I’ve looked at a picture of myself and not felt disgusted. I’m happy that I finally can accept my own body.
