We recently came across these touching photos from hopefullhappyandnappy.com of a dad giving his daughter his loving touch. Originally from Ethiopia, Miriam Tigist Green, 4, was adopted by Emory professor Clifton Green and his wife in 2005. This is her hair unbraided, before her father applies his weekly loving touch. His care and attention to detail show mastery of a task few white men ever contemplate. Miriam had short, patchy hair when Green’s first saw her in the orphanage in March 2005.

Take a look at the photos:
