It's impossible to anticipate the challenges that may arise in the journey to becoming a parent.
Telegraph political cartoonist Bob Moran shared his emotional experience of becoming a dad to a daughter with special needs in this beautiful animated video.
Titled "Father's Days: the animated memoir of a first-time dad," the video shows Moran trying to become the father figure he always imagined he'd be as he helps his baby navigate through the NICU, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and more.
"Fathers are supposed to be heroes, aren't they?" he wonders.
It's a powerful, touching story that dares you not to cry.
