It’s amazing to see how former couples can stay civil despite a bitter divorce – all for the love of their son. This story recently went viral on social media and it has since touched a lot of netizens’ hearts.

Although already divorced, Victoria Baldwin and Adam Dyson take time to meet each year to take a family photo with Bruce, their son. This has been a tradition for the family and they intend to keep it that way, despite the couple’s differences.

The post was originally shared on the Facebook page of Love What Matters.

The divorced couple’s story touched the hearts of many.

In the said post, Victoria wrote:

“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. 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. We RESPECT one another. We remember that neither of our roles as parents take precedence over the other – neither one of us are any more important to the life of our son. We BOTH need to be there, we BOTH deserve quality time and quality memories with him. Neither of us blame one another for the direction our relationship took. We do not place blame on one another, and we certainly don’t place blame in the presence of our son.”

Their family photos are a stark contrast to how the world portrays divorced couples.

Theirs is a good example that yes, remaining civil is possible even after going separate ways.

Victoria likewise added:

“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. 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.”
