25 Hilarious Moments Where Grown-Ups Were Left Alone With a Kid
Some grown-ups really have a way with children. Sometimes their genius approach borders on insanity; sometimes it’s unbearably cute. Other times it’s so subtle and intelligent that you can’t help wishing to take parenting lessons from them.

Stephen Crowley, 32, is the father of little Hannah. She has a rare immune disorder, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), that demanded chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.

Her dad started to take "dangerous" photos of his daughter to bring a little humor to the life of the family. Later, the hobby continued.
Not only did Stephen’s scary photos entertain his Instagram followers but they also raised awareness about the disease: he’s had people asking him how they can become donors of blood or bone marrow.
