A father received an amazing Fathers' Day gift, the ability to see colour. He was born colour-blind and had lived his whole life without being able to see colours properly.
He had not bought himself a pair of corrective glasses due to the high cost. His daughter, @supatmiaa, decided to gift him a pair for Fathers' Day.
"My dad's colour-blind and literally since I can remember he’s talked about wanting the glasses that help the colour-blind, but they’ve always been super expensive. So this Fathers' Day I decided to give him the gift of colour. I love you so much dad. Happy Fathers' Day ❤️"
