Dads thank moms in moving video

accreditation
A nappy company in Japan has created a powerful campaign to honour mothers for the most trying year in their lives, according to LJReview. The moms featured in the video are taking their babies to hospital for their annual check-ups. They have no idea that the babies’ dads have planned a special treat for them.
