Divorce hasn’t stopped Bruce Dyson’s parents from getting family portraits together every year. His mom Victoria Baldwin and her ex-husband, Adam Dyson, have been divorced since their son was two, but they’ve promised to continue taking family photos together because they are still linked through their four-year-old son.
“We are not in love, we don’t always agree, we’re not best friends, sometimes we don’t even like one another,” Baldwin shares in a now-viral post on the Love What Matters Facebook page. “But you know what we are? We are forever connected because of our beautiful, smart, kind, compassionate, funny son.”
Her own parents were divorced before she was two and she doesn’t have a single photo of the three of them, so she doesn’t want that to happen to Bruce. “He may not grow up with parents who live in the same house,” she writes, “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.”
