This orphaned calf is now a part of the sweetest family

Baby calves are cute, and babies are adorable, but when you put them together, it’s almost too much to handle.

But we’re so thankful photographer Lacey Gray did just that.

“I’m a local photographer here in Mississippi,” Gray told TODAY. “People were tagging me this photo — it was of two calves and a baby. People were telling me ‘You have to do something like this. You’ve got to do it.’”

What began as inspiration for a photo soon became much more. Gray’s husband ‘s uncle connected her with a calf named Molly whose mom had recently died, and Molly quickly became a part of Gray’s family.

In fact, Molly even spent her first night in the Gray’s house, and Kinley read her bedtime stories.
