"My daughter is blind and her grade 2 class is exchanging Valentines tomorrow," the user mack3r wrote. "She brailled 'love' on each one and then used a heart-shaped hole punch."

To ensure that her classmates could read the message, she also printed the letters on each of the cards.

In a message to Today.com, the dad, who didn't want to give his name, said his wife is very "artsy" and helped his daughter Amelia with the idea.

"Amelia survived bilateral retinoblastoma (eye cancer) which was discovered when she was 3 months old," he said. "Two years of various treatments left her blind, but alive and cancer free now since 2010."

The Seattle, Washington, couple said their little girl is one of the happiest girls they could ever imagine.

"We are very proud parents, and humbled by her strength."

It didn't take long for the picture to go viral and, by Friday, the Reddit post was filled with kind comments from other users.

"I never thought about doing this for my blind boyfriend...off to get our Braille punch!" one wrote.
