Fathers Day

This month we take a day out to celebrate our Dads (Pāpā).
D.A.D; affectionately known to some as “Deputy Assistant Director to Mum”. I would like to pay homage to all our Foster Dads. These are the men, who to be fair, don’t always sign up for the job. They get the role by default through some epiphany that befalls their lovely wives or partners. And bless their hearts: not only do they agree to become Foster Dads, but they do an amazing job at it! They can’t always make meetings or workshops because they’re holding down the fort or a job, but their commitment is no less than that of their partner. Foster Dads: you role model the patience, kindness and caring that real men share. Thank you! You are truly awesome!
