“Happy Fathers Day”

“Happy Fathers Day”

Happy Father’s Day to the dads who drive from hospital to hospital, to the dads who research various medical terms, to the dads who do therapies every day.

To the dads who print social stories and timetables, to the dads who battle with the education system to ensure their child’s needs are met, to the dads who advocate for their child and to the dads who carry out medical care for their child.

To the dads who have slept in a hospital chair or spent sleepless nights watching over their child. To the dads who do tube feeding, to the dads who administer medication and to the dads who have trained in the medical procedures that their child requires.

Happy Father’s Day to the dads who have given up careers to be home with their child, to the dads who have sacrificed their own dreams to create dreams for their children.

To the dads who miss nights with friends or the sports match to be with their child. To the dads whose life has not quite turned out as planned, to the dads who always put their child’s needs before their own. To the dads who work every hour they can to provide for their families and to the dads who work several jobs to make sure their family have all they need.

Happy Father’s Day to the dads who read bedtime stories, to the dads who fix bikes & wheels, to the dads who adapt toys & games to fit their child’s needs. To the dads who make their child laugh, to the dads who comfort and dry up sad tears. To the dads who calm meltdowns and reassure worries. To the dads who take stresses away and to the dads who cheer their child on every step of the way.

Happy Father’s Day to the dads who have lost, to the dads who have felt pain, to the dads who never got to be. To the dads who won’t hear the words “daddy” and to the dads who have experienced heartache.

Happy Father’s Day to dads everywhere; to father figures and to anyone who fulfils the “daddy role”. Know today you are important; you are appreciated, and you are very much loved.
