  1. I’m honoured and thrilled to have had this published here. Thanks to all who who have taken the time to read this.

  2. Please don’t refer to yourself as a failure because you can’t afford another child. It sounds like you are the best that anyone could hope for in a father. I wish you the best for you and your family.

    • Hi Kerrie,
      Thank you very much for your kind words – they are much appreciated. I’ll keep trying my best as I dad and I too would like to wish you the best also. Thank you.

  3. Kieron,

    I beg to differ. You are a real father, as well as a real dad. I care not for definitions … you’ve got the best of what’s needed, and what’s given. And give, you do. For me, the biological aspect of the definition of “father” ranks low in relevance within that definition. I admire you, and thanks for your superb writing, too! :)

    Best,
    Michael

    • Hi Michael,
      Thank you for your thoughts and you’re definitely right about getting the best of what’s needed. Thank you also for the compliments – I really appreciate your feedback :)

  4. Hi Kieron,

    One day those kids, like all children, will see their parents for their perfections and imperfections. When that day comes they will realise what being a father and a dad really means. Being a mother myself, and a daughter with previously rose-coloured glasses I went from idol using my mother who was constantly around to realising my father who was always away at work was an absolutely amazing parent because the time I did have with him made me so happy. It sounds like you do the same for your kids. And I’m sure they will see it all for what it is sooner or later.
