Dearest Sons

You may like to think I became a father when the elder of you was born . The truth is that I started wearing the Father 'hat' on the day your mom and I discovered your presence.

It was 8 years ago that the journey started. The discovery of a blue cross indicator across a clearblue pregnancy kit kicked off the beginning of a chapter that will continue for the rest of my life.

Recently I was asked to give my view on the banning and pulping of books by NLB. The books in question are Tango makes Three, The White Swan Express : A story about adoption and Who is in my family ?

The books in question are 'It's so amazing', 'It's not the Stork' and and an ironically name title ' It's perfectly normal'.
