The Gallery - Men

The theme of this weeks Gallery by Tara Cain is Men - "Pictures of the men in your life - dads, sons, uncles, teachers..."


This is my Dad
And me. All 6lb 6oz of me!
Look how uncomfortable he looks. Bless.

When I found out I was pregnant, it took me months to tell my parents. It wasn't how it was meant to be... the excited couple calling the parents/in-laws to tell them the good news. No. I was terrified and alone.

Dad scooped me up in his arms. And told me everything was going to be ok. That's all I needed to hear in that moment.
