The Secret of Here
Warning: this email may cause tears
The New Fatherhood is an open and honest conversation about modern fatherhood, with a bunch of dads figuring it out as we go. Here's a bit more information if you're new here. You are one of the 9,564 dads (and curious non-dads) signed up. If you've been forwarded this by someone else, why not get your own?
🎉 Today marks the 100th weekly issue of The New Fatherhood, and I want to honour this milestone with something a little different. Last week I came across an illustrated story by Iain S. Thomas, I imagined reading it to my kids, and it had me crying in my local cafe. I contacted Iain, who kindly agreed to allow me to include it here for all of you.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Told you. What did you think?
Thank you to Iain S. Thomas for letting me share this beautiful story in its entirety. You can follow Iain on Twitter and Instagram, or buy his books here (I went for Every Word You Cannot Say). Branding and illustration by Selman Design. Survey by Sprig.
Send me links, questions, or reply and tell me your favourite essay from the 99 that came before this one. Here’s to another hundred. See you on Friday.
