For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a Dad.
To create a unique human being that is part of you, that will look to you to guide them through life, that will always own the largest part of your heart – nothing else in life has ever seemed to me to be as important, as blessed, as purposeful as that.
I was never somebody with a clear plan of where I wanted to get to in life and I would never have described myself as stereotypically ambitious; instead I’ve looked to grow and make progress through following my passions, applying myself, seeking opportunities and pursuing them as they arise. I am ever grateful for where this has attitude has led me.
But I have always been clear about wanting to have children; all other goals have been shaped around this certainty. And I was certain that I’d be a good Dad.
